Music and Art collaborate and combine to create an immersive, cultural experience at Rio Carrabelle. Rio Carrabelle is a unique non-profit art and music destination located in the heart of Carrabelle. Throughout January and February stellar music performances will be held in this historic building while surrounded by the gorgeous paintings and art of some gifted, local artists.
On Saturday, January 21 at 7:30 pm, the concert series will kick off with talented vocalist Avis Berry and a jazz quartet for Ballads & Bossa Nova. “Her smooth, sweet and soulful voice is a pleasure to listen to, and the pure joie de vivre she projects while singing is infectious…” according to Tallahassee Magazine. Avis Berry is the queen of vocalists in Tallahassee. She’s got the voice and the right attitude when she delivers a song. Rio is excited to have Avis returning to Carrabelle once again for what will be an outstanding performance.
The music series continues with the Brian Hall Trio bringing some fabulous Post Modern Jazz to Carrabelle on January 28. Then on Saturday, February 11 will be composer and vocalist, Darryl Tookes, returning from NYC. And rounding out the concert series will be Hot Mess providing some cool Blues & Zydeco on Saturday, February 25.
While being immersed in the sounds of these talented musical artists, guests will be surrounded by the works of a group of gifted visual artists.
