You won’t want to miss this–a free outdoor celebration of the sacred steel guitar featuring the legendary Calvin Cooke
, festival favorite Kashiah Hunter
, and future star Terrell King
Location: Right OUTSIDE the Jalopy Theatre, 315 Columbia St., Brooklyn, NY, 11231, AS A PART OF OPEN STREETS NYC
We are so excited to be putting on a live show after two years of virtual events, and we couldn’t think of a more fitting or joyful way than this to return to the Jalopy Theatre. For those who aren’t familiar with it, sacred steel is a genre that developed in Black churches in the Southeastern United States. Sacred steel players have a unique ability to make their instruments “sing,” and their entire performance is geared towards raising a spirit of joy and community in the audience. It’s the perfect energy for a Brooklyn summer block party, and it’s free!
Made possible in part by the Department of Transportation, Open Streets NYC, The New York State Council on the Arts, & the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
Produced by Raphael McGregor and Kashiah Hunter
