Fri, July 30 - Hit Rewind: Happy Traum
Good news for folks who missed Happy Traum's in-person concert — or who loved it and want to share it with distant friends. We recorded it! Grab a ticket, “Hit Rewind,” and watch the concert as a YouTube Premiere starting Friday, July 30. MORE
Wed, August 11 - Bringing it Home: Beautiful Gestures
A classical Indian dancer, an African American quilter, and an artist of hooked rugs: what do they have in common? Three local women featured in our Folk Artists Gallery chat about women's art and the many ways we make meaning with our hands. Virtual conversation on Wednesday, August 11. MORE
Fri, August 13 - “Spoonful of Jazz” Solo Jazz Dance Class
Hot diggity! IN-PERSON dancing returns with world champion swing dancer Carla Crowen. Learn how it's done in The Big Easy — and at the Tuba Skinny concert that evening, you'll be dancing in the aisles! Everyone is welcome at our IN-PERSON dance class on Friday, August 13. MORE
Fri, August 13 - Tuba Skinny
To call Tuba Skinny revivalists would be to miss the point. The New Orleans ensemble have never conceded the death of pre-1940s jazz and blues... they laze and weave around each other as if bebop never happened. LIVE IN PERSON! Outdoor concert on Friday, August 13. MORE
