SAN ANTONIO (December 21, 2017)- The Renaissance Guild returns to The Carver Friday, January 12 to Sunday, January 21 in the final installation of their famed Eastwood trilogy. “The Eastwood Project: A Blues Continuum” celebrates the music, artists and history that filled the Eastwood Country Club; a legendary East Side establishment that was an active venue on the famed Chitlin’ Circuit. The Eastwood Country Club is a cherished memory for many in the San Antonio community but it is also a symbol of the many venues that created the Chitlin’ Circuit, the Juke Joints, shanties, barns and hastily constructed spaces that existed as early as the 19th century which preserved the music and recorded the journey of a people over the rugged terrain of America.
“A Blues Continuum” under the direction of Ms. Danielle King, with musical direction by Mr. Darrin Newhardt, reflects on the significance of such venues that brought important and popular Black entertainment to an integrated audience. It belongs to the long tradition of Black San Antonio entertainment venues which included the Carver Library Auditorium (currently The Carver) and the Keyhole Club.
Join The Renaissance Guild as they present their original musical revue at the Little Carver Civic Center (226 N. Hackberry).
