The Lightning Bugs are a rocking Americana ensemble fronted by Asheville couple Jenny and Jason Martin. They are well known for their Indie, classic, and original rock and roll style, along with some old-time Appalachian gospel songs, performed on keyboard, guitar, and ukulele, and completed with Jenny's warm, powerful vocals. The couple will be joined by George Sweet on cello for an extra special musical blend. The Sunday concerts in Canton have been a wonderful success!

17th Annual Student Honors Recital March 29
Haywood Arts Regional Theater


The Haywood County Arts Council sponsors an annual showcase of developing talent in the community. Young pianists, instrumentalists and vocalists are invited to perform in this year’s event at the Performing Arts Center on March 29, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. Through the years an impressive parade of young performers has delighted audiences. Sometimes the selections will be major classics by Beethoven or Mozart, but more often there will be clever compositions to challenge beginners. Musical skills develop gradually over several years, and part of the training is public performance. The Student Honors Recital has provided a world-class experience, with a wonderful performance hall and a concert grand piano to complete the venue.

Area teachers who have studios for piano, instrumental, and vocal instruction are asked to contact the recital coordinator Anna Watson at 828.456.6378 to register their students.
