Today’s Local Music: Bobby McFerrin

Music by Bobby McFerrin

The distinctive sounds we’re featuring on today’s show are by Bobby McFerrin. He wasn’t born here, and he doesn’t live here, but Bobby McFerrin got his start here: his first public performance was at the Noe Valley Ministry, many years ago. McFerrin has a warning on his website: listening to his music may produce unparalleled joy and a rejection of the predictable. He’s in town a week from Saturday, March 30th, with the San Francisco Symphony for a special show at Davies Symphony Hall, starting at 8pm.
