The scariest part of being a fledgling pop musician is the fea of tomorrow.Where is next gig? Will I make enough money to buy food and pay the rent? Will I ever get a record contract?All of these questions and many more have been asked by asuperb pop band from Vermont called The Boyz.The trio has been together for nearly eight years and, as truth would have it, are no longer boys but young men."Sometimes it's hard to be optimistic but we don't let it get to us," guitarist Mark Bowie said of the band's struggle to get a major recording deal.

MANY IN THE country music industry were shocked -- and a couple even outraged -- that Randy Travis was shut out at the Country Music Awards last week in Nashville.Up for entertainer of the year for the fourth time, Travis, who hosted the show with Reba McIntyre on NBC, was once again snubbed in favor of George Strait.But to hear the ever-humble Travis tell it, he won't lose any sleep over something he never had."Awards are a funny thing because you always feel great if you win one but you never seem to feel too awful when you don't," Travis says.

The ever-rising spiral of Manuel Barrueco's career reached a high point recently when the Cuban-born classical guitarist entered a London studio to begin work on a CD with tenor Placido Domingo.On this occasion, Mr. Domingo was doing more than singing. Having recently expanded his horizons as a conductor, Mr. Domingo was leading the London Philharmonia as Mr. Barrueco performed the soulful "Concierto de Aranjuez" by Joaquin Rodrigo.The two struck an instant camaraderie, and Mr. Domingo insisted on changing plans for the rest of the disk.

I feel that variety is the spice of life." At the moment, classical guitarist Manuel Barrueco is talking about his recital at Shriver Hall tomorrow evening, a program that will include works by Bach, Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo and the contemporary American composer Lou Harrison. But he may as well be speaking of his artistic life in general, because Barrueco's musical career is nothing if not varied. For half the year, the Cuban-born guitarist is in Baltimore, where he lives and teaches at the Peabody Conservatory; for the other half, he's on the road, giving performances or making recordings.

World Party has had an album out for more than six months, and leader Karl Wallinger is still shocked that people haven't gotten the initial joke.The album, strangely titled Goodbye Jumbo, was never meant to sell a million copies or take the band on a major tour. Wallinger said it was an educational process in the studio that was purposely given an awkward title and done with "no marketing ethic at all.""I still hear DJs say Goodbye Jumbo and I laugh," said Wallinger, whose band will perform at Lisner Auditorium at George Washington University in D.C. Sunday night.

In a world filled with the loud and the blatant, the classical guitar - a plug-free, not unplugged instrument - offers a rare, inviting balm. And when Manuel Barrueco's hands are at work, the guitar speaks volumes, without ever having to raise its voice. There wasn't any doubt that Barrueco had talent when he entered the Peabody Institute to study guitar in the early 1970s. The extent of that talent, though, came as a surprise. "We knew by his second year that this was a kind of player we had never seen before," says Ray Chester, head of Peabody's guitar department.

Summertime is the season to thumb your nose at the Who's famous line: "Hope I die before I get old." That quip has long since passed into folklore, as more classic rockers than ever pour into amphitheaters, trying to revive past glories and prove their music isn't just a passing fad. Rockers from the '60s, '70s, '80s and early '90s - the spectrum of classic rock as defined by radio - are playing to a cadre of new and established fans, while performing the...
