Arts & Culture

Not quite done with Christmas yet, Kristina put together one more show of some traditional flamenco navidad cantes, though a few of them have detoured down the "nuevo" camino.

Winding down 2014 inna Echo Chamber…and welcoming in a brand New Year! Tons of great dub & reggae as usual, and a number of selections that seemed appropriate for this time of renewal. Also, a super extended “Auld Lang Syne” mix which included versions of the classic from Ghetto Priest, 11 Acorn Lane, The Drastics, Eban Schletter, and Pink Martini. Happy New year dubheads!

We speak with Michael Parker about his new novel All I Have in This World. He is the author of seven works of fiction, most recently the critically acclaimed novel The Watery Part of the World. Michael Parker has received many awards, including an O. Henry Award, a Pushcart Prize and a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship.

Had an interview in the studio this Tuesday with vocalist and producer Jay Bee from JB & The Routine who appear every Tuesday night at the Minnesota Music Cafe. We talked about a rally for a badly injured musician, saxophone man Pat Macken, who was hit by a car a month ago. This Sunday, January 4th, there will be a gathering of musicians at MMC to send our love and support to Pat and his family as he undergoes yet more surgery. The event is called "Minnesota Music Rally for Pat Macken". More info at Caring Bridge.com.

 

Music for the new year, including listener requests & a preview of what's coming in 2015!

She is committed to both private practice and group instruction in a variety of topics. She is also the developer and founder of Aurasolus Room Remedies.

Her work, Healing Presence, is the conceptual basis of which the physical expression is Ortho-Bionomy®, and Kate teaches one as the extension of the other.
