A big thank you to everyone who joined us at Saturday night’s concert. It was amazing to have DuneGrass, Della Mae, and guest artist Clinton Curtis all on stage during an amazing night of bluegrass music.
Since its start in the 1940s, bluegrass has taken three distinct cultural music forms—gospel blues, jazz, and Scotch-Irish fiddle music—and melded them together into a uniquely American artform.
In a similar way, Sylvester Manor has served as a melting pot in which the traditions and technologies of the many people who have worked and lived on this historic plantation have combined in unexpected ways.
We’re continuing that tradition of interaction at the Manor today—working to preserve, cultivate, and share a culture that links history, a sense of place, and art in everyday life.
This concert is one small part of that effort, and we hope to see you all again soon at our next event!
