Songwriters in the Round: the Carolina Series @ ARTworks

Expect a delightful evening and bring along someone to share a good laugh: Carroll Brown, Big Frank Waddell, and Michael Reno Harrell are accomplished writers, born and raised in the Carolinas, from the North Carolina Mountains to the South Carolina Lowcountry. They each tell engaging real-life stories, in rhyme and song and in knee-slapping prose. Some are humorous, and some will tug at your own memories. "Michael Reno Harrell is a classic storyteller with a voice that's part Marty Robbins, part John Prine. There's an organic timelessness to his songs, whether he's rushing through a classic on-the-run tale or quietly mourning a long-dead friend." - The Charlotte Observer.  This gifted trio has performed around the country and across the world, together and seperately, in festivals and concert venues, churches, pubs and house concerts. “Carroll Brown is a brilliant guitar player whose solos bring applause and leave other guitar players shaking their heads in disbelief and admiration. A powerful, yet warm and clear singing voice and his original songs will touch your heart. Couple this with a cheerful and humorous dialog with his audience between songs...and you have the consummate entertainer.”-  Lowcountry Sun Newspaper Their unique and very successful annual tour is proud to make a stop in Beaufort, celebrating their heritage in this part of the South Carolina Lowcountry. "It is a very rewarding experience to start with an idea and take it to the completion of a song and then perform it in public," explained Big Frank Waddell. "My songs are mainly Americana Folk and comedy. A few are Gospel and some are what I call Family Folk. I do a lot of storytelling, it's a natural take." 

Sunday, March 3 at 3pm, tix are $17 per person, $12 for students (13+), $7 for children (12 and under) and $12 for groups of 10 or more. This performance is in the black box theater, surrounded by gallery exhibitions, workshops, and artists working in their studios, at ARTworks in Beaufort Town Center, 2127 Boundary Street 29902., 843-379-2787.
