Jeff Dent 
Singer Songwriter. Stopped sleeping and woke into Music. After 2 yrs. of beating out some pieces I stepped out onto Home Team BBQ's stage and started running...never too old...Americana

Jordan Igoe 
Born and raised in Charleston, SC, Jordan Igoe is a singer-songwriter, whose songs are as Southern and soulful as she is. The multi-instrumentalist has been playing professionally for over ten years as a solo performer, and with a rotating lineup of stellar backup musicians around Charleston and regionally in the Southeast. Having grown up in a musical family, Igoe taught herself how to play the piano at age 10 and picked up the guitar a few years later, and writes catchy, heartfelt songs with both instruments. It is her raw, soulful voice, however, that immediately grabs the listener and holds on. On February 14th, 2014, Igoe released her debut album entitled, "How to Love."

Danielle Howle 
True connection can only come about through pure, honest expression. It comes from knowing how to find a truth within and having the courage to unabashedly share it. As an artist-poet, Danielle Howle is a natural storyteller through song, and she makes the biggest impact by sharing simple truths. Her music comes from a place of self-awareness and is on a perpetual journey of self-discovery. She balances powerful style with conversational lyrics, sharing her honest experience of life.
Known for captivating audiences with her stunning vocal ability, contagious energy, and incredible songwriting skills, Danielle’s music ranges from country swamp blues to jazz to Americana. The South-Carolinian song belle has been compared to Flannery O'Connor, Patsy Cline, and Nina Simone. Reviewed 7 times in The New York Times, calling her “an extraordinary mind, a southern storyteller with a gorgeous sense of melody that should be pouring out of stereos everywhere.”
An effortless and deeply compelling performer, Danielle’s command of music is astounding; her intelligent writing deftly scales anything from ballads to rap to heavy soul. She combines introspective lyrics galvanizing mass appeal. Her sound contains definite influences from jazz, country, southern rock with a jam band danceability at live shows. As a self-taught musician, Danielle defies traditional structures, intuitively creating music that shines with her own idiosyncratic style.
Danielle has demonstrated prowess at every turn of her career, from her early band days to the eclectic acoustic and electronic detours she’s taken since; with a career spanning twenty years, she’s covered a lot of ground. Beyond her life as a singer-songwriter, she’s turned her hand to successful production, sound track collaborations with film makers, and a variety of commercial work. Danielle has an incredibly diverse range, the only constant perhaps being the beloved guitar she shares her stages with.
Danielle has opened for legendary musicians such as Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt, Sam Bush, The Avett Brothers, and Fugazi. She’s headlined countless shows and festivals, twice played at the New York City Music Hall, opening for the Indigo Girls, and has sold out rooms across the country, followed always by her ardent fan base. Well acquainted with being on the road, Danielle has toured in the US and abroad. She’s played at Sarah McLachlan's Lilith Fair, and has toured with Elliott Smith and Ani DiFranco, with Ani having described her as “a melodically nimble being.”
Danielle has rolled into 2017 with guns blazing, having most recently been on tour across the country with the Indigo Girls, supporting her new album recorded with her five-piece band. Four of Danielle’s numerous albums have been released on Amy Ray of the Indigo Girls’ indie label Daemon Records, with other releases on Simple Machines, Kill Rock Stars, and Valley Entertainment. Danielle’s latest EP, Pot of Water, is a collection of sonic experiments, pairing a number of different producers, studios, and techniques, including a track mixed by Grammy award-winning producer Malcolm Burn. 
Considered by many to be South Carolina's best kept musical secret, Danielle Howle is a punk rock girl with the voice of a honky-tonk angel. Opening for such diverse acts as Bob Dylan, Ani Difranco, Fugazi, and Indigo Girls, she has garnered worldwide acclaim while somehow remaining under the radar of mainstream America. Now is the time for South Carolina to share it's secret with the rest of America.

    STAR - Super Talented Actors Rasslin' is a musical comedy that follows a group of out-of-work actors and actresses who take a life-line on an ambitiously pitched wrestling show run by a B-movie director with something to prove to the world, William “Alright, Alright” Simmons and a local soft-spoken, trust-fund kid and wrestling fanatic, Jimmy “The Boss” Miller. When a real wrestler, Reba “The Italian Tickler” Abele joins the team, things begin to look promising for this downcast group.

