A free evening with Heritage pioneers
Nashville's in the house! The foot-stomping spot on Friday night will be the Music Center at Strathmore, where the 2010 National Endowment for the Arts Heritage Fellows will perform and talk. Del McCoury, the bluegrass legend, will bring his 50 years of guitar playing to the stage. The concert, starting at 8 p.m. and emceed by Nick Spitzer, host of public radio's American Routes, will include Yacub Addy, a Ghanaian drum master, Jim "Texas Shorty" Chancellor, the Texas fiddler, and Mike Rafferty, an Irish flute player. If you can't make it up Rockvile Pike, the NEA is offering a live webcast and instructions will be posted Friday afternoon at arts.gov.
