HAVANA FAIRFAX CONNECTION

HAVANA FAIRFAX CONNECTION presents BLUEGRASS BAND BEG STEAL or BORROW

One of the pleasures of hosting music program is the ability to meet the players with whom one feels a musical connection. BEG STEAL or BORROW is an example of this connection.

I’ve not changed my love of jazz, but just took the opportunity to bring my TV show into a new direction: BLUEGRASS SOUNDS in America !

For me, hosting a radio and a TV show in Vermont, has been an endless journey, and every once in a while, it’s good to take a side detour, as you never know where it might lead you.
 The concept of BLUEGRASS, as a process, means a collective creation rather than a set of specific rhythms or riffs from the soloists. It is a genre of American roots music that developed in the 1940s in the Appalachian region.

The genre derives its name from the band BILL MONROE and the BLUE GRASS BOYS, and it was further developed by musicians who played with MONROE.

This encounter with BEG STEAL or BORROW, will keep viewers, music programmers and impresarios, alert, as BLUEGRASS keeps gaining track in the 21st century.

Musicians like Fran Forim (bass), Geoff Goodhue (mandolin), Jeremy Sicely (guitar), Luke Auriemmo (banjo), and Roland Clark (fiddle and violin)  are a major reason why.

Their journey began 7 years ago, and their main goal was resurrecting the music of OLD & in The Way, a band that included Grateful Dead front man Jerry Garcia on banjo and vocals, Peter Rowan on lead vocals, Vassar Clements (fiddle), John Kahn (bass) and David Grissman (mandolin and vocals).

BEG STEAL or BORROW are grateful for the places their mission has taken them, and to the people they have met along the way.
Inspired by their travels and time together, they began to broaden their own musical branch, borrowing from the ROOTS, and by stealing a few licks, that finally came to populate their debut album “OLD MOUNTAIN TIME” with 10 compositions of its own members.

In these 7 years, they have won three prestigious Bluegrass Competitions in Maine, Connecticut and New York. All residing through Northern Vermont and New Hampshire, have successfully toured from Maine to the Island of Bermudas.  HOW  I FOUND BEG STEAL or BORROW’s ALBUM It was in the Artists’ Mediums Art Shop in Cambridge, Vermont, talking to owner and curator CHELSEA, a very nice lady, with whom I had exchanged some HAVANA FAIRFAX CONNECTION episodes to be promoted with her customers.artshopAM.com 

Some of her customers and artists  were delighted when they watched RUY LOPEZ-NUSSA  y LA ACADEMIA on Chelsea’s computer, and that was the path for the beginning of this new episode.OLD MOUNTAIN TIME was on a shelf “For Sale”, and CHELSEA, inspired by the episodes she saw,  gifted it to me, so I could connect with their bandleader, and so I did. 

My first real experiences with BLUE GRASS sounds began at WRUV 90.1 FM Burlington, the University of Vermont Campus Radio, in 2007, and also in some Concerts for students with bands coming from Massachusetts and Canada, especially singer and songwriter Gordon Lightfoot, whose show I attended at the Flynn Theater.Later on,  in the Valley Stage Festivals, hosted by musician and impresario DON SHELDON in the backyard of his home in Huntington, Vt. I discovered Collin McCaffrey with his impressive voice, leading his Cold Stone Roosters.  

Coming from  Milton and Starksboro,  banjoist Rick Ceballos and multi-instrumentalist Lausanne Allen,  graciously came to my radio show THE CUBAN BRIDGE at St. Michael’s College and then to my former show on TV in Richmond’s MMCTV. I had met Rick Ceballos at VCAM, responding to an invitation of media personality and musician Rik Palieri.  

Then, at the Vermont International Festival,  I discovered ROWAN.

Always curious about the Sounds of Music, I once discovered BLUEGRASS UNDERGROUND on PBS, a program taped deep within the subterranean amphitheater of The Caverns in Tennessee’s majestic Cumberland Mountains, 333 feet below, South of Nashville, TN.

This “musical adventure” series featured both long-established and emerging artists within a broad spectrum of genres to include roots-rock, jamband, r&b, soul, folk and Americana.

After this new episode with BEG STEAL or BORROW, I have discovered a lot more about each one of their members. For instance, fiddler and violinist ROLAND CLARK has played Duets with jazz guitar master and composer,  BILL FRISSELL, but that will be a new story for a next meeting.

I hope the crowds go wild and fall in love with this new episode @ LCATV,  it can help bring BLUEGRASS’ spirit to life even more, especially for those who would have found it unreachable before.

EL DOMINGO 6 de OCTUBRE, celebramos por 4ta semana consecutiva  el MES DE LA HISPANIDAD en los EU de America,  y en nuestro programa destacamos el INTERCAMBIO MUTUO y  la mezcla de  culturas que habitan la Union Americana.

WE were also thinking AUTUMN, the season where leaf turns into a flower.

This time, we celebrated the NATIONAL HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH in the US, with a slightly different flavor. We brought certain projects that will make you contemplate not just the music, but the world in which we live.

Our audience first and now you, will enjoy some of the BEST JAZZ ALBUMS of the New Millenium.

Two are really new,  WIND OFF HUDSON by pianist BILL O’CONNELL AFRO CARIBBEAN ENSEMBLE featuring NY Jazz Masters and educators from the Rutgers University.

German-American violinist Gregor Huebner with his “EL VIOLIN LATINO” Vol III  labelled as LOS SONADORES (THE DREAMERS).Its forward-thinking message and mission on IMMIGRATION reflects an anti-deportation statement.

And I deeply approve this message. I could feel a similar sensation in Bill O’Connell’s original  “I don’t have the answer”.

BILL, GREGOR, Andrea Brachfeld  and I created 2 Radiophonic Suites, – one dedicated to DUKE ELLINGTON and The Ellingtonians, another to violinist ENRIQUE JORRIN the creator of EL CHACHACHA.

MORE WOMEN IN JAZZ : YES !
Diane Marino, Nnenna Freelon, Andrea Brachfeld, Karen Joseph, Dianne Reeves, Sharenee Wade, Susie Hansen, Natalie Cole, ….  HOPE you all like to read this and tune in next SUNDAY OCTOBER 20,  from 12 to 3 pm, sometimes until 5 pm, while we contribute to stretch the boundaries of America’s Art Form : JAZZ.
