Anyone who knows me, or reads this website, knows how much I adore the Fallout Shelter (also referred to as the Extended Play Sessions). The venue had to close suddenly in December and it has been missed!
Please read the following that was released by the new venue, the Grass Roots Cultural and Performing Arts Center, and consider donating.
The Lullaby Project is the first recording by Felipe Salles’ Interconnections Ensemble. Felipe is a Brazilian jazz musician (saxophone) and composer who is a professor at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
If you click on the link to The Lullaby Project above, you can read more about the project and contribute to it as well. I have had the privilege of seeing Felipe perform and know how good he is. I hope you will consider contributing to the worthy project as well.
The final days of the Kickstarter campaign for the documentary The Blues Society, directed by Augusta Palmer, are upon us. It captures the Memphis Country Blues Festival between 1966 and 1969, a time when blacks and whites came together in a city full of strife and segregation.
