Pittsboro, NC – Join the Chatham Arts Council for the 46th Anniversary Concert of the Bluegrass Experience. Thanks to Opus Financial Advisors and our other arts-lovin’ sponsors, it’s going to be a fabulous afternoon.

The event will take place on Sunday, November 19 at the Fearrington Barn in Chatham County’s Fearrington Village.

You can purchase advance tickets at McIntyre’s Books in Fearrington or online at bluegrass2017.brownpapertickets.com/. Tickets are $16 in advance or $20 at the door for adults. Tickets for kids (ages 3-12) are $8.

Why: Reason #1: Because 46 years of playing together makes a band really dang good. The Bluegrass Experience’s current band members Tommy Edwards, Snuffy Smith, Keith Thomas, Stan Brown, and Michael Aldridge and former members “Fiddlin Al” McCanless, Leroy Savage, Jimmy Cameron.

During it’s 46 years of existence, the band has fielded a total of only 12 members. Of the six founders (photo on the left), three have passed on and two, guitarist Edwards and bassist Thomas “Snuffy” Smith, remain with the group to this day. They have four albums to their credit.

The band plays bluegrass with the traditional instruments (banjo, guitar, fiddle, mandolin and bass) but sometimes “reinterpret” rock, folk or country songs in a bluegrass fashion. They play original tunes and covers of traditional favorites,

Bland Simpson will be the master of ceremonies this year.

Reason #2: Because proceeds from the concert will benefit Chatham County children through the Council’s Artists-in-Schools Initiative. The Bluegrass Experience, led by former Chatham County Schools teacher Tommy Edwards, believes in arts and education. They celebrate their 46th anniversary of making music together, and proceeds go to place more artists in more Chatham schools.

Chatham County, NC – McIntyre’s Books will kick off their first fall Cooks & Books event with Myron Mixon and Kelly Alexander. Myron is bringing his cooker and is smoking up some ribs for the crowd. Tickets are $75 and include a signed copy of BBQ Rules, dinner, a beer, service fee and tax. Click here or call McIntyre’s Books at 919.542.3030 to reserve.

BBQ RulesIn his latest book, Myron Mixon’s BBQ Rules: The Old School Guide to Smoking Meat, the New York Times bestselling author and star of Destination America’s BBQ Pitmasters goes back to the basics of backyard pit barbecuing, offering readers essential old-school barbecue techniques and 50 classic recipes.

In barbecue, “old-school” means cooking on a homemade coal-fired masonry pit, where the first step is burning wood to make your own coals, followed by shoveling those coals beneath the meat and smoking that meat until it acquires the distinct flavor only true pit-smoking can infuse. With easy-to-follow, straightforward instruction, America’s pitmaster shows you how and also demonstrates methods for cooking on traditional gas and charcoal grills common in most backyards. The book is divided into four parts — “Meat Helpers,” “The Hog,” “Birds,” “The Cow” — and features recipes and methods, including, Pit Smoked Pulled Pork, North Carolina Yella Mustard-Based Barbecue Sauce, Prize-winning Brisket, Smoked Baby Back Ribs, Thick and Smoky T-Bone Steaks.

Presenting step-by-step illustrations on building a pit, managing a fire, selecting meats for the pit and the best wood to burn in it, and more, Mixon offers all of the fundamental lessons to becoming a champion backyard pitmaster.

Filled with Mixon’s southern charm, personal stories, and never-before-shared methods, BBQ Rules is a down-home, accessible return to old-school pit smoked barbecue.

Myron Mixon has won more than 200 grand BBQ championships. He is the New York Times bestselling author of Smokin’ with Myron Mixon and Everyday Barbecue and the star of Destination America’s BBQ RulesBBQ Pitmasters, and BBQ Pit Wars. He lives in Unadilla, Georgia.

Kelly Alexander is a former Saveur senior editor and the winner of a James Beard Journalism Award. She lives in Durham, North Carolina, and teaches food writing at Duke University.

