Masters of Tradition

Martin Hayes and Masters of Tradition Tues Mar 5th

 

An all-star lineup of extraordinary Irish musicians are touring as the “Masters of Tradition” and will be in concert at the Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 at 7:30pm. This is a unique opportunity to hear Martin Hayes, All-Ireland fiddle champion six times over, Dennis Cahill, Martin’s guitar accompanist of choice who completely supports Martin’s dynamic playing, Iarla O Lionaird, vocalist who has received two Grammy nominations for his work with the Afro Celt Sound System group, and members of the Mairtin O’Connor Band  on accordion, fiddle, guitar and uilleann pipes. They’ll perform in a mix of duos, trios, and full group collaborations. The New Yorker claims this touring group is “not to be missed.” Sponsored by the Celtic Society of the Monterey Bay.

Calling All Cars…

Broadcasting music from the UC Santa Cruz campus started back in 1967. As you can see from the picture, we faced some pretty stiff competition back then. Technology has marched on in the last four decades but The Great 88 remains a resource for local talk and fine music. KZSC asks that if you have a push button set on your car radio for 88.1 FM, a bookmark for kzsc.org or if you’re exploring our programming for the first time that you consider making a donation to keep us going.

KZSC is sponsored by listeners; you can help by calling in now during our  ON-AIR FUNDRAISER at 831-459-4036 or by Giving Now. Buckle up and stay tuned for the fun we put into fundraising for The Great 88!
