12/9/09: The Platte

The Platte
The Platte

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – Wednesday, Doug takes another look at local music with The Platte. Andrew Shaw's music is perfect for a cold, wintry day. He says his work reflects on expansive landscapes - from the plains of his native Nebraska to the mountains of Utah. His music is simple, maybe even stark, but Shaw believes it's about giving every note and rhythm the chance to stand out. The Platte's new CD is called "Grus," and Shaw and others join us to play and talk about the work.
