The Irish-American band Solas stopped by the KLCC studios for an interview/performance with KLCC's Eric Alan. They are touring the Pacific Northwest in support of their latest project, Shamrock City. Solas plays the Shedd Institute in Eugene tonight (3/27), and in Sisters, Or. on Saturday night (3/29).

The John G. Shedd Institute for the Arts hosts Camelot and Christmas at the Shedd, as well as continuing an active role in concert presentation and music education. Jim and Ginevra Ralph look ahead with Eric Alan to the holiday shows and the year ahead at the Shedd.

The Miles Davis band of 1961 was melodic, subtle and built on the grooves of one of the best rhythm sections in jazz. In April of that year, they played and recorded two classic concerts at the legendary Blackhawk jazz club in San Francisco, which were eventually released in full as a four-CD set. The Carl Woideck Jazz Heritage Project will bring the spirit and music of those nights to the stage of the Jaqua Concert Hall in Eugene on Thursday, November 21st.

While in Eugene for a performance at the John G. Shedd Institute for the Arts, Rufus Wainwright joined Eric Alan in the KLCC studios for music from his new CD Out of the Game, as well as for conversation about the songs, how opera saved him, and the necessity of taking time to stare at Oregon trees. We present two versions here: an edited interview interspersed with music from Out of the Game, and an extended interview-only version, in which Rufus discusses his tributes to Judy Garland and Kate McGarrigle, and life in his complex musical family.
