Looking Forward to A “Slam”-ing Saturday!

February 3, 2011

Birthed from the concept of bringing together the unique format of a poetry slam with local musical talent, the Winston-Salem Shuffle will be hosted at SECCA this Saturday! Check out our events page for more information about ticketing and while you’re there you can also learn more about the first of our Crossroads Concert Series with artist/singer/songwriter Jim White and the Americana/Blues/Folk trio the South Memphis String Band.

I’ve always felt a deep connection with music, whether listening to my dad playing the blues on a hot summer evening or attending music festivals and outdoor “jam sessions” growing up. I am really excited to learn (and hear) more about the music scene here in Winston-Salem and I think that the Shuffle will be a great opportunity to see the “best of the best” in local talent. I’m also looking forward to learning more about the technical aspects that go into producing such a different and diverse event. In the past few weeks I’ve had the opportunity to learn some of the (very) basic techniques of running the sound and light systems in our McChesney Scott Dunn Auditorium, which has been challenging in the most positive way possible. Our collaboration with the Wake Forest Theatre Department in presenting “The Key Said Run and The Door Said Fly” gave me the opportunity to see all our technology in action and I’m really excited to see how everything will translate for the concert/competition this Saturday.  Hope to see you there!
