Folk Music Concert: Del Rey

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Enjoy a free folk music concert by Del Rey. Del Rey started playing guitar when she was four. At the age of 14, she was introduced to the world of traditional acoustic music and recordings, especially those of the great blues guitarist Memphis Minnie. Her guitar playing is influenced by country blues, stride piano, classic jazz and hillbilly boogie-all filtered through the sensibility of an autodidact trailor-park aesthete.
