I’ve never been good with trivia questions. I can remember my birthday, the first boy I kissed, how many quarts are in a gallon and that the notes on the bass clef between the lines from low to high are a|c|e|g because, indeed, all cows eat grass.
I have friends though, with an amazing propensity for recalling details, and on the occasion that I’ve accompanied them to trivia competitions, I’ve been duly impressed. Even though I’m not a trivia junkie I’d have been living under a rock during the 90s in Lancaster to not know of the king of trivia, Curtis Earth.
I was surprised to see a post on Facebook by our next house concert guest, Laney Jones regarding a radio spot she did with Curtis Earth in January while home in Orlando from her studies at Berklee College of Music in Boston. Below is a video clip of Laney singing “Devil Down” on the Curtis Earth Show, 91.5 FM.
Curtis moved to Orlando, Florida in 2002 to host trivia shows for WTKS 104.1 FM and for Disney cruise lines. In addition to Florida and the Atlantic Ocean, Earth Trivia continues today in Lancaster as well as the DC area via associates in these regions. Curtis also hosts the Curtis Earth Show on WPRK, 91.5 FM, Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida.
I do know now that if asked this trivia question: “Who’s one of the top emerging artists in folk/Americana music?” – you’d want me on your team.
To hear Laney Jones, Matthew Tonner (bass), Jacy Anderson (guitar) and Lars Thorson (fiddle) in Lancaster, plan to attend Chestnut House Concerts on Friday, February 21, 2014.Potluck at 6 pm, show at 7:00 pm. See the ‘about’ page for information to RSVP.
