  • Blue Highway at Chuck Mathena Center

    July 23, 2016 — Princeton, Mercer

    The award winning bluegrass band, Blue Highway, will take the stage at the Chuck Mathena Center on Saturday, July 23 at 7pm.

    July 23 at the Chuck Mathena Center.

    There is no doubt that Blue Highway is one of the finest bluegrass bands around today. The highly esteemed group has earned 25 collective IBMA awards among its members and was voted Favorite Bluegrass Group of All Time by the readers of Bluegrass Today, April 2016.

    Blue Highway is praised by peers, fans and media alike. One of the most powerful descriptions of the 22-year strong band is shared by Country Standard Time News Magazine, “Wayne Taylor sings with the emotion of a man who escaped the coals mines and ain’t planning to go back. Tim Stafford continues to craft songs with depth…the instrumentation is perfect. From the get go, Jason Burleson opens with the unique style that defines bluegrass banjo. Shawn Lane exemplifies modern mandolin, yet nods to the Monroe legacy. Three lead singers…rich harmony…songs of forgotten homeless veterans, fallen heroes and heartbroken families. Blue Highway personifies modern acoustic music with respect to the tradition. Highly recommended, highly respected.”

    Tickets are on sale now at Chuck Mathena Center, 2 Stafford Commons, Princeton, WV 24739. You can purchase tickets online at www.chuckmathenacenter.org or by calling the Box Office at 304 425-5128. All tickets are $25. A ten percent discount is available to groups of ten or more.

  • Archives and History Block Speaker Series: Gary Mays

    July 28, 2016 — Charleston, Kanawha

    On Thursday, July 28, 2016, Garrett “Gary” Mays will present “African American Life: A Personal Perspective” in the Archives and History Library in the Culture Center in Charleston. The program, which is the third of the 2016 Block Speakers Series, will begin at 6:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

    Gary Mays, “The One Arm Bandit,” was born in Burnwell, a coal mining town in Kanawha County, on March 26, 1935. At the age of five, he lost his left arm in a shotgun accident. When he was 12, he moved to the northeast section of Washington, DC, where he started playing baseball at Logan Community Center.

    Mays attended Armstrong Technical High School where he displayed his athletic skills playing baseball and basketball. It was Mays’ basketball coach Charlie Baltimore who gave him the nickname “The One Arm Bandit” because of his ability to steal the ball.

    In 1954, Armstrong and Spingarn high schools played each other for the Inter-High Division II Basketball Tournament title. Spingarn was undefeated, and its star player, Elgin Baylor, had averaged more than 40 points in the school’s two victories over Armstrong during the regular season. Armstrong’s coach instructed his players to use a zone defense with the exception of Gary Mays, who was told to play “man-to-man” defense against Baylor. Armstrong managed to beat Spingarn 50 to 47, with Baylor only scoring 18 points.

    The following year, Gary Mays attended the Washington Senators annual tryout camp at Griffith Stadium. Although he was not signed by the Senators, Mays, who threw out a base runner and hit the only home run in a camp-closing scrimmage, was unanimously voted camp MVP.

    Mays attended The College of Idaho in Caldwell, Idaho, and went on to become a liquor store owner and cab, bus, and limousine driver. He was building chairman for the DC Chapter of Habitat for Humanity and the owner of his own construction company. Mays currently is vice president of the Armstrong Alumni Association.

    Participants may park behind the Culture Center after 5:00 p.m. on July 28 and enter the building at the back loading dock area. There also is limited handicapped parking available in the new bus turnaround.

    For additional information, call (304) 558-0230.
