"On Aug. 9, 4th Street in downtown Winston-Salem will host another monthly Second Sundays on 4th event. This FREE family-friendly outdoor event series, every second Sunday of the month from May to October from 3-6 pm, is presented by Flow Automotive and supported by a number of other local sponsors. Each event includes two free bands, as well as a kids’ zone (sponsored by Summit School) with free bounce houses, crafts and games. We also feature different local non-profits at each event. The events are on 4th Street between Cherry and Marshall Streets, and thanks to First Presbyterian Church there will be free parking during each of the SSO4 events in any of the nearby First Presbyterian parking lots. In conjunction with Second Sundays, a/perture cinemas will be showing a special series of vintage cartoons at 2pm on those dates (movies $5).
On stage, our Aug. 9 SSO4 opens at 3pm with Laila Nur, a self-taught singer-songwriter who is one of North Carolina’s most exciting emerging artists, with her inventive approach to folk, funk, soul, and blues.
Diali Cissokho and Kaira Ba, our August headliner, is a Senegalese singer who combines the centuries-old musical culture of his “griot” ancestors with elements of blues and rock & roll. Diali’s electrifying voice and serpentine guitar work propel songs old and new about timeless themes of mythology, migration and universal love.
Our Non-Profit of the Month is The Olio, an arts program featuring the first glassblowing studio in Winston-Salem and an apprentice program for local youth.
