Bronwyn and Barnaby Evans, Artistic Director of WaterFire, will give us a inside look into some of the special events at the upcoming fire on July 9th! Clear Currents will light up the river with illuminated koi fish mounted to canoes and kayaks, and the Légion d’Honneur (Legion of Honor), France’s highest civil and military decoration, will be conferred upon Rhode Island WWII Veteran, Mr. Ernest Frank Corvese. Bronwyn and Barnaby will be joined on the air by special guest Rose Weaver, who will be singing at the event on Saturday after returning from a tour in Paris. Our next guest, Bob Burke, will give us some insight into the fascinating tradition of champagne sabering. Finally, we’ll hear from Willa van Nostrand of Little Bitte Cocktails, whose creations you can enjoy at WaterFire’s beer garden!
