First Friday and more with Global Fayre
We’re getting excited; tomorrow is the First Friday Art Walk and also the start of a CRAZY weekend.
For First Friday we have the company again of the Bluetones Jazz Sextet. The guys made their debut performance in Springfield here at Global Fayre a few months ago, and got a great reception, so we’re really pleased to have them back again. The members of Bluetones are: Nick Rawlings on upright bass, Kurtis Foster on alto saxophone, Ian Roslawski on trumpet, Dugan Corsolini on trombone, Keith Haynes on guitar, and Austin Veteto on drums.Last time they played for a solid 4 hours and they are due to start right at 6pm this time around.
Then on Saturday and Sunday we have Art Fest on Walnut Street. The First Friday group has a booth at Art Fest this year, and we have a fantastic basket to raffle, stuffed with goodies from all the members of the group. When I last saw it, our estimate of its total value was way over $1,000! Proceeds from the raffle will go to Arts in Action, the 10 weeks festival currently underway in Springfield. Arts in Action is raising funds to benefit the Arts in Education Fund and the Care to Learn Fund. You can find out more at www.The10Weeks.com.
Finally on Sunday, Global Fayre will be teaming with Anna Sophia’s to hold our third Fair Trade Fayre at Christ Episcopal Church on East Walnut. The Fayre starts at 9 and finishes at 2pm. 10% of all proceeds will go to the Church’s outreach fund.
