Music is a mainstay in African American culture. From the banjo to African Griots to work songs that lifted our spirits, music gave us hope and kept us sane since landing in America. This program will entertain and remind us that so much of America’s music is tied to that of migrating African Americans.
PRESENTER: DICK KNIGHT & COMPANY shares music of southerners who escaped the violence and injustices of the South to forge better lives and lasting careers by migrating from the South. These people became the backbone of American Music. Come enjoy performances of songs by a few of those great artists such as W. C. Hendy’s “Memphis Blues;” Wilbert Harris’s “Going to Kansas City;” Huddie Lead Belly’s “Midnight Special;” Bessie Smith’s “Give Me A Pig Foot and a Bottle of Beer;” Muddy Waters’s “Got my Mojo Working;” Nina Simone’s “Trouble-in-Mind;” and more.

Brooke McBride is a 26 year-old singer/songwriter that prides herself in writing and singing “no fluff,” “no filler” just real, raw, country music. While originally hailing from the Tar-heel State of North Carolina, Brooke made the move to Nashville, Tennessee in January 2013. Originally a student of the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, she transferred to Belmont University and received a B.B.A. in Music Business in May of 2014. Brooke is a 2013 Carolina Music award nominee for Best Female Country Artist, has been a featured extra on the hit television series “Nashville,” and was part of a CMA Promo Commercial for the 2013 CMA Awards in Nashville. Immediately after graduating from Belmont University in 2014, Brooke released her debut EP, aptly titled, “Songs About Carolina.” She and her band then hit the road touring everywhere from Massachusetts to Montana.
In 2016 she released the single, “Can’t Get Away,” which is a song about the differences (and similarities) of the demons and obstacles faced on and off the road. In 2019, she is set to release her most recent project, a five song EP entitled, Coming Clean.
Brooke plays an average of 100 shows per year ranging from honky tonks, festivals, corporate events, clubs, theatres, private events, radio shows, etc. Brooke’s usual set includes both originals and covers with covers ranging from Johnny Cash to Cee Lo Green. Described as “raw”, “sultry”, and “smokey/southern” no matter what your taste, Brooke’s unique voice and storytelling ability are sure to keep you entertained all night long.
