About this Event

WEINSTEIN AUTHOR SERIES

Sweet Bitter Blues: A Conversation with Authors Phil Wiggins & Frank Matheis

Thursday, March 19, 2020 | 5:30–7:30 PM

Library of Virginia Lecture Hall | Free and open to the public

Free Parking is available under the building, accessible from 8th and 9th Streets.

Please join us as the Library hosts authors Phil Wiggins and Frank Matheis in a conversation about Sweet Bitter Blues, a compelling and personal narrative about the Piedmont blues scene in the Washington, D.C., area. Many of the region’s best-known traditional bluesmen and women had deep roots in Virginia, including Flora Molton, Archie Edwards, and Wiggins’s long-time musical partner, John Cephas. Audience members will also be treated to a performance of Piedmont blues by Wiggins, a widely acknowledged master of the Piedmont style and a blues harmonica legend.

This is the inaugural event in the 2020 Carole Weinstein Author Series, which supports the literary arts by bringing both new and well-known authors to the Library of Virginia. Free and open to the public, the series focuses on Virginia authors and Virginia subjects across all genres. A reception opens this evening at 5:30 PM, followed by the program at 6:00 PM and a book signing at 7:15 PM. For more information, contact Dawn Greggs at 804.692.3813 or dawn.greggs@lva.virginia.gov.
