We hope you will join us this Saturday night (2/6/16) on Time for the Blues as Henry and I have put together a great show with some very exciting blues that we think you are really going to enjoy! Plus we're featuring Texas bluesman Benny Turner, appearing in Richmond next weekend!
If you're a frequent listener to the World Music Show, then you may know that I love cover songs--you know, when a World Music artist or band covers a well known song or artist, but does it in their own unique and worldly way. Well, on this week's World Music Show (1/30), I'll do this once again. However, it'll come with a tinge of sadness. But then we'll take that tinge and tweak it back up to some positive beats.
The Symphony Musicians of Richmond will present a benefit concert for the United Way of Greater Richmond & Petersburg on Monday, February 1st at 7:00 p.m. at St. Michael Catholic Church in Glen Allen.
It'll be a combination of African music on this week's World Music Show (1/23). From Afro-Latino to Afro-Portuguese to African Blues, we'll dip our toe into the pool of beautiful sounds that this continent has to offer. Plus, we'll also check out some strong female voices from around the globe as well as some Asian Groove music.
