Death Penalty Two anti-death penalty groups are honoring several people for their work tonight. It's the annual awards banquet of Death Penalty Focus and Friends Committee on Legislation of California. Two of the honorees join us today on Insight. We'll talk with them about their work and their views on the death penalty.
Young Trombonist If you watched the Grammys in January, you'll probably agree one of the highlights of the evening was the performance by the Dave Matthews Band of their hit song "You and Me," along with dozens of young musicians. One of those young musicians was a trombonist from Davis named Jon Hatamiya. This weekend, Jon and other members of the Davis High School Jazz Band are playing a concert with one of Northern California's top jazz groups, the Capital Jazz Project. You'll meet Jon Hatamiya and hear him play live in our studio.
Elizabeth Streb One of the most unusual and spectacular dance groups in America is surely the Streb Extreme Action Company. Founded and led by Elizabeth Streb, winner of a MacArthur "Genius" award, the company's dances are often acrobatic, and sometimes even dangerous. The Streb Company performed last Sunday at the Mondavi Center. The following day, Jeffrey moderated a discussion at the Mondavi Center with Elizabeth Streb and two of her dancers.
Paul Barrere Rock and blues guitarist Paul Barrere is best known for his many years work with the band Little Feat. But he's also one-half of an acoustic due with fellow Little Feat guitarist Fred Tackett. Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett are playing tonight in Sacramento. We'll talk with Paul Barrere and hear some of his music.
