Ryan Meagher: An unforgettable new mix of music and fine art Coffeeshop Conversations @ Artichoke Music #386

By TOM D'ANTONI // Composer/guitarist Ryan Meagher and fine artist Tina Granzo have combined to capture in a new album/book what life was like during the Covid lockdown. It will be a lasting document of that time in our lives. And warnings of the future.

Ryan Meagher is in the Artichoke Café with me today. He is a very busy man. Besides his career as guitarist and composer, he is also the Artistic Director of the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble where he also runs their PJCE label. He also programs the Montavilla Jazz Festival, does a lot of teaching and I will run out of intro time if I continued to list what else he does.

He’s here to talk about his latest project, a combination of his music and Tina Granzo’s art called AftEarth. It was written and recorded during the Covid lockdown.

It’s one of the most unusual, compelling and evocative documents of that time. And something you should hear.

Let’s talk with Ryan Meagher.
