Mackenzie Herman (R) added her 13-year-old voice to Franklin favorite Keirsten Hedden Band wowing the crowd with their powerhouse delivery.

The musicians braved the cold to perform for the also-frozen crowd at the last Pickin’ on the Square of the season last Friday.



Members of Macon Middle School’s Honors Chorus and Honors Band entertained a full gymnasium last week.

Under the direction of Thomas Graham and Jennifer Speier, students performed fall favorites such as Monster Mash, and music from Halloween films such as Ghostbusters and The Gremlins.

The chorus also performed music such as “I Believe I Can Fly” and “Hero.”


The eighth annual Western North Carolina Pottery Festival takes place Nov. 3, attracting an impressive lineup of master potters to Dillsboro.

This year's festival once again features 45 potters, each selected from a juried pool that included more than 80 applicants. They hail from North Carolina and 12 other states, including featured potters Tony and Mindy Winchester of Iowa.

"The show now attracts more and more national potters who showcase unique wares," said festival organizer Joe Frank McKee of Tree House Pottery in Dillsboro. "Overall, we strive to provide traditional pottery values with a touch of contemporary flair."


With the 2012 entertainment season winding down at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts, the center held an open house last Thursday to give the public its first taste of the exciting things coming to Franklin next year.

Folks lined up outside of the performing arts center, waiting for a chance to be first in line to select their season tickets seats for 2013. Greeted by theater manager Scotty Corbin and a smorgasbord of delicious treats from local restaurants such as Rosebud Cottage, The Boiler Room Steakhouse. Fatz and Main Street Coffee and Tea, guests were given behind the scenes tours of the theatre and a sneak peak into what is expected in 2013.
