shroomfest.jpg

A classic Cincinnati band of the 1960's will be celebrated at an upcoming fundraiser for the Play It Forward foundation, supporting local musicians in need. 

Shroomfest will bring together a variety of bands playing the music of The Sacred Mushroom on September 1 and our Brian O'Donnell finds out more from Play It Forward's Bob Nave and Joe Stewart, an original member of Sacred Mushroom.

Brian O’Donnell has been sharing his love of music on the radio since the early 1970’s. He is a true public radio renaissance man hosting classical music on 90.9 WGUC weekday mornings; contributing music and arts features for 91.7 WVXU’s Around Cincinnati program; and hosting Saturday Morning with Brian O’D on WNKU. Musicians, artists and community arts leaders regularly stop by to record interviews with Brian— from Jaime Laredo with the Linton Music Series, or J.R. Cassidy from the Northern Kentucky Symphony, to a curator of an exhibit at The Cincinnati Art Museum, or a soloist in town to perform with the CSO, his relaxed style puts everyone at ease and lets their story come through.