Pittsboro, NC – Chatham County resident and author Dori Ann Dupré signed copies of her debut novel, Scout’s Honor, at a book launch held at McIntyre’s Fine Books in Fearrington Village on May 1. Dupré read a brief passage from the novel. She then shared her publishing journey by answering questions from attendees.

The book launch ended with Dori’s husband Eric serving cake and refreshments while Dori autographed copies of her first book.

French Press Bookworks has released “Scout’s Honor”, the story of Scout Webb, a 14 year-old kind, spirited small town southern girl and a tomboy much like her namesake, the young narrator from her mother’s favorite book, on April 14 through major retailers. The book is also available at McIntyre’s.

Written through multiple narrators, the story follows Scout’s life after a catastrophic event during her last day at summer camp in 1983. It is “a story of a self, lost, a self, loathed and a self, re-discovered.”

Dupré, a Pittsboro resident and contemporary fiction writer, was born and raised in New Jersey. She graduated magna cum laude with a history degree and is a veteran of the United States Army. She currently works in the legal field and is a member of the North Carolina Writers Network.

Scout's Honor BookTo learn more about the author and Scout’s Honor, or to purchase the book online, visit DoriAnnDupre.com. Proceeds from the sales of the books will benefit colon cancer research and awareness efforts. Dupré adopted the cause after her husband was recently diagnosed with colon cancer.

Pittsboro, NC – McIntyre’s Books in Fearrington Village is the home of many a poetry reading and book signing and now it adds “The Eric Sommer Mother’s Day Concert” to its list of impressive events.  For the past 5 years Eric has played a special Mother’s Day Concert in Fearrington Village in honor of his mother, and Fearrington Resident, American Painter Joan Sommers. McIntyre’s Books is located at 220 Market Street, Fearrington Village, Pittsboro, NC 27312 and can be reached by telephone at (919) 542-3030.

eric sommerNow in its 6th year, this unique Concert Series has gained a large and loyal following, even though Joan Sommers passed away on Thanksgiving Day, 2014. This is due in no small part to Joan’s influence on the local arts community where she had been an active participant for more than a decade, but also to Eric’s national standing as one of the best singer/songwriters and guitar players on the road today.

“If there’s a place for musical perfection, it’s wherever you’ll find Eric Sommer – A blistering acoustic style plus a variety of slide and open tuning formats will knock you for a loop…” wrote Studdie Burns, Melody Hut UK in 2013. “How one guy can do this so well is remarkable, but when you look a little deeper there’s a batch of road miles around this lad… and it all makes sense.”

Eric started his musical career in the Boston area and has been a regular player on many national tours and showcases. He worked in Europe for two years with Nick Lowe and acts Bram Tchaikovsky and Wreckless Eric on Danish, German and British rock stages, returned to Boston and formed The Atomics, a cult power-pop band in South Boston and toured relentlessly with Mission of Burma, Gang of Four and The Dead Kennedys. His influences are as diverse as Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Steve Howe and The Ramones. Mr. Sommer’s current project with power trio “The Solar Flares” shake up Chet Atkins and David Bromberg influences with those of Randy Travis and British Rocker Elvis Costello – a remarkable mix.

Touring and managing a growing list of musical recordings keep Eric on the road almost 270 days a year, where he is becoming a regular on the Texas Red Dirt Circuit, playing with Bart Crow in Alpine Texas at The Railroad Blues and Aaron Einhorn in Wichita Falls, Texas in August at The Iron Horse. Not surprisingly, Eric is a regular player at venues up and down the Eastern seaboard as well. In July, Eric will be back in London supporting the 10th Anniversary of London’s Lantern Society as well as performing with The Rev. Peyton and His Big Damn Band in Oxford, UK on July 28th.

Currently Eric is in Chapel Hill, taking a few weeks off from touring while putting the finishing touches on his latest record which was just finished in Brooklyn at Room 17 Studios. He and Gretchen are keeping close to his Dad who, at 90 years old, lives in Fearrington Village as The Poet Laureate, and runs a Poetry Club on the third Wednesday of every month, now in it’s 10th year.

