Richard A. Bradley: COMMON SPIDERS OF NORTH AMERICA

Date: 
Wednesday, February 27, 2013 - 4:00pm
Program: 

Spiders get such a bad rap. That’s too bad because these unique arachnids are fascinating creatures that have unique mating behaviors, exhibit maternal care of their young and weave complex and beautiful webs. Some even manage to fly through the air! Tune in tonight and hear a conversation with RICHARD A. BRADLEY, Associate Professor in the Department of Evolution, Ecology and Oganismal Biology at The Ohio State University. He discusses his new state of the art and much needed guide COMMON SPIDERS OF NORTH AMERICA. 

Karen Grenier

With the release of her latest CD "Crazy Love", Karen Grenier continues to make her mark as a both a gifted songwriter and crafty lyricist. Drawing in both new and faithful fans, Karen's songs resonate in the heart and leave listeners anticipating the next song and humming her catchy melodies.

A polished performer, Karen's smooth, penetrating voice, rhythmic acoustic style and positive emotional energy make for an excellent concert experience. Karen's songs possess a distinctly American Folk-Rock sound leaning at times towards bluegrass.

Wide Open Spaces

Wide Open Spaces lives up to their name by playing "bluegrass without borders."  Combining the traditional sounds of fiddle,  banjo, mandolin, guitar and bass with modern song-writing, jazzy - rock edged arrangements and uber-tight 3 part harmonies, they take audiences on a musical joy ride that have some people saying "I can't believe that's bluegrass!"  Anything can happen - and usually does.

Jazz First with Vocalist Pamela Smith

Jazz First believes in the Great American Songbook, and feels those tunes should be preserved. Thus, the repertoire consists of jazz versions of this very listenable music by the masters (Porter, Gershwin, Rodgers, Strayhorn, etc.) written primarily in the first half of the twentieth century, with lyrical improvisations inserted for variety. At its core is a trio with Joe Whalen on piano, Chris Guild on bass, and Jack Morash on drums.
