Gabriela La Foley with Derrick Kirkman
Gabriela la Foley with Derrick Kirkman
Doodad Farm (4701 Land Rd. Greensboro)
Thursday Nov. 10 6:30-9:30 p.m.
“We happened to catch Gabriela la Foley performing recently and just HAD to pull her in for a show at Doodad Farm! Based in England, she’s currently doing a tour of North Carolina, cheering up us Yankees with her ukulele and her sunny disposition. She’s a blast! We know this is short notice, but we don’t know when or if Gabby will be back in the area, and we want to share this British treasure with everyone!
Gabriela la Foley has a huge repertoire of great, classic songs from the 1920s and 1930s, and she plays them with joyous perfection. Many of these songs will have you singing along, and some you maybe haven’t heard. Regardless, she’ll put a smile on your face.
Derrick Kirkman, who will open the show, is a singer-songwriter based in Climax, NC. His haunting songs tell stories, some true, some not so true, but all spellbinding and performed with passion.
POTLUCK: No obligation to participate, but if you want to bring a dish to share, please do. Let’s show Gabby how we Carolinians cook! We’ll provide the plates, cups, utensils, etc. You’re welcome to bring beverages of your choice whether you do the potluck or not.
DONATIONS: We’re asking folks to donate $8-$10 for this show. As always at Doodad Farm, every cent of your donations goes straight to the musicians.
THIS SHOW IS IN THE FARMHOUSE, so it will happen rain or shine. We can only seat about 70 people, so please only sign up as “GOING” if you’re pretty sure you’re serious. If you change your mind, please change your status to reflect it.” – via Facebook

Winston Salem’s own Chris Murrell seems to travel at the speed of light, traversing the globe non-stop since 1991. His career reads like one huge highlight reel; winning a Grammy® with the World Famous Count Basie Orchestra (1997), gracing the stages of every major concert hall, festival and club in the world – multiple times! Audiences with royalty and heads of state were frequent and well received. Few singers are as extensively traveled as Chris and you definitely enjoy hearing his truly unique voice in this cozy, and intimate setting!” – via Facebook
