Firehouse Sessions – Ed Kabotie

Play

Ed Kabotie joins us for an exclusive Firehouse Session!

Ed Kabotie traveled to Bloomington, Indiana in honor of Native American Heritage Month this past November. He is from the Hopi village of Shungopavi in northern Arizona, and the Tewa village of Khap’o Owinge – Santa Clara Pueblo, New Mexico. Kabotie’s music incorporates important messages including the protection of the environment and the sacredness of the land. “We feel we were given the land as
trustees…It’s everybody’s responsibility to take care of it and to live life in a balanced way in harmony.”

It is not often that one encounters a Native American musician like Kabotie, who sings in 3 different languages – Hopi, Tewa and English. By incorporating “looping” technology, Kabotie creates electroacoustic Native American music with his guitar and flute that is grounded in his heritage “born out of meditations,” but is also influenced by rock and reggae. He is a solo artist, but also plays vocals/guitar for Los Coyotes or Tha Yoties (a rock/reggae trio based in Flagstaff, Arizona), vocals/guitar for Twin Rivers (a Nu-Native band based out of Sante Fe, New Mexico), and the drums for Summit Dub Squad (A Reggae/Hip-hop band based in Flagstaff, Arizona). “Loloma” is from his album Origins, and “Don’t Worry be Hopi” is from his new album Shadowed by the Mountain.

Firehouse Sessions – Shovels and Rope

Play

Much is made of the on-stage chemistry between husband-and-wife Americana duo Shovels & Rope, who solder their harmonies with steady eye contact. During their visit to the WFHB studios, Cary Ann Hearst laughed it off, “We’ve been married for about ten thousand years!” Michael Trent backed her up, saying that the glances passed between them during sets are not about romance: “It’s communication. We’re talking about music.”

The Charleston-based band’s second album, 2012’s O’Be Joyful, made them stars on the country folk scene, with the single “Birmingham” picking up song of the year honors at the Americana Music Awards. Swimmin’ Time, released last summer, has resulted in even more national exposure, but the duo is sticking to their insulated DIY ethos. They talked with host Katie Moulton about collaboration, touring, and what they never leave home without (hint: it has paws).
