It’s already been more than two years since Robbin Thompson left us. He’d been a pivotal part of the Richmond music scene as a singer, songwriter, producer, and legitimate rock star. But his legacy continues, thanks in part to the live recordings that live in the archives at In Your Ear Studios.
In Your Ear
Sharing an evening with Lindsay Lou and the Flatbellys is like hanging out at a very high level jam session among close and accomplished friends. This Michigan bred band now based in Nashville brings a warm and infectious attitude to their own brand of Americana.
A native of Colorado, but a citizen of the world. Well traveled and adventurous Delta bluesman Corey Harris has made a career out of infusing the Delta blues with the music of West Africa, the Caribbean and New Orleans to make a significant statement that commands attention. In this edition of the program, we’ll share highlights of an intimate Studio A performance that spotlights his songs and the stories behind them.
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.
