If you like gazing up at the night sky, then you have something in common with the members of Jelloslave. Like you, we can’t help but notice when the moon, stars, and planets are shining especially bright.
Today our love for Irish music and planets collide as NASA announces a pretty cool name for one of Mercury’s craters. Carolan Crater has been named in honor of the Irish harpist and composer Turlough O’Carolan (1670 – 1738).
Jelloslave congratulates Michelle Kinney who has recently been selected to be a winner of the 2014 McKnight Composition Fellowship. She is among one of four Minnesota composers out of 63 applicants to receive this prestigious recognition of excellence in the field of musical composition.
