Paul Geremia has been playing his brand of blues music since the early 1970’s; he was nominated for a Grammy in 2003. Paul plays both his own originals and traditional blues standards. On the April 28 2013, he will be inducted into the Rhode Island music hall of fame.
Destination Soups was launched in 2008 by Devin Byrnes, who bases the menu on all fresh ingredients and homemade comfort cuisine he learned while cooking in New Bedford back in the 90s and later in New York City. Byrnes was able to expand to a bigger and better location right up the road following the continued success of his first location in the historic section of downtown New Bedford, while giving back to our local community through fundraising and multiple charities.
Linda Monchik of Fall River will direct William Inge’s “Glory in the Flower”. Suzanne Bergeron of New Bedford will direct Glenn Hughes’ “Red Carnations”.
The ensemble performs original compositions by the saxophonist/leader. Many of these works are expansive narrative suites that explore rich layers of rhythmic and harmonic complexity, adapting elements from world music traditions, and drawing on the improvisational voices of the group’s members.
Come listen to three authors discuss what they wrote, why they wrote it, and how they chose their respective subjects at “First Person, Second Story,” presented by AHA! at Cork in downtown New Bedford on April 25 from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
