Forecast Music, Helen Simoneau Danse, Authoring Action, and Johnny Cash on Triad Arts Weekend

Helen Simoneau Danse

Triad Arts Weekend: February 21, 2014

Wow, talk about your artistic journeys. Today on the show we’ll go from live cutting edge contemporary music in a small Cafe, to the music of Johnny Cash. Before we walk the line though, Dancer Helen Simoneau is asking her dancers to put it all on the line for “Paper Wings”. It’s local modern dance that the great Baryshnikov calls “cool moves”. Composer Eric Schwartz brings the hip, new music scene of Brooklyn to the Triad with Forecast Music’s Brooklyn Sounds: Copland Meets the Moderns. And they say actions speak louder than words. Authoring Action has its cake and eats it too engaging audiences, empowering youth, and bringing about change all through the power of the written and spoken word. Paisley IB Magney School tenth grader Nonnie Christine Egbuna fights the power with Bethany Chafin. And musician/songwriter Richard Boyd of the Bo-Stevens celebrates the birthday of the legendary "Man In Black" with ten outstanding local bands during the 11th annual Cash Bash. He chats with Eddie Garcia. Get ready to “Walk the Line”.
