Listen to Alicia Witt live from Cafe 939 and Martin Guas on BIRN Alive this week

Tune in to birnCORE on Thursday, May 2 at 8:00 p.m. for a broadcast of the live performance by pianist, songwriter, singer and actress Alicia Witt live from the Red Room at Cafe 939.

Witt kicks off her 18 city North American tour supporting her latest release, 15,000 Days, here in Boston. The EP, her fourth release as an independent artist, is a sweeping, big-hearted record, its songs rooted in modern arrangements and timeless melodies. Witt wrote the material during a busy period that found her starring in the TV series Nashville, stealing the spotlight with an appearance on The Walking Dead, and playing shows — including a performance on the Grand Ole Opry — in the wake of her previous album, Revisionary History. The five songs that comprise 15,000 Days are rooted in the lessons learned during a life spent onstage, behind the piano, in front of the camera, in love, out of love, and en route from one destination to another

Tune in to BIRN1 on Saturday, May 4 at 4:00 p.m. for a broadcast our last BIRN Alive performance and interview for the spring semester, featuring berklee student, vocalist, and guitarist Martin Guas from Argentina.

Thanks to everyone who has performed and to everyone who has listened in this semester. We look forward to presenting an amazing lineup of artists this summer!
