Jake’s Take’s Podcast: Trapper Schoepp Visits!

It is a pleasure to welcome singer-songwriter Trapper Schoepp to The Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar Podcast. 

In 2019, the Milwaukee resident made headlines when he put a significant accomplishment on his resume – a co-write with music legend Bob Dylan. In 1961, the “Blowin’ in the Wind” singer-songwriter recorded a song about Wisconsin in the Columbia Studios. However, he lost the lyrics sheet. Years later, the lyrics resurfaced, and it was auctioned for $30,000. Trapper took the opportunity and set the words to music. With Bob Dylan’s permission, he released the song – “On, Wisconsin,” and it caught the attention of significant media outlets such as Billboard, National Public Radio (NPR), and Rolling Stone. 

Throughout his career, Trapper shared the stage with a plethora of Americana groups such as Frank Turner, the Jayhawks, Old 97’s, and the Wallflowers. He also performed live streams for socially conscious organizations such as Guitars 4 Vets, Harmony 4 Hope, and RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network).

In this edition of The Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar PodcastTrapper Schoepp spoke about his new album: May Day, and some of the stories behind some of the tracks. He also talked about opening for Wilco on September 10 for Summerfest.