The May 8th Concert will feature a lot of new material of the upcoming record “Brooklyn Bolero” including the harmonica/scat tune “Cereal Song” as well as “Europe, Europe” from Rainy Day Karma, a 2014 release.

He has been on the road, in the studio, on stage, in front of or behind Jerry Douglas, Buddy Guy, Leon Redbone, John Mayall, Dr. John, David Bromberg, Andy McKee, John Hammond Jr., simply too many to name…

With open tunings, slide guitar, lap-slap tone guitar and a remarkably aggressive fingering style approach, watching Eric Sommer will make you jump out of your seat and holler for joy! There are very few players who have maintained this authentic American style of guitar and Eric Sommer is one of the very best.

Pittsboro, NC – The Fearrington House Restaurant in Chatham County, N.C. has landed on the Daily Meal’s 2016 list of the “101 Best Restaurants in America.”

fearrington house foodThe food and dining website sent a list of 638 restaurants to experts around the U.S., and their voting determined the rankings. The Fearrington House, associated with The Fearrington House Inn and located in Pittsboro, is No. 85 and the only N.C. restaurant on the list.

The Daily Meal’s review of the Fearrington House Restaurant reads:

Fearrington Village, not far from Raleigh-Durham, is a residential compound, a cluster of shops, a farm, a spa, a wedding venue, and an elegant Relais & Châteaux inn with a first-rate restaurant. The kitchen is the preserve of British-born chef Colin Bedford, who joined the property in 2005 and has been executive chef since 2008. His cooking is fairly elaborate and his plates are, shall we say, artistic, but he works with local seasonal ingredients and the accents are sometimes as much Southern as they are French. There’s something both homey and refined about his white bean and smoked bacon soup with melted onions and rosemary (and Parmigiano, apple, honey, and Brussels sprouts — see what we mean about elaborate?); he likes sweetness with his savory creations, like parsnips braised in golden syrup and buttermilk and served with ginger cake, pearl barley, prunes, and grapes, or brown-sugar-cured monkfish with parsnips and currants; his maple-glazed duck breast with sunchokes and blood orange goes earthy with hazelnuts, mushrooms, and collard greens. This is showy stuff, but somehow it all comes together very nicely. The handsome, opulently set dining rooms, the attentive service, and the serious wine list are all part of the recipe.

Pittsboro, NC – When we think of Afghanistan, most thoughts would immediately go to the conflict, turbulence and terrorism that have consumed this country for so long.  We would not necessarily think of “afghan blankets.”

The first reference to the “afghan” blanket in the English language can be traced back to 1877.  As a popular holiday gift, the afghan brings back memories and produces new ones.  For some, we may remember it on the back of our grandmother’s favorite chair or at the foot of our parents’ bed.  Others still see it as a blessing on a chilly Friday night at the local high school football game.

afghanmakingWhen the Chatham County Council on Aging opened the doors of its Eastern Chatham Senior Center in Pittsboro in 1996, it also introduced a knitted afghan especially designed to highlight some of Chatham’s treasured landmarks.  While Chatham’s landscape has changed over the past 20 years and will certainly do so in the future, this 100% cotton afghan, produced in the USA, captures some of what has made Chatham such a special place to live and visit.

In the center of the afghan is a depiction of the county Courthouse that was built in 1881, ten years after Chatham County was founded.   Surrounding the courthouse are such other notable and historical markers of Chatham’s character as the Paschal-Womble House in Goldston, Hadley’s Mill, Mt. Vernon Springs, Camelback Bridge, Fearrington Village and its Belted Galloway Cows, Reno Sharp’s Store, the Cape Fear Steam Plant, Bynum Mill, and City Hall in Siler City.  All of these have a rich history and are special in what they meant and still mean to Chatham.

Recently, the Chatham County Council on Aging reproduced this 4’ by 6’ afghan in its three original colors: blue, red and green. “As people are thinking about a holiday gift that is practical and attractive, I recommend you consider this afghan,” encouraged Dennis Streets, director of the Council on Aging.  “You can enjoy it in your home or send it to family and friends so they can better appreciate why we proudly call Chatham home,” remarks Greg Lewis, owner of the Pittsboro Roadhouse. The afghan is on display at the Roadhouse’s general store as well as at the Council’s two senior centers.

