Andrea DeMarcus and Dave Kirslis are the talented team behind Georgia’s Cicada Rhythm. The skilled guitar and bass duo produce a modernized folk sound glistening with sweet strings and haunting vocal harmonies. They stopped by The Afternoon Sound Alternative to play a few songs with friend Matt Stoessel on steel guitar. Hear their set and conversation with Michael Buck. (From November 4, 2015)
Local Gold: We had a chance to visit with Elephant Revival just before their two night stand at the Boulder Theater as part of their "Birds of a Feather Autumnal Ball" with Paper Bird and Horse Feathers. The band played a few tunes and spoke about the development of new material as well as the challenges of performing in a fuselage.
We were lucky enough to have a visit from Dave Rawlings Machine in our studios. They were in between a two night run at the Boulder Theater and had enough time in their schedule for a live studio session. "The Machine" was breaking in a new line up featuring Dave Rawlings, Gillian Welch, Willie Watson, Paul Kowert, and John Paul Jones. They spoke about their harmonies, the forgotten lyrics of This Land Is Your Land, and the challenges of getting their schedules to align.
Local Gold: Local Gold features some of the amazing talent right here in Colorado. Over the years we've had the good fortune to have regular visits from Esmé Patterson. Whether she is joined with her friends in Paper Bird or sharing material from her solo projects, it is always a treat to have her on our airwaves. Her latest visit features material from her second solo album Woman to Woman.
