Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, Donald Trump's pick for attorney general, will face the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday (1/10) and Wednesday (1/11) for his confirmation hearing.

You may know him from his band Eddie From Ohio or through his moving work in SPARC’s Live Art productions over the last few years. Robbie Schaefer is not just another singer/songwriter…trying to capture his essence as a musician and a human being is next to impossible in a few short words.

In Your Ear Episode 42: Velvet Caravan

Tue, 01/03/2017 - 11:52am -- WCVE

Georgia’s five-man Velvet Caravan rolled into RVA back in the April of 2016 with a wagon load of low country gypsy swing and nearly more showmanship than our little 80-seat recording studio could hold. They’ve been a band for only five years but their musicianship obviously goes back much further than that. They obviously owe a great directional debt to pathfinder Django Reinhart. But like all musicians worth their salt, these five engaging vagabonds take the ball and run with it, with great joy.
