Noel Freidline Jazz Trio

Feb 18 @ 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Location: Gethsemane Baptist Church

Music at St Alban’s ([email protected]) and Gethsemane Baptist Church will sponsor a free jazz concert at Gethsemane Church (565 Jetton Street, Davidson). The Noel Freidline Trio will perform “A Tribute to the Great Pianists –[Dave] Brubeck, [George] Shearing, and [Ahmad] Jamal,” each of whom created a sound distinctly his own. With Zack Page on drums and Rick Dior on drums, Freidline on piano is a master interpreter of these legends. One can easily hear their influence in his playing of many of their well-known creations, such as “Take Five” and “Early Autumn”.

All attending this free live concert are expected to wear masks and to “social distance” to the extent possible. Information about any changes to these plans is available at [email protected]’s website: www.musicatstalbansdavidson.org. This event is made possible, in part, with funding from the ASC.

Secret Society of Crafters – Hearts on Fiber

Feb 20 @ 10:00 a.m.

208 South Main Street

Crafting is more fun with other people, which is why we created the “Secret” Society of Crafters. The title says “secret,” but we’re a not-so-secret, not-so-exclusive group who meets to stitch, craft, crochet, knit, sit and talk. We may or may not talk about knitting, yarn bombing, hand dying, or the latest stitch. We may even talk about world domination. You won’t know unless you come. Connect with crafters in the area, find the motivation to pick up that project again, and benefit from the wisdom of a passionate crafting group. The “Secret” Society of Crafters meets outside the store every Wednesday and Sunday at 10:00 AM weather permitting. We hope to see you there!
