Mary Rannie is the principal double bass of the Victoria Symphony in British Columbia, Canada, the double bassist in the Galiano Ensemble, and former bass instructor at the University of Victoria. She is also the author of Gary Karr: Life on the G String, which chronicles the remarkable career of one of the most influential bassists in history.

We talk about the inspiration for the book, the decade-plus process of collating and outlining, what it was like to actually finish this book, takeaways from the whole experience, and much more.
