2017: a GREAT Sonic Pie Productions Year In Live Music

2017 has been a GREAT Sonic Pie Productions Year In Live Music. Here are some snapshots. Thank you to all our clients, production partners, artists, and audience members.

Don’t miss Texas blues/roots/country artist Charley Crockett at Motorco September 27

Charley Crockett. Up and coming Texas blues/country/honky tonk artist. First headlining show in Durham.  We’ve supported a lot of talent and we (our co-presenting sister Cicely Mitchell/So When Do I Clap?) see great potential in this band. If you like Gary Clark, Jr., you’re going to like this. You’re going to kick yourself if you don’t see them at this stage in their career, and we want Texas to know how much we love them–plus, Rissi Palmer Band opens! #TrustTheCurators #CheckThatTrumpet

Tickets to the show, Wednesday, September 27, are only $12 adv, $14 day of show. Nice early 7:30 p.m. curtain, and if you’ve never been to Motorco, it’s a one-story venue in downtown Durham, near Fullsteam. There’s room for both dancing in front of the stage and sitting, house left.

Rolling Stone named Crockett one of the “Best Things We Saw” at AmericanaFest in Nashville last week. His brand new album is called “Little G.L.’s Honky Tonk Jubilee” but here’s the title track from his last album, “In The Night.” See you at the show!

Threads of Africa at NC Museum of Art

To conclude their Threads of Africa celebration and the 20th anniversary summer concert series, the North Carolina Museum of Art presents a free concert by Angélique Kidjo with Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba, hailed by Time magazine as “Africa’s premier diva.” Kidjo blends the West African traditions of her childhood in Benin with elements of American R&B, funk, and jazz, as well as influences from Europe and Latin America. A three-time Grammy winner, Kidjo is admired throughout the world.

Opening for Angélique Kidjo is Diali Cissokho, a griot born to a family of professional musicians in Senegal, who currently makes his home in North Carolina. Cissokho is a master of the kora, a traditional West African instrument with strings and a skin-and-gourd resonator. Cissokho and his band Kaira Ba have created an electrifying style of West African dance music that has attracted a fervent following.
