Over two Lowcountry winter days of Sat-Sun, Dec. 4-5, a generous helping of Charleston’s finest musical acts will display their talents across four stages at The Awendaw Green Music Festival. Performers include Steven Fiore, Gaslight Street, James Justin & Co, Mark Bryan, the Shrimp Record Family Band, Slow Runner, Mac Leaphart and My Ragged Company, The Tips, John Wesley Satterfield and his Damn Fine Band, Ryan Bonner and the Dearly Beloved, The Bushels, Lindsay Holler and the Western Polaroids, The Casual Kings, Firework Show, Deepwater Soul Society, Megan Jean and the KFB, The Freeloaders, Torture Town, Po’Ridge, Steel Petals, The Danielle Howle Band, Josh Roberts and Doug Jones.

In all, over 150 performers amidst 66 unique acts will play over the two days. Two Center Stages will rotate 45-minute sets, allowing continuous music from noon – 10 pm each day. The Dance Stage will highlight an assortment of grooving and growing acts. A particularly exciting development is the creation of the Singer/Songwriter Stage at the stage normally used for Barn Jams. Featuring an ‘in-the-round’ performance style, this stage will offer an intimate level of connectivity amongst individual performers and their audience.

Tickets for the Awendaw Green Music Festival are $15/day or $25 for a weekend pass and students $10/day or $20/weekend pass, available at the gate. Food and drink will be reasonably priced and provided by the Seewee Restaurant Grill on site and Palmetto Brewery. Please, no coolers. Proceeds from the Awendaw Green Music Festival will benefit the Wando High School Band Program, the American Red Cross, Toys for Tots and other local causes.

And don’t forget about the live music provided by Charleston’s very own KURLY WOLF! You have seen this great local band all around town and now they will rock out with all us reindeers.

The Reindeer Run, presented by Piggly Wiggly and Half-moon Outfitters, is a family-oriented, pet-friendly 5k run/walk through the lower peninsula of downtown Charleston, SC. The event has grown significantly over the years; from only a few hundred participants to record attendance of almost 3,000 runners in 2009. Throughout the history of the event, the Charitable Society of Charleston (CSC) has donated over $370,000 to the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). In 2009 alone CSC donated $70,000 to the Children’s Hospital. The funds generated from the Reindeer Run help MUSC develop and maintain a variety of programs in the Children’s Hospital and the Darby Children’s Research Institute, including research in the prevention and treatment of childhood diseases.

Down Home Blues Open Mic and Guitar Clinic with bluesman Steve Cheseborough will take place on Tuesdays, November 23, 30 and December 7 at Fiery Ron’s Home Team BBQ, located at 2209 Middle Street on Sullivan’s Island. At 6pm, guests can meet and greet with Steve and receive a brief blues lesson and then at 7pm can get on stage to sing the blues or listen to others during the blues open mic until 8pm. The evenings will wind up with a set from the master himself from about 9-10pm. These are nights to come sing us the blues, get a lesson in how to play them or just sit back and listen while enjoying award-winning BBQ and fine libations such as the famous frozen painkiller!

Bluesman, author, and professor, Steve Cheseborough is steeped in the music of Memphis Minnie, Muddy Waters, Charley Jordan, Bo Carter, Robert Johnson, Tommy Johnson, Mississippi John Hurt, Blind Lemon Jefferson and the other great blues artists and works from their original recordings as well as his experience in Delta juke joints. Steve Cheseborough plays the 1920s-30s-style acoustic blues, sounding eerily like an old 78 record, but without the scratches.

Joe Bonamassa Set to Play Performing Arts Center

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , on November 4, 2010 by Lowcountry Boil

Joe Bonamassa will be playing on November 22nd at 8pm at the Performing Arts Center in North Charleston. Tickets start at $47.65 and are available at Ticketmaster.

As Joe Bonamassa grows his reputation as one of the world’s greatest guitar players, he is also evolving into a charismatic blues-rock star and singer-songwriter of stylistic depth and emotional resonance. His ability to connect with live concert audiences is transformational, and his new album, Black Rock, brings that energy to his recorded music more powerfully than ever before. Keeping with his blues roots but fluently moving between rock n’ roll and international sounds, 2010 is not only a new decade but a new era for Bonamassa.

“The New King of Blues” – Guitarist Magazine

“Bonamassa is a bold talent.” – Billboard

“Wicked guitar thrills.” – Mike Joyce, Washington Post
