Arts & Entertainment

The Concerts on the Creek summer music series returns for its fourth season in May featuring live bands each Friday evening from Memorial Day weekend through the end of July.

The free outdoor performances take place at the Bridge Park Pavilion beside Scott Creek in downtown Sylva on Fridays from 7:30-9:30 p.m. All shows are family-friendly, drawing diverse audiences comprised of locals and visitors alike.

This year’s lineup traverses the musical spectrum with bluegrass, beach, mountain rock, oldies, country, gospel, and a healthy dose of the 1970’s.


Macon County citizens joined together last Saturday night at Franklin High School’s Fine Arts Center to raise money for Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society.

Guests enjoyed music from local musicians such as Keirsten Hedden, Curtis Blackwell and Band, The Gospel Mountaineers, Donny Clay and Conrad Hefner, When Clay wasn’t performing with Hefner, he entertained the crowd at the MC.



Chicks! It’s All Gone to the Birds opens at The Bascom on March 31 and runs through June 17. Join us in celebrating the fascinating world of our feathered friends. A true celebration of the freedom of flight, this exhibition is presented in partnership with the Highands Biological Station and the Highlands Plateau Audubon Society. Support for this exhibition is provided by Nancy and Larry Fuller; Audubon North Carolina; and Delta Air Lines.

In conjunction with the exhibition, The Bascom is hosting a number of “avian” related programs.


A warm, funny play adapted from Mark Twain’s Diaries of Adam and Eve will be presented for one performance only on Sunday April 1 at 2:30 by the Licklog Players. Directed by the wonderful Edie Kleinpeter, the play will be the first event in the Players new Creek Side venue. This play is a special extra event and precedes the opening play of the 2012 season, “The Fantasticks.”

Two of Licklogs most popular actors, Michael Lindsay and Debbi Timson play Adam and Eve. Lisa Maliska will play the Serpent.

Theater goers may remember Lindsay and Timson in last year’s “Wait Until Dark.”
