Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie talk to great musicians doing great music for great causes. First, Angel Metro, Alethea Leventhal – Ships in the Night, and Christina Fleming & Nicole Rimel / Please Don’t Tell come on the show to talk about their joint benefit concert at the Southern Cafe and Music Hall. We talk to the quartet about how they came to share the bill on this concert and about their beneficiary — The Women’s Initiative. We also get some thoughts about why it’s so rare to see concerts that only have female acts (and about how it’s not the important thing to just think of them that way). Next, Jaewar from Vibe Riot returns to the show, because it’s time for Vibe Fest 2019: Unity Vibes! This year, Vibe Fest is a part of Charlottesville’s Unity Days. We talk to Jaewar about what he has learned from producing three previous Vibe Fests, about what 2019 holds, and what he hopes the future of Vibe Riot will be. We’ve got your musical options set this coming week 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.
