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

It’s a very different Home Grown this week.The morning after the neo-Nazi, new US fascist, jingo nationalist, post-Confederate, white supremacist riots yesterday, your hosts David Vaughn Straughn and Leslie M. Scott-Jones join with Jenna Hochman and Professor Lisa Woolfork to tell their stories of having been on the ground yesterday. It’s not a very artistic talk, but as maybe the first media show afterwards, we had to give voice to what went down. That’s this week’s Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

On today’s Home Grown David and Leslie make a new friend and welcome back a member of the Home Grown family. First, the director of Woody Guthrie’s American Song Bryan Garey (UVA Heritage Summer Theatre Festival) talks about this upcoming show that’s not quite a musical, not quite a play, not quite a concert, but is all about the wonderful and legendary folk pioneer Woody Guthrie and his music. Next, Andy Davis from Bent Theatre Improv triumphantly returns to the show. This time Bent is presenting an 18 hour improv marathon, which may be the closest thing to a Charlottesville comedy festival that the city has seen in awhile. (Then David, Leslie, and Andy fall into an unabashed lovefest.) It’s about one man who listened to the working and the workless and a theatre style all about listening 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 AM to 11 AM.
