The Old State House to host special Delaware Friends of Folk concert event July 28
Delaware Friends of Folk, in cooperation with the Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs, will present a special concert event at The Old State House on The Green in Dover featuring The Knotty G’s and bassist Felix Pastorius at 7 p.m. on Friday, July 28. This unique show is also supported by the First State Heritage Park, a partnership of state and city agencies under the leadership of Delaware State Parks and the Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs. The concert is open to the public and a donation of $10 per person is requested. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Seating is limited.
The 90-minute performance will feature The Knotty G’s. Originally from Wilmington, in 2017 Chuck Knott met his future wife, Gillian, near Ashville, N.C., a town they now call home. Their many musical journeys led them to cross paths with noted bassist Felix Pastorius, son of jazz icon Jaco Pastorius. Discovering a strong musical link resulted in the new friends announcing a special series of three shows including Wilmington, Dover and New York City. The Old State House show in Dover will feature the only trio performance of the tour, showcasing their original compositions. The intimate setting of this historic venue will allow the audience to immerse themselves in the intricate melodies and heartfelt lyrics that define The Knotty G’s signature sound.
Felix Pastorius will lend his extraordinary talents to The Knotty G’s. Known for his captivating performances and his eagerness to share the language of music, his expertise and virtuosity on the bass will add an unparalleled depth and groove to the evening.
“We really want you to come have a good time, so if more is in order we appreciate it, but if you can’t swing it don’t worry about it,” Knott said of the $10 donation for attending the show. “The music is meant to be shared.”
This special Old State House concert is presented by Delaware Friends of Folk, which is partially supported by grants from the Delaware Division of the Artsin partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
