I Hope Y’all Play, Even When I’m Away

First – a big “THANK YOU” goes out to Station No. 7 for their awesome performance at last week’s first Summer Concert at Water Works Park. The weather was just right and the tunes were even better! About 60 people came out to enjoy the sweet sounds of Appling Arts.

Mark your calendars for our next show: Friday, June 10. Rockabilly musician, Aaron Irons, is coming down from Macon, Georgia to  rock off your socks! Just like last Friday, the ice cream sandwiches will be sweet, the popcorn will be hot and the drinks will be iced just right!aaronironssummerfbcover

If you missed the Station No. 7’s performance last Friday and want to see them asap, you can head to the Caroline Miller House tomorrow (Saturday 5/28) afternoon at 4:00 for Pickin’ on the Porch. A variation of Station No. 7 is always there playing and singing and invites you to play and sing along with them!

I am in a wedding this weekend in BEAUTIFUL Aiken, South Carolina. If you haven’t visited this city, I recommend you do. The wedding ceremony and reception will be held in the Aiken Center for the Arts. I’ve had a little peak of this beautiful center. There’s beautiful art all over it, items for sale, and lots of ideas…. Tomorrow, I’ve heard, there’s an art scavenger hunt planned for the reception. This is working…. right? I kid. I’m on a vacation in a beautiful city, but I AM learning a little while I’m here.

I hope – if you are in town – that you’ll head out to Pickin’ on the Porch on Saturday afternoon.

I also hope- on any day – that you’ll consider continuing or beginning a new membership with the Arts Council between now and June 30. I’ve said before, and I’ll say again… It’s our Early Bird Membership Drive! earlybirdcover
