Now Showing in The Depot Gallery - "Haunting the Mind: Beings That Fly"

Through February 26, 2016 @ The Depot

free
Connie Seabourne

“I’ve always been intrigued by flying and dreams of flying; many of my works picture flying people, as well as birds and winged insects. Most of my work is ethereal, dreamy, and narrative” says Connie Seabourn, who became a full-time artist in 1980. Connie works in acrylic, watercolor, pastel and prints, but is perhaps best known for her delicate watercolors and bright, bold serigraphs. Connie has exhibited extensively, is in many notable collections, and has won numerous awards.

buy tickets
Bill "Watermelon Slim" Homans has built a remarkable reputation with his raw, impassioned intensity. HARP Magazine wrote "From sizzling slide guitar...to nitty-gritty harp blowing...to a gruff, resonating Okie twang, Slim delivers acutely personal workingman blues with both hands on the wheel of life, a bottle of hooch in his pocket, and the Bible on the passenger seat." Paste Magazine writes "He's one hell of a bottleneck guitarist, and he's got that cry in his voice that only the greatest singers in the genre have had before him."

Ellis Paul - Winter Wind Concert

Sunday, March 6, 2016 7:00pm @ The Depot

buy tickets
Ellis Paul is one of those gifted singer/songwriters.Though some may refer to him as a folksinger, he is more, for lack of a better word, a singular storyteller, a musician whose words reach out from inside and yet also express the feelings, thoughts and sensibilities that most people can relate to in one way or another, regardless of age or upbringing. The exhilaration of the open road. A ​celebration of heroes.​ ​The hope for redemption. Descriptions of those things that are both near and dear. The sharing of love..., intimate, passionate and enduring.
