Folksinger and social historian Joe Glazer has been collecting, composing,
recording and singing songs of workers, protest, politics and social
commentary for more than 50 years. His voice and guitar have been heard
in almost every state and in 60 foreign
countries where he interpreted American life in song and story
for the United States Information Agency. With more than 30 albums,
CDs and cassettes to his credit, Joe's latest recording, "The Music
of American Politics", highlights American
political history as told through its campaign songs.
Join us as Mary Cliff, host of the WETA radio show,
"Traditions", guides us through a retrospective of his music,
while coaxing Joe to tell us the stories behind his fascinating life.
Mary Cliff grew up in Arlington, and has been active in the Washington-area
music community since high school and college in DC. In 1972 she was
hired to host Classical Weekend at WETA, where she's been ever since.
Traditions, her four hour Saturday night folk music program, is known
for its breadth: a mix of traditional, revival, singer-songwriter, ethnic,
world and kitchen music, with a strong emphasis on artists and performances
in the greater Washington area. Outside her work at WETA, Mary Cliff
is seen as festival MC, chamber music recording engineer, long-time volunteer and cheerleader
for this area's music scene and its artists, especially those of the
Advance Ticketing for this Concert Has Closed.
Tickets will be on sale at the door.
