Victoria Yards, 209 East 7th St., Charlotte, NC 28202
JazzArts is thrilled to present Robyn Springer and Dreamroot for its final concert at Victoria Yards! Robyn Springer has a versatile and sultry style known to transport audiences from church pews to Delta juke joints to downtown jazz cafes. We’ve enjoyed Springer a few times in the JAZZ ROOM, including the 2020 Holiday Edition and August 2019 Stevie Wonder tribute. Her latest album, The Acoustic Project, is an eclectic collaboration with guitarist and songwriter Greg Cagle.
Dreamroot, a Durham-based musical collective, combines pre-written and improvised sections, melding R&B forms with modern jazz solos. Dreamroot released their debut album Phases in May of 2020, hoping to put out positive energy during a dark time.
As an opener, JazzArts Youth All-Stars showcase the future stars of jazz right here in Charlotte. This group includes Gustavo Cruz, Samuel David, Trey Tarzia, Holland Majors & Olivia Ratliff.
Food trucks will be on hand for all of your refreshment needs while enjoying the music. You are welcome to bring your own food (please no glass or alcoholic beverages). Some chairs will be available – you are encouraged to bring your own if desired.
$20 in advance, $25 at the door
