Due South weaves together the richness of sights, sounds and tastes of the South to create an engaging tapestry of artistic expression in the heart of charming Thomasville, Georgia.
On April 21, Due South presents Rhythm & Roots – an intimate evening of acoustic music hosted by singer-songwriter Verlon Thompson. Then, on April 22, the Due South main concert features Texas singer/songwriter Charlie Robison, along with Asheville-based Americana/roots band Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters along with Jon Bellamy & The Rebels.
Due South also partners with Music Maker Relief Foundation to present the exhibition, We Are the Music Makers!, from April 1 – 30 at Studio 209, with an opening reception on April 6. The exhibition features photo and audio documentation of Southern Roots musicians active in the past 20 years, all photographed and recorded by Tim Duffy in his quest to preserve Southern traditional music by partnering with the artists who make it. The multi-media materials highlight questions of how poverty, geography and age have limited the exposure of these artists, causing the widespread idea that the musical traditions they perform have “died out.”
Due South is presented by Thomasville Center for the Arts and Thomasville National Bank.
