Crackin’ the Vault
An exploration of the Centrum archives
Crackin’ the Vault, a new radio show on KPTZ 91.9FM Port Townsend, features musical nuggets from the last five decades of Centrum programming, including Country Blues, Fiddle Tunes, Voice Works, Slide and Steel, and one-time shows from the 90s. More than 55 National Heritage Fellows have participated in Centrum programming, and we’ll be broadcasting some of their finest performances. Hosted by Peter McCracken
Episode 31: Honoring Pedro Dimas
Don Pedro Dimas
El Maestro, the dean of Purepecha fiddlers, passed last week, and we’ll spend some time listening to his music and telling some stories, and remembering him.
… and a conversation with Zaidee Stavely about his life and legacy.
For a look at Mirando al Lago (it’s worth it), Don Pedro’s orchestra, with dancers wearing regalia that he designed, dancing his choreography – tune in to the Quarantine Happy hour on Sunday, January 31, at 5:30pm PST. Click the link below.
