Southern Stories + Sing-Along
Felix C. Davis Community Center, 4800 Park Circle
North Charleston, SC 29405
According to Storyteller Tim Lowry, “a well-told story is the pure cane sugar in the Sweet Tea of Life.” In his one-hour performance (6-7pm) called Sweet Tea Commentary – Serious Subjects . . . Sugared Up!, Tim serves a refreshing brew of historic facts, regional folk tales, and personal narratives garnished with poetic language that is never saccharine, but unmistakably Southern. Stories include: Back Surgery, Sweet Tea and Jesus, Brer Rabbit for President, Watermelon Time, and Old Folks at the DMV. The program appeals mainly to an adult audience, but is appropriate for families with children ten and older. From 7-8pm, Ross, Holler & Lewis will take the stage to present Sweet Harmony: A Community Sing-Along. The newly formed trio features Jill Terhaar Lewis, soprano; Lindsay Holler, alto and guitar; and Tyler Ross, tenor and guitar. Using an eclectic book of songs mixing genres and decades, this trio will lead the audience in a fun program of community-building group singing. Sweet tea and light refreshments will be served.
