Duda Lucena to play festival at Pawleys Island, 9/28

Posted by T. Ballard Lesemann on Tue, Sep 23, 2008 at 11:09 AM

Brazilian-born singer, guitarist, and composer Duda Lucena — a versatile performer whose set is based on a blend of Brazilian styles — headlines Pawleys Island Festival of Music and Art’s Jazz Under the Oaks event at 4 p.m. on Sun. Sept. 28.

Drawing from bossa nova, baião, samba, and a variety of American roots and blues music, Lucena has recently established himself as one of the more popular jazz performers in the Charleston scene. His talented backing combo features drummer Quentin Baxter, upright bassist Kevin Hamilton, and pianist Gerald Gregory. Their gigs were highlights during the locally-produced Upstairs at Mistral series during this year’s Piccolo Spoleto.

Pawleys Island Festival of Music and Art takes place at Litchfield Plantation on Avenue of Live Oaks in Pawleys Island. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at www.pawleysmusic.com or by phone at

(843) 237-4774. Jogue a música e faça-o cantar, Duda!
