Six String Presents Michael Reno Harrell & Doug MacLeod

Michael Reno Harrell is an award-winning songwriter, veteran storyteller and entertainer from the southern Appalachian Mountains. His performances are like his granddaddy’s pocket knife – a well-worn and familiar feeling, but razor sharp and with a point. His recordings top the Americana Music Association charts year after year, and his original songs and stories have been described as “Appalachian grit and wit.” However, as his writing shows, his awareness is much broader than the bounds of his boyhood home or even the Southern experience. Having toured throughout the U.S., the British Isles and much of Europe, the songs he writes and the stories he creates reflect an insight into people’s experiences. His natural knack for storytelling, in print, song and spoken word, has earned him praise from not only the music community but also from the literary and storytelling worlds as well. He’s been a Featured Teller at the National Storytelling Festival and a Teller In Residence at the International Storytelling Center, as well as performing at major music events like MerleFest and the Walnut Valley Festival. He often conducts workshops in songwriting and storytelling. For years, he has received awards in Country, Americana and Folk circles for his recordings. His humor and wit, as well as the emotional depth of his work, keep his fan base growing and staying tuned in for whatever comes next.
Don’t miss the chance to experience what those faithful fans keep returning to enjoy

“Like all great blues men, MacLeod lives his music, and the songs are not just on the tips of his fingers and tongue, they are one with his being.” – Blues Music Magazine

MacLeod is known for his superb songwriting, guitar wizardry, warm soulful vocals, wit and unforgettable live performances.
At the heart of his performances is his knack for storytelling, bringing characters, from the faceless to the legendary, to strikingly real life. He is a multiple Blues Music Award winner, and most recently won the 2018 Blues Music Award for Acoustic Album Of The Year “Break The Chain” and the 2017 Blues Music Award for Acoustic Artist Of The Year. He is an international touring artist who writes and sings original songs that are based on his own life and experiences. As a youth, he overcame abuse and a crippling stutter by turning to music. After picking up a guitar and singing, he found his voice. MacLeod’s playing landed him sideman gigs with George “Harmonica” Smith, Big Joe Turner, Pee Wee Crayton, Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, Lowell Fulson and Big Mama Thornton. Over 30 years, he has had 21 studio albums, several live records, compilations, a blues guitar instructional DVD and a live performance DVD and has consistently earned raves. His songs have been covered by many artist,s including Albert King, Albert Collins, Joe Louis Walker and Eva Cassidy. MacLeod’s songs have been featured in many TV movies and the hit show “In the Heat of the Night.” August Wilson requested his soulful slide guitar playing in the Los Angeles opening of “Gem of the Ocean.”

Bella Rose Strides for Babies 5K & Fun Run

  • 201 Soccer Park Drive Cary, NC, 27511 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Bella Rose Strides for Babies 5K is a run/walk with proceeds benefiting First Candle held every August at the Wake Med Soccer Park in Cary, NC in honor of Bella Rose Diaz.

In May of 2011, tragedy struck the Carolina Family Practice and Sports Medicine family when Amy Diaz, one of our beloved employees, suffered the heartbreaking loss of her beautiful and charismatic baby daughter Bella Rose to the dreadful mystery that is Sudden Infant Death Syndrome or SIDS. To honor her, Carolina Family Practice and Sports Medicine worked first with the CJ Foundation for SIDS, and now First Candle to organize the Bella Rose Strides for Babies 5K. In 6 years, the event has raised over $140,000 for the cause. We hope to have another great event this year further helping to promote awareness and fund research for SIDS.

Runner attempts 27-hour race for addiction

To mark his 27th year of recovery and to help raise awareness for the opioid crisis – and local organizations like Healing Transitions that are working to help others recover from addiction – ultra-marathoner Charlie Engle will run 27 hours continuously through Dorothea Dix Park. The event is timed with the 27th anniversary of Engle’s recovery, and everyone in the community is invited join the event for free, running or walking alongside him for as long as they’d like to encourage him! This is Charlie’s second year attempting this feat. In 2018, he ran 118 miles over 26 hours to celebrate his 26th year in recovery.

Engle is a runner and writer who began his recovery on July 23, 1992. His memoir, “Running Man,” shares more of his powerful story, including one of his greatest running accomplishments, running across the Sahara Desert. On running, he’s said “Running is at the core of my vitality and enduring sobriety.” He’s been interviewed by the New York Times, CNN, Runner’s World, ESPN, and others. Charlie and his wife live in Raleigh.

The event begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday, August 3 – 11 a.m. on Sunday, August 4. Charlie will run a continuous 3-mile loop through the park for 27 hours without stopping.

Movie Premiere of “400 Feet Down: Misguided Authority and the Fight to #StopRDUQuarry”

Seen the #stoprduquarry signs around town? Wondering what it's all about? What if there was a movie that explained all of it?

Two non-profits, a local homeowner and resident of Raleigh, are standing against a backroom deal to give away our public lands to a stone quarry. With litigation and court dates getting closer for them...time is of the essence for the public to become informed about how the "lease" of the OddFellows Tract affects our entire RDU community, greenways, Umstead State Park and Crabtree Creek.

There is much more to this true story than a simple business arrangement between RDU Airport and Wake Stone Quarry.

"400 Feet Down: Misguided Authority and the Fight to #stoprduquarry" will tell this story.

Join us to learn more about this important issue, hear from community leaders who oppose the RDU Quarry and find out what you can do to help.