TALK | Esau Jenkins: Gullah Pioneers of the Civil Rights Era

Join us to hear a talk from the Reverend DeMett E. Jenkins about her grandfather, the late Esau Jenkins: a community activist, civil rights leader and businessman from John's Island. Mr. Jenkins started the influential Progressive Club and chartered the nonprofit, Sea Island Comprehensive Health Care Corporation. He worked closely with Septima P. Clark, as well as Dr. Martin Luther King. Collectively, the Gullah Geechee residents of Johns Island made notable contributions to the Civil Rights movement with their strategies for training teachers and organizing at the grassroots level.  

The contributions of Septima Clark and Esau Jenkins had an undeniable impact on the Civil Rights movement as well as Johns Island and surrounding Sea Island communities. Their efforts, in conjunction with the Highlander Folk School, raised literacy and increased the number of registered Black voters. Supported by cultural values and group cohesion, the strides made on Johns Island were directly responsible for similar movements and achievements, such as the development of citizenship schools, on both Edisto and Wadmalaw Island

In 2016, 60 descendants of Esau and Janie B. Jenkins traveled to the opening of the new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture which honors Mr. Jenkins in a permanent exhibition on the segregation era.  

Co-sponsored by the Charleston County Public Library and the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor Commission.

Reading Against Racism-Reparations

Reading Against Racism-Reparations

For our December meeting we will discuss the topic of reparations for slavery and the legacy of slavery. We will focus on an article, a video, and a new history book. 

The article is the much-cited Atlantic article by Ta-Nehisi Coates: The Case for Reparations which largely focuses on the debate about reparations for African Amercians: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2014/06/the-case-for-reparations/361631/.

The book is Reparations for Slavery and the Slave Trade: A Transnational and Comparative History by historian Ana Lucia Araujo: http://www.analuciaaraujo.org. Published in November 2017, this is the first book to offer a transnational narrative history of the financial, material, and symbolic reparations for slavery and the Atlantic slave trade. It leads to the present.

In the discussion of this event are links to a couple of videos as well as interviews, blog posts and other resources that inform the topic. One video in particular may be helpful to the discussion: As an accompaniment to this article, please also watch the video: What Would Reparations for African-Americans Actually Look Like in a Fair Economy? by organizer Ed Whitfield: http://www.yesmagazine.org/new-economy/video-what-would-reparations-for-african-americans-actually-look-like-in-a-fair-economy-20151110.

Education is a key part of becoming a more effective change agent and anti-racist advocate. Charleston's Reading Against Racism book group is a space to learn and raise consciousness. Join us, spread the word, and bring a friend.

Our meetings are open to everyone who wants to take action against racism and learn about how it functions. We meet on the 2nd Thursday of the month.

If you want to deepen your understanding of racial injustice, racial identity, and racism, and engage in meaningful conversations with others, please join us.

Bring that one guy from Chipotle you see but don't actually talk to although you're kinda friends from middle school but you've had a kind of awkward falling out because neither of you kept in touch but you're sure you could reconnect if you just spent time reacquainting with one another. 

Here's some info:

The event is FREE.
The theatre is located at 20 Queen St, Charleston, SC 29401.

Opening Reception for Southbound

Join us for the opening reception for "Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South." Celebrate the exhibition at the Halsey Institute from 6:30-8:00PM.

The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art is pleased to present our largest project to date, the exhibition "Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South." This unprecedented photography exhibition comprises fifty-six photographers’ visions of the South over the first decades of the twenty-first century. Accordingly, it offers a composite image of the region. The photographs echo stories told about the South as a bastion of tradition, as a region remade through Americanization and globalization, and as a land full of surprising realities. The project’s purpose is to investigate senses of place in the South that congeal, however fleetingly, in the spaces between the photographers’ looking, their images, and our own preexisting ideas about the region.

