This benefit, organized by Leadership Greenwood class members, addresses food insecurity at the college level and supports Lander’s Bear Necessities food pantry. Tickets at eventbrite.com. Search Music for Meals. Tickets are $50 at the door. Cash bars provided. Be sure to bring your own seating so you don’t have to sit in the sand at the arena!
Saturday, Newberry Opera House welcomes heralded bluegrass singer and musician Dan Tyminski. Remember the film “O’Brother Where Art Thou” and the hit song from its soundtrack, “I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow”? That’s Tyminski’s voice you hear on that track.
Also Saturday, go back in time at the Abbeville Opera House to the heyday of one of the most iconic women in comedy, none other than the fiery redhead Lucille Ball. She starred in the 1950s television show, “I Love Lucy.”
Abbeville Opera House once again welcomes the fabulous Melody Knighton to its stage for a squeaky clean, but absolutely hilarious Lucy tribute that will make you think you are watching Lucille Ball.
