Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

It’s another Sunday morning talk about upcoming art on Home Grown except this time, David and Clinton attempt to do it without Leslie’s class and charm. First, we welcome to the show for the first time Beryl Solla, Professor of Art from Piedmont Virginia Community College and curator of their art galleries. Both their North and South galleries have shows opening up, but David and Clinton get so sidetracked immediately talking art with Beryl that we almost don’t get to them. Fortunately our next guest is an old friend of the show, Edward Warwick White from Four County Players, and he knows how to keep us on track … somewhat. (There was the moment where Clinton and David pitched their musical version of Othello.) Four County’s about to launch their anniversary show The Best of Barboursville: A 45th Anniversary Musical Revue. It’s two great guests that guest great together as David and Clinton struggle to get the Facebook Live Feed to work in the background. That means it’s just another Sunday morning 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.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Home Grown gives you a show that makes white supremacists throw up! First, Estela Knott and Dave Berzonsky from LUA do their best impressions of ethnomusicologists when talking about their ongoing attempts to explore and bring together Mexican, Appalachian, South American, and Jewish roots music. (Oh, and they play a couple of songs too!) Then writer Amanda Korman returns to the show — this time in her role as Communications and Outreach Coordinator for The Women’s Initiative. They are currently accepting submissions for their Challenge into Change Writing Contest, and to that end, Amanda brings by Aerial Perkins, winner of last year’s contest to read her winning essay, “Pretty Brown Girl” on the air. Your hosts Clinton Johnston and Leslie M. Scott-Jones try to take a page from Aerial and not “put fear on the table” all on this week’s Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

On today’s Home Grown it gets more than a little political as David Vaughn Straughn and Leslie M.
