Sweet Honey in the Rock: Celebrating the "Holydays"

When: Thu., Dec. 18, 8-10 p.m. 2014

SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK

CAROLINA THEATRE, DURHAM

THURSDAY, DEC. 18

Sweet Honey in the Rock makes a timely visit to a dissatisfied Durham. This all-female, African-American a cappella franchise has combined music and activism for nearly 40 years, lending their prestige to humanitarian events and funneling profits into civil rights causes. While they likely won't don "Black Lives Matter" T-shirts to march to Highway 147, the ensemble has long served as an inspiration and soundtrack for such necessary causes, gatherings and action. By celebrating the link between gospel and blues and African musical roots, Sweet Honey in the Rock connects listeners to an era when the spirit of music and the spirit of protest were the same. 8 p.m., $34–$87.75, 309 W. Morgan St., Durham, 919-560-3030, carolinatheatre.org. Chris Vitiello

Price: $34
