In Your Ear Episode 51: Eli West & Friends

Thu, 11/30/2017 - 10:19am -- WCVE

Our special guests for this week’s program hail from both coasts and bring their own individual artistry and sensibilities to a seasoned trio led by Seattle’s Eli West, a gifted guitarist and songwriter who we first encountered in a brotherly vocal duo with fellow Northwesterner Cahalen Morrison. Those shoes would be filled on this March evening by mandolinist and professor at the Berklee College of Music, Joe K. Walsh who’s toured with Darol Anger, the Gibson Brothers and Joy Kills Sorrow.

Those of you who’ve been to many of our concerts over the years and listened to this program are no doubt aware of how often we seem to draw from the rich proving ground of roots music being created in Carolina. Past Studio A guests include the Kruger Brothers, the Harris and Moore Brothers, Mipso, River Whyless and the Snyder Family. All with tar on their heels.

In Your Ear Episode 48: Sherman Holmes Project

This fall 2017 IYE season opener is basically the 2nd set of a singular evening of music that was presented in conjunction with the Virginia Folklife Program, a perennially favorite part of the Richmond Folk Festival each year. Recorded in February of 2017, it’s led by Virginia’s Folklorist Jon Lohman, who gathered a potent group of performers around the venerable Sherman Holmes, the surviving member Christchurch, Virginia’s Holmes Brothers.
