Idris Ackamoor: Artistic Being

The California Arts Council in partnership with the Attorney General’s Office is delighted to support a collaboration between Cultural Odyssey and musician Idris Ackamoor, to present FREE public concerts throughout California. These activities are supported, in part, with funds provided by the California Arts Council and the California Department of Justice’s 2003 antitrust settlement with major music-distribution companies and national retail chains. This prestigious award will allow Mr. Ackamoor and his special guest, musician Frederick Harris, to present ARTISTIC BEING, a concert combining jazz, world music, new age, and tap dance to geographically-diverse regions of California.

ARTISTIC BEING will feature Idris Ackamoor, (alto sax, flutes, mbiras, tap dance, percussions, invented instruments) and special guest Frederick Harris (electric & acoustic piano, drums). The tour will focus on rural counties away from the major population centers; however, certain inner city communities located in the counties with large urban centers will also be served.

There will be two shows in Sierra County:

  • In Sierraville at Sierraville Recreation Center, Friday, March 26, 2010 at 7:30 p.m., and
  • In Downieville at the Yuba Theatre, Saturday, March 27, 2010 at 7:30 p.m.

Admission is FREE!

  • Californians will once again have the opportunity to support the California Arts Council and its arts programs for children through their state individual tax refund. Sept. 2013, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. signed Senate Bill 571 (Senator Carol Liu, La Canada Flintridge), returning the arts to the voluntary contribution portion of California tax return forms through the new "Keep Arts in Schools Fund." Donations are tax deductible and support Arts Council programs throughout the state.
