In Your Ear Episode 66: Eric Stanley & Friends
Now in his late twenties, Chesapeake native Eric Stanley began playing violin at age 12 in a very music-focused family. He, his sister and brother would sing along as their mom played piano. Taken as an elective in middle school, the violin soon developed into Eric’s passion, joining the Richmond Symphony Youth Orchestra while still in high school. At VCU, Eric began creating YouTube videos remixing popular songs, fusing improvisational violin with hip hop, pop, and classical.
In Your Ear Episode 65: Wayne Henderson and Helen White
This is a special edition of In Your Ear, paying tribute to the late Helen White, musician, educator and life partner to renowned Virginia luthier and guitarist Wayne Henderson. The two had met at a festival in the mid-sixties when he noticed her guitar had a loose bridge that needed repair…a chore he was more than willing and able to handle.
About In Your Ear
In Your Ear is a live performance radio series created completely in RVA. It features highlights of JAMinc's enduring house-style concert series held monthly in the acoustically perfect confines of In Your Ear Studio A in Shockoe Bottom. Former board member Robbin Thompson and his partner Carlos Chafin collaborated with JAMinc in 2004 to launch these musical close encounters and we're now well beyond the century mark in total concerts and now at 61 hour-long programs available here on VPM Music for live streaming . Our concert nights always include a sumptuous pot luck buffet pre-show, and a chance to experience a range of artists in the most intimate of settings, so visit jaminc.org to find out what's up next.
In Your Ear is produced and hosted by JAMinc president Tim Timberlake...earlier programs normally included more than one artist/group but in the past few years, we were leaving so much on the "cutting room floor," that most recent shows feature just one performer or group for the full hour. The genre range has broadened widely, from roots, folk, blues and bluegrass to piano jazz, bolero and even Turkish pop. JAMinc is grateful to VPM Music for affording us the opportunity to share this music with its listeners, either on air or online. We hope you'll join us either way...or maybe both! We would like to sincerely thank our current underwriters for In Your Ear: VPM (Virginia's home for Public Media), Digital Video Group, Threshold Counsel PC, Fralin Pickups, Virginia Humanities/Virginia Folklife Program and the Graduate Hotel Richmond.
