Movin' On on 04/01/11
Howard Wade plays live, Friday April 1st on KBOO's Movin' On, Friday April 1, noon to 1:30. Laurie Sonnenfeld hosts.
Howard Wade, a guitarist of nearly half a century, shares his traditional fingerstyle blues, folk and ragtime. His influences include Rev. Gary Davis, Misssissippi John Hurt and Jorma Kaukonen. "The music we make tells the story of America. It's not the story we were told in school. ... It carries the hope, despair, love, hate, triumphs and tragedies of us all. It's our job as musicians to honor the story and carry it forward." --from www.HowardWade.com.
