The Martha Bassett Show: Live at Tanglewood Park 



The Martha Bassett Show: Live at Tanglewood Park 

Arts Council presents free outdoor concert on Sunday, June 16 


Winston-Salem, NC (May 22, 2024) – Arts Council of Winston-Salem & Forsyth County presents the second event in their 9th Annual Parks Concert Series with The Martha Bassett Show: Live at Tanglewood Park on Sunday, June 16 from 2-5pm. The concert series, presented in partnership with Forsyth County Government, provides free, family-friendly concerts showcasing local and national musicians in beautiful outdoor venues. 


The June 16 concert features The Martha Bassett Show, a weekly music program (usually recorded at the historic Reeves Theater in Elkin, NC) that blends the fabric of the national roots and Americana scene with the rich artistry, history, and flair of North Carolina’s Piedmont region. Helmed by one of the state’s most distinguished musicians, the live show features national artists, fresh local faces, and the music of Martha Bassett. Each show is a collaboration in song and conversation between Martha, her band, and the guests. 

 

The concert takes place on Father’s Day, and the line-up of guest musicians including Sonny Miles (a multi-instrumentalist with gospel, funk, and neo-soul influences), The Onyx Club Boys (a gypsy jazz group from Chapel Hill), and Dori Freeman (an Appalachian singer-songwriter) promises an unforgettable afternoon.  


The Martha Bassett Show: Live at Tanglewood Park takes place at the Tanglewood Park Band Shell (4061 Clemmons Rd, Clemmons, NC). Free parking is available adjacent to the band shell. Gates open at 1pm; the concert will be 2-5pm. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs, and may bring a picnic or purchase food from vendors onsite. Wine, beer, and water will be available for purchase, with all proceeds supporting Arts Council. No outside alcohol is permitted. Kids of all ages are invited to participate in family-friendly arts activities sponsored by Publix Charities. Dogs on leashes are welcome.

  

In the event of inclement weather, the concert will take place at Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts (251 N Spruce Street, Winston-Salem). Check Arts Council’s website and social media for day-of venue updates.
