Joan Osborne, Aoife O'Donovan, and Matt Haimovitz on Triad Arts Weekend
When it comes to music, the late great Duke Ellington may have said it best: “There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind”. Today on Triad Arts Weekend, you don’t have to worry about the latter because we’ve got blues, to ballads, Bach and beyond! It’s all part of 17 Days Festival with music, art, theatre and more coming to Greensboro September 20th through October 6th. 17 Days Festival is happening courtesy of Arts Greensboro and this year they’re bringing in more than 130 arts events including a concert by multi-platinum selling recording artist Joan Osborne. Joane Osborne is here today on TAW, as is singer/songwriter extraordinaire Aoife O’Donovan. Fresh of the road with cellist Yo-Yo Ma, Aoife’s new CD Fossils was picked as one of Rolling Stone magazine’s "must-hear albums of the summer". And speaking of cellists, how about world renowned, multiple Grammy winner Matt Haimovitz? He’s got an amazing cello tribute to Jimmy Hendrix.
