In a rapidly gentrifying city, where do we go to learn to be together, to be made whole?

Music in the Basement is an experimental gathering, an ever-evolving assembly bound together by the joy of collaborative art, of making music.

It began in the fall of 2018, but its roots go back further than that. When The Shed—a tiny, Durham-based performing arts space located in the Golden Belt—closed down, we contacted one of our favorite regular performers—The Ernest Turner Trio—to see if they would be up for bringing their regular jam session to us. We’re so glad they said yes.

Music in the Basement is a collaboration with Emmaus Way and New Creation UMC.
