23Arts Blues at the Arboretum

$10 Suggested Donation for Non-Members.

23Arts returns to Mountain Top Arboretum, featuring a duo debut with Cape Town, South Africa-born guitar virtuoso Derek Gripper and the innovative Chilean guitarist-vocalist Camila Meza. Bring a chair and a blanket, relax by the West Meadow Pond and celebrate summer to live music with views of the Arboretum.

Derek Gripper is a South African kora guitarist. His groundbreaking albums, including Sagtevlei with Alex van Heerden, have redefined the landscape of South African music. The Sound of Water, Gripper's recording of the music of Gismonti, was nominated for a South African Music Award (SAMA).

Camila Meza is a guitarist, vocalist and songwriter/composer. Originally from Santiago, Chile, Ms. Meza blends modern jazz with her broad musical world which includes Latin American, Brazilian, folk and pop.
