If you are fortunate enough to be in Charleston when there is a performance scheduled for the Sound of Charleston, do not miss this. I went on a whim, and it was one of the best things I did during my visit earlier this month (August 2017) to this charming city. It's a musical delight that features music related to Charleston from the earliest days to George Gershwin. Musicians apparently might be different during different performances, but I have a sense that they are all wonderful. During the performance I attended, I was spellbound by the music, including folksinger Bart Saylor on guitar and dulcimer; amazing singer Ann Caldwell singing spirituals (and involving the audience) like I have never heard before; and a rousing rendition of George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue by two pianists--including Ghadi Shayban--on the same piano.I was so delighted by the musicians that I purchased the CD, The Sound of Charleston. Also delightful is the venue, in the Circular Congregational Church in downtown Charleston. Although I was in Charleston on business, with a free evening, this event would be a delight for most.
