  This week it’s an eclectic musical mix with poetry slam, Kairoff at the Keyboard, plus a nod to some of the unsung heroes behind the music making as well. We begin with “The Luthier’s Craft: Instrument Making Traditions of the Blue Ridge” and Bethany Chafin’s conversation with Executive Director of the Mount Airy Museum of Regional History, Matt Edwards. Then it’s time for spoken word with some of the Triad’s most talented young poets.

Triad Arts Weekend: July 26, 2013

On the first half of today's show, our Associate Producer Bethany Chafin talks it up with author Ken Ilgunas about his new book Walden on Wheels: On the Open Road from Debt to Freedom. Then we head to the open road on two wheels and a sneak peak at The Bicycle: Art Meets Form. It’s the perfect blending of world-renowned custom frame builders, bike derived art, and it’s the first time ever that a USA Cycling National Championship has ever come to North Carolina. Peter Kairoff is back at the keyboard with dynamics in classical music, and organist Ray Ebert is here to share the Sounds of the Summer. Scroll down to hear individual segments.

Triad Arts Weekend: July 19, 2013

First, we go proto-punk. Before The Sex Pistols, or The Ramones, there was A Band Called Death. That’s the name of a new music documentary coming to the Triad this weekend. Our Technical Producer Eddie Garcia explores the musical and personal relationships of the Hackney Brothers with Charlotte film maker Jeff Howlett. Next Peter Kairoff is back at the keyboard with Frederick Chopin's Romantic piano music. Hear how it evokes early Italian opera, the expressive nature of the serenade, and so much more. And we wrap up today’s program at… Elsewhere. That’s Greensboro’s living museum, and it’s the site of an amazing musical experiment. What would happen if you composed a piece of music using nothing but found objects, polled your audience on how your piece should be performed, and then invited the room full of non-musicians to perform your work? Southern Constellations fellow Andrew Raffo Dewar will answer that question and everything else you ever wanted to know about Material Music.
