Music

Tour de Force

Sometimes you can't deny it. Sometimes, things align themselves up so well that they become a force all their own. Well, on this week's World Music Show (12/6), the forces of World Music beats line up in this way. The'll be quite a bit to digest and deal with, so it's a good thing that all these beats are done in the name of all that is good.

Son Seals and More Hart & Bonamassa!

Make sure you join us this week (12/6/14) on Time for fhe Blues as Henry Cook and I heat up the late night with some very cool blues. We’ve got all sorts of temptations and it’s the perfect time to indulge. After all, no one’s watching!

It was ten years ago this month that the world lost one of its best bluesmen, the legendary Son Seals. Seals was the epitome of cool and would often show up unannounced at clubs. You could feel the whispers that maybe tonight the man with the black body guitar would be here to set the club on fire.

Jump For Joy!

Right off the bat, let me say Happy Holidays and yada yada yada and all that stuff that goes along with the season. And, throughout this season, they'll be nuggets of World Music type of celebration tunes to bring the globe closer to us here in RVA. But, as for this week's World Music Show (11/29), let the fun commence!

In Your Ear Episode 31: Snyder Family Band

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 9:10am -- WCVE

Their technical ability, their timing, their remarkable musical maturity belie the tender years of Zeb and Samantha Snyder, a gifted and well rehearsed brother and sister from the hills of North Carolina. Along with their dad and mom Bud and Laine, and their charming kid brother Owen, they’re delighting audiences across the country…like ours. Coming up, we’ll devote the full hour this week to reliving part of their recent performance here in Richmond.

In Your Ear Episode 30: Sarah McQuaid; Kevin Burke and John Carty

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 3:28pm -- WCVE

We get started with a charming singer songwriter who spent many formative years in Ireland but whose music reflects the wide influences of her time spent in other lands as well. We present a voice likened to honey poured into wine, Sarah McQuaid. Then we hear from two Londoners who’ve made the traditional fiddle tunes of County Sligo in Ireland their own--Kevin Burke and John Carty.

In Your Ear Episode 29: The Bee Eaters; Anne & Pete Sibley

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 3:03pm -- WCVE

Enjoy artful arrangements of original material and choice Beatle covers at the hands of Boston’s Bee Eaters, comprised of Tashina Claridge on violin, brother Tristan Clarridge on cello, Wes Corbett on banjo and Simon Crisman on hammer dulcimer. We turn back the clock and reopen our musical vault to enjoy some tracks we didn’t have time for the first time we put Anne (guitar) & Pete Sibley (guitar and clawhammer banjo) on the radio.  

In Your Ear Episode 28: Robbin Thompson Band

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 2:51pm -- WCVE

Richmond’s venerable Robbin Thompson Band has made its mark over its more than three decades making music together, but what if we brought them together for the first time to do some of their choice tunes without the big amps and drum kits of a normal stage appearance? For the next hour, you’ll hear the result of that notion as JAMinc presents the Robbin Thompson Band--unplugged--and recorded live in Studio A. 

In Your Ear Episode 27: Missy Raines & the New Hip; Jim Hurst

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 12:14pm -- WCVE

The two made music together on the road and in the studio with Claire Lynch and as a duo, but Missy Raines and Jim Hurst have since followed their own paths, leading to separate but back to back appearances at our In Your Ear studio concert series. We bring you highlights from both performances. Missy Raines and her progressive acoustic band, the New Hip and guitar virtuoso and balladeer Jim Hurst share the next hour of In Your Ear.
