songs for ‘stick’ season

November 15, 2009

John McCutcheon WintersongsAutumn’s closing out, winter’s not quite here yet. We’re waiting for snow.

This week’s World of Music features Wisconsin native John McCutcheon with a song about anticipating the snow, from his Wintersongs. We’ll make musical stops in Norway, Scotland, and Senegal in the weekly world tour – and find out what happens when a contemporary DJ remixes traditional stories from India’s ancient epic, the Ramayana. The result is unforgettable. The Easy Star All-Stars give up “Money” from Dub Side of the Moon, and the Denver Dub Collective channels Prince from their brand new release Purple Dub.

World of Music is a seasonal blend of blues, jazz, poetry, and world music every Monday on the Radiator, 3-5pm ET. Online, or at 105.9FM in Burlington, VT.

the sacred forest

November 14, 2009

The time and place: Saturday night at Burlington’s First Congregational Church

The artists: Banjo/pedal steel player Gordon Stone and his band, with the Senegalese choreographer Elhadji Mamadou Ba

The occasion: “The Secret Forest”, a West African dance interpretation of the worldly music from Gordon Stone’s new recording, Night Shade.

The result: Bluesy, soulful music as a backdrop for unbounded dance energy!
