Tonight's Performance

5:30 pm

Jalopy Theatre Presents Piedmont Bluz

Folk Art Museum as part of a continuing partnership. Tonight’s performance features  the Piedmont Bluz Acoustic Duo, which is dedicated to the preservation of Country Blues and the Piedmont style.

Their mission is to help keep this rural, east coast tradition alive by educating audiences about this unique aspect of African American culture through musical entertainment. They have been entertaining audiences at venues from Washington State to Jerusalem and are much loved wherever they go. The husband and wife duo feel that “there are stories to tell, people to remember, and things that must be said” so, in addition to tickling your ears with delightful music, they weave a bit of history into the presentation of each song.
