CULTURE OF FOLK FOCUS OF HCC PERFORMANCES

BRIDGEPORT – The Culture of Folk will be spotlighted Thursday, Oct. 15 when the bluegrass group Hoe makes a two-part appearance at Housatonic Community College. Joining the group will be HCC student Katie Wilson of Trumbull, who just released her first CD.

The performers will explore the culture of American folk music from both a cultural and thematic standpoint.  They will conduct a workshop with HCC Theater Arts students from 2 to 3:15 p.m., when the group and the students will develop a performance piece.

At 7 p.m., the piece developed in the workshop will be performed and the Wilson and the group will give a solo performance.  Both events will be held in the Performing Arts Center in Lafayette Hall.

The events, which are free and open to the public, are being held as part of the college’s Third Thursday Cultural Celebration series. During most months in the academic year, a performing artist representing a specific culture comes to the college on the third Thursday to develop and perform a piece with Theater Arts students and give a solo performance.  

The college is located at 900 Lafayette Blvd, Bridgeport, less than 150 yards off I-95 (Exit 27) and Rte, 8 (Exit 1) in downtown Bridgeport, a block from the Arena at Harbor Yard. For more information, contact Prof. Geoffrey Sheehan at 203-332-5270.
