Fayetteville North Carolina Blues Update

From Claudia

Hello, dear Friends and Supporters of Local Music and the Arts!


The year is going by fast and fall is in the air. The Blues is an all weather friend and and we have again produced a series of the finest Blues Shows in the area. HQ Library has proven itself to be the perfect venue for the purpose of show casing local talent to a broader segment of our community. Fayetteville's hottest professional Elite Performers have tirelessly and selflessly provided their time, talent AND equipment to make these awesome community shows an annual reoccurence.
We have chosen the Blues and american roots music and mainly original materials to be performed at these shows. Younger and younger performers have joined the ranks of seasoned veterans and have graced the Pate Room Stage for 5 years now. Our youngest performer ever , 12 year old " Lakota" John Locklear recently delighted the masses with his soulful playing and performances of the Blues. The Locklear Family is the newest addition to our " Blues Gang" and we welcome them!
Thanks to our local media, namely the Fayetteville Obsever Times and NEXT! magazine have supported us from the start with intense coverage of all our events and the recent edition of NEXT! with a detailed article about the purpose of these events.
Fayetteville's Musicians have never gotten the recognition they deserve and are usually relegated to side stages and non paying short performances. There needs to be much more involvement from the community itself to help us to promote these local artists to their fullest recognition and potential.
The following events will be held and are tentatively scheduled:
