Music & Poetry evening at the Rickman Store

Songwriter and singer Angela Faye Martin will host an evening of music and poetry at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 30 at the Rickman Store in Cowee.

Among previous performers who will return to the Store are Laurence Holden, Steve Brady and Kathrine Cays. Poet Laurence Holden is a prolific painter and artist who has been published widely.

One of Macon County’s crown jewels in the field of the performing arts is actor/writer/musician Steve Brady, who can be remembered for his performance as the “The Prince of Dark Corners,” another Rickman Store production by director and play writer Gary Neil Carden.

Katherine Cays is the artist-in-residence at the Rickman Store.

This gathering will also include the performance of the Ubuntu Choir of Franklin. The choir sings spirituals and gospel music from many world traditions, in many languages, and also from local traditions.
