Christian Keefer and Sharron Kraus “The Black Dove”

Austin Space   8/8/2006   A Library, CD

Christian Keefer and Sharron Kraus have brought together the synergy of their separate artistry in music and medieval love to weave a 15 track journey reminiscing wonderous love as viewed from the darker, and painful side of separation and loss. Allusions to medieval lore and other tales weave in and out, some for profound effect. The music, sometimes delicate, sometimes tentative, sometimes bold, always feeling. Imagine these modern day artists portraying a view of a group of minstrels telling musical stories amongst themselves. Listen closely, there is a lot of delicate happenings in the aural background behind the guitar, bass, and Sharron’s exquisite banjo artistry. – Space

Polly Moller “Diogenes”

Austin Space   8/8/2006   A Library, CD

Others describe Polly Moller as a “urban assault flutist”. Polly masterfully performs in the boundaries between art, music, poetry, and the human condition. Her 2003 CD “Diogenes” “was named after the legendary Greek Cynical philosopher who prowled the land day and night with a lit lantern, in search of an honest man.” Be prepared for punctuated poetry and percussion. Reminiscent of the beatnik generation combined with the current age, Polly generates a mental engagement that doesn’t go of you and awes you in her wielding her prose and the unimaginable sound of what a flute can do in a poet’s hands. Heading towards an “E ticket” for the spiritual path. – Space
