On Saturday, June 2nd @ 11AM, DJ Carnacki features Portland composer, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, Marisa Anderson, for Women Hold Up Half The Sky. Tune in to hear his recent interview with Anderson along with a handful of selected songs from her current album, Cloud Corner

Marisa Anderson channels the history of the guitar and stretches the boundaries of tradition. Her playing is fluid, emotional, and masterful, featuring compositions and improvisations that re-imagine the landscape of American music. Her work applies elements of minimalism, electronic music, drone and 20th century classical music to compositions based on blues, jazz, gospel and country music.
