Vinyl Brothers Big Band promises to fill the air with classic rock and soulful hits when it takes the stage Friday, June 1, for the Concerts on the Creek series.

The Asheville-based ensemble of 10 friends has a fondness for the hits of their younger days - a time when vinyl records were still king. And the band sets itself apart with an impressive five-member brass section.

Sylva native and trumpet player Tim Gillespie says the group performs songs people are used to hearing, but it's probably been a while since they've heard them backed by horns.


SKY VBS is being offered to all children 12 years old and under at First Christian Church of Franklin every Wednesday evening from June 6 to July 25.

Friends and family are invited for this free event as kids discover that everything is possible and the “Sky is the limit.”

Vacation Bible School activities start at 6:45 p.m. and continue to 8:30 p.m. The fun-filled night will include songs, activities, adventures, games and snacks. Come early at 6 p.m. for a free dinner. Parents, guardians and teens are also welcome.


Licklog Players is looking for several men and women of all ages and boys and girls over the age of eight years old to audition for "Annie Get Your Gun” directed by Nancy Davis on Saturday, June 2, at 10 a.m. and Monday, June 4, at 7 p.m.

The play opens July 26 and runs through July 29. Annie Oakley is a backwoods gal with a sure shot and a quick wit, as she challenges striking marksman Frank Butler to be the star of of Buffalo Bill's traveling show. Sparks fly faster than bullets as the competition and romance heat up.


Cullowhee Mountain ARTS kicks off its Summer Visual Arts Series on June 17 with four distinguished New England artists who will teach hands-on workshops on the campus of Western Carolina University. The Summer Visual Arts Series of 2012 will feature 24 workshops taught by nationally recognized artists over six weeks plus a special week, July 2-6, focusing on youth and teen art workshops.

Maine artist Louise Bourne will be teaching “Oils: Inside – Outside,” which will take students “out” into the landscape and “in” to the painting studio. Bourne will guide students with the use of oil pastels.
