Music with Angela Faye Martin Thursday, Sept. 18, at 7 p.m. in the Macon County Public Library Meeting Room.

Martin’s songs draw on both the mysterious and familiar qualities of the Southern Appalachian Mountains.

They are hymns of grief; they are rock spells against the enemies of Mother Nature; they are cave paintings to remind future listeners that someone was here, someone cared about this place.

Alli Marshall of Mountain Xpress wrote- “… hers is a unique voice and style that draws on deep roots and deeper mysticism.”
