SMN showed great support for library

Written by 

To the Editor:

As the opening of the new Jackson County Library Complex draws near, it brings to mind the many contributions The Smoky Mountain News made during difficult as well as good times. From timely editorials, feature articles, and the printing of many letters, this newspaper truly served the community as it fostered a gorgeous new facility.

I am especially appreciative of the feature article regarding “The Sounds of Jackson County” which appeared five years and six months ago. I call attention to a mini “Sounds of Jackson County” to be performed this coming Saturday evening (June 11) at 7 p.m. in the new community room at the library. Performers are Will Peebles with the GamelanGunung Biru (Blue Ridge Gamelan), the Deitz Family Band, Liberty Baptist Choir, “Sugar” Barnes with Dave Magill, the Smoky Mountain Brass Quintet, and the Sweet Tater Band with Betty Brown.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceIt’s not only a time capsule, but also a window into the future.

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
