“Saving Place” at Carson-Newman
June 5, 2012 @ 10:30 pm – June 6, 2012 @ 12:30 am
“Saving Place: Reflections on Home, Community and the Environment Through Music and Spoken Word” will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 5 at the Thomas Recital Hall on the campus of Carson-Newman College, presented by The Bonner Center for Service Learning and Civic Engagement, the Lindquist Environmental Appalachian Fellowship and the Mossy Creek Network.
The presentation will feature performances by some of East Tennessee’s finest songwriters including Jack Herranen, Kevin Abernathy and members of the Lonetones (Steph Gunnoe and Sean McCollough).
Also featured will be Knoxville’s inspired spoken-word artist Black Atticus and acclaimed West Virginia poet Chris Green who will moderate the event. Bios of all of the artists are included below.
The artists will perform songs and poems that relate to “place” – in particular Appalachia as a complicated place to live in or be from. Issues such as identity, belonging, tradition, change and environmental destruction will be explored as these talented individuals share their art and engage in a give and take about how their art reflects the place they are from.
