We’d like to invite you all to the White Horse club in Black Mountain, NC,
or if you’re not necessarily in the immediate vicinity, to join in the
festivities online, tonight at 7pm EST for the new web show Lingua Musica. As
conceived and hosted by our good buddy Joe Kendrick (one of the DJs at WNCW-FM
and also host of that station’s “What It Is” show), Lingua Musica is presented
as an evening of music and conversation.
Go to the official Lingua Musica website for details and
more, including a link to the first show from about a month or so ago. The show will be streamed live starting around 7:00.
The show is designed to showcase a rotating cast of musical artists, journalists and
industry professionals as panelists who talk about music news, history and
culture while inviting the audience to take part. Meanwhile, for the hour long
live webcast, in addition to a pair of in-depth conversations (“Music Business
101” and “Great Concerts”), music will be provided by the house band – tonight,
Asheville trio Grammer School.
Musica’s live stream on the website will also take viewer comments on
twitter with the hashtag #linguamusica which will be seen by the round table of
panelists who may then respond to the audience, creating a continuous loop of
conversation. We’ll have a literal and virtual room full of musical
professionals and fans who will be talking about their their passion and
business: the news, history and culture of music.
panelists tonight: moderator Kendrick, yours truly, Stephanie Morgan (vocalist
for Asheville’s acclaimed indie rockers stephaniesid) and internationally-acclaimed percussionist River
