Kenny Ferrier Interview

January 17th, 2014 by Rachel

Philadelphia based singer/songwriter Kenny Ferrier came down to Baltimore back in October, 2013 for an interview, on air performance and Coffee House performance for WLOY and Loyola. During his Coffee House he brought along his looper and took too Loyola students put on stage with him to help him harmonize. The crowd was very engaged and he had the chance to play quite a few originals as well as some classic covers. When Kat and I interviewed him we had the opportunity to ask him pressing, intriguing questions, including how he approaches his writing process, who his favorite Power Ranger is and who influences him. He’s is a very talented musician and songwriter and we are thankful to have had him share some of his music with us. Listen in to the full interview and enjoy some of his original songs.

War Horse Tickets

January 14th, 2014 by The Professor

war horse
Once again, WLOY wants to send you to opening night at the Hippodrome! This time to see the remarkable theatrical version of War Horse on February 4th. Win tickets at our Thursday Coffeehouse events and during our Friday Live at Boulder shows.

A remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship. England, 1914.

As World War One begins, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.

This powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness that is currently playing to packed houses in London and New York. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, that bring to life breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride.

The performances are daily from 2/4-2/9, with 8:00pm shows during the week and 2 shows on Saturday (2 & 8pm) and Sunday (1:00 & 6:30pm). More details and tickets can be found here.
