In open studios and one-man bands

comment
Basement Studios in Raleigh are working artists' studios that now and then open their doors to the public, as they plan to do this Sunday. They'll be selling art, and food and drink will be available, as well as live entertainment. And speaking of which, how often do you get the chance to see and hear a good one-man band--you know, a guy who doesn't waste anything, body parts-wise, in his quest to entertain? Renowned performer Eric Royer (pictured), who plays banjo, harmonica, dobro and his own foot-controlled invention, "The Guitar Machine," sings and accompanies himself in a style he calls "street bluegrass." Royer will play "around 2 p.m. or 3 p.m." The event takes place this Sunday, June 2, from 1-6 p.m. at the studios, located behind Clark Art at the corner of Glenwood and Lane in Raleigh.
