A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH MAGGIE SANSONE AND FRIENDS Hammered dulcimer player, Maggie Sansone, lives in Maryland,
but her heart resides in Ireland and the Europe of medieval times.
She brings those themes into a chamber setting on albums like
her recent MYSTIC DANCE (Maggie's Music). Maggie brings in a chamber
trio of cello and Celtic harp to join her in a performance that
casts our ears back to another time.
LANTERNA: AMBIENT AMERICANA Lanterna is Henry Frayne, a guitarist from Champaign, Illinois
who creates an evocative, haunting sound based in the twang of
countryfied guitar fed through delays and reverb. His album, HIGHWAYS
(Bad Man) was Echoes' CD of the Month for March. Henry Frayne
enters the Echoes Living Room, where he reveals roots that go
back to Revox tape machines and gothic rock.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH DRALA Drala is the New York City based world music ensemble headed
up by guitarist David Nichtern and bansuri flute player Steve
Gorn. They recently released their second album, Midnight Flower
(Dharma Moon). We visit Drala in their Manhattan studio where
they unfold the sinuous melodies and sensual eastern grooves,
