Movie-Score Composer David Tippie Visits KDRT's Listening Lyrics 9/4/15 at 4:00PM

David Tippie is a 14-year-old musician from Davis, California. Don’t let his age fool you--he has something in his resume that most musicians can only dream of. Mr. Tippie wrote the music score for the movie The Unforgotten, produced by Andre Martinez. Mr. Tippie’s main instruments are guitar and piano, and most of what he plays is rock and metal. So let's hear some of the movie score and learn how a composer and movie director work together. Join us this Friday, 9/4/15, at 4:00PM. 

Ruby Mountain String Band to appear on Listening Lyrics 8/28/15 at 4:00PM

Ever heard of  "Old time Americana Fusion" want to know what it sounds like? Join us with the Ruby Mountain String Band. Once upon a time, in a town called Haiku (spelled backwards) four devotees of trad music bumped into each other in an organic food co-op; one was a cellist, one a fiddler, two played guitars, banjoes and sang. A banjo player and guitarist also favored song writing. All liked CapeBreton/scottish fiddle tunes. So, how many musicians walked into the co-op?.

Cliff Landis - Guitar, Vocals, Banjo and Fiddle, Julia Landis - Guitar, Vocals, Darin Smith - Cello, other things.

Today he talks about his latest CD Hand in Hand, playing with Keb' Mo', his signature song "Kind Woman," and one of his Christian songs, "Through It All." He also tells the story about the band he and Gram Parsons--another major musician from the 1960s--talked about forming, as well as why they decided it wouldn't work.
