Reed is all about local. She supports local businesses and makes sure she plays shows here in the Triangle as well. That’s why she’s double booked, so to speak, on Saturday, April 25.
The South African born singer will play during Brewgaloo, Raleigh’s annual beer fest that features breweries from across North Carolina. She’s scheduled to take the City Plaza stage at 2 p.m.
You can also catch her the same day at the Art of Cool Festival in Durham. Her set will begin at 9:45 p.m. at The Pinhook. “[The Art of Cool] is a nonprofit that’s really helping elevate jazz, different musicians and kids,” Reed says. “Anything that’s helping bring music to children, I’m all for it!”
We recently spent a day with Reed in Raleigh to talk about her music, upcoming shows and her affinity for local.
