A Creative Art STUDIO has a fun evening planned for First Friday Denton. Be sure and head that way September 5, 7 – 10 pm. Their music is kicked at 7 pm by local singer songwriter Rachel Yeatts. Her music has been described as a mix between Hank Williams and Emmylou Harris and she has recently released her first CD, Paradise Mountain, a compilation of original songs written and sung by Ms. Yeatts.
Following Rachel, Oui Bis, a local group of musicians comprised of Steve Prouty, Leon Peek, George Merritt, Maristella Feustle, Allison Cami and Steve Horn, takes the stage. This group features a variety of styles of music including the American Old Time tradition as well as Irish, Scottish and English folk dance music. Their performance will include a mix of Old Standards (that is to say jazz from the early to mid 20th century), Latin American jazz tunes of various sorts, Balkan and Slavic tunes and a handful of original tunes that might lean heavily on all of the above.
This month Daren Fagan, metal artist, and Tina Alvarez, photographer and painter will be on hand to demonstrate art techniques. Daren has planned a make and take using metal. Bailey Parrish, the dollar a minute sketch artist will be on hand to do sketch portraits. You can also join in the creating of the community painting. Grab a friend and come join the fun.
