Scene clips for March 24-28, 2007
JJ Grey and Mofro play double-header
Saturday JJ Grey and Mofro will play twice: the band’s evening performance at Suede is scheduled to follow an afternoon gig at The Canyons Resort.
JJ Grey and Mofro describe their sound as a combination of rock, funk and "front porch realism." Grey says he composes songs with a nod to the tradition of Southern storytellers, drawing inspiration from the likes of Van Morrison, Bill Withers, Muddy Waters, and John Lee Hooker. Mofro’s debut album, "Country Ghetto," features a dozen original tracks by Grey.
Catch JJ Grey and Mofro at The Canyons and Mountain Town Stages Spring Concert Series at 3 p.m. on March 24 in The Forum. Series concerts are free and open to the public.
The band will also play at Park City’s private club Suede at 1612 High Ute Blvd at 9 p.m. Tickets are $17 and can be purchased at the door or at http://www.smithstix.com . For more information, visit suedepc.com.
Redstone to host reception
Redstone Gallery will hold a one-woman show and artist reception for Park City artist Diane Whitehead tonight from 6-9 p.m. Whitehead is an avid outdoorswoman and a self-taught artist. She is highly praised for her strong brushstrokes and bold use of color, both of which make her work come alive. Whitehead says she paints what she loves best: nature and animals. Her flowers and landscapes reflect the moods of the Western mountains she calls home.
Redstone Gallery is located at 1678 West Redstone Center Drive, Suite 120. For more information call 575-1000 or visit http://www.theredstonegallery.com . The gallery will run Whitehead’s show through April 15.
