This week we have a special treat on The A-List, a wonderful, one-woman powerhouse of a musician, Zoë Keating.
Recently named one of the Hot 20 people of 2009 by 7x7 magazine, they dubbed her, "Avant-Cellist." It's a fitting description, but for my part, I am interested in the way Zoë has used the Web and social media to engage with and stay in touch with her fans.
With more than 1.3 million followers on Twitter (@zoecello), she describes herself there as, "Cello, computers and pancakes. The daily twitterings of a professional avant cellist and amateur nerd." A wonderfully humble description for an immense and innovative talent.
Learning is always going on; it is impossible to avoid learning something at any given moment. Likewise, whether we realize it or not, we are constantly teaching the world around us. Veronica is joined by Liz Erickson to discuss our ongoing conscious and unconscious lifelong education.
In the first half of the show, we will explore the ways in which learning unfolds. How does the acquisition of skills and knowledge differ between children and adults? What are the major blocks to learning and how can we overcome them? In what ways are we all teachers? What tools will enable our internal professors to positively influence all those we encounter?
Later in the program, Veronica will channel Eloheim to gain their insight on the learning process, on channeling as a form of teaching, and on how acquiring greater skills as students and teachers can help us transform the experience of being human.
Elizabeth J. K. Erickson enjoys blending musical styles and bringing her music to unusual places.

Shana Tucker is a singer/songwriter and cellist whose self-described ChamberSoul style of music is a sultry pastiche of acoustic pop and soulful, jazz-influenced contemporary folk. Shana's debut solo project, "SHiNE" (MamaGooch Music), outlines a musical journey that indeed celebrates the major influences of everyday life: relationship, laughter, love...loss, rediscovery, and the never-ending journey towards heightened levels of peace, understanding and self-acceptance. Splitting her time between Durham, NC and Las Vegas, where she sings and plays cello for the show, "KA" by Cirque du Soleil, Shana performs an eclectic mix of originals, covers which span the decades, and jazz standards both known and obscure to audiences of all ages. She also conducts songwriting workshops and residencies that tap into the creative selves of budding artists in grades K-12, and mentors young string players who have aspirations for performing in non-traditional/non-classical environments. Shana is a storyteller; her music indeed speaks for itself, through well-crafted lyrics, subtle, lingering melodies, and compositions that boast a unique, satisfying blend of humor and gravity. Her music is something worth sharing, worth keeping, worth hearing more of. -- www.shanatucker.com

Join host Robert Forto as he welcomes musician and musher Sabe Flores to Mushing Radio.
It is hard to describe Sabe Flores’s style. Picture a classically trained cellist gone wild. Sabe has broken from the traditions and lets her voice fly with her original songs which consist of a rocking cello and vocals.
Sabe is a 3rd generation Fairbanks, Alaskan who started playing Suzuki cello when she was four. In her teenage years she auditioned for Idyllwild Arts Academy and attended sophomore year of high school there. At Idyllwild she studied with teacher John Walz, a student of the legendary Pierre Fournier and the principle cellist of the Los Angeles Opera. John Walz was a great inspiration and gave new meaning to her music. Something was missing though. She felt a great love for music but knew it was time to find what really made her passion burn.
During one summer she met cellist David Chew and was invited to attend his cello Festival, RICE, in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. In Brazil she met Eugene Friesen, who later became her cello teacher at Berklee College of music In the falls of 2010 and 2011. There she also studied with multi instrumentalist Rob Thomas.
Sabe is presently enjoying her life as a musical vagabond. She is currently gigging around Alaska and will be on her way to Nashville in the spring of 2014 where she has previously opened up for the Steeldrivers and the Roland White Band. When in Alaska she enjoys spending time with her farm animals and her boyfriend, Lance Mackey’s sled dogs.
Her first CD. Dumpster Dreams, was recorded in Seattle and is an interesting mix of multiple cello tracks and voice. You can visit her website at www.sabeflores.com.

"Finding Happiness"...A Film...A Vision...A True Story
Skeptical Reporter Discovers the Truth Behind What It's Like to Live in a Conscious Community. Part Fiction, Part Documentary, a Real Inside Look at an unusual spiritual community
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in a real conscious community where people live in harmony, collaboration, compassion, cooperation, peace and love? That's what skeptical reporter Juliet (Elizabeth Rohm of American Hustle, Miss Congeniality 2) set out to investigate. On assignment from her editor at Profiles Magazine, this urban chic cynic is plopped in the middle of a modern day Utopia--and she finds what she never expected to discover--True Happiness.
The fascinating thing about the charming, satisfying and enlightening film, Finding Happiness, is that it is only partly fiction! It is filmed at the Ananda Village in the Sierra Nevada Foothills of northern California. The people who Juliet discovers there are real people talking about their real life experience in genuine, unscripted interviews.
David Eby began his musical studies at 6, and made his public debut as cellist with the Pittsburgh Symphony at 16. He attended the Eastman School of Music where he received the Performer’s Certificate and B.M.
He is featured in the film, FINDING HAPPINESS as the tour guide for the visiting journalist. He produced, composed, arranged, and recorded the soundtrack for FINDING HAPPINESS.
