Good people …

Like countless presenters of music everywhere, JAMinc has had to cancel its spring concerts at In Your Ear Studios and it’s likely our fall season will fall victim to the pandemic as well. I know you share our disappointment as we long for the days of savoring live music and pot-luck delicacies in that intimate Studio A space. Until we’re able to physically meet again, we’re planning our move to a high-end live stream of concerts with multiple HD cameras and the audio quality that you’ve come to expect from the In Your Ear crew. We hope to be making announcements about how this will all work by sometime this summer.

In the meantime, we’re excited to announce that our radio partners at VPM Music will be re-airing the seven most-recent IYE programs from last year beginning this Saturday, May 16, 2020 at 5 pm. This is a new time slot for us, making IYE the “warm up act” for Chris Thile’s “Live From Here” show. Below is a list of the featured artists you’ll hear starting this weekend.

May 16: Bruce Molsky’s Mountain Drifters
May 23: Rex Richardson Quintet
May 30: Aaron Burdett
June 6: Wayne Henderson & Helen White
June 13: Eric Stanley & Friends
June 20: Nellie McKay
June 27: Fireside Collective

These shows will air on 107.3 FM, 93.1 FM and via live stream.

We’re grateful to our music-minded public radio station for making this prime airtime available to us, and we sincerely thank our underwriters for their continued loyal support:

  • Digital Video Group
  • Threshold Counsel PC
  • Fralin Pickups
  • The Newport Festivals Foundation
  • Virginia Humanities and the Virginia Folklife Program
  • The Graduate Hotel/Richmond

And of course VPM Music is now holding its spring fundraiser and they need us now more than ever.

We’d appreciate your putting these dates on your calendars and sharing with anyone whom you think might like to tune in.

Like never before, we’re dependent on the healing power of music to see us through this unimaginable challenge. As always, you’re invited to keep up with us and our evolving reality here on our website:

Stay safe and listen up!
