Live In-Studio: The Moxie Strings at KNBA

Jan 19, 2018

Our Guests this morning on Our Community were the live band - The Moxie Strings, a band out of Michigan composed of classically trained musicians.  They decided they could do something besides chamber music, and the band was born! 

The Moxie Strings play tonight at 7:30 at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts, through the Anchorage Concert Association.

Violinist Diana  Ladio shared how excited she was to see KNBA – the first Native-owned radio station in an urban market, in part due to own Cherokee heritage. 

Cellist Alison Lynn’s passion for Celtic music is reflected in her style of play, and has been in productions with Gaelic Storm and other famed acts. 

World Music percussionist Fritz McGirr traveled widely to perfect his part – including studies in Ireland.  McGirr says they look forward to further travel, and are set to head to Alice’s Champagne Palace next, in Homer, to play on the 20th.
