Upcoming Performances in July

I’ll be playing bass with my favorite jazz (and other music) buddies Bernie Petteway and Ed Butler – Thursday July 1st at the General Store Cafe in Pittsboro.

Don’t miss the Eno Festival this July 4th weekend. It’s a great event for a great cause. Three days of music and crafts. The weather looks good – but if you get too hot go sit in the river. I’ll be playing on Monday July 5 at 10:00 AM and 12:15 PM with Craicdown – filling in (no, I’m NOT bringing the accordion) for David D. who injured his back. Jim Roberts and Rob Sharer – great musicians.

If you like to dance I’ll be playing viol for the Sun Assembly English Country Dancers on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays. They teach each dance so if you’re new to English Country Dance you can still give it a try. The music is beautiful and the dances are fun to watch even if you can’t join in yourself.

Speaking of dance – I start rehearsing this week for a project at the American Dance Festival in Durham. I’ll be playing solo bass for a theatrical tap dance piece by Margaret Morrison on the July 23rd program in Reynolds Theater. It looks like it’s going to be very interesting.

I’ll be playing bass with Steve Wing and Beverly Botsford on July 16th at the Upper Chatham Lower Alamance Community Center. Wow – have I really been playing jazz with these two for 28 years now?!

The month closes out with the Bernie Petteway Trio at Cafe Beyu in Durham – a VERY happening place.
