awesFriends of Coastal South Carolina announces the 12th annual Music and Oysters for Wildlife on Saturday, January 21 from 1:30 pm to 6:00 pm at the Sewee Outpost in Awendaw. It will be a fantastic day of music and all you can eat Bulls Bay oysters.

Presented by Friends of Coastal South Carolina, the event benefits the group’s environmental education programs which allow thousands of kids along the South Carolina coast to explore the wonders of our natural world each year. In addition to teaching kids about their responsibility as stewards of our environment, the science focused programs allow kids to see their in-class science lessons come to life in the outdoor classrooms of our national forest and wildlife refuges.

“Although we support many conservation projects for our coastal national forest and wildlife refuges, environmental education remains our flagship program,” said Executive Director Grace Gasper. “We must have a knowledgeable and engaged next generation making decisions to continue to protect our natural resources.”

The event also features an “out of this world” silent auction with incredible bargains on travel, local dining, and outdoor gear. Advanced tickets $35  or $40 at the gate. Children under 12 are free. Ticket includes live music and all you can eat oysters. All beer wine and food sales benefit Friends of Coastal South Carolina. Held rain or shine, no pets or outside alcohol is allowed. Tickets are available at www.sccoastalfriends.org.

“What the Folk Festival was formed through a friendship with Todd Snider and his love of playing in this area. The lineup includes musicians that come close to emulating what Todd does as a singer/songwriter,” said festival organizer Brett Ford.  “As we plan to make this an annual event, my goal is to continue to have Americana type groups play and get recognized for what they do, since the majority of them don’t receive the radio play or media recognition that they deserve.”

A portion of proceeds will benefit Carolina Studios, a non-profit that provides at risk students a safe environment to foster creative, educational and career-focused initiatives through music technology and media arts.

Mac’n At The ‘Drome – A Concert Film Experience Benefiting Mac Leaphart

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 13, 2012 by Lowcountry Boil

On January 28, both local and national musicians will be sitting in for beloved singer and songwriter, Mac Leaphart, and performing his songs at The Hippodrome. Benefiting a man who has successfully made a career out of connecting with people through his music, proceeds will go to Mac in his ongoing recovery from a serious car accident and recent surgery to remove a brain tumor. A unique experience of camaraderie and good will, performances of Mac’s music will be set against a visual narration on the theatre’s IMAX screen and give life to Mac’s story and his significant impact on those around him.

The concert features collaborative performances by Mark Bryan (Hootie and The Blowfish), Danielle Howle, Five Way Friday, John Wesley Satterfield, Joal Rush, Doug Jones (Craven Melon), Luke Cunningham, Greg Payne (The Piedmont Boys), Ryan Bonner, Jamie Resch with Shovels & Rope, Donnie Blackwell and more very special surprise guests. Reid Stone and Guilt Ridden Troubadour featuring members of Mac Leaphart’s current band, Mac Leaphart and My Ragged Company, will act as house band and musical conductors for the night’s celebration.

As doors open at 6:30 pm, acoustic music by Jim Marshall (Junkyard Angel) and a silent auction will start in the lobbies. Food concessions provided by Home Team BBQ and a full bar will run throughout the night. The concert begins at 8 p.m. in the theatre and will last until 10 pm followed by more live music by Five Way Friday and John Totaro’s Classic Woodies until 12 a.m. or later. Garage parking is available as well as free parking in the open lot adjacent to the venue. Advance tickets are $17 and may be purchased online at  www.charlestonhippodrome.com. Day of show tickets are $20.

Mac Leaphart is a singer/songwriter who plays a blend of country, rhythm and blues. The Charleston City Paper describes Mac as “a rowdy set, which seems to meld Gram Parsons with the ‘Sticky Fingers’ era Rolling Stones”. Since his arrival in Charleston in 2007, Leaphart has been performing over 250 shows a year, solo and with his band, Mac Leaphart and My Ragged Company. Give Mac a listen and see why Skope Magazine says, “This guy may just single handedly save country music.”
