PRESTONSBURG – National singer and songwriter Tyler Childers will kick off the Fall Artist Series in the Gearheart Auditorium on the Prestonsburg campus of Big Sandy Community and Technical College (BSCTC) at 7 p.m., Thursday, November 12.
The series, sponsored by the BSCTC Fine Arts department and the Mountain Arts Center, will feature four shows and highlight three Kentucky artists: Tyler Childers, Josh Martin (November 19) and Brittany Taylor (November 24). The final show will highlight the Prestonsburg Songwriters Series on December 3.
“This is an opportunity to not only hear some great music, but to learn and better understand the craft of song writing,” said Clayton Case, director of Fine Arts at BSCTC. “We are thrilled to have the caliber of artists and writers on our stage.”
Tickets are $10 each or $30 for all four shows. They can be purchased at the Mountain Arts Center, online at www.macarts.com or by phone at 1-888-MAC-ARTS. All funds raised by the events will go to the BSCTC Big Sandy Singers Scholarship Fund.
Childers, who is from Paintsville, has exploded on to the national music scene, drawing comparisons to Keith Whitley and Ricky Skaggs. He has released three albums “Live on Red Barn Radio,” “Live on Red Barn Radio II” and “Bottles and Bibles.”
