Thursday night (10/30) at 8:00 p.m. at VCU’s Singleton Center, drummer Scott Clark will lead his group The Scott Clark 4tet in a performance of a new work called “Bury My Heart,” a suite that draws on the history of Native Americans and their subjugation by the United States Government. The title for the work comes from Dee Brown’s 1970 book Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.
The Oberon Quartet, a local resident group at St. Catherine’s and St. Christopher’s Schools, stopped by the 88.9 WCVE studios Friday afternoon (10/24) to perform live and talk about their upcoming concert. The concert will be held Monday evening, October 27th at 7:00 p.m. in Bannard Chapel at St. Catherine’s School on Grove Avenue.
Sure, that title is a mixed up metaphor. But I could think of no better nod to the great chunk of tunes we'll hear on this week's World Music Show (10/25). And, as the headline suggests, a good portion of the show will be dedicated to music from different parts of Africa.
If you could only look at these pictures and trust that what's lined up on the virtual turntable for this week's World Music Show (10/18), will be songs by some of greatest World Music musicians, as well as upcoming artists, ever assembled in a two-hour chunk. But alas, you'll have to trust my song selecting abilities (and not the fact that I just used the word "alas" in a sentence). And within this week's blog, I'll try my best to convey why you should join me for this week's show.
Reason #1--Hour 1:
Lots of people enjoy Autumn. I love it. And just as much, I love programming for both my classical show and The Electric Croude for third season in general and October in particular. While TEC initially began about 30 years ago as a specialty program for anglo/celtic music...in the past 3 decades it has expanded to include alternative/global folk/jazz/progressive rock/classical and more. That’s certainly true of what you’ll hear over the course of my four special October shows.
