As Heard on Morning Line: Sweet Honey in The Rock

Anchorage Concert Association

This Morning on KNBA, Danny Preston interviews Sweet Honey in the Rock live in the studio - playing the Atwood tonight at 7:30.

This morning on KNBA, the first in the series of radio stories aired - but attendees to the community event and panel discussion Friday evening got a sneak preview as well as to hear the producers' views and challenges on the production. 

Daysha Eaton and Brian Adams presented on stage at the Anchorage Museum, showing photographs and explaining the reporting process, as well as told an origin story of sorts, wherein Daysha and Brian covered the story of protestors at Standing Rock, and yet did not meet there.

Live In-Studio

Live music in Anchorage requires an audience that is engaged and performers who have the tools to keep 'em coming back! On this edition of the Alaska Music Spotlight we have two guests live in-studio, Emma Hill and Michael Howard. Emma is playing live for us on the show as well as promoting the new series, The Spenard Song Circle. Michael comes to share news for musicians about the Alaska Independent Musicians Initiative and its December 16, 2017 Alaska Music Summit.

Last April veteran Alaskan musician Evan Phillips brought his 20 years of songwriting experience to an empty old church in Spenard.  ‘Lonely Mountain‘ was recorded unplugged that spring day inside the Spenard Church of Love in front of an intimate crowd of 75 people. We caught up with Evan to talk about his CD release event for that same album.

As Heard on Morning Line: The Ballroom Thieves

Koahnic Broadcast Corporation via Facebook Live

Our guests today on Morning Line were a musical trio called The Ballroom Thieves.  

The group is playing at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts on Sept. 22nd, this coming Friday at 7:30 - but here's a twist - first, they are touring local schools, inspiring students and also picking up local High School symphonic talent.  That's right, some lucky band students will get a chance to play with a nationally touring music group.  

When you're out there playing gigs and helping the Alaska Music scene, you're gonna get your hands dirty. The Dirty Hands have supported musicians, venues, festivals and Alaskan audiences for many years. They're off to explore new landscapes and locations but will reunite in Alaska for more shows in the future. Born in Girdwood, the band is a multi­-genre, blues centric, quintet. The band members seek to broaden the dynamic and depth of their music, inspired from all corners of the United States, covering a breadth of influence steeped in blues, jazz, and rock. 

The Cheapest Key

After a busy summer, the festival season is winding down as we spotlight the Fish Creek Festival September 9, 2017 here in Anchorage featuring The Cheapest Key! The band has been together for about a year and have played only 'occasionally' on Anchorage stages.  We expect more attention will be coming their way after a studio recording is made which will no doubt get plenty of air-time on the radio. Thanks for the live music and we'll see you at the Fish Creek Festival!
