Sibella Band leads Nov. 1 Night Out
Sibella Band kicks off this Cooper-Young Night Out starting at 6 p.m. Nov. 1 at the gazebo in the neighborhood square.
Sibella’s sound is reminiscent of the Sarah McLachlan, Indigo Girls and Damien Rice with a splash of cello and congas. This three-woman Memphis band is comprised of Tamar Love, Valentine Leonard and Sarah Ford. Come enjoy their upbeat and engaging songs ranging from lighthearted stories to matters of personal experience.
The Memphis Association of Craft Artists will join us this month at the gazebo area with demonstrations, sales and information regarding their first progressive art show, “Tour of Fine Craft.”
Join us to celebrate the love of art at the reception for the winners and participants of this year’s Young Artist Contest at Peabody Elementary School located a half-block west on Young Avenue. Come and browse art submitted by students from the Memphis area that will be on display in the school’s cafeteria. This is a very popular contest that drew more than 550 entries in 2011. A reception is set for 6 to 7 p.m. and is sponsored by Lenny’s Sub Shop. Enjoy free refreshments while you take in some great art.
