In Your Ear Episode 45: Alison Brown + Howard Levy
Our JAMinc/In Your Ear concerts are generally comprised of two sets lasting 45 minutes to an hour, meaning we just don’t have time to share everything with you during these 53-minute-long radio shows. So for this edition of our radio show, we go back and grab some previously unaired tracks from two renowned instrumentalists who normally play much larger venues: banjo innovator Alison Brown, and harmonica wizard Howard Levy. Alison played Studio A with her quartet in November of 2013, and Howard was with us a year earlier with dazzling guitarist Chris Siebold. An all-star double-header on JAMinc’s In Your Ear.
In Your Ear offers a chance to discover new artists and appreciate the “in the moment” creativity, inspiration and soul of live music. Studio A is a “great room,” a haven for artists with intimate, friendly and informed audiences and peerless audio fidelity. Host Tim Timberlake and In Your Ear studio president Carlos Chafin produce the programs, which feature three acts, reflecting the diversity and range of these special concerts. The eclectic selections cover many genres -- including bluegrass, jazz, blues, old time, Celtic, gospel and singer-songwriters of many styles. Artists range from superior local and regional talents, to premier acts from all over the country.
Production Funding of In Your Ear is made possible, in part, by... Digital Video Group, Infinity Financial Partners, Threshold Counsel, PC the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities and Will & Molly Perkinson. Artist accommodations in cooperation with the Hampton Inn West and the Hilton Downtown Richmond.
