Thirty years ago, singer, guitarist and songwriter Jeffrey Dean Foster co-founded The Right Profile. The Winston-Salem-based quartet played high-energy, rootsy rock and roll, and it quickly became one of the best indie bands in our state. Jeffrey’s been releasing amazing songs ever since he and his band were first signed to Arista Records in the mid-80s. He’s received the North Carolina Arts Council Fellowship for Songwriting and Jeffrey Dean Foster and the Birds of Prey are about to release a new album The Arrow, which they’ll share during a Triad concert on New Year’s Eve.
Every year around this time there’s an enormous variety of artful holiday traditions going on here in the Triad. Dance, music, theatre, art, you’ll find it all, and frankly, there just aren’t enough hours in the day to attend every event. But today on Triad Arts Holiday Celebration, gonna have our fruit cake and eat it too. First off, we’ll hear lots of outstanding music—holiday favorites, plus some completely original sounds of the season. We’ve also got poems, short stories and essays that explore this magical time of year. The best part is, for the next hour everything you'll hear will be performed by a group of incredibly talented musicians, poets and writers who each call the Piedmont home. It’s a Triad Arts Holiday Celebration Part II.
