SOUL SHERPA in the House!

Band performs this Saturday, Feb 25th at the Depot Brewery 8:30pm $5 cover.

Soul Sherpa, a 9-piece original horn band, was pieced together from the remains of members of a jazz combo from Kirkwood Community College.

After playing music with each other daily, there was such an indescribable connection that we just couldn't leave behind. Having similar inspirations and aspirations, Soul Sherpa emerged.

According to Ian Draves, the band's bassist, "We strive to bring the groove from our hearts to the audience, playing a mixture of R&B, Funk, Pop, Jazz, andSoul music."

Big weekend for movies with the Oscars Sunday night. With six Oscar nominations Manchester By The Sea posterManchester By The Sea is one of three films considered award favorites, along with Moonlight and La La Land.  My son Shane and I saw Manchester By The Sea on DVD. I've highly anticiapted this film since, along with Shane, I resonate with writer-director Kenneth Lonergan's potent emotions about loss of family. Shane and I both loved it, and he agreed to record Filmosophers with us Thursday (can't do live during school :) Among other things he said Manchester By The Sea comes closest to his own experience.

We'll also give our Oscar thoughts and more, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays at 12:30 PM, again Sunday morning 11:30.

Lee - If you could take one guy to an island with you and you knew you'd be safe cause he is the best man, he's going to keep you happy, if it was between me and your father, who would you take?

Patrick - My daddy! ; Manchester By The Sea

Schoolhouse: Lessons on Love and Landscape

 

During Iowa woods walks, urbanite MARC NIESON learned to connect with nature, his most creative self, and other people. Marc's memoir, SCHOOLHOUSE: LESSONS ON LOVE AND LANDSCAPE, describes the pivotal year he spent living in an old one-room schoolhouse while attending The Iowa Writers' Workshop.

Distraught over a failed 10-year relationship, Marc came to Iowa seeking apartness. Instead he found a tribe of supportive fellow writers, a landscape that seduced him, and the realization that writing and life are all about connecting. Today Marc serves on Chatham University's faculty and is fiction editor of The Fourth River. To hear Marc's description of his evolving creative process, tune in this week to The Studio with Cheryl and Marc Nieson.
