Sacred Steel Block Party, July 8th, 3-5 pm, outside Jalopy, Free!!!
We're back! This even was such a success last year that we are putting it on again!
What could be a better way to start the summer a free outdoor celebration of the sacred steel guitar featuring the legendary Calvin Cooke, festival favorite and co-producer Kashiah Hunter, and an all-star backing band!
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!
Date: July 8th, 3pm-5pm
Location: Right outside the Jalopy Theatre, 315 Columbia St., Brooklyn, NY, 11231

Thank you to the Brooklyn Arts Council for their generous support, for the fourth year in a row!
