The Piedmont Blues Preservation Society also announces its anticipation of the POP! Downtown Greensboro series of temporary Art installations to appear in un-occupied storefront windows from mid-March to the end of May 2014. Downtown Greensboro, Inc., in collaboration with Open Art Society (OAS) will feature up to 10 artists from around the region responding to the theme “BLUES.”
The blues theme came to be as OAS recognized that iconic musicians developed the Piedmont Blues style right in our “backyard”, a sound that took hold in the south and influenced music around the world. The project will also celebrate the Carolina Blues Festival produced by Piedmont Blues Preservation Society held May 17, 2014.
The Piedmont Blues Preservation Society (PBPS) is excited to announce a partial lineup of acts secured for the 28th Annual Carolina Blues Festival in association with YES! Weekly, being held under the big tent at Festival Park in downtown Greensboro, NC, May 17, 2014. We’re also going to take it ONE STEP FURTHER, we’re working on events to happen during the week of May 11. (See below)
