New Harmonies series continues

Although the New Harmonies exhibit must soon be packed and sent away, it's still on display through Fri., Feb. 4th. If you haven't seen it yet, please do drop by. The exhibit is open when the Beaufort Branch Library is open for business. Who knows when Beaufort County Library will be awarded another such fine exhibit to share with our community?!

In February we have two New Harmonies/Local History related programs for your listening, learning, and entertainment!

Wed., February 1st Lunch & Listen: Livin' Music: A Gullah/Geechee Journey of Harmony featuring Queen Quet Noon to 1 p.m. at Technical College of the Lowcountry, Beaufort Campus

Saturday, February 4th Closing Celebration with Aunt Pearlie Sue 2 p.m. at Beaufort Branch Library Anita Singleton-Prather “Aunt Pearlie Sue” delights audiences with Gullah-flavored folktales, songs, skits and history passed down to her.

"Celebration of American Music," a display of photographic work by members of the Photography Club of Beaufort, will be taken down at the end of this month. If you haven't seen it, do make an effort to see it before January 30th. It's a wonderful exhibit of local talent.

For questions regarding New Harmonies events, please contact Amanda Brewer, at or (843) 255-6458.

We hope to see you at one (or more) of these very special opportunities to celebrate the "Roots of American Music" in concert with the Beaufort County Library system!
