In commemoration of a truly influential musician, The 2022 Eddie Durham Festival resumes on Saturday, October 15th (all day), outdoors in the Eddie Durham Park & Pavilion, within his hometown of San Marcos, Texas.
The street will be blocked off, to accommodate many vendors, and for security reasons.
Support The Eddie Durham Festival (It’s fast, easy, and tax deductible, too!)
The Calaboose African American History Museum (https://www.calaboosemuseum.org/about), which houses the only permanent Eddie Durham exhibit, requires help from music lovers and those who understand the importance of keeping Black American History alive, such as yourself.
Located just a few steps from Eddie Durham Park & Pavilion where the festival will take place, the museum will act as a cooling center from the outdoor heat as well as place for public educational segments to be held.
During the festival you can bring your Eddie Durham books to the Calaboose African American History Museum to get Topsy Durham’s autograph, as well.
Your kind donation is being requested in support of these events.
Please donate whatever amount moves your heart, and consider an annual donation, as the Museum is a 501c3 non-profit org. No amount is too small or too large.
PAUL THOMPSON – Bassist, educator, and husband from Pittsburgh, PA. Professor of Jazz Bass at West Virginia University and Duquesne University. Adjunct instrumental music teacher at Pittsburgh CAPA 6-12 Performing Arts School (PPS). Performances include recording and touring stints with trumpeter Maynard Ferguson and saxophonist Stanley Turrentine. Performance credits include Hubert Laws, Geri Allen, Michael Feinstein, Bob James, Phil Woods, Sean Jones, and Billy Porter, among others. Currently, he can be seen playing around the Pittsburgh area among the region’s rich and diverse musical community.
Note: Paul talks about Monk spending an hour learning a single tune. I heard a story that some friends left Bud Powell in the early evening when he was working on “Embraceable You.” When they came back many hours later in the early hours of the morning he was still working on it!
