Join host Nancy Maria Balach for a conversation with Byron Asher and members of SKRONTCH about this fascinating musical project.

How do you explore the intertwining histories of jazz and anti-Jim Crow activism in New Orleans -- musically? How do you honor early jazz traditions and jazz clarinet masters with a contemporary sound? How does collective improvisation work? And where did the name SKRONTCH come from, anyway?!

Balach and Asher will discuss these ideas and more on the set of LMR Live! -- all with the show's trademark lively spirit. And you are invited to be in the audience!

No ticket required. If you can't make the live-streamed show, tune in online vialivingmusicresource.com
