Podcast: Restless Ground

Music of Volcanoes and Mountains: Sometimes the earth is restless beneath our feet – this episode of American Highways (show #87), as part of our Landscapes Series, is entitled Restless Ground. Tonight, pianist Guy Livingston brings us two major works of Alan Hovhaness, a song by The Razorbacks, some Hawaiian volcano music for guitars, and a chant by Navajo artist Louie Gonnie. It’s all about restless ground!
