CULLOWHEE – Tickets will go on sale Monday, Feb. 28, for a concert featuring two up-and-coming acts in the world of country music appearing soon at Western Carolina University.

Church, a native of Granite Falls, is quickly developing a devoted following with his lyrically honest, guitar-driven country music. Already a passionate songwriter at age 13, Church continued composing and performing his music all the way through his college years, after which he moved to Nashville with the hopes of launching a singing career.


If you have ever wondered how beautiful stained glass is made, Fire and Light Glass Studio owner John Phillips can tell you. Not only can he tell you, he can teach you everything there is to know about art glass and welcome you into his studio to learn how to create works of art using stained glass or fused glass methods.

Located just off Highway 441S in Otto, Phillips opened his 2,200 foot studio six years ago after moving from Duluth, Ga., where he started his glass business in 1980. Phillips decided to move to Otto and into a much smaller studio so he could slow down and relax a bit.
