How does it relate to music?</p><p>Silence of the nature that Robert Fripp and Sandra Bain Cushman talk about occurring on Guitar Craft or now as it is known, Orchestra of Crafty Guitarists courses, is a keenly felt presence.</p> Thu, 03 Jul 2014 17:12:07 +0000 Jim Lange 14810 at http://wvpublic.org The Power of Silence Hear The Black Lillies Perform "Gold and Roses" Live on Mountain Stage http://wvpublic.org/post/hear-black-lillies-perform-gold-and-roses-live-mountain-stage <p><span id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_Sotw">The Black Lillies' signature mix of roots rock and and Appalachian music has earned them a loyal following at festivals across the southeast and beyond.
