The River Monks on "Java Blend" on 4/20/13

Apr 19, 2013


This Saturday at 2 PM, we'll broadcast a recent performance by The River Monks  on "Java Blend."

  The River Monks are a folk band from Des Moines, Iowa. Awhile back, when the people of France settled there, they observed some monks trapping fish in the river. They named the river "La Riviere des Moines"  - or "The River of the Monks." The city that eventually formed around the river became Des Moines. The River Monks are "voices for Des Moines, for Iowa, for the United States, for the world, and for you." The group's latest album Jovials is available for streaming and for purchase at The River Monks' Bandcamp site.
