Get Hip! The Steve Watson Trio with Jamey Wright at the Carolina Music Museum
Friday, April 26 at 7:30 PM
Pretty tough to find a better jazz guitarist anywhere than Greenville native, Steve Watson! Steve’s hip caused him to miss his slot in the Heritage Green Music Fall Season--thanks to his former student, Matt Dingledine, the show went on but, now, hip replaced--yeah, he’s hip again!--his trio, with Greg Alewine on base, Brendan Williamson on piano, with vocals by Jamey Wright will fill the Carolina Music Museum with jazz from the great American Songbook on Friday night, April 26 at 7:30. There was standing room only in the fall so get your tickets now ‘cause the 80 seats went quickly! So, call 864-520-8807 and reserve your seats now! $15 for adults, $5 for students! Sure, there’ll be beer, wine, popcorn and America’s music, Jazz!

Like so many others around the globe, we at the Carolina Music Museum are devastated by the tragic fire at Notre-Dame de Paris. While we relish the good news regarding the incredible survival of priceless objects and architecture, we await the fate of the Cathedral’s Great Organ.
Containing work spanning six centuries, the Great Organ was originally constructed below the Cathedral’s West Rose Window in 1403. The installation of this pipe organ was seen as an improvement over a smaller 14th century instrument located in the nave. In the 1730s, the Great Organ underwent a major reconstruction by famed French builder François Thierry, who greatly increased the capabilities of the instrument. The late eighteenth and early nineteenth century brought further modifications, culminating with the next large-scale restoration completed by Aristide Cavaillé-Coll in 1868. Today, the instrument has five keyboards, 115 stops, and 8,000 pipes - making it the largest in France.
Though the Great Organ appears unharmed, it is impossible to know the damage of smoke & water until it is examined by experts. Our thoughts are with @notredamedeparis

Coming soon to Carolina Music Museum, made in 1712 the English spinet by the master Stephen Keene & his partner, Charles Brackley, just out of apprenticeship. Likely Keene’s last spinet before he died, this one has been copied many hundreds of times from the drawing and book by John Barnes.

An Evening of Mandolin at the Carolina Music Museum
Thursday, April 11, 7:30

Bill Monroe, the father of bluegrass, made the mandolin the centerpiece of one of America’s most popular musical genres, so popular that many think the instrument came from the southern hills his music celebrated. Actually, it evolved from the lute family in Italy during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries where it was a classical musical instrument. If you haven’t heard the classical mandolin you owe it to yourself to experience the mind-bending talent of our guest musician, a world-renowned mandolin virtuoso, who will be performing at the Carolina Music Museum Thursday, April 11, at 7:30 PM. Oddly, our first reservation came from a Bill Monroe. Do you think? No, that’s impossible!

Call 864-520-8807 to purchase your tickets. $15 Adults & $5 Students.
