6th Annual Harlem Arts Festival

The 6th annual Harlem Arts Festival kicks off this weekend.  Once again there is a stellar mix of comedy, dance, music, food and workshops.  There is no better reason to venture over Marcus Garvey Park on Saturday and Sunday to enjoy the festivities.

Johnny Cash Museum

I’ll be honest — I recognize Johnny Cash’s unique voice. I know ‘Folsom Prison Blues’, ‘Ring of Fire’ and ‘I Walk the Line’ (the latter being an ill-advised karaoke pick of the past). But other than the songs that are absorbed by osmosis by musicians, I frankly knew almost nothing about Johnny Cash’s life and work. So, it was time to pay a visit to the Johnny Cash Museum, nestled just off Nashville’s Broadway.

Walking Tour: West End

The second installment of our “Walking Tour” series is the Nashville neighborhood/area of West End. Situated along the street of the same name, the West End area is comprised of an array of private and commercial properties. There are medical hubs like Centennial hospital, institutions of education, such as Vanderbilt University, as well as a miscellany of other great spots to explore and check out.

Late Night Jazz in Harlem

Late night music in a small venue has always appealed to me.  The intimate atmosphere and energy that moves through the crowd when a solo artist or group is deep into their set is electrifying.  This led me to look for music spots around the city and one I had long heard about was Bill’s Place on 133rd street in Harlem.  When I had family come into town one weekend I made my move and got us tickets.
