Lunch & Listen series lead-in to New Harmonies Exhibit

Amanda Brewer, Beaufort Branch Library, has put together a musical Lunch & Listen series as a lead-in to the arrival of the Smithsonian's New Harmonies exhibit in December.

She's a guitarist herself and it appears that she just might have called in a few favors from her performer friends to set up the free noontime concerts for the community.

Mon., Sept. 26th - Laura Lee Rose and Friends - Civil War and Folk Tunes
Mon., Oct. 10th - Craig Washington - Jazz on Electric Guitar
Mon., Oct. 24th - Kirk Dempsey - Blues on harmonica and guitar
Mon., Nov. 14th - Chris Jones - History of Blues guitar from the mid 1930s to present day.
Mon., Dec. 12th - Chris Jones - High energy performance showcasing guitar playing styles of iconic guitar players

Bring your lunch to the USC-Beaufort Center for the Arts auditorium on the historic Beaufort campus, 801 Carteret Street, and enjoy the music of Beaufort’s local musicians this fall through Lunch & Listen, a music series brought to you by the Beaufort Branch Library and the University of South Carolina Beaufort Center for the Arts.

These one hour lunchtime music performances are free, and open to all who are interested in enjoying music by local performers! The series is free and open to the public with doors opening at 11:30 am. and performances running from Noon to 1 p.m. Bring a lunch or purchase one at Outtakes Cafe next door to the Performing Arts Center.
