Pennyroyal Arts Council

Youth Art Month Reception

Youth Art Month is an annual part of the smARTS program where we ask all area schools’ art teachers to submit a selection of their students’ best work. Arts education is important and we love to support our community’s budding artists and the great teachers who help them discover their passions and abilities.

Artwork in this exhibit will be displayed throughout the month of March. This year’s reception will take place on Thursday, March 7th at 5 PM where all of the participants will be honored.

Missoula Children’s Theatre: Robin Hood Performance

Tickets $8 | Doors Open at 6 PM
Sponsored by Flynn Enterprises

The time is simply long ago and the place is the magical, mythical Sherwood Forest. Our hero, Robin Hood, and his Merry Band of colorful characters seek the help of the Foresters, manage to waylay the Aristocrats and set out to rescue Maid Marion and Marion’s Maid. Prince John tries to stay calm as his Sheriff, guards and horsemen botch Robin’s arrest thanks to the aromatic Skunks. Wacky humor and an original score add to this fresh new look at a legendary outlaw in a legendary time. Come see some local children starring in a fun and quirky production!

What’s Happening at Home While There is a War in Vietnam? (BD)

Book Discussion Lead by Wayne Goolsby

What was happening at home while there were those fighting a war they didn’t understand? LBJ’s decisions, and those of the
men around him, affected the theme, as well as content of the
book although we may not have noticed it at the time.
The power of hindsight is an underlying thread in the book.
We’ll look at the role of LBJ in this eventful period in our history.

The SteelDrivers at Hoptown Hopfest

Presented by Hand Family Companies/Budweiser of Hopkinsville. Thanks to our sponsors for making this event possible: Atmos Energy, Christian County Fiscal Court, City of Hopkinsville, Hopkinsville Electric System, Heritage Bank, Hopkinsville Water Environment Authority, Pennyrile Electric, Rogers Group, WHOP/Lite 98.7, WHVO, and WKDZ.

Join us for our annual Hopfest, headed this year by Grammy award-winning artists The SteelDrivers.

It’s a sound The Tennessean once described as “Gutsy, gritty bluegrass songs.” The Philadelphia Inquirer put it even more succinctly. “You can call it power-bluegrass or country soul, but whatever you call it, Nashville’s Steeldrivers have bushels of it.”In fact, The SteelDrivers’ success lies in their consistent growth and ability to reinvent their regimen.

It’s also nurtured the various influences that each member brings to the band. With the emphasis on song structure as to parceling out their parameters, elements of Americana, country, blues, rock and soul all enter the equation. Yet their consistent standing at the IBMA awards –which began when they were voted Best Emerging Artist — testifies to the fact that they’ve been able to maintain a fierce following even while growing their audiences at every interval.

The band plays approximately 75 shows a year, including major festival appearances at Bonnaroo, Merlefest, Wintergrass, Bristol Rhythm and Roots and Telluride Bluegrass Festival. It’s their populist approach that finds their devotees — self-proclaimed “SteelHeads”– traveling hundreds of miles to see them in repeat performances. “It’s hard to believe it’s been ten years since our first album,” Rogers muses. “And yet, even with all the change and transition, we still have the same joy and enthusiasm that we did in the beginning. Even as the trajectory changes, the story continues to unfold.”
