Native American Singer to Perform at AU

Michael Jacobs, an award-winning Cherokee contemporary recording artist from Milwaukee, will be performing in the Merritt Theater at Anderson University on Tuesday, February 23 at 7:00 pm. His music is a mixture of Native American, rock, pop, and folk, and it fuses contemporary and traditional sounds and is filled with powerful imagery. His songs address human issues: peace, justice, suffering, the environment, relationships, and wholeness, as well as provide insights on the Native American culture.

Michael’s debut solo CD, Sacred Nation, received a 2003 Native American Music Award and his remarkable follow-up recording, They Come Dancing, was nominated in 2004. JPoet of Native Peoples magazine writes, “Michael Jacobs has a big, raspy voice, one that often draws comparisons to Don Henley, and he sings with an understated power that gives every lyric the ring of truth.”

Artist Guild Teams Up with Electric City Playhouse

The Anderson Artist Guild and the Electric City Playhouse have teamed up to provide more exposure to the arts than they could have done individually. During each of the 2010 Electric City Playhouse season plays, a different artist from the Anderson Artist Guild will be on display in the Electric City Playhouse lobby. Myrl Garment, whose recent accomplishments include a Purchase Prize, First Prize at the Festival of Flowers in Greenwood , and whose art is on permanent display as part at the Belton Art Center, will be showing a selection of her work during the run of the Electric City Playhouse’s Man of Constant Sorrow, A Stanley Brothers Musical.

The live bluegrass music and Myrl’s art represent extremely complicated pieces that, when done correctly, come off as natural and effortless as good art should. So as money remains tight in this tough economic climate, the arts are still finding a way to reach out to an audience. The combining of artistic forces between the Artist Guild and ECP shows their commitment to continue to blend the arts, regardless of medium, into the landscape of Anderson.

Honea Path Civitans Honor Les Giffin by Supporting Haiti

On Thursday, February 11th, the Honea Path Civitans presented a check for $600 to Dr. Harold Morse, representing Partners in Health. The gift was given to honor longtime Civitan and Honea Path native, John Leslie “Les” Giffin. Funds will be used to purchase medical supplies for a surgical team that he will accompany to Haiti on March 10th.

“Les has meant so much to Honea Path,” said Earle Ashley, Civitan treasurer and loan officer for Commercial Bank. “The greatest testament to his servant leadership is the strength of the Belton-Honea Path Junior Civitans, which he started. Young people are our future leaders and the BHP Junior Civitans are already leading by example in everything they do.”

“We wanted to honor Les Griffin for his 40+ years of service as a Civitan,” said Dr. Kent Jenkins. “Since his life has been one of service to his fellow man, what better way to honor him than to give to this organization that is committed to helping those who are in need.”
