Music can be a powerful tool for helping us cope with the loss of the ones we love—especially when our community comes together to experience that music live. KEXP’s morning show host John Richards invited us to a special community evening on death and music at Town Hall. Richards shared his inspirations for his annual “Mom Show,” a program of remembrance and reflection that began as a memorial for the loss of his mother. Richards took an honest look at how a community shares their experiences of death and music, presenting special musical guests, personal stories from past years of the program, and an exploration into the intersection of these two distinct veins of life and how they feed into one another. Join Richards for a live heartfelt program urging us to handle death through music and community.
A tribute to Shawn Smith
