This week, conversations with KT Nelson and Brenda Way of ODC/Dance, to talk about their Downtown Season; the award-winning wind quintet The City of Tomorrow will be in the studio for a live performance; a preview of this week’s Peninsula Symphony concerts; plus critic Peter Robinson explores some of the idiosyncrasies of St. Patrick’s Day. David Latulippe is your host. Originally broadcast on Thursday, March 14 at 1pm.
This song sounds Irish – and it is. But the Black Brothers, who perform it, live in the Bay Area. Brother Michael is a lecturer at San Francisco State University, and brother Shay has a weekly Irish show in Berkeley.
This Saturday the Black Brothers will be at the Larkspur Theater, in Larkspur, for St. Patrick’s Day! Their performance begins at 8pm, following a documentary about Irish Step Dancing.
KALW believes in zigging when other stations are zagging. So instead of an Irish band for St. Patrick’s Day, we’re suggesting the island rhythm rock of The Band Sage - which you're hearing now. They’ll be singing and swaying at 19 Broadway in Fairfax on Saturday, March 17. Music starts at 9pm. And it’s still OK to wear green.
