I was born and raised in the Gullah Geechee diaspora and my talents were taught to me within an actual temple! I am the Owner of Folly Beach Farmers Market, so trust me when I say have private access to some of Charleston's greatest Gullah Artisans, artists and musicians! This has been my passion for over 20 years and I am honored and prepared to share with you all!

Where you'll be

The location of our experience is a unique beachside park of the Gullah Geechee culture. It is known as the Folly River Park home of the 55th Massachusets Regiment! As an ambassador and local community figure I am able to give the best experience possible with a modern twist! You'll then get to tour each vendor with a small insight on each product and talent!

This experience was not as listed. There was NO intimate concert, no giving of gullah names, no introduction to gullah vendors and I could have read the monument in the area myself. I did message "Halo" after the fact and voice my concerns about the fact that he could be giving "gullah" culture a less than positive public standing and this was part of his reply " I said that I believe my culture is so great that based on your opinion it would not be affected. "

Fascinating to hear their stories, but also shocking what happened. The oysters, the shrimp and crab were delicious. Simple food but authentic and tasty. Thanks!
