YES! Weekly sponsors Gritty Blues at Greensboro Farmers Curb Market with The Piedmont Blues Preservation Society, Saturday April 25, 2015

"Greensboro Farmers Curb Market, 501 Yanceyville St., will host "Gritty Blues”, April 25, 2015 from 8-11:30 am, an event honoring southern favorites staples, grits with a side of blues!  YES! Weekly is a sponsor of the event. We will serve Old Mill of Guilford Grits with a variety of savory and sweet toppings from market vendors including shrimp from  George Smith's NC Seafood, bacon, sausages, kale, scallions, spring onions, butter, cheese, garlic scapes, and honey.  Tracy Lamothe, owner of Blue Spoon Cooking School, will be the guest chef for the day.   

Enjoy the sounds of Peter May, Piedmont Blues Preservation Society’s 2014 Solo Blues Challenge winner who takes the stage from 9:30 am - 11:30 am.

The cost of the event is $5.00 per bowl with proceeds benefiting Greensboro Farmers Curb Market.  Bring a blanket or lawn chair and spend the morning at the Market!  

Peter May, the son of a Dixieland-style, trumpet-blaring preacher and a hymn-singing, piano-playing teacher, plays original and classic blues, and gospel. Emphasis is on his North Carolina Piedmont style.  Trips to the Delta literally and metaphorically, infuse his personal style with an edge of raw desolation. His classically trained hands mete out precise fingerstyle blues, while his voice belts out something between a holler and a howl.

Gritty Blues is a collaboration to help raise awareness of local foods and music in our area.
