Greg Brown: Review, Issue #7

Greg Brown’s roots were, in part, sprouted from an electric guitar-playin’ mama, and banjo-strumming grandpa and a dad who was a Holy Roller preacher in the gospel- and music-infused section of Iowa called Hacklebarney.

Ladysmith Black Mombazo, Concert Review For those of us fortunate enough to share Carnegie Hall’s performance of South Africa ’s Ladysmith Black Mombazo a few weeks ago, it was a lovely and heartfelt appearance by a warm and joyful group of amazing vocalists. Having been formed by Joseph Shabalala (then in his 20’s, in 1964), […]

Steel Pterodactyl at Casasanta, Issue #2

STEEL PTERODACTYL at CASASANTA By Susanna Robinson-Kenga Last night I attended the performance of long-missing-in-action band Steel Pterodactyl at my favorite venue, CasaSanta, the loft atop the Masonic Building on Court Street. It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since the early days of their then-raggedy inception, when they were known as Home Brew. […]

If you find any joy and value in it, please consider making a one time or recurring monthly donation of your choosing, between a cup of coffee at The Wild Bean and a good dinner at Food & Friends
