Worldwide Photo Walk in Beaufort: On Saturday, October 11, photographers will gather in cities across the globe to capture a slice of life through their eyes during the 7th Annual Worldwide Photo Walk. It’s the world’s largest global social photography event in the history of photography itself.  Photographers of all walks of life and skill levels gather together, on the same day to socialize, learn new tips from each other, and explore their corner of the world through photography.  Last year over 1,300 walks took place in countries like the Philippines, Iran, India, Great Britain and the United States.  The Beaufort walk will start at the foot of the Woods Bridge (Beaufort Side) and will photograph in The Point from 9 to 11 a.m.  Participation is free.  Just register at http://kelbyone.com/photowalk/walk/beaufort-sc-united-states-the-point.   Participants are also eligible to win prizes from the Worldwide Photo Walk’s sponsors if their photo is chosen as the best photo of the day by their walk leader. Each winning walk photo is then entered into a global competition where Scott Kelby picks the single “best photo” of the event along with 10 runners-up. Please contact Sandy Dimke, Beaufort walk leader, for more information at dimke@hargray.com.

Craig Butterfield & Bert Ligon Jazz at Fripp:

Fripp Island Friends of Music opens its 31st season of bringing music to the Sea Islands with an impressive jazz duo.  The very best of the uniquely American musical idiom we call “jazz” is exemplified in spades by Bert Ligon and Craig Butterfield. Craig Butterfield makes his double bass dance and sing as seldom seen or heard. He’s as much magician as musician. Craig shares the stage with Bert Ligon, celebrated not only for his remarkable piano skills but as the authoritative writer of several standard references on jazz theory and technique. This means the lucky Fripp audience will experience jazz as it was meant to be played. The concert will be held Sunday, October 26 at 5 p.m. at the Fripp Island Community Center, 205 Tarpon Boulevard, Fripp Island, SC, 29920. Tickets at the door: Adults $25 per person/$10 for students. All attendees get a free pass at the Fripp Gate and are invited to join the artists at an included catered event following the performance. http://www.islc.net/friendsofmusic/
