For the final episode of their first online season, “Liberation Living Room” will premiere on Thursday, December 12th at noon here. Norah Jones will perform with Liberation Prophecy, the now-Louisville-based band she once played in with bandleader/saxophonist Jacob Duncan, after the pair met in college in Texas.
The series was filmed in Duncan’s brother Daniel’s shop, Greenhaus. Here’s more information from the Duncans and their crew:
“Liberation Living Room is a live art and discussion based children’s show created by Jacob Duncan, the leader of the jazz folk/rock band Liberation Prophecy. The show’s entire first season has been filmed in the back of Greenhaus in Louisville, KY, for an audience of children and puppets. Greenhaus is a locally and family-owned furniture store, and everyone involved–production team, crew, special guest, musicians and puppeteers–have donated their time and effort gratis to this unique community-building project. Their generosity has allowed each live filming to be free for every member of the audience, chosen via raffle. The puppets are built and performed by Squallis Puppeteers, a fifteen-year-old, non-profit, Louisville puppet theatre, created by Nora Christensen and run by her and her husband, Shawn Hennessey.
Liberation Prophecy is the house band, providing unique arrangements and unexpected improvisations which highlight the guest performances. Previous LLR guests have been Will Oldham, Ben Sollee, Rachel Grimes and Tyrone Cotton. Come for the art, stay for the compelling child directed Q and A sessions between the audience and the guests. Each episode is bookended with charming puppet sketches, and authentic child-on-the-street interviews about Big Words, such as harmony, collaboration, peace and love.”
