Roberta Schultz is a member of the local folk group, Raison D’Etre. She dropped by the studio to talk with Lee Hay about their upcoming concert at The Carnegie in Covington, Kentucky on Thursday, October 3rd at 7:30pm. The concert’s part of the Carnegie in Concert series and is entitled, “Swing Canaries, Harmony Sisters and Folk Divas.”
If things were simple, my review of Cardigan by the band Mardou would consist of two words: "Holy $#^+!" Because those are the first two words I said when I heard this EP.
Within 23 seconds of the track "Margaret," I was rapt, sold, converted and owned. The pop-punk pseudo-surf feel of this song struck a resonating chord deep in my heart. When I started doing local music reviews, this was the album I was hoping to find.
In preparation for this weekend's MidPoint Music Festival, I met up with John Crowell and Caitlin Behlefrom Each Note Secure to talk about what local bands are on their must-see lists and how to best prepare for the fest.
