Crystal Bright & the Silver Hands

crystalbright2.gif

On the album "Muse and Bones," Crystal Bright's voice is clear and theatrical. She plays accordion, saw, keyboards, adungu, concertina, and bombo. Reviewers have a hard time describing her music, so they try to evoke a sense of mood instead, comparing her sound to "dark fairy tales" and a "Coney Island sideshow." Bright and her band, The Silver Hands, join host Frank Stasio to play live and discuss what influences their music.

Shawn Wen joined the staff of The State of Things in March 2012 and served as associate producer until February 2014.
Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
