The Boston Herald called Solas the "The Best Irish traditional band in the world." But they aren't so traditional now as they infuse their music with contemporary rhtyhms and songs by such anceint bards as Bob Dylan and Tom Waits. Solas comes to the Echoes Living Room to play their new music live, exploring instrumental Irish aires, tales of Black Annis and a song by The Youngbloods. Headed up by Seamus Egan playing electric guitar, Solas weaves their Irish fiddle, button accordion and acoustic guitar with the voice of Irish champion singer, Diedre Scanlan in a magical performance.

Bobby McFerrin is a chameleon vocalist. His career began by imitating acoustic instruments, but over the years he's evolved a sound more like a global language, an esperanto of the soul. He's played with artists like Chick Corea and Yo-Yo Ma and conducts classical orchestras around the world. On his latest album, Beyond Words, McFerrin creates a series of vocal vignettes, over-dubbing his voice, playing synthesizer and featuring guest appearances by Corea, Gil Goldstein and Richard Bona. Now living in Philadelphia, Bobby McFerrin speaks in words about his latest album, BEYOND WORDS (Blue Note).

Thursday 05/02/02
Will Ackerman built his career as a solo acoustic guitarist, founding Windham Hill Records 25 years ago and launching the acoustic guitar renaissance of the 1980s and 90s. On his new album, HEARING VOICES (Windham Hill), he uses his plaintive guitar melodies to underpin exotic and ethereal voices from singers including Happy Rhodes, Heather Rankin, and Samite. Singing in Native tongues, imaginary dialects and occasionally English, HEARING VOICES has a hymn-like quality. Will Ackerman reveals the voices in his head.

Friday 05/03/02
Scott August talks about sending Native American flutes into virtual space on this edition of Echoes. Scott August isn't a Native American, but he plays their flutes on a new album called DISTANT SPIRITS (Cedar Mesa Music). Scott spends most of his time scoring soundtracks for TV commercials, but in his Los Angeles bedroom studio, August takes his collection of Native flutes and deploys them over digital atmospheres of the desert southwest with recordings from Canyon de Chelly and environments of the imagination. Scott takes us into a music that begins in a closet and ends in a canyon.
