Event Description

The Marcus Shelby Quartet performs "Harriet Tubman & the Songs of Freedom" May

"Harriet Tubman and the Songs of Freedom" will be performed by the Marcus Shelby Quartet on Saturday, May 20 at 7pm at Layton's Chance Winery – just a few miles from where Tubman once lived. This soul-stirring show brings Harriet Tubman's story to life with inspiration from spirituals, freedom songs, and the blues. The show is happening to celebrate the recent opening of the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center in nearby Church Creek. Tickets are available at the door for $10 per person. His quartet also performed to rave reviews in Cambridge in 2013 during the Harriet Tubman Centennial. For the 2017 performance, the quartet features Tiffany Austin on vocals, Gaea Schell on piano, Tim Angulo on drums, and Marcus Shelby on bass/speaker. Layton’s Chance Winery is located at 4225 New Bridge Road in Vienna, Maryland. In case of inclement weather, the concert will be moved to the Dorchester Center for the Arts, 321 High Street in Cambridge. Watch for updates at HarrietTubmanByway.org or the Harriet Tubman Byway Facebook or Twitter page. The event is sponsored by the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority and proceeds benefit the new Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center. Find out more at HarrietTubmanByway.org.
