Acoustic trio Nixon, Blevins, & Gage bring their popular Pickin’ on Christmas program back to the Music of the Carolinas series! Guitar player Larry Nixon, host of the PineCone Bluegrass Radio Show, cross-picker David Blevins, and bassist Steve Gage perform acoustic music that combines folk, traditional, religious, and country music with selections ranging from modern songs adapted to their style to true-to-form preservations of older songs.

Canned food donations will be accepted for the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, a nonprofit organization that provides food for people at risk of hunger in 34 counties in central and eastern North Carolina. The Food Bank does this with the help of a network of 800 partner agencies such as soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, and programs for children and adults.  With branches in Durham, Greenville, New Bern, Raleigh, Southern Pines and Wilmington, the Food Bank distributed nearly 54 million pounds of food and non-food essentials last year.

This is PineCone and the Museum of History’s sixth year pairing a food drive with the December Music of the Carolinas concert. There are over 650,000 people in central and eastern NC who are food insecure, meaning they are unable to consistently access nutritious and adequate amounts of food necessary for an active and healthy life. One third of these are children. You can help by bringing at least two cans of food to the Nixon, Blevins, & Gage concert. Child-friendly items such as pop-top cans, cereal bars, fruit cups, peanut butter, and healthy fruit snacks are particularly needed. Holiday food drives are a very important part of the Food Bank’s year-end efforts, and your help is greatly appreciated!
