The Dirty Dozen Brass Band & the Last Waltz Ensemble Return to the Pour House

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , on April 15, 2014 by Lowcountry Boil

1920266_10152050975589565_1081741604_nThe Dirty Dozen & the Last Waltz Ensemble team up for a special night at the Charleston Pourhouse on Friday, April 18th. Doors open at 8pm with LAST WALTZ kicking it off at 8:45pm, DDBB horns will join the Last Waltz Ensemble followed by a full DDBB show. 

To describe how the Dirty Dozen Brass Band has arrived at its 35th Anniversary, trumpet player Gregory Davis employs a tried-and true New Orleans-centric analogy: “It ends up being like a pot of gumbo – you drop in a little okra, drop in a little shrimp, you drop in some crabs. Before you know it, you’ve mixed in all these different ingredients and you’ve got a beautiful soup. That was our approach to music early on and it still is today.”

Started in Atlanta, The Last Waltz Ensemble is a musical group that progressively plays the music of Bob Dylan and The Band.  The group is an amalgam of the best players in the nation presenting the legendary and timeless music of the super-group, THE BAND, whose influence is still felt in music nearly 30 years after its last performance.

Tickets: $17 advance ticket, $20 day of show

Setting the scene for a true farm to table experience, each dinner event will take place at a local farm. The gastronomic evening with start with a cocktail hour and hors d’ oeuvres from 5:30-6:30pm and then family style dinner will be served from 6:30-8:30pm. The first dinner will be held on May 4th at Walters Farm in Saint George with additional dinners in the series in August and November. With a table set for 40 guests, the cost is $75/person with tickets available at www.charlestonculinarytours.com.

Farmer Steven Walter

Farmer Steven Walter

Walters Farm is a fitting start to the Fresh at the Farm Dinner series as Chef Thompson and Stephen Walter, proprietor of Walters Farm, have been friends since childhood. Chef Thompson jokingly refers to Steven as “his personal farmer”. Steven Walters personally grows and harvests everything on his 5-acre farm and then makes the 45-minute drive to deliver it to Chef Thompson. Both are excited about allowing guests to dine on ingredients right where they are produced, fortifying the connection between farm and food.

Charleston Culinary Tours combine the best of Charleston history, cocktails and food with unique tours that highlight the Lowcountry. Each Charleston Culinary Tour visits several different restaurants, bars or the Farmer’s Market to combine elements of a historical tour with a culinary adventure. The food and drinks on the tours are chosen by various restaurant and bar partners and feature an array of eclectic dishes and concoctions that provide insight into Charleston’s cuisine and cocktail scene. On each tour, guests will not only have an opportunity to sample some of the Lowcountry’s finest offerings, but also to meet the owners, chefs and mixologists behind Charleston’s impressive culinary and bar innovations.

“What the Folk Festival was formed through a friendship with Todd Snider and his love of playing in this area. The lineup includes musicians that come close to emulating what Todd does as a singer/songwriter,” said festival organizer Brett Ford.  “As we plan to make this an annual event, my goal is to continue to have Americana type groups play and get recognized for what they do, since the majority of them don’t receive the radio play or media recognition that they deserve.”

A portion of proceeds will benefit Carolina Studios, a non-profit that provides at risk students a safe environment to foster creative, educational and career-focused initiatives through music technology and media arts.
