In the first hour we’ll have Silver City’s Ana Egge – now residing in Brooklyn – in the studio, playing live and talking about her life and current album produced by Steve Earle. Can’t wait to ask her about her sessions in Levon Helms’ studio in Woodstock, New York! We might also learn about her growing up with three sisters and parents who “dropped out” and then started “Down to Earth School” here in Silver. Ana has a huge, loyal following, so if you haven’t heard her yet, you must tune in. And tell your friends!
“Ana is a somewhat best-kept secret of the music scene.” —Maïa Davies of Ladies of the Canyon
In our second hour, we’ll visit with the Silver City String Beans – Skippy Sanders (mandolin, vocals), Martha Egnal (guitar, vocals), and Doug Smith (bass, vocals). (Thomas Wentz, fiddle and vocals, is unfortunately out of town.)
Silver City is fortunate to have musicians like this, who also give so much else to the community in the way of healthy food and healthy living in particular – though most people know them best for their toe-tapping, foot-stomping good time. I’m honored to have them on the show.
So pull up your radio, turn it up, and get ready to stomp around in your kitchen or wherever you are! Push back the tables!
KURU FM 89.1 from 6-8 this Thursday, January 23 – and every Thursday. If you can’t tune in then, remember to check the archives for the show at GMCR.org.
Love and Peace,
