Street Music on Paris Avenue is a free concert series that is a gift from the Town of Port Royal, produced by ARTworks, the arts council of Beaufort, Port Royal and the Sea Islands. At 6:30 p.m., Saturday, June 29, Angela Easterling and the Beguilers will perform. “Innocence and clarity so fresh as to be dangerous,” according to Maverick.
Angela Easterling is a farm-raised, South Carolina-bred, All-American girl; her country roots run deep, and her music carries the flavor of her distinctly American culture and upbringing. So why would she do an album of original songs in French? Angela’s answer, “Why not?” she laughs. Why not, indeed, when the result speaks for itself: a combination of sweet southern Americana music and the lovely, romantic language spoken along The Seine, coming together to create something truly unique and unexpected. In addition to awards, her music has been featured in commercials and Animal Planet, and the Smithsonian Institution’s exhibit “New Harmonies: Celebrating American Root’s Music.” Bring your chairs and dancing shoes. The rain location is The Shed in Old Village Port Royal. For more, contact ARTworks at 843-279-2787, www.ArtWorksInBeaufort.org.
