  1. Episode 22 - Michelle Alany — Chasing Sound

    Michelle Alany is a violinist and interpreter of world music. We have played together off and on over the years and it has been a pleasure to watch her play the music of Eastern Europe, and Jewish music. She always has a fascinating new tune whenever I see her, which is all too infrequently. Michelle plays three songs and tells us about recording her upcoming album and trip to Spain with her band Nefesh.

  2. San Francisco’s Rob Reich on Revamping the Accordion’s Image: Forum | KQED Public Media for Northern CA

    TV host Lawrence Welk helped popularize accordion music in the 1950s, often with polka dancers hopping behind him while he played. But local musician Rob Reich says the accordion is more than just a ‘cheesy instrument’ limited to polka, but one with a versatile range that stretches from Klezmer music to jazz and rock ‘n’ roll. He joins us in-studio to perform songs from his new album, ‘Shadowbox,’ and talks about how he’s trying to update the accordion’s image.
