“The Lady to Her Guitar”

For him who struck thy foreign string,
I ween this heart has ceased to care;
Then why dost thou such feelings bring
To my sad spirit—old Guitar?

It is as if the warm sunlight
In some deep glen should lingering stay,
When clouds of storm, or shades of night,
Have wrapt the parent orb away.

It is as if the glassy brook
Should image still its willows fair,
Though years ago the woodman’s stroke
Laid low in dust their Dryad-hair.

Even so, Guitar, thy magic tone
Hath moved the tear and waked the sigh:
Hath bid the ancient torrent moan,
Although its very source is dry.

Emily Jane Bronte

We continue our Easter Tradition with a fascinating twist. On the last day of Women’s History Month, we honor the women who play guitar! A deep dive into their concepts and their gear with a few surprises. Among the featured guitarists we’ll hear Mary Osborne, Emily Remler, Mary Halvorson, Monnette Sudler, Jocelyn Gould, and Leni Stern to name a few.

Easter Sunday night March, 31 at 9 pm on The Nightside on KUVO JAZZ.
