Spiders get such a bad rap. That’s too bad because these unique arachnids are fascinating creatures that have unique mating behaviors, exhibit maternal care of their young and weave complex and beautiful webs. Some even manage to fly through the air! Tune in tonight and hear a conversation with RICHARD A. BRADLEY, Associate Professor in the Department of Evolution, Ecology and Oganismal Biology at The Ohio State University. He discusses his new state of the art and much needed guide COMMON SPIDERS OF NORTH AMERICA. 

Karen Grenier

With the release of her latest CD "Crazy Love", Karen Grenier continues to make her mark as a both a gifted songwriter and crafty lyricist. Drawing in both new and faithful fans, Karen's songs resonate in the heart and leave listeners anticipating the next song and humming her catchy melodies.

A polished performer, Karen's smooth, penetrating voice, rhythmic acoustic style and positive emotional energy make for an excellent concert experience. Karen's songs possess a distinctly American Folk-Rock sound leaning at times towards bluegrass.

Wide Open Spaces

Wide Open Spaces lives up to their name by playing "bluegrass without borders."  Combining the traditional sounds of fiddle,  banjo, mandolin, guitar and bass with modern song-writing, jazzy - rock edged arrangements and uber-tight 3 part harmonies, they take audiences on a musical joy ride that have some people saying "I can't believe that's bluegrass!"  Anything can happen - and usually does.

Performing for the past 40 years, singer/songwriter Lenny Solomon placed second in the 2012 International Indie Songwriting contest and was runner-up in the Song Of The Year Songwriters Contest. His vocals are reminiscent of John Prine with elements of the old C&W singers such as like Merle Travis and Roy Acuff.

Lenny will be backed by session bassist and Solomon Band member Don Barry who might sing a song or two of his own.
