Six String Presents The Wyatt Easterling Band

Wyatt first came to Nashville as a folk singer on the verge of signing with CBS Records, but in true industry fashion, Sony acquired the label, and the deal fell through. Undeterred, he signed on as a writer with a new publishing company opened by former CBS label head Rick Blackburn.After a couple of years there, Blackburn brought him on as head of A&R at Atlantic Records where Wyatt signed some of country music’s biggest names including John Michael Montgomery, Tracy Lawrence, Michael Johnson and Neal McCoy. He also began working as a producer, guiding Montgomery’s debut album Life’s A Dance to an impressive three million copies sold. After Atlantic, Wyatt opened Bugle Publishing Group with partner Miles Copeland, where he signed a number of artists, most notably Keith Urban and Paul Thorn. At Bugle, Wyatt also produced Thorn’s debut album Hammer and Nail and got the future superstar Urban his first record deal. During that period, Wyatt and Miles had the inventive idea to turn a chateau in the south of France into a writers’ den they called “The Castle” where they began pairing their Nashville songwriters with big name artists like Carole King, Cher, Peter Frampton and Olivia Newton John. In time, Wyatt was ready to move on from the publishing world, and he signed as a writer with DreamWorks Publishing, API and EMI where he had numerous songs recorded by the likes of Dierks Bentley and Joe Diffie, including the gorgeous title track from Bentley’s album Modern Day Drifter. After all of his time navigating the many facets of the music industry, it turns out his true destination was in fact to be a singer-songwriter. He started touring, including consecutive appearances as a finalist in the prestigious Kerrville New Folk contest, and he’s since recorded his two beautiful albums Where This River Goes and Goodbye, Hello. And now happily we have a third collection of songs by Wyatt Easterling in Divining Rod that we can all listen to it for years to come.

Stageworks Theatre presents “Harold and Maude” by Colin Higgins

  • 300 West Ballentine Street Holly Springs, NC, 27540 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

**Can’t make to a performance that weekend? Stageworks Theatre will continue a second week of performances at the Fuquay Arts Center on June 13 – 15, 2019!**

This is a stage adaptation of the movie about the suicidal 19 year old boy who finally learns how to truly live when he meets that delightfully wacky octogenarian, Maude. Harold is the proverbial poor little rich kid. His alienation has caused him to attempt suicide several times, though these incidents are more cries for attention than actual attempts. His peculiar attachment to Maude, whom he meets at a funeral (a mutual passion) is what saves him and what captivates us. This stage version, a hit in France directed by the internationally renowned Jean Louis Barrault, will certainly delight both aficionados of the film and new comers to the story.

Tickets: $14 Adults; $12 Seniors and Students; $10 Season Subscription and Groups (10+)

Feline Fundamentals: Cat Enrichment

It’s no secret – cats get bored, and bored kitties can do bad things. Enrichment can be as simple as finding the perfect toy or as complex as teaching your cat tricks through the use of clickers. Learn some strategies for keeping kitties interested and curious at every stage of their lives.

Keeping kitties engaged and active throughout their lives is just as important as a good diet and regular medical care. We will discuss the environmental enrichment and needs of cats including inexpensive methods to reduce negative behaviors and stress in multi-cat households. We will also demonstrate clicker training for cats. At the end of the session, participants will be able to introduce new enrichment activities to their cats and kittens. We’re putting the FUN back into Feline Fundamentals!

Comedy Night with Nathan Timmel and Jeremy Alder

Nathan Timmel is a 15-year comedy veteran who has headlined comedy clubs across the country, recorded several comedy CDs (with regular airplay on Sirius/XM), blogs for The Huffington Post, The Good Men Project, and Rooftop Comedy, visited the Bob & Tom Show three times, and been overseas to perform for American troops nine times—including stops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
With a set that’s well-crafted, clever, and genuine, Nathan’s act is a mix of high-brow thinkers and accessible straight-ahead jokes. He keeps audiences on their toes, transitioning seamlessly from loving husband and father to gritty analyst of politics and human nature. He finds humor in everything, from making babies to overcrowded prisons, creating comedy that’s intelligent, fun, and engaging with a sprinkling of raucousness. A talented storyteller, he builds on real-life anecdotes that draw you in before hitting you with the punch line you didn’t see coming. He’s not afraid of using his own life, from his oddball father to his diva toddler, to get you laughing. By the end of his set, he’ll leave you wanting more jokes (and his Twitter handle).

Jeremy Alder is a standup comedian based in Raleigh, North Carolina, but more importantly, a dad (his kids are watching as he writes this). A recovering homeschooler, former preacher, and ex-husband, Jeremy mines his own weird, poorly-planned life for hilarious effect. Jeremy has worked with a number of national touring acts, including Rita Rudner, Aparna Nancherla, Chad Daniels, Shane Torres, Josh Gondelman, Dusty Slay, and Caleb Synan. In addition to being a finalist in the 2018 NC’s Funniest Comic competition, he is a regular at Goodnight’s Comedy Club in Raleigh, NC and has been selected for the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, Westside Standup Showdown, Yuck Fest, North Carolina Comedy Festival, Oak City Comedy Festival.

Will Call tickets may be picked up at The Cary starting one hour prior to the performance.
