Episode: Mariah Parker Interview Indo Latin Jazz Live in Concert

 Mariah Parker has been playing music from the time she could reach the keys on the grand piano in her family home. While completing her degree in music at UC Santa Cruz, she worked with ethnomusicologist Fred Lieberman and drummer Mickey Hart on the “Planet Drum” project and became fascinated with the possibilities of bridging musical concepts from different traditions. She has performed her original compositions in festivals in the US and Europe. A gifted composer and band leader, she released her first solo recording of her compositions, “Sangria,” in February of 2009.  Join me as Mariah and I talk about her new release "Indo Latin Jazz Live in Concert", Featuring Paul McCandless and Mathew Montfort among many other talented musicians.

Show: Gallagher's Balagan

Kevin Gallagher's "Balagan"

Heavy on the 60's & 70's, new artists, Boogie Blues, Blues-Rock, Alt-country, Folk, Funk, Acid Jazz and world music and Latin Jazz.. Drop in every other  Monday of the month, 4-7 p.m. for musical meanderings with Kevin Gallagher. He'll drop the bucket down WPKN's musical well and see what he drags up.

"I know where things will start out, but I'm never quite sure where we'll end up. It's all about playing any kind of music that fires me up, with the occasional Interview thrown in".

Most Mondays when I am on I will feature a segment I call "Digging in the Dirt",  where I talk to a guest working in and around agriculture, farming, gardening  and food issues like organics, seeds, GMO and the Bionutrient movement.

You can also hear a brief round-up of Southern Connecticut cultural events at 4:55 pm every Monday with "FC Buzz on the radio", brought to you by the Fairfield County Cultural Alliance!

Kevin shares every other Monday 4-7 p.m. with Pete Stewart.
