Today on Home Grown, it’s barely managed chaos as David and Leslie talk to two sets of musical guests producing two different musical experiences. First, singer-songwriter Jim Bingler visits the show for the first time with his cousin and collaborator Tim Bingler. They both have worked on Tim’s latest CD Willow. The CD release concert is this coming week at The Front Porch Roots Music School. Next, we have two returning guests working together for the first time. Jen Hoyt Tidwell and Paige Naylor have collaborated with three other performers on Jen’s original show, The Near Misses: An Experimental Electro-pop Opera, which will be playing at The Southern Cafe and Music Hall and at Live Arts Theatre. The Near Misses looks at women’s stories of surviving near death experiences. We talk to Jen and Paige about the thought and the work behind the show and about what the final product looks like. Sometimes chaos is not just a theory, but we muddle through here 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.
