We wish to connect with as many musicians and fans as possible . so feel free to join us Tuesday April 23 at 8pm sharp.
There is so much to celebrate in the Mid-Atlantic region - and one of the most anticipated of those celebrations is The Potomac Jazz & Seafood Festival!
For one Saturday in July, everybody at Colton's Point (overlooking the beautiful Potomac) becomes "family" - that's how the closeknit organizers feel about their guests. Kim Cullins is the most articulate spokesperson for the Festival - and she will join us on Thursday, May 9th! Kim works for the Museum Division of St. Mary's County Department of Recreation and Parks. So, yes, she's our Amy Poehler :-D
Kim will talk about the urgency of getting your tickets - they go on sale on the first of June. There are only 800 sold each year and they go QUICKLY! We think that's going to be the case for this year, especially - because the acts are different than what you'd normally see at an outdoor venue. AND this lineup is explosive!
Jessy J opens up the Festival at three - yes! Following our sultry saxstress - from Columbus, Ohio - The Urban Jazz Coalition! Seven musicians = 7th Heaven! Try to stay in your seat (we dare you!) for the closing act: EAST BAY SOUL! Indeed, true funk soldiers will gather in historic Maryland for a NEW historic occasion - the day that The Potomac Jazz & Seafood Festival punches a hole in the sky! Greg Adams and his fabulous merry men are bringing their Oakland hybrid Jazz, Funk and Soul to fans who will be begging for mercy before the night is over. We might as well call it The Potomac Jazz and Seafood Love Fest :-D
Greg Adams will be stopping by to say hello on Tuesday - and we don't know who ELSE might be joining him! It's sure to be a great time - and a history lesson - wait until you hear the background of the Festival!
See you at one for the fun - The Chat Room is waiting.
If you remember the multi-talented Janice Rhoshalle Littlejohn from the first interview that we did, you know what FUN we had! Tuesday, May 21st, promises more of same. But we also might hit a nerve. You would think that the subject of "Women in Jazz" wouldn't be a big deal in 2013, but there are many who would rather not discuss it. Janice and I relish that idea :) My co-host for the day is the director and producer of a fantastic documentary called, "...But Can She Play?" In it, wondrous women on instruments are featured - and their stories are told.
We'll have more of those tales when we hear from three (at least!) formidable talents on the Jazz scene.. One of the most visible musicians in Contemporary Jazz, Gail Jhonson, joins us! Her keyboard wizardry has caught the ears of an international audience - and her CD, "Herstory", writes another chapter in the evolution of strong female composition. The creation of "Jazz in Pink" is another testimony to this woman's creativity.
Grace Kelly just turned 21, but she has lived music more than most twice her age! Adept at saxophone, she has spun heads with her expertise and vision. Concerts don't lie - you can hear the maturity in her playing via "Live at Sculler's." Grace was a recent guest on the show - and is excited to be able to participate again, especially since she is featured in Janice's film!
In it as well is Hailey Niswanger, also a saxophonist of rare maturity, inspired by John Coltrane. Hailey has worked closely with Esperanza Spalding and a myriad of household names. She has been recognized by Berklee as someone special - an educator as well as performer. One listen to "Confeddie" and "The Keeper" and you'll hear HOW special!
The fun starts at ONE p.m. Eastern!
Part 2 of the Native America Music and Musicians The Americas contain hundreds of native communities, each with its own distinctive history, language, and musical culture. These communities—although united in placing music at the centre of public life—have developed extraordinarily diverse and multifaceted performance traditions. In latter years, Native Americans have created a special niche in the music industry and within that niche have sprung a number of Native American Musicians and Genres.
This week hostess Lisa Sahani, WnT Board Member is joined by musical guest Steven Clawson. There is a SPECIAL SURPRISE planned during the show, so join us live!!
South Georgia native Steven Clawson is a blues, rock n’ roll and country which are on the same beat. That beat, mixed with a little Cajun roots brings a sound that Steven and his fans like to call “Southern Soul”. Steven’s love of music and performing began at an early age, with much encouragement from his family. He grew up in Thomasville, Ga., playing guitar and singing along to Garth Brooks. He decided to pursue his dreams and love for music by moving to Nashville with his wife, who he met in first grade. Steven also has a passion for songwriting, which has developed from being an avid reader.His musical influences include Elvis Presley, Kenny Loggins and his favorite country singer, Brooks.
