In celebration of International Women’s Day, all of the music played during the first hour is interpreted by Latin American women. The last ½ hour includes some examples of the Mexican regional genre “Son Huasteco” with “Los Camperos de Valles” and the last 9 minutes consist of a short story (“Don Chico que vuela”) by the Mexican writer Eraclio Zepeda, read by the author himself.
Today we had many guests. We began with local mystery writer and Irish singer, Erin Hart. Erin sang a few songs about selkie and we talked about her latest book False Mermaid.
During the second hour we had members of the Women Performhers with local composer Asako Hirabayashi. There was also an interview with local Irish accordion master Paddy O’Brien talking about his group, Chulrua.
And the show finished out with Norah Rendal and Nathan Gourey of Two Tap Trio, playing and talking about their new CD.
