HPR Music Conversations

Singer-songwriter Karla Bonoff contributed to the Southern California Rock sound of the 1970s, along with Linda Ronstadt, The Eagles and Jackson Browne.  Although she's visited the islands many times, Bonoff will be performing here for the first time on July 22 and 23 (Sunday and Monday night) at Blue Note Hawai'i.

Today was such a lovely day... that it inspired me to put together a playlist of beautiful songs to fill the night air for tonight's show.  Expect some folk, downtempo, Spanish ballads, and more.

  On this final day of playing new arrivals (for now), I've decided to focus on the Romantic period. Composers for the day include Robert Schumann, Anatoly Lyadov, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Felix Mendelssohn, Gustav Holst, Franz Schubert, and Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

'Mālama ʻĀina' celebrates the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service and takes the audience to places in Hawaiʻi that Jeff visited with his dad and brother as a young child. He stopped by 'Kanikapila Sunday' recently to discuss what inspired him to write a concerto for slack key and orchestra, as well as his upcoming performance with the Hawaiʻi Symphony on Sunday, December 10.