The exhibition will be on view simultaneously at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art and the City Gallery at Waterfront Park. A Brunch reception on Saturday, October 20 at 11:00AM will celebrate the exhibition’s opening at the City Gallery.

OneBeat at REDUX presented by MOJA Arts Festival

A neighborhood is a living organism: it breathes, struggles, and changes with the generations, and in an increasingly global world, the value of the neighborhood becomes ever more important, albeit more threatened. A neighborhood is the most literal form of “community” — a group of individuals who share a physical space, who must communicate their values, needs, and desires with one another, and who see each other’s lives unfold. Neighborhoods also have a distinct culture, and a history that tell us more about who we are, where we came from, and what we are capable of. This October, a group of musicians from around the globe visits one Charleston, SC neighborhood to learn about its history, its struggles and celebrations, and to collaborate with residents to create original art. 

An ensemble of global musicians from OneBeat will perform original musical works inspired by stories from residents and Tiny Businesses engaged in the conNECKtedTOO project of North Central Charleston neighborhood, in partnership with Charleston Rhizome Collective. A celebration of a neighborhood and its history, the evening will begin with a series of pop-up performances in local storefronts, culminating with a performance at Redux Contemporary Art Center at 7 pm.

This performance is funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the South Carolina Arts Commission.

Doug Jones 
Taylors SC troubadour who enjoys the craft of creating songs that have meaning and make people feel good. Doug Jones has been a performer on the Upstate music scene since he was a teenager. Jones is probably best known as the lead singer for Cravin’ Melon, a group that followed artists like Hootie & the Blowfish and Edwin McCain into the national spotlight in the 1990s. The band may not have scaled the same platinum heights as Hootie or McCain, but they built a fervent enough fan base with hummable, sunny pop-rock tunes — like the seemingly immortal “Sweet Tea” — that Jones has been able to make a living as a musician for a few decades now.

Forty Mile Detour
"Authentic.American.Music.”.....that is how founding member Mark Yampolsky describes the Forty Mile Detour sound. "It's Americana and draws from many American music styles, incorporating elements of blues, rock 'n' roll, folk and bluegrass." 
When Charleston South Carolina radio personality, Wolf of 105.5 FM The Bridge heard Forty Mile Detour for the first time he became an instant fan. “Outstanding,” he says of the band, “If you haven't seen them live you need to do yourself a favor and check them out. It's great Americana music. It's rock 'n' roll, blues and country all rolled up into one and it comes out sounding great.”
Forty Mile Detour has been performing their unique sound playing everywhere from craft beer houses to concert halls in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. “We love getting the opportunity to share our music” says Mark, “It is gratifying to see that our music is connecting with so many people.”
Forty Mile Detour plays their music from the heart, creating a sound that is true to the American spirit, the open road and the American dream. The band’s commitment to live performances continues to earn them many fans throughout the Lowcountry of South Carolina.

Wild Ponies
Although they're based in Nashville, Wild Ponies have always looked to Southwest Virginia — where bandmates Doug and Telisha Williams were both born and raised — for inspiration. There, in mountain towns like Galax, old-time American music continues to thrive, supported by a community of fiddlers, flat-pickers, and fans.
Wild Ponies pay tribute to that powerful music and rugged landscape with 2017's Galax, a stripped-back album that nods to the band's history while still pushing forward. Doug and Telisha took some of their favorite musicians from Nashville (Fats Kaplin, Will Kimbrough, Neilson Hubbard and Audrey Spillman) and met up with revered Old-Time players from Galax, Virginia (Snake Smith, Kyle Dean Smith, and Kilby Spencer). Recorded in the shed behind Doug’s old family farm in the Appalachians (steps away from the site where Doug and Telisha were married), it returns Wild Ponies to their musical and geographic roots. 
Growing up, a young Doug Williams spent many an hour watching and learning as his grandfather played banjo alongside local musical legends like Snake and Kyle Dean. Although both of his grandparents have now passed away, they would surely be proud to see Doug and Telisha gathered in the shed with Snake, Kyle Dean, Kilby, and a diverse handful of the best musicians from Nashville. The result is a broad, bold approach to Appalachian music, created by a multi-cultural band whose members span several generations.
