Eat, sip stroll, tip.
WALK PAST OUTDOOR PERFORMANCES BY SOLO MUSICIANS,
DINE & DRINK AT A LOCAL RESTAURANT,
DONATE TO A FUND TO SUPPORT A FAVORITE LOCAL MUSIC VENUE OR PERFORMER.
Rain from Eta is gone and four new musicians are ready to welcome community members out into the clear weather Saturday.
As COVID case numbers are increasing, we ask you to remember the 3Ws in accordance with all state and Orange Co. public health guidelines. Do not gather/crowd around the artists, do give a tip and a round of applause from a nearby outdoor seating space.
Once again enjoy street music along with dinner and/or drinks at your favorite downtown restaurant or bar. Take the opportunity to stroll through downtown to hear all of the musicians, shop and stay socially distanced and safe.
This event series supports the artists who don’t have stadiums, concert halls or clubs to perform in while adding an ambience, a soundtrack, to our community as we continue to fight through these hard economic times.

Meet the musicians for Nov. 14
Moving West to east, these artists are who you’ll hear as you
move through downtown Chapel Hill along Franklin Street and
SAFELY ENJOY MUSIC AT A DISTANCE.
Listen to Glenn Jones at 450 West Franklin Street (just east of the Chapel Hill Nine Marker/near the old West End Wine Bar).
Glenn Jones is a long-time, full timer singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and performer. Glenn’s material is self-described as “wildly eclectic, with rootsy, bluesy, poppy, and country elements abounding. The music is story/character heavy, fun, and draws/holds a crowd,” (but we remind you to crowd only in following social distancing guidelines).
In Jan. 2020, Glenn dropped his most recent album, “Ready for the Good Times,” and he, indeed, sees the humor in that title.
Learn more about Glenn Jones by visiting his website.
Catch Rob Gelblum at 306 West Franklin Street (in front of Chimney, Jimmy John, Purple Bowl and Blue Dogwood Public Market).
Rob has been playing guitar and piano, and singing, for over 50 years. The thing that all his songs have in common, regardless of genre, is soulfulness. He plays everything from folk to R&B, pre-’90s rock, Americana, bluegrass, reggae, Appalachian, old-time, mountain, soul and older country.
Follow Rob on Facebook or “fan,” him on ReverbNation.
Sway & Smooth
Listen to Sway & Smooth Saturday at 140 West Franklin St. between Rosemary Street & Franklin Street, along Church Street (near Que Chula).

Certain Seas (Katharine Whalen, Austin Riopel, Danny Grewen) will perform at Peace & Justice Plaza at the corner of Henderson St. and E. Franklin St.
Certain Seas is an indie-folk project from Katharine Whalen (banjo, tenor guitar, vocals), Austin Riopel (guitar, vocals), and Danny Grewen (trombone, euphonium, vocals). Their songs bring a special sense of harmony and lyricism that looks this strange world in the eye with a bittersweet sense of humor. Since the start of the pandemic they have put out a weekly livestream from Yonder: Southern Cocktails and Brew where they have performed a variety of jazz, jug, and folk tunes in addition to their original catalog.
