In Your Ear Episode 64: Aaron Burdett
Aaron Burdett’s way with words is as prolific and genuine as the man himself. He grew up the oldest of three boys in the small town of Saluda, NC, where the Blue Ridge meets the Great Smokies. At age 10 he was introduced to the music of Cat Stevens, the first of many musical influences that include the Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin, Doc Watson, Tony Rice, Norman Blake, and David Grier. During his teens, Aaron found his voice in a choral setting and performed in musical theater. In 1992 he went to the renowned Governor’s School of North Carolina for choral music.
In Your Ear Episode 63: Rex Richardson Quintet
Born in California to a military family, Rex Richardson was instilled early with the lust for travel…to follow wherever the music might take him. And it’s taken him literally all over the world. His versatility and his virtuosity have made him a highly sought-after soloist and collaborator in both jazz and classical circles.
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.
