Wednesdays at 1 p.m. September - November 12
The Fall season's presentation will be “Gullah Tings fa Tink Bout.” Ron Daise, Vice President for Creative Education, will perform a concert of songs and readings from his CD of the same title. Through a musical journey of rich imagery and evocative rhythms and instrumentation, viewers celebrate Gullah Geechee culture in the genres of traditional spiritual, blues, gospel stomp and clap, Gullah Geechee/West African pop, and a Gullah Geechee/West African/Caribbean blend. Themes highlighted are African Diaspora; the common cultural connections of food ways, language, rice heritage, crafts, music; the tragedy of enslavement; the importance of family; and the resilience of survival. Programs in the Wall Lowcountry Center Auditorium and are free with garden admission.
