local musicians

Two acclaimed and sought-after touring and studio musicians, Bobby Fisher (guitar/songwriter) and Michael G. Ronstadt (cello/guitar/songwriter), have joined together to create a new and truly special CD entitled Ancient and Unending, and as they tell Lee Hay, it started as a musical idea that took creative scheduling and the help of some very talented friends to finally come to fruition.

Sitting at the top of Devou Park in Covington, the Behringer Crawford Museum chronicles the history and culture of Northern Kentucky. In addition to a variety of permanent and special exhibits, the Museum hosts a number of special events, none more popular than their summer music series. Laurie Risch, executive director of the museum, and Mark Schalchter, volunteer coordinator of Music@BCM, join Mark Perzel to share some of the upcoming music and displays visitors will be able to enjoy during the summer.

The School of Rock in Mason is founded on the principle that the best way to learn music is to play music.

The faculty of The School of Rock is associated with several notable Cincinnati bands such as The Rusty Griswolds, Wussy, Fairmount Girls and Afghan Whigs.  They take students of all ages from the lesson room to the stage by developing their confidence and musicianship with programs designed for all skill levels.

I met with Tim Garry, owner and General Manager and Chris Barlow, Bass Instructor and Show Director from The School of Rock.

Joani Lacy, well-known local musician, has recently completed the third book of her Hollister House Trilogy, three stories of a fantastic journey through the Deep South, featuring romance, mysticism and more. She joins Brian O’Donnell to discuss and read from the final installment, The Witch and the Banyan Tree. She’ll be doing a signing on Saturday, May 11 at the Roebling Point Bookstore in Covington.

Though they've only been playing together for a year or so, Tweens has exploded onto the local music scene and things are definitely going their way.  


Caitlin Behle and John Sebastian are passionate supporters of local music - and local beer.

They started Drunk Music Reviews in 2011 as an extension of Each Note Secure, the local music blog.

Local musician Kim Taylor is on quite a roll. Her new, self-produced CD, Love’s a Dog, has just been released and the movie she co-starred in, I Used to be Darker, just appeared at the Sundance Film Festival. Somehow, she found the time to join Brian O’Donnell in the studio to talk about this whirlwind and where 2013 might take her next.
