Upcoming Free Performances:
Black History Month: An Evening with Folksinger Charlie King:
Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn me ‘Round
January 31, Friday at 7 p.m.
From the hidden communication between slaves to the songs fueling movements for economic justice, music has served as a tool to educate, unite and inspire. This performance piece examines the history of the Civil Rights Movement for African Americans from 1955 to 1967, highlighting activists such as Rosa Parks, Fannie Lou Hamer and Ella Baker. It combines first person historical narrative with over a dozen songs and more than 200 images from the Civil Rights Struggle. Charlie King is a musical storyteller who sings and writes passionately about the extraordinary lives of ordinary people.
An Evening of Old-Timey Music with the Red Chair Recordings Crowd
February 7, Friday at 7 pm:
The music of Red Chair Recordings is like biscuits & gravy for the ears. It's stepping into your favorite living room; where a camera, some guitars and quite a few beloved musical friends are savored and recorded. It's a modest approach to finding local musicians. At this concert, the musicians come out of the living room right onto our stage. Scheduled to appear are the Hashknife Outfit, Barefoot & Pregnant, and Mr. Mudd & Mr. Gold. As always, meet the musicians in a QnA session after this free concert.
