River Whyless and Driftwood

Presented by The New Hazlett Theater and Music Night On Jupiter

Saturday, April 168PM

Mark your calendar for two great nationally renowned bands: The New Hazlett Theater and Music Night On Jupiter present River Whyless and Driftwood on Saturday, April 16, 2016. We think you won’t be able to sit still in your seat.

 

From the Binghamton, New York music scene comes Driftwood, a band with a rock n’ roll soul and a folk art mind. Carving out a name for themselves with electrifying live performances, they bring one of the most unique, raw sounds to the Americana/roots music scene.

Asheville, North Carolina’s River Whyless is a band like a river – a mingling of currents, a flow of time and physical space, all brought together in a murmuring sense of purpose. It is the expression of a group of musicians, three of which are songwriters, who have played together in various forms since their college days in the North Carolina mountains.

Floyd Collins

Presented by Front Porch Theatricals

Fri-Sun, August 26-28Friday - Saturday 8PM, Sunday 2PM

Based on the true story.  In 1925, while chasing a dream of fame and fortune by turning a Kentucky cave into a tourist attraction, Floyd Collins himself becomes the attraction when he gets trapped 200 feet underground.  Alone but for sporadic contact with the outside world, Floyd fights for his sanity and ultimately his life as the rescue effort above explodes into America’s first genuine media circus.

This haunting musical boasts a distinguished score as memorable as it is engaging, as it tells the transcendent tale of a true American dreamer.
