Alive & Kicking

First off, my apologies to the 80s band Simple Minds. I'm hijacking their album title for this week's World Music Show (6/15) blog. I'm doing this with good reason, though. You see, throughout the Summer months, I'll be featuring snippets of live music from various World Music artists as a way to celebrate one of the best times to see live music. 

Have Guitar, Will Travel

On the cusp of the summer season (or rather the impending onslaught of humidity-riddled days), I thought it fitting to pepper a few of the upcoming shows with some live music. To kick off this week's World Music Show (6/8), we'll start this celebration with some highlights from a music festival that took place in Nijmegen, which is in the Netherlands.

Teles, Strats, & Pauls O My!...Southern Style

For non guitar players, that’s the way we 6-stringers often refer to the iconic invention of Leo Fender & Les Paul.The 
The Telecaster, Stratoscaster and Les Paul--3 different guitar styles which have fueled the music industry and every musical genre you can imagine. It could take months to definitely survey all the categories and sub-categories where these great electric guitars were used.

Tonight...a shortcut. At least as long as one hour will allow. And so we enter southern soul/blues/alt country.

Not Lost in Translation

It may seem obvious, but I think it bares repeating, that music is a universal language. There's nothing "lost in translation" when you're listening. I mean, you may not understand the words being sung, but beats are a global thing, right? So in typical World Music Show fashion, this week's show (6/1) will run the gamut of songs that you may or may not understand. But that's ok, because it's just music. Nothing to fear here from your speakers.
