Joseph Vance & friends will be performing live for customers here at Harvest from 7-9

Joseph : Shelbyville music lovers and music makers …this is community-wide call to musical-arms!

Beginning Thursday October 19th, our downtown Harvest Cafe will provide the scene where I will host the first event in a community music program, wherein the goal is to develop a network of musicians – performing, composing/songwriting, bedroom pickers and bathroom singers.

In 20 years of ups and downs in various areas of music and musical education, one constant has held true: people LOVE to make music together!! And it is difficult/weird/inconvenient to even know where to begin…

So why not form a group/society/network of we musicians, where we not only network with and among one another, but develop a network of gig-able locations, rehearsal spaces, gear to buy/sell/trade, local events (like our Theatre, schools, churches, etc) which need musicians?

We NEED music in this community – and more of it, and we need musicians!! We need songwriters, composers, artists, poets, literary magicians, fantastical thinkers, and day-dreamers!! We need YOU!!!

Why sit at home on a Thursday night when you can be out living your dream, or simply enjoying an evening with other like-minded persons. Harvest Cafe is a great location with indoor and outdoor seating, food, beverages, and a great atmosphere.

More to come.
I will be sharing and posting regularly from here on, and a page and community group will come. This is not about myself, nor you – it is about WE as a musical community!! This is about sharing the artistic richness we have in abundance in Shelbyville, Kentucky WITH one another, instead of hiding in our bedrooms and garages!!!

Reach out to me here on Facebook to find out how you can become involved!!

Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, Big Fish centers on Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest… and then some! Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him – most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales.

7:00 – 8:00 pm – Adolph Rupp: The Coach, at the Anderson County Senior Center, 160 Township Sq., Lawrenceburg

Kentucky Chautauqua Presents on October 24, 2017
Dr. Edward Smith
As
Adolph Rupp: The Coach

On Tuesday evening, October 24, 2017, the Kentucky Humanities Council will provide community residents with an opportunity to spend some quality time with the legendary UK basketball coach, Adolph Rupp. Coach Rupp will interact with members of the community beginning at 7 p.m. at the Anderson County Senior Citizen Center located at 160 Township Square in Lawrenceburg.

During the 42 years he coached at the University of Kentucky, Adolph Rupp (1901-1977) raised basketball to near-religious status in the Commonwealth. Basketball took its place next to horses, coal, and bourbon as one of the cultural icons that characterizes the state. Rupp’s teams won 880 games, four national championships, and one Olympic gold medal. There was a flip-side to all this success – the Kentucky team was suspended for the 1952-53 season after a point-shaving scandal, and Rupp was heavily criticized for taking so long to integrate his program.

Adolph Rupp grew up in Kansas, the son of immigrant farmers. He played three years of varsity basketball at the University of Kansas, but never scored a point. He began his coaching career in Kansas, but soon moved on to Iowa and then Illinois. The University of Kentucky hired him in 1930. Rupp’s genius for public relations and his team’s winning ways combined to make Kentucky basketball a statewide phenomenon, a point of pride around which Kentuckians still rally.

Dr. Edward B. Smith portrays Adolph Rupp for a Kentucky Chautauqua. A long time Kentucky resident living in Cynthia, Smith earned a Ph.D. in performance studies from the University of Texas at Austin, and currently teaches theatre and film classes at Georgetown College, where he is an associate professor.

The program is a presentation of the Kentucky Humanities Council, with local sponsorship provided by Anderson Community Education. Admission is free and open to the public.

For more information please contact: Elizabeth Swartz, Community Education Director 839-3754

7:00 pm – Trivia hosted by Jamey Wiglesworth, at Buddy’s Pizza, 212 W Broadway. Cash prizes for 1st and 2nd place! Happy Hour everyday 4:00-7:00 p.m. with $1 off all craft draft beer. Info: 352-2920.