“Not only will you appreciate the beauty of this afghan, but you can also be assured that the proceeds of the sale of these afghans will go toward services needed by our growing senior population,” added Sadie McLaurin, Deputy Director of the Council.  Mrs. McLaurin was involved when the afghan was originally produced by the Council in 1996.  “It truly is a unique gift—one that people of all ages can treasure for many years to come.”

The afghan can be purchased for $60 at the Pittsboro Roadhouse and at the Eastern Chatham Senior Center in Pittsboro, 365 Highway 87 N (919-542-4512) and the Western Chatham Senior Center, 112 Village Lake Road (919-742-3975.) You can also contact either Senior Center for information about the Council’s services.

Pittsboro, NC – Bill Nye the Science Guy is coming to Fearrington Village on November 20 at 6:30 pm. Mr. Nye will give a brief talk in The Barn and then sign books purchased at McIntyre’s Books. A purchase of Unstoppable at McIntyre’s will gain entry for two people. He will only sign books purchased from McIntyre’s.

Just as World War II called an earlier generation to greatness, so the climate crisis is calling today’s rising youth to action: to create a better future.

Unstoppable by Bill Nye the Science GuyIn Unstoppable, Bill Nye crystallizes and expands the message for which he is best known and beloved. That message is that with a combination of optimism and scientific curiosity, all obstacles become opportunities, and the possibilities of our world become limitless.

With a scientist’s thirst for knowledge and an engineer’s vision of what can be, Bill Nye sees today’s environmental issues not as insurmountable, depressing problems but as chances for our society to rise to the challenge and create a cleaner, healthier, smarter world.

We need not accept that transportation consumes half our energy, and that two-thirds of the energy you put into your car is immediately thrown away out the tailpipe. We need not accept that dangerous emissions are the price we must pay for a vibrant economy and a comfortable life. Above all, we need not accept that we will leave our children a planet that is dirty, overheated, and depleted of resources.

As Bill shares his vision, he debunks some of the most persistent myths and misunderstandings about global warming. When you are done reading, you’ll be enlightened and empowered. Chances are, you’ll be smiling, too, ready to join Bill and change the world.

In Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World, the New York Times bestselling author of Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation and former host of “Bill Nye the Science Guy” issues a new challenge to today’s generation: to make a cleaner, more efficient, and happier world.

Praise for Undeniable:
“With his charming, breezy, narrative style, Bill empowers the reader to see the natural world as it is, not as some would wish it to be. He does it right. And, as I expected, he does it best.” -Neil deGrasse Tyson, Ph.D, host of COSMOS

“Bill Nye, ‘the Science Guy,’ has become a veritable cultural icon….[T]he title of his new book on evolution…[is] ‘Undeniable,’ because, yes, there are many Americans who still deny what Darwin and other scientists long ago proved.” -Frank Bruni, The New York Times

Pittsboro, NC – A former Army Ranger and national hero will relate what really happened in Benghazi.

“The Chatham County Republicans are kicking off the fall season with an exciting program,” says Brian Bock, Chatham GOP Chair.  The party will be hosting Kris Paronto, co-author of the best seller book, “13 HOURS: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi” on Tuesday, October 6 from 7:30 until 9 pm at the Fearrington Barn in Fearrington Village Center (off 15/501) in Pittsboro.  Doors will open at 7 pm.

Kris ParontoKris will share the real story of the last hours of an American diplomatic outpost in one of the most dangerous corners of the globe. He’ll describe the bloody assault, tragic losses, and heroic deeds at the US State Department Special Mission Compound and at a nearby CIA base in Benghazi, Libya, from the night of September 11, 2012, into the morning of the next day. “Benghazi is back in the news, for many good reasons, and we’re eager to hear the full account,” says Bock. “Hasan Harnett, newly elected Chair of the North Carolina Republican Party, will also be with us.  He will provide an update about the party and will introduce Kris.  We’re really honored that Hasan will be with us.”
