In Your Ear Episode 60: The Novel Ideas
The novel idea around which this band of good friends is built just might be the realization they had back in 2012 that the rich and distinctive wall of sound resulting from their four part harmony might be something very special. They began to take great care in working out the vocal arrangements to showcase the natural blend of their voices to full effect…something it won’t take long for you to hear in our opening set. We’ll give a proper introduction to the band and explain what brought them together a little later in the program…but for now, hearing is believing as we welcome all the way from Massachusetts Sarah, Danny, James and Daniel…the Novel Ideas recorded live on April 5, 2018.
In Your Ear offers a chance to discover new artists and appreciate the “in the moment” creativity and inspiration that only live music can provide. Studio A is a “great room,” a haven for artists with intimate, friendly and informed audiences and peerless audio fidelity, thanks to engineers Carlos Chafin, Andrea Stefl and Paul Bruski. JAMinc president Tim Timberlake produces the programs covering a wide range of genres including bluegrass, jazz, blues, old time, Celtic, gospel and singer-songwriters of many styles. Artists range from superior local and regional talents, to premier acts from all over the country. Concerts are held monthly except during the summer and begin with a delicious pot luck buffet in the lobby. Check our website for information and reservations: jaminc.org/events.
