Groundhog Concert: Resound Mag Review

Screen Shot 2014-02-11 at 6.19.44 PM

To me, the words “benefit” at a “music hall” implies stiffness, fancy evening wear, and music that everyone expects to hear and has heard before. That’s not the kind of show the Charleston Music Hall puts on, though, and it wasn’t that kind of benefit. The music played at the Groundhog Day Benefit concert was much like the city of Charleston itself—southern, surprising and unlike any other.

Groundhog Concert: Art Mag Review

I was in awe again at the Charleston Music Hall Saturday night as Bill Carson led us into a wonderland of aural bliss. He and a mind-boggling group of minstrels played hours of music that was carefully curated, composed, and polished to perfection, in honor of the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art‘s 30th anniversary.
