Kurland visits C.B. on heels of new CD
Bluffs native Ruvane Kurland returns to the area next week for a radio interview and a free performance at Cellar 19.
Kurland’s visit comes on the heels of his fifth album, “Life in 360 Degree,” released June 2. The album showcases numerous Ohio guest musicians and features Jimi “Jazz” Prescott (G. Love & Special Sauce) and Brian Fechino (Pat McGee Band).
On Monday, Kurland will be on the Steve King Show on CD 105.9 at around 8:30 a.m. Kurland will perform some songs as well as talk with King.
Kurland’s concert at Cellar 19, 928 Valley View Drive, is Tuesday from 7 to 10 p.m. This year, Kurland has started using an acoustic loop for his performances. Explained the artist, “I’m building (the song) in front of the audience by my voice, with acoustic instruments and a shaker.” Without a band or electric guitar, he achieves constructing each song by making use of a pedal board. The concert is free to the public.
Fans can keep track of Kurland’s tour by logging on to the newly re-launched Web site, www.ruvanekurland.com. Kurland maintains a tour journal on the site, in which he adds photos and commentary about each stop.
