Lil’s Gigs for April

If you’re a Lil Greenwood fan, get out your calendar. For the uninitiated, Lil is an incredible jazz/blues vocalist and songwriter. She was discovered by Duke Ellington at the Purple Onion (the one in the other LA, not here in Mobile) in the 1940s, and she spent three decades touring with the jazz/blues greats including The Ellington Orchestra, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughn and others. We’re lucky she calls Prichard home, and she performs regularly in the Mobile area.

Lil performs with Hosea London, leader of Mobile’s legendary Excelsior Band. Below is their schedule for April. Here’s the amazing part: these are all free events (at least I think so; call to avoid disappointment).

April 9, 8:00pm – 10:00pm
Serdas Coffee Shop, 3 S.Royal St., Mobile – Swing by while you’re downtown for ArtWalk.

April 18, 11:30am – 1:30pm
Ozio’s Pizza, 697 U.S. Hwy 98, Daphne

April 25,2010, 6:00pm- 9:00pm
Music Under the Stars – Roman Street will play first and Lil will play next as the headliner. Bring you own chairs. In case of rain, it will move to the Daphne Civic Center.
Daphne City Hall, 1705 Main Street

Thanks to my roving reporter Kevin (and to Linda Taylor) for this information on Lil Greenwood’s schedule.
