Music and poetry at the Rickman Store

The Friends of the Rickman Store will be hosting a forum for music and poetry at 7 p.m. on June 24, at the store in Franklin. Performers such as Steve Brady, Angela Faye Martin and many more will take the stage.

All are encouraged to come out to the store, dust off that flat-top or bring out some of that stowed poetry you would like to share among neighbors, songwriters, poets and local talents.  Short stories are welcome, too. The time of each presentation will be kept to around 15 minutes to increase the chance that everyone gets a chance to present. To sign up ahead of time, call 828.369.5595 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
