Triad Arts Weekend: February 7, 2014

Today on the show we’ll go from girl gangs to Georgia O’Keefe, and legendary luthiers to Martin Luther King. First up NC A&T State University takes its audience on an up close, and in-your-face tour of the mean streets of America with its production of Breath, Boom by Kia Corthron. Then, he’s worked on guitars used by Neil, Eric, and Elvis (yes, THOSE Neil, Eric and Elvises): legendary Carolina luthier and picker Wayne Henderson is here to reveal the secrets of his success. Reynolda House reveals the magic behind American Moderns like Grandma Moses, and Norman Rockwell. And Stained Glass Playhouse celebrates National Black History Month with a powerful and personal look at the Civil Rights Movement through the eyes of award-winning playwright Gloria Bond Clunie. We’ll each follow our own inner “North Star”.
