Piedmont Bluz Acoustic Duo LIVE on the Lawn

September 11 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

$20.

With “stories to tell, people to remember, and things that must be said,” these Ambassadors of Country Blues music and the Piedmont style of fingerpicking will tickle your ears with delightful music. Husband and wife Valerie and Benedict Turner are on a mission to help preserve rural, east coast traditions by educating audiences about this unique aspect of African American culture, and weave a bit of history into the presentation of each song.

Inducted into the NY Blues Hall of Fame in 2018, these tradition bearers have been featured in numerous festivals including the Newport Folk Festival, Chicago Blues Festival, Tel Aviv Blues Festival, Clearwater Revival, and Brooklyn Folk Festival. They have traveled as far as Europe and the Middle East to share their music, and are much loved wherever they go.

Bring a lawn chair and picnic. In case of rain, the concert will be held in our historic carriage shed. Tickets are $20.

This project, the last in our John Cohen Memorial Music Series, is made possible, in part, through the Putnam Arts Council’s Arts Link Grant Program with public funds provided through the NY State Council on the Arts with support from the Office of the Governor and the NY State Legislature.
