Live and Local

A Sea Chantey Sing and the Real Vocal String Quartet


Chris Maden is a recent transplant to Champaign-Urbana, by way of seafaring towns like San Francisco; Providence, Rhode Island; Cambridge, Massachusetts; and Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Along the way, he picked up a serious fascination for sea shanties and other music of the waterways. He hosts a monthly shanty sing in Urbana, and he'll be my guest on the Monday edition of "Live and Local." I'll also talk with cellist Jessica Ivry of the Real Vocal String Quartet, who will play in Urbana Sunday and in Charleston next Tuesday.
