Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, guest host Chris Baumer joins Clinton to welcome members of The Ascendants Shankari Bowmaster and Gabe Gavin to talk about kirtan and its intersection of art and spirituality. Then they spent the next part of the show with Kevin Munro, director of The Charlottesville Community Drum Choir to talk about his love affair with African drumming and to patiently chuckle at Clinton’s Wakanda jokes. It’s two local artists inspired by decidedly non-local art forms on this week’s Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie both have been pulled away, so we bring in the big guns with guest host Chris Baumer. As far as our guests are concerned, the third time’s a charm with one of our favorite people, Carmel Clavin, Staunton’s Empress Empressaria. It’s time for her and her crew to start collecting artist submissions for the Third Annual Shenandoah Fringe Festival. We talk to her about how the Fringe Fest has gone in the past three years and maybe get her to drop a few bon mots about art and culture. Then … we rock out with Bianca Vee and David D from Butterfly Vendetta. Their third album Loud and Clear is out. We play a couple of songs from it and talk about their writing process. Three is definitely a magic number on this week’s Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown our co-host Leslie M. Scott-Jones returns from abroad just in time jam with David and talk to … Boomie Pedersen, Chris Baumer, and Kiri Gardner from Live Arts Theater. They are cast members of the upcoming production, Edward Albee’s A Delicate Balance. The conversation flows from what Albee’s work brings to the stage to the recent casting controversy to background of this production. Then, just when you thought the show couldn’t get better, artist Bob Anderson visits the show for the first time in anticipation of his upcoming exhibit featuring his figure drawing that is surprisingly both realistic and abstract at the same time. Listen to how Picasso and Cubism influenced this non-Cubist show — Les desmoiselles at McGuffey Art Center. As always, it’s artists talking art on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
