A folk concert and artist reception will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday, May 18, at the Swain County Center for the Arts in Bryson City.
Thea & The GreenMan of Asheville will perform a concert of original acoustic folk music from 7 to 8:15 p.m. The duo is known for its stellar harmony vocals accompanied by guitar and percussion. Their lyrics are inspired by Native American imagery, the elements of nature, and the subject of mountains, rivers and canyons.
Immediately following the concert there will be a reception from 8:15 to 9 p.m. for artist and writer Laura Elliott and glass artist Tadashi Torii, both of Sylva. The exhibit of abstract paintings and glasswork will be on display at the Center for the Arts through July 23.
In addition, Iva Veazey of Durham will play the keyboard during the reception, performing compositions inspired by Elliott’s paintings.
The evening is sponsored by Swain County Center for the Arts and Swain County Schools. It is free and open to the public.
