Triad Arts Weekend: June 6, 2014

Today on the show we’ll be genre jumping like never before from “new Americana” to Mozart’s Magic Flute, and from new Dimensions in art, to low brow/high concept cinema. Outspoken Troma Entertainment co-founder Lloyd Kaufman says “Give art back to the people”, and Triad Arts Weekend’s Eddie Garcia says “You’re pushin’ on an open door”. Then Bethany Chafin sits in with Nora Jane Struthers. This weekend, she and The Party Line are headed Carolina. And David gets his first taste of what’s been called “rowdy Bluegrass” with Seven Handle Circus’s Colin Vinson. They’ll be at Twin City Ribfest this weekend. At American Singer’s Opera Project The Queen of the Night may scream “Abandoned may you be forever”, but hey, you’re never alone on TAW.

Triad Arts as Broadcast at 8:35am and 5:44pm

Nora Jane Struthers is a singer and songwriter based in Nashville, Tennessee. She released her first, self-titled album in 2010 to critical acclaim, and went on to play the Telluride Bluegrass Festival that summer where her group was named best band. In April 2013, Nora Jane Struthers and The Party Line independently released Carnival, an album of 14 original story-songs all written by Struthers.  The album was produced by Brent Truitt, who's worked with artists such as Dolly Parton, Alison Krauss, and the Dixie Chicks.  

Each song on Carnival tells the story of a woman, and together, they achieve a chronological narrative that flows lyrically from tales of youth to old age.   Nora Jane and The Party Line are currently on tour, and they'll be playing in Lexington, North Carolina this Friday, June 6th at High Rock Outfitters. The show begins at 9pm and tickets are $10.

Fierro Photo

The band Seven Handle Circus has been critically acclaimed as “rowdy bluegrass”, but you’re just as likely to hear them playing an Earth Wind & Fire classic, rapping with T-Pain & Yung Joc or performing live with Mumford & Sons. The six-piece Atlanta band comes to the Triad this Friday night for Twin City Ribfest in Winston-Salem. Seven Handle Circus lead banjo player Colin Vinson spoke with David Ford by phone from his home in Atlanta.
