6:30PM-8:00PM  
Willie E. Atkinson and the Transitional Jazz Trio

Extend your Labor Day holiday vibe with the kick-off concert for Season 10 of the Jazz@CAM series. The concert series begins on a strong note with area favorite and crowd-pleaser, New Bern vocalist Willie E. Atkinson (willieeatkinsonjazz-blues.weebly.com) performing with percussionist Michael Hanson, jazz guitarist Phil Owens and double bassist Doug Trammel.

Atkinson is a Jazz/Blues vocalist born in the northern region of Johnston County, NC where he became a student of his kinfolk’s musical voice, a music that would become known as the Piedmont Blues. He recalls his Grandmother teaching him how to tell the story of a song without losing the beat “…Just hold your head high, sing it like you mean it and pat your feet.”

The popular eight-concert series returns for its tenth season! Offering great music from Wilmington area favorites and musicians from around the state in concert playing a range of jazz genres in an intimate listening room "close up and personal" performance setting for your pleasure. Presented by Cameron Art Museum and the Cape Fear Jazz Society.
