Arts & Entertainment

The Macon County Heritage Center at Cowee School in Franklin is hosting “Understanding our Past, Shaping our Future,” on view in the auditorium through Sept. 27. The exhibit will be open to the general public on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

"Understanding our Past, Shaping our Future" is a touring exhibition that focuses on Cherokee language and culture, using sound recordings as the basis for presenting a coherent story in words and text. Rather than translating from English into Cherokee as is often done, the exhibit text was excerpted from conversations originally recorded in Cherokee.


Hundreds of area youth and young adults will join together for an exciting free event Sunday, Sept. 21, at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts.

“The Gathering” started with the heart of seeing students and churches in the local community come together, as one, to worship and be encouraged as the body of Christ.

Attendees will hear a great message from the main event speaker, Ed Newton with special music from Faith Music.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the event starts at 7 p.m. Everyone should come early to get your seats.

Check out or call (828)371-1167 for more information.

Steve Waldroop and the Heartland Band play every Saturday all year long at the Carson Community Building on the Old Murphy Road in Franklin beginning at 7 p.m.

Country and gospel music, clogging, and dancing, too. Music, coffee and cookies, refreshments and indoor plumbing.
