Beggar and The Coal - Live on KZSC!

From left to right - Ayden, Emily, Rob, Brittany, Jeremy

I first met Rob Fidel at an open mic night at the Porter College dining hall. With Brittany Powers performing background vocals and banjo and my good friend Coryann Pitts singing and playing violin, Rob & co. crafted beautiful and delicate folk music. A few weeks after our first meeting, I featured Rob, Brittany, and Cory on my own radio show in Spring 2010.

Since his last performance on KZSC, Rob has formed a new group Beggar and The Coal. Brittany Powers still sings and plays banjo; the band also features Emily Judd on Cello, Ayden Graham on Violin, Vocals, and Guitar, Jeremy Lyon on Guitar, Vocals, and Harmonium whenever he finds himself in Santa Cruz. Oh - and Rob also plays the Glockenspiel.

Please join me in welcoming Beggar and The Coal to KZSC on The Rising Tide, this coming Friday May 13th (dun dun dun!). The radio show starts at 7:00 pm, streaming online at . Your ears will thank you for it.
