On Saturday, August 18th The Shakori Hills Community Arts Center will be holding our 3rd Annual North Carolina Stars in the Round Fundraiser. It will be the perfect way to spend a summer night with old friends and festival family! All proceeds will go toward the purchase of the land for the arts center. Once SHCAC owns the land, we’ll have more freedom and infrastructure to carry on our mission of being a center for arts education and community building for Chatham County and beyond.
The evening’s highlight will be a singer-songwriter circle featuring Andrew Marlin (of Mandolin Orange), Greg Humphreys (of Hobex), Lynn Blakey (of Tres Chicas), Christy Smith (of The Tender Fruit), Lizzy Ross, Randy Dean Whitt, Crys Matthews, and Alex Hall. Each songwriter will share their unique musical talents one song at a time, then pass the mic to the next. With this lineup of unique musicians, there should be some very special musical moments!
After the circle, Chapel Hill’s The Ayr Mountaineers will share their summery brand of sweet Americana. This band has been coming to Shakori Hills in some form since the beginning, and we’re excited to have them as part of our musical family.
There will be pizza from the Shakori Hills Pizza Shack, beer from Carolina Brewery, local ice cream, and the Lil’ Coffee Barn will be open with coffee and snacks. This is a family-friendly event (kids 12 and under are free), and all are welcome to camp overnight on Saturday.
