Summer Sounds 2018

In a revamp year for the Summer Sounds at St. James program, Chris LeBlanc will be performing in Bishops Hall at St. James on Wednesday evening, July 25 at 7:00 p.m.

Chris LeBlanc has been a mainstay on the Louisiana music scene for over 20 years, playing local and regional shows, throughout the U.S., and Europe. He has been billed with such artist as  ZZ Top, Hank Williams Jr, Buddy Guy, Dr John, BB King, Vince Gill, and Brett Michaels. He is described as “a musician’s musician and a performer’s performer.” LeBlanc has released four CDs since 1995 on his own label, Sweetroll Records, as well as recording with other legendary artists, including Bobby Charles, Dr. John, Sonny Landreth, Bobby Charles, and others.

Chris’ music resonates a rich bluesy sound of the south and pays homage to some of his greatest influences, including The Rolling Stones, Muddy Waters, and every juke joint in between. His show includes original pieces as well as covers ranging from The Beatles and Creedance Clearwater Revival to Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters.

 

 

General admission is $10; college students with a valid ID will be admitted free. A reception follows so the audience may have an opportunity to meet the performers, obtain memorabilia and recordings, and enjoy the St. James Artists’ Guild Summer Exhibition and Sale.

St. James Artists Guild

 

The St. James Artists Guild is open to all practicing artists in the St. James family. Twice a year, month-long exhibitions of works are held in the Parish Hall parlor (generally, in July and November) and professional works are displayed in a stunning arrangement displaying the artistic talents of the parish. Some pieces are offered for sale at the exhibitions, but "NFS" pieces are also exhibited. Both exhibitions have developed sustained followings through their eight-year runs. Contact Nancy Jo Poirrier for more information about the Guild.

One Stop Artists Guild is comprised of art students taught at the One Stop Homeless Services Center, a facility of the Capital Area Alliance for the Homeless, by St. James parishioners Elizabeth Whitley and Warren Green. Elizabeth and Warren have helped direct the efforts of several students with profound talent who create insightful and enjoyable works of art.

Patron Information:

St. James Episcopal Church in Baton Rouge will present an exhibition of art created by members of the St. James Artists Guild, in the Parish Hall parlor. The work of these professional artists will be on exhibit throughout the month.

Compassionate God, source of all comfort,
We pray for those whose lives have been devastated by rain and flood. Bring them comfort, we pray. Protect the vulnerable. Strengthen the weak. Have mercy on all those working to rescue the stranded and feed the hungry. And may our response to their suffering be generous and such as would bring you praise.
-- Amen

Rev. 18 Nov 2016
