[email protected] Albans – Robin Bullock

June 26 @ 2:00 p.m.

St. Alban’s Episcopal Church

At 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 26, Music at St. Alban’s ([email protected]) will conclude its season with a performance by Robin Bullock, generally considered one of the preeminent acoustic masters of our time. He has been hailed as the “Celtic guitar god” who delights audiences with programs featuring Celtic and classical music for mandolin and guitar. With virtuosity he blends melodies of the Celtic lands, their American descendants, and masterworks of the Renaissance and Baroque eras into a persuasive musical vision. The concert will be preceded at 2:00 p.m. by an interview with the artist under the aegis of DavidsonLearns and followed by a meet-the-artist reception. The concert will be available via live streaming. For information about that option and latest COVID protocols, visit [email protected]’s website: www.musicatstalbansdavidson.org. This event is made possible, in part, with funding from the ASC and support from WDAV. [email protected] is a 501[c]3 non-profit organization.

Secret Society of Crafters – Hearts on Fiber

June 29 @ 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 a.m. weather permitting. We hope to see you there!
