In the Tradition 12/11 - The Last Waltz
WCUW
91.3fm / streaming at wcuw.org / live365 app
Tuesday, 12/11/12, 7-9pm



After nearly three years producing and hosting In the Tradition I will be moving on. It has been a pleasure presenting, both live in studio and by telephone, many artists who I have he honor of being friends. Tonight I'll be playing their music for the last time on community radio WCUW.

I expect a few calls from past guests "In the Tradition" has been proud to support. Confirmed so far... Si Kahn, Darol Anger, Gerry Katz (Boston Bluegrass Union), Sean Smith (BCMFest), Maggie MacKay (Chasing Blue) ..... more are being added, and no doubt there will be surprises.

Review past program information in the event archives - and in WCUW news. It is my sincere hope that the other WCUW programmers or the office will begin to communicate program information to the public via this underutilized resource.

The last part of the program belongs to Andy Cohen - http://www.andycohenmusic.net/ - who will be calling to talk about coming in to the area to produce an album and a few choice gigs.
Nov. 19th feature at Geoff Bartley's Open Mic at the Cantab
Nov. 30, House concert at Dr. David Lotto's, Pittsfield, MA
Besides being a fabulous acoustic blues artist Andy, a Dorchester native, serves as Folk Alliance International Traditional Studies Coordinator, his role being "advocate for traditional music and its players."
"Andy Cohen grew up in a house with a piano and a lot of Dixieland Jazz records, amplified after a while by a cornet that his dad got him. At about fifteen, he got bitten by the Folk Music bug, and soon got to hear records by Big Bill Broonzy and the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, both of which reminded him of the music he grew up to. At sixteen, he saw Rev. Gary Davis, and his course was set. He knew he had it in him to follow, study, perform and promote the music of the southeast quadrant, America¹s great musical fountainhead. Although he's done other things- a certain amount of writing, and physical labor from dishwashing and railroading to archaeology, playing the old tunes is what he does best."

Just after 8pm the one and only Reggie Harris - http://www.kimandreggie.com/ - will be calling to talk about his and Kim's new album, "Resurrection Day" , on Appleseed Reciords, due to be released on October 30. Reggie has supplied not one but TWO audio files, which will be given their Massachusetts if not world premier.

Traffic - Present figures put the number of victims of human trafficking at about 27 million around the world. It is a billion dollar industry. The two stories here are true and remarkably tame in detail compared to most tales of this inhumanity.

Roll On Woody- In this, the 100th anniversary year of his birth. this is Reggie’s take on the storied troubadour.

Kim and Reggie Harris Biography

Consummate musicians and storytellers, Kim and Reggie Harris combine a strong folk and gospel legacy with a solid background in classical, rock, jazz and pop music. Creative curiosity, years of road and stage experience and interactions with performers such as Pete Seeger, Ysaye Barnwell, Jay Leno, Tom Paxton, Bernice Johnson Reagon, Harry Belafonte and others, has led them to produce music that entertains and inspires.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, a city rich in cultural and musical heritage, Kim and Reggie's early exposure to the diversity of musical styles and genres was nurtured in the schools and churches of their youth.

Audiences at venues such as The Kennedy Center, The Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Smithsonian Institute, Reunion Arena in TX, the Psalm Festival in Graz, Austria, as well as a myriad of theatre arts centers, festivals, universities and schools, have given this inspiring duo standing ovations for their vibrant performances.

As a result of their CDs "Steal Away" and Get On Board" (Appleseed Recordings) and materials developed in their work with the Kennedy Center, Kim and Reggie have earned wide acclaimed for their contributions to the resources and knowledge base - in historical and educational circles - on the Underground Railroad and the modern civil rights movement.

With numerous recordings on the Appleseed Recordings and the Folk Era labels they are also featured on a number of compilations, films and educational projects worldwide.

Kim is presently pursuing a Ph.D. at Union Theological Seminary in NYC and both continue to write, record and produce music as a means to promote creativity, education, social responsibility and understanding in the world community!

Kim and Reggie Harris are dynamic and superbly talented traditional folk performers, whose captivating stage presence and unique harmonies has earned the respect and love of audiences throughout the US, Canada and Europe for over 30 years. They are unique in their ability to entertain audiences of any age and background as they blend their talents as singers, songwriters, educators, interpreters of history and cultural advocates.

Program News : In the Tradition 11/27: Old Time Music from the Original 78rpm Recordings, w/ guests Brittany Haas and Moonshine Holler
Posted by Notlob on 2012/11/13 7:57:55 (1138 reads)

7-9pm
100% old time music from the original 78 rpm recordings.
It doesn't get any scratcier that this!
Featuring artists from A A Gray to Young Brothers Tennessee Band



Brittany Haas (Crooked Still) will be my guest by phone! We will be talking about her upcoming "folk-holiday music tour" coming this way in December. The tour featurs Tim O'Brien, Scott Law, Lauren Rioux, Corey DiMario and Brittany, stops will be in Cambridge, Portland, ME and Fall River.

Joining me live in studio will be Paula Bradley and Bill Dillof!

Moonshine Holler, the husband and wife duet of Paula Bradley and Bill Dillof, captures the essence of American music: hillbilly blues, ballads and breakdowns with some knock-your-socks-off flatfoot dancing to boot. Known for their musical prowess on more instruments than they can juggle (banjo, fiddle, guitar, Hawaiian guitar, harmonica, ukulele, kazoo), Paula and Bill are two performers steeped in old time traditional music who have performed and taught across the country and abroad. Paula toured the US and Germany on banjo with old-time darlings "Uncle Earl" as well as teamed up with fiddle powerhouses Bruce Molsky and Brittany Haas (Crooked Still) for a tour of Sweden. Paula, along with Bruce, was also a member of the trio “Jawbone” featuring banjo innovator Tony Trischka and appears on Tony Trischka’s latest CD release “Territory”, winner of the 2009 Americana Awards. She has also recorded and performed with old time trios The Rhythm Rats (with Kenny Jackson and Whitt Mead) and The Haywire Gang (with Mac Benford and John Hoffmann). These days she also tickles the ivories and shares lead singing duties in the NE-based honky tonk combo Girl Howdy and fronts her own bluesy roots combo The Twangbusters. Bill is also a member of the legendary Canebrake Rattlers, a NYC-based stringband known for their authentic “78 rpm” sound. He has an acclaimed old-time CD “Been on the Job Too Long” recorded with Dave Rice and Joe LaRose as "The Cuyahogians". Between them, Paula and Bill have performed at many festivals including the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Alaska Folk Festival, the Wheatland Music Festival, MN OT and Bluegrass Festival, Bluff Country Gathering, Pinewoods Folk Music Week, Hillbilly Days in Pikeville, KY, and Hudson Clearwater Revival. Additionally, they are sought-after traditional music teachers and have been staff instructors at Augusta (Elkins, WV) and Swannanoa (Asheville, NC) Old-Time Weeks, Rocky Mountain Fiddle Camp, Bluff Country Gathering and the Maryland Banjo Academy.
