The Triumphant Quartet, one of Southern Gospel’s most acclaimed groups, will be in concert at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts on Friday, July 18, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 each.

When Clayton Inman, David Sutton, Scotty Inman, and Eric Bennett began performing together in 2002 at the Louise Mandrell Theater in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., they called themselves Integrity Quartet. In 2004, they changed their name to Triumphant Quartet.

This Saturday, the sidewalks of Main Street Franklin will be filled with regional artists and craftsmen for the Uptown Gallery’s inaugural First Saturday — Art on Main event. Starting this Saturday, and continuing on the first Saturday of the month through October, local and regional artists are invited to line the sidewalks to celebrate the heritage and culture of western North Carolina.

“We want to make the community more aware of our presence and be able to help maintain our existence in the community in these poor economic times,” said Ruth Goodier, Uptown Gallery Director. “Hopefully, we can generate patrons and customers with our extended presence on Main Street.”


The Overlook Theatre Company presented “The Civil War, A Musical Experience” last Thursday and Friday in the Franklin High School Fine Arts Center.

Drawn from letters, diaries and firsthand accounts, and the words of Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass and Walt Whitman, “The Civil War Musical” is a “thrilling, gutwrenching and awe-inspiring dramatic theatrical concert that covers the enormous emotional landscape of the most difficult time our nation has ever endured,” said producer Scotty Corbin.
