Books, Beer & Bluejazz

November 19, 2016  ·  Saturday * Noon-4pm * NO cover

Join us the afternoon of Saturday, November 19th for an unforgettable event sponsored by the Piedmont Laureate program as part of the Durham Art Walk Holiday Market. Books, Beer & Bluejazz will feature well-known Durham-area authors reading from their work, bluegrass and flamenco jazz in between readings, local beers, and the down-home food of the renowned Blue Note Grill.

From noon until 2:00 PM, the Nash Street Ramblers will play their signature brand of blue grass, followed from 2:00 until 4:00 PM by guitar virtuoso and Sony recording artist Ed Stephenson, whose classical Spanish, flamenco, and flamenco fusion skills have been showcased by symphonies and in other special performances throughout the south. Authors Michael Malone, Margaret Maron, Katy Munger, Eryk Pruitt, Sarah Shaber, and Cat Warren will read from their work in between musical sets and take questions from the audience. Information on recommended CDs and books for the holidays will also be provided.

Admission is free and open to the public. The event is family friendly, though most suited to children age 10 and over. It’s going to be an epic Durham event, so mark your calendars now.

Let’s celebrate the arts and the start of the holiday season together. See you at the Blue Note Grill on November 19th!
