Western Carolina University decided to add a little warmth to the cold winter nights back in January by sponsoring a series of informal old-time and bluegrass music jam sessions and traditional dance gatherings -- open to everyone in the region with a hankering to pick, sing and kick up their heels.
The Lectures, Concerts and Exhibitions Series at Western Carolina University will feature 10 programs for the 2004-05 season, including performances of world music, a comical twist on Shakespearean classics, and acrobats from the People's Republic of China.
“Nothing but blue skies” was more than just a line in a song performed by Western Carolina University’s Catamount Chamber Singers at the second annual CulloWHEE! ArtsFest. After heavy rains for several days leading up to the festival, it also was an apt description of a picture-perfect weekend of great music in the Great Smokies.
Organizers of Western Carolina University’s second annual CulloWHEE! ArtsFest have announced a slate of headline performers featuring chart-topping rock ‘n’ roll band Collective Soul, legendary bluesman Delbert McClinton, folkabilly queen Nanci Griffith and popular acoustic rock guitarist Edwin McCain.
