C-Square Rocks the Square
Rock the Square,” a vintage rock concert and street dance, was held Friday on the Town Square gazebo, Main Street in downtown Franklin.
Multi-talented musician Dave Stewart (below-left) opened the show with pop and folk tunes, James Taylor-style.
At 7:30, the award-winning C-Square & Company, (right) with keyboardist Lionel Caynon, vocalists Bobbie and Mike Contino, and saxophonist Chris Corbin, joined Stewart on the gazebo stage to perform pop and Motown hits from Elvis and the Everly Brothers to the Beatles and Billy Joel.
These events are produced by the Arts Council of Macon County, and are funded by the Grassroots Arts Program of the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.

Sundays on the Square
On Sunday, the Arts Council presented a double-bill concert featuring humorist/vocalist Cindy Miles (below-left) and The McChoir Sisters, (below-right) on the Town Square Gazebo in downtown Franklin.
A versatile musician and laughter therapist, Miles blends rib-tickling commentary and lighthearted music.
The McChoir Sisters Trio, comprised of Margie Kellam, Kathy Kuhlman and Cathy Sill, performed Big Band Era and classic pop standards in Andrews Sisters-style harmonies.
The next installment of Sundays on the Square is an old-time Sacred Music sing-along Sunday, Sept. 30.
