Porto Seguro and Brazil Fest Porto Seguro partnered with Capoeira Charleston and the Caribbean Creole Food Truck to stage Brazil Fest at the Hungry Monk Music Studio in West Ashley. The evening was a fun mix of music, capoeira, drum lines, food and merriment.  Audience comments reflect the fun time that was had by all:  “best night of live music I have enjoyed in years” “they were great” “It was a great evening! Even my grandson was impressed.” “This was so much fun! Great job”  
Good Foot Plays Celtic Night at Charleston Music Hall Good Foot’s set for Celtic Night at the Charleston Music Hall (sponsored by the College of Charleston) provided a high energy start to the evening. The band played a mix of traditional and original tunes and songs that showcased each of the three players. The evening continued with sets by Hungry Monks and Castle Crossing and ended with a fun, upbeat grand finale that included all the night’s participants. Good Foot is headed into the recording studio in June -- watch for more news here!

Duo Dos - flute and guitar duet Duo dos is Susan on flutes with Tom Noren on seven string guitar.  The two started this new venture in order to provide a portable subset of thier quartet, Porto Seguro.  Their repertoire includes Brazilian choro and light jazz from early to mid 20th century, originals and classical standards.  Both classically trained at the New England Conservatory in Boston, they have branched out to include music that digs into their roots. Noren grew up in Rio steeped in their rich musical traditions.  Conant has life-long ties to the Contra, English and Scottish dance communities.  Duo Dos’ carefully crafted music is perfect for intimate concerts, social functions and gatherings. Samples and photos coming soon.
