Featuring Rainbow Star

Rainbow Star is a local musician often sharing songs based here in Berea. Her talent and heritage is why we are featuring her this week on The Berea Podcast. The songs featured in this episode were recorded in her kitchen. You may know the fiddle playing or the voice on the song, ‘Berea’ – that is Sam Gleaves (you can find his work at www.samgleaves.com)

Go here to see Rainbow Star’s playlist on Youtube!

If you go there she talks about her upcoming album titled, ‘Music From The Rainbow Sparkle Palace: Volume I’

After recording, Rainbow Star contacted me and clarified that Ophiuchus is pronounced “o-FEW-kuss” rather than whatever I said in the episode – Thanks for the clarification!
