Last Fridays Free Concert Series & Proclamation to Heather Delisle: 5/25
Join us at the Historic Orange County Courthouse lawn with The Adrian Duke Project Featuring Theresa Richmond ! Adrian plays piano in the New Orleans musical tradition of Professor Longhair, James Booker & Dr. John. His voice is infused with a startling imprint of Ray Charles. Adrian and Theresa met in Durham not far from the rural parts of the state where she grew up singing in the church. Adrian's New Orleans blues and Theresa's southern gospel roots make the duo a natural fit. Join us every Last Friday through September. Learn more here .
In addition, the Hillsborough Arts Council invites members of the arts community and general public to support and thank Heather Delisle for her 14 years of service to the Hillsborough Arts Council.
