WVBR's Bound for Glory Fall 2015

Sunday, October 4, 2015 at 8:00am to 11:00am

Anabel Taylor Hall, Cafe
Anabel Taylor Hall, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

Phil Shapiro, host of WVBR's Bound for Glory since its inception in 1967, announces the Fall schedule, the start of the 49th year of this Central New York musical tradition. 

WVBR's Bound for Glory, North America's longest running live folk concert broadcast, broadcasts live from the Cafe at Anabel Taylor Hall at Cornell, on Sunday nights.  Bound for Glory brings central New York another series of free folk concerts, on WVBR-FM, 93.5 and 105.5.  We promise some excellent acoustic music, presented by long-time host Phil Shapiro. 

The show runs Sunday nights from 8 to 11, with live sets at 8:30, 9:30, and 10:30.  All three sets are different.  Come to as many sets as you wish.  Admission in the live audience at Anabel Taylor is free and is open to everyone in the area.  Kids are always welcome.    Refreshments are available.  For further information, call Phil Shapiro at 607-844-4535, or e-mail


AUG. 30       KYLE CAREY.  An excellent writer, whose Southern heritage is showing, who happens to be a speaker of... Scots Gaelic.  And that appears in her show as well.  She's a delightful singer and performer, and very welcome back to Bound for Glory.

SEPT. 6 MAD GOAT STRING BAND.  Old Timey tunes, and old American songs, with great arrangements and tight harmonies.  Excellent energy and music that's both laid back and intense at the same time.  It'll be their first Bound for Glory show.  Hope you'll come.

SEPT. 13     JOHN KIRK AND TRISH MILLER.  It's been a very long time since John and Trish were on the show.  Fiddle, banjo, clogging on the radio.  Super singing.  Both traditional and contemporary songs and tunes, sure to leave you with a smile.

SEPT. 20        BOB WHITE AND FRIENDS.  Bob White was quite well known and quite influential at the end of the Great Folk Scare, but he disappeared from view for a few decades.  He's resurfaced, and, with a bunch of friends, is performing traditionally flavored American folk, with strength and flair.  We're very pleased to have him back on the show.

SEPT. 27        LOUISE MOSRIE.  She comes from Nashville, but her flavor is all her own.  Louise Mosrie is a most excellent singer and songwriter, who will make you feel good at the same time that she makes you think.  Please join us for the second Louise Mosrie Bound for Glory show.

OCT. 4        RICHIE AND ROSIE.  Richie Stearns and Rosie Newton return to Bound for Glory, with songs both old and new that have the flavor of the folk tradition.  Richie plays wild and wonderful banjo, Rosie does the same for the fiddle, and they both sing in really nice harmonies.

On OCTOBER 11, Bound for Glory will be Albums from the Studios, as Cornell takes Fall Break, and the Cafe at Anabel Taylor is closed.  Give Phil a call at 607-273-2121.  There will be seven more live shows in the late Fall, starting OCTOBER 18, including visits from ANDREW McKNIGHT,  JONATHAN BYRD, and MIKE AGRANOFF.  Details to follow.                           
WVBR's BOUND FOR GLORY, North America's longest running live folk concert broadcast, Sunday nights, 8 - 11 pm, Ithaca, NY, since 1967.
