THURS OCT 19th NOON CDT on EQUESTRIAN LEGACY RADIO
We welcome award winning singer/songwriter Almeda Bradshaw to this weeks CAMPFIRE CAFE.
Almeda grew up listening to her dad’s lp collection of big bands, the Boston Pops and classical orchestra music until an eye-opening epiphany happened while watching the Beatles’ American debut on the Ed Sullivan Show. Though classically trained through college on piano and cello, her musical alter-ego was fed through the guitar which she taught herself to play at age thirteen. It was the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s "Circle" album that turned her on to the flat picking style of Mother Maybelle Carter. Though covers of Bob Dylan, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Joni Mitchell, Fleetwood Mac and other songs of great artists from the 60s and 70s took over her teenage years, Almeda later returned to the heart of her musical soul in Western Americana/Roots Music, an eclectic mix of cowboy, bluegrass, old-time, folk and spirituals. There she remains.
Tom Shinall Director of Marketing with the Booth Western Art Museum joins us to talk about their upcoming Cowboy Festival & Symposium.
