Charlotte Mecklenburg Library - Hickory Grove Branch

ASC Culture Blocks and Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Present:

NC Roots Music Series at Hickory Grove Library- 

Second Thursdays October-December 1:00-2:00PM

Music Maker Relief Foundation preserves the musical traditions of the South by directly supporting the musicians who make it, ensuring their voices will not be silenced by poverty and time. Music Maker gives future generations access to their heritage through documentation and performance programs that build knowledge and appreciation of America’s musical traditions.

October 10 - Alexa Rose :  Alexa Rose has the rare ability to find strikingly original melodies that nevertheless sound like they must have existed for a long time, stored away maybe in the ether of creativity, self-evident and awaiting discovery. Moving deftly between complex dexterity and heart-tugging familiarity, Rose achieves a sound that is pure and maintains the brassy attitude and simple refrains that run straight through American roots music from mountain ballads to rock n roll.     

November 14 - Pat “Mother Cohen” Blues:  A Katrina survivor with 20 years’ experience of Bourbon Street performance, Pat Cohen is known for her incredible showmanship and infectious confidence During her performances, she unfurls the tapestry of her life experiences to her audience in soulful words and music. 

December 12 - Thomas Rhyant:  Thomas Rhyant uses music to tell the stories of those who came before him, allowing people to not only understand, but emotionally connect with, history. With Sam Cooke’s style as a guide, Rhyant pursues his calling: making people happy by sharing the music he loves, and thereby keeping it alive.     

Each show will be followed by a Q&A with the artists.
