The Charlotte Folk Society in conjunction with The Charlotte Blues Society bring you Blues Singer/Guitarist/Historian Scott Ainslie as part of The Folk Society's 2013-2014 Gathering Concert Series on Valentine's Day.
Scott Ainslie is a traditional acoustic blues singer, guitarist, historian, and songwriter with personal roots in the Civil Rights era and a great affection for cross-cultural exchange. He is a powerful musician, a fine singer, and a masterful storyteller.
This concert will focus on North Carolina blues traditions, both African American and European American. As well as performing on his National Steel Guitar, he’ll play instruments from earlier times, such as the Didley Bow and a predecessor of the modern banjo. Concert goers can expect to be both entertained and informed.
Free parking is available in a deck adjacent to the Stella Center. Accessible entry and an elevator are available through the ground floor door on the parking lot side of the building. Note: due to street repairs on Elizabeth Avenue, enter parking deck from 4th Street. Exit the back of the deck to the Stella Center parking lot.
Charlotte Folk Society Gatherings are made possible, in part, with funding from the Arts & Science Council and the North Carolina Arts Council, an agency of the Department of Cultural Resources, and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.
