REBEKAH TODD – Facebook Livestream from The Clayton Center
Aug 12 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Rebekah Todd grew up in Benson, surrounded by music. Her father, a musician himself, flooded the house with sounds of classic rock and folk, playing everything from Pink Floyd to the Righteous Brothers. This led Rebekah to instantly find her musical niche somewhere between melodic soul and alternative folk rock.

With her soulful voice and musical style, Rebekah pulls inspiration from a wide range of musical genres. She cites singer/songwriters like Lauryn Hill and Susan Tedeschi as her inspiration and credits them for shaping the music she writes and performs today.

Currently based in Wilmington, NC, Rebekah has several releases under her belt — Forget Me Not (2011), Roots Bury Deep (2014), and most recently Crooked Lines (2017). Rebekah and her band, Rebekah Todd & The Odyssey, won the On The Rise series for FloydFest 2016.

The one-hour livestream concert is free, but you can help support Rebekha and the band with a donation to their virtual tip jar during the show. Set a reminder and join us on Facebook Live at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, August 12.

DIALI CISSOKHO & KAIRA BA – Livestream from The Clayton Center
Aug 26 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

For the past decade, kora player and singer Diali Cissokho has called North Carolina home. Hailing from a long line of Senegalese musicians and storytellers known as griots, Cissokho made the transatlantic move to Pittsboro with his wife almost 10 years ago.

Shortly after he settled in North Caroline, Diali formed the band Kaira Ba with the aid of native Piedmont musicians John Westmoreland, Jonathan Henderson, Austin McCal, and Will Ridenour. Together, they blend the traditions and rhythms of West African music with subtle timbres of the American South.

While comparison has been drawn to other notable Senegalese griots, such as Baaba Maal or Youssou N’Dour, the fusion of polyrhythmic percussion, plucky electric guitars, and sprinkles of pedal steel and electric organs makes for a much more individualistic, accessible sound. In essence,Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba makes dance music that bridges the continental divide.  Sam Haw, Indyweek
