Live on Kaleidoscope: Richard Ringer

Richard Ringer hails from Greenville, OH but spent time performing in New York's Antifolk scene which he says he found liberating.  Ringer's latest album, Creepster Freakster, was a departure from previous recordings written from the point of view of fictional characters.  A lifelong writer, Ringer has written an unpublished novella and is currently working on a new album called Afterlife Surprise, set to be released in 2012.

Live on Excursions: Sawgrass

 

Dayton-area bluegrass group Sawgrass stops by Excursions for a fun performance and interview in advance of their performance at GearFest 2011.

Sawgrass, which formed in 2005 as an outlet for Springfield singer/songwriter Ryan Judy, is a modern interpretation of the musical stylings of artists such as Hank Williams and Bill Monroe. The group plays high-energy bluegrass music, full of strong harmonies and rich instrumentation.

In this Excursions performance, the group tears through a four-song bluegrass set, which includes the uplifting “Workin’ on a Building.”
