Al Holbrook is a master of many musical styles. Now he's trying his hand at musical theater in his second year performing in Nativity: the Pop Opera. In this interview Holbrook speaks with Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt about his experiences in the production and his plans for the new year.
There will be two local performances of Nativity on Saturday, December 17th at Beavercreek Church of the Nazarene.
The New Old-Fashioned blend Alt-rock, Americana and folk sensibilities into their sound as they prepare to play their debut show this Saturday night, December 3rd, at the XACT/KHN Theater in their hometown of Xenia. Here two members of the four piece band, David Payne and Kent Montgomery perform an acoustic set on Kaleidoscope and chat with host Juliet Fromholt about the development of the band and their plans for 2012.
Ben Clonch (Guitar, Vocals), Robbie Marion (Fiddle, Vocals), Jon Bauman (Standup Bass, Vocals) and Brendan Moore (Mando, Vocals) share a love for the music of Jerry Garcia. In Yellow Springs-based Blue Moon Soup, they channel bluegrass, folk and psychedelia into a signature sound that they've been honing since 2010. Here they visit the WYSO studios for a live set and to share tracks from their upcoming album, Lonely Mountain.
Blue Moon Soup will release Lonely Mountain on December 24th at Canal Street Tavern. They'll also perform on December 2nd at Blind Bob's on 5th Street.
Shakin' Dave's tribute to his friend and former bandmate, the late Denny Johnson.
He was a blessed and enlightened individual. He maintained the quintessential Bass/role playing persona There was nothing rote about DJ. He must have been born with a comprehensive insight into the human condition and its obvious contradictions. His maturity, at least from a philosophical musical standpoint was intimidating to this wannabe guitarist/visual artist.
Hailing from Covington, KY, Frontier Folk Nebraska has found a musical home in Dayton, OH. They'll celebrate the release of their new self-titled album in Dayton at South Park Tavern on Saturday, November 19 with the Turkish Delights and King Elk. Michael Hensley and Travis Talbert from the band visited the WYSO studios to perform an acoustic set as well as share tracks from the new album and chat with Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt.
