  • Bessie's Blues at Tamarack

    November 03, 2018 — Beckley, Raleigh

    Lady D returns to the Tamarack stage with her one-woman show, “Bessie’s Blues;” the abbreviated production of her original play, “The Lady and the Empress.” Based on the life and music of the Empress of the Blues, “Bessie’s Blues” differs from the original show only in the length and the use of only one musician. Saturday, November 3, 2018, 1 PM – 3:30 PM

    Relive the 20’s and 30’s along with Bessie as she recalls life on the “Chitlin’ Circuit” and the Jim Crow South. Hear tunes that may sound familiar as they have been covered by many artists over the past almost 100 years. Songs like “Dirty No-Gooders Blues,” “I Ain’t Got Nobody” and “Gimme A Pigfoot.” are staples of the Bessie Smith catalogue.

    Bessie Smith earned the title of “Empress of the Blues” by virtue of her forceful vocal delivery and command of the genre. Her singing displayed a soulfully phrased, boldly delivered and nearly definitive grasp of the blues. In addition, she was an all-around entertainer who danced, acted and performed comedy routines with her touring company. She was the highest-paid black performer of her day and arguably reached a level of success greater than that of any African-American entertainer before her.

    This event is FREE to the public!

  • The Beach Boys - Brian Wilson, Al Jardine & Blondie Chaplin LIVE: Marshall Artists Series

    November 06, 2018 — Huntington, Cabell

    Tuesday, November 6 at 7:30 PM – 10:30 PM

    Keith Albee Performing Arts Center

    925 4th Avenue, Huntington, West Virginia 25701

    The Keith-Albee will be filled with the sounds of summer as Brian Wilson and The Beach Boys perform hits we all know and love. This tour features Wilson and his band, including longtime Beach Boys members Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin, performing tunes from throughout their career.

    American songwriter, producer, arranger and musician, co-founder and leader of The Beach Boys, Brian Wilson is a deeply revered figure in popular music, the main creative force behind some of the most cherished recordings in rock history. He was barely out of his teens when he started to make gold albums featuring classics like “Surfer Girl,” “In My Room,” “I Get Around,” and “Don’t Worry Baby.” Wilson’s ground-breaking work on the album, Pet Sounds, and the single, “Good Vibrations,” re-wrote the rules of what a pop album or single could be. His solo record SMiLE, released in 2004, had been anticipated by music fans since the late 1960s.

    Wilson is a Kennedy Center Honors recipient, a Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, and a multiple GRAMMY Award winner. With the Beach Boys, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and honored with The Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001.

  • Creators Talk: "Sharing West Virginia Stories- Traveling with Brad Rice"

    November 07, 2018 — Charleston, Kanawha

    After showing a few examples of his favorite stories for WCHS, and a snippet or two from his documentary projects, Rice will take questions about his career traveling the back roads of West Virginia. Artists, authors, cool things in general are all fair game for his Traveling West Virginia segment. Inspired at an early age by the images in West Virginia magazine, and running the roads fishing and hiking with his grandfather and dad, Brad has been fortunate enough to work in the news business and produce weekly features that expose our unique Appalachian culture to a larger audience.


    After graduating from West Virginia State University in 1987 with a degree in Communications, Brad Rice is now a 25 year award winning photojournalist with WCHS-TV in Charleston, WV. Covering everything from natural disasters, political races, industrial accidents, and daily news assignments. His experience and performance lead him to two weekly franchise segments, West Virginia Wildlife and Traveling West Virginia. Rice has earned numerous Associated Press and West Virginia Broadcasters Association awards for his work, and was the recipient of an Emmy Award in 2007. His 2015 documentary “Swiss Family Balli” was broadcast statewide on West Virginia Public Television, and was selected by the West Virginia Film Makers Festival and The West Virginia International Film Festival. Rice was also the director of photography for “The Stewards of Shavers Fork” a documentary produced by The Canaan Valley Institute, West Virginia University, and The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources.
