Tales from the far Side 16.02.23 The Harp in Jazz

On this edition I explore the sound and the contributions of the Harp in Jazz featuring the pioneering forces of Dorothy Ashby and Alice Coltrane as well as a new generation of players and innovators like Brandee Younger, Deborah Henson-Conant and Alina Bzhezhinska. And there is a touch of otherworldly World Music with Edmar Castaneda' Colombian Harp

TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE is live on air on CRC102.9fm and on www.crcfm.ie every Thursday 8-9 pm with a repeat on Saturday 9-10 pm. And there is a podcast of the show available on the web site all through the week. The show has established itself over the years with a small but devoted listenership (even beyond Jazz-fans) and since the introduction on internet the listenership extended nationally and internationally.
