11/29/11: The Music and Mysticism of La Monte Young
Tuesday, we're talking about one of the most enigmatic and fascinating characters in American music. La Monte Young was a pioneer of the minimalist movement and his work influenced artists like Terry Riley, Yoko Ono, The Velvet Underground and Brian Eno. So it may surprise you to hear that he was born in a log cabin in Idaho and worked the family farm on Utah Lake. BYU Professor Jeremy Grimshaw has just written a new biography and joins Doug to talk about Young's music and mysticism.
- Tuesday, November 29 at 7:00 p.m., Jeremy Grimshaw will give a reading at The King's English Bookshop in Salt Lake City. For more information, call the store at 801-484-9100 or click here
