What Makes it Great - Ladies of the Canyon

Rob Kapilow shares his latest What Makes it Great program in this special broadcast on Thursday (6/29) at 7 pm

Enjoy this special broadcast as host Rob Kapilow joins David Osenberg on the air live to share his latest What Makes It Great performance, recorded last month at the Kaufman Music Center's Merkin Hall. Entitled "Ladies of the Canyon," the program focuses on music by Carole King and Joni Mitchell as Rob takes us back in time to a magical moment in musical history, when a countercultural community outside of Los Angeles was home to some of the era’s most iconic songwriters.

This program features singers Alaina Ferris, Ann Klein & Starr Busby and includes King’s 1971 Tapestry, one of the best-selling albums of all time (“It’s Too Late,” “I Feel the Earth Move”), and Mitchell’s Clouds (1969) and Ladies of the Canyon (1970) (“Both Sides Now,” “Big Yellow Taxi,” “Woodstock,” “Chelsea Morning”).

(Please note, Exploring Music will follow at the special time of 9 pm)

Rob Kapilow is host and producer of What Makes It Great, from Merkin Concert Hall at Kaufman Music Center, New York City.
