ImageTempus fugit. I learned that terms years ago on a show by that name on the grand old Radio WETZ, The Valley Station! Anybody else remember that? It means ‘time flees’. I’ve been kept busy with grant business and fundraising for our upcoming Seldom Scene concert. We’ve got lots of local businesses on board, and more are welcome! The concert is on Saturday, June 15 at 7:30 at the Lincoln Theater. The concert is in honor of Norbert Ebert and the Ebert Brothers Show. These country variety shows just finished their FORTY-FIFTH year!! Wow, that’s pretty amazing. The shows were started to support the continuing existance of the Lincoln Theater; that, in itself, is noteworthy. But, that they’ve been encouraging and supporting local talent for this many years is just phenomenal. Speaking of phenomenal, our group, the Seldom Scene, is a very well-known bluegrass group. Their latest CD, Scenechronized, was nominated for a Grammy award and they’ve played at the White House in Washington. As most of you know, I’m a big fan of Gino Vannelli, and even I have listened to this CD, and, yes, enjoyed it! Also performing will be local groups the Battle Weary Band and the Tharp Brothers. Carman Harman will be our emcee and Patches the Clown may be stopping by to join in the fun. I mentioned grants earlier. This is our first time to participate in an American Masterpieces tour and I’m excited to tell you that:

The Seldom Scene is funded through the American Masterpieces program of the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the West Virginia Division of Culture and History. ArtsLink is committed to providing universal accessibility wherever possible. Persons with special needs may contact us at 304-455-2278 to request assistance. Grant contracts require this kinda stuff…..

Tickets are $13 in advance and are available right now at Witschey’s in New Martinsville. They’ll be $15 at the door. So, I hope to see you all there – call me with questions!
