Acclaimed Jazz bassist moonlights as acclaimed religion blogger

Chicago’s Karl Seigfried is recognized for his work in two completely different worlds. He’s a double-bassist of the first magnitude; writing, performing and recording with both Jazz bands and classical orchestras. He’s also one of the country’s most respected researchers and lecturers on Norse mythology. His Norse Mythology Blog has won the top spot in the international Weblog Awards three years in a row. Seigfried talks about joining the Weblog Hall of Fame, and how he went from laying down grooves to spinning tales of ancient gods and heroes. (Photo: Flickr/Beefy Basses)
