At 7pm Eastern time, GDPR pays tribute to the legendary Luciano Pavarotti… and at 7:30pm, just ahead of our Friday Folk, Blues & Roots, we premiere a new program, Michael Gaither’s Songs and Stories, which features folk artist Michael’s fascinating looks into the process of song creation and interviews with other artists. Glorious music and diverse sounds on your progressive public radio… Join us!
And for further information on what you’ll hear during tonight’s installment of Songs and Stories, which features fiddler extraordinaire Mark O’Connor, Michael has provided handy-dandy links:
- Mark O’Connor Fiddle Camp
- Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music
- Aspen Music Festival
- Strawberry Music Festival
- The “Strength In Numbers” CD and the “Appalachian Journey” CD
- Subscribe to Songs and Stories in iTunes
By the way, Mark O’Connor will perform with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra in early 2008, from Jan. 31-Feb. 3. I’m telling you, these concerts are a must (and any opportunity to support our incredible symphony and maestra Marin Alsop is one you must take!).
Note: “Songs and Stories” is sponsored by Michael Gaither’s beautiful LP Spotted Mule and Other Tales.
