WLOY Coffee House Presents: Singer Song-writer Workshop with Claire Anthony

November 20th, 2013 by Joe Lomuti

Claire+Anthony+IMG_6259Last week we were graced with the enchanting sounds of Caleb Stine, but WLOY isn’t going to stop there! This Thursday, WLOY Coffee House Series hosts Claire Anthony, a young Baltimore singer song-writer. Claire’s soothing sound perfectly captures the ambiance of a cozy coffee house amidst a chilly November evening. However, although Claire will be performing her songs she also encourages all to share their own material. This is both a performance for the music lover, and workshop for those novice artists. It is a great opportunity to get feedback and improve your own material. So bring your guitar, or your rhymes, or maybe only your ears. Either way, the event begins Thursday evening, 9pm, in the third floor reading room. In the mean time, check out some of Claire’s music.

the 5th lYou may be asking yourself, who is The 5th L? Well, they are a popular, local group that performs spoken word. Your next question might be, what is spoken word? Kat and I will leave that one to the experts. The 5th L came into the station a few weeks ago and gave us the full experience of what it means to be spoken word artists, how art and creativity can help kids growing up in the inner city, and even a performance. The group is comprised of the ever talented David “Native Son” Ross and Femi “The DriFish” Lawal (Pictured above, along with their children, Kat and Rae). The two hilarious and inspiring artists took us into their world and gave us a tour of their lifestyle, writing process and inspirations. Take a listen to the whole interview and get inside the heads of two insane, powerful artists, as well as enjoying an exclusive performance.

Here is the full interview from Kat and Rae’s time with the dynamic duo!

Tourism Tuesday: Passages through the Fire: Jews and the Civil War

November 19th, 2013 by Samantha Chemali

Passages-500x450What: Passages through Fire: Jews and the Civil War

When: Now until February 18th, 2014 

Where: The Jewish Museum of Maryland

Come explore a Civil War you have never experienced before! It tells the story of events of national importance, through the lens of one small group in the American populous. It looks at the ways in which the Civil War was a crucible for American Jewish identity, and how it laid the groundwork for their integration and Americanization on a large scale. It focuses not only on the battlefield, but on the difficult choices made by non-combatants throughout the struggle. The exhibition also looks at the role the conflict played in establishing a framework for the full participation of Jews in American life – militarily, politically, economically and socially – and how it set the stage for massive Jewish immigration decades later.
