Live Folk Music Concert with Randy Brown

•Saturday, September 29th, 2012 @ 7:00pm

Randy Brown is about as eclectic a songwriter you’ll ever meet. With subjects as diverse as border radio stations, bull nettle for state flower and talking to extraterrestrials with flashlights, his songs often take unexpected turns.
But within the turns and quirks (and even quarks!) lie inventive lyrics and unusual insights. An award-winning songwriter/philosopher who wrote his first song at age 13, Randy’s 2006 CD, Dream Big, has received great reviews and radio airplay. His concert at The Old Firehouse will be a Release Party for his upcoming CD, “But Wait, There’s More”. 13+ or with adult, please….

Comedy- By Patricia Gray.
Based on the classic by J.R.R. Tolkien.
It’s unusual for a modern work to become a classic so quickly, but Tolkien’s “ring” stories, which began with The Hobbit, clearly are in this very special category. They stir the imagination and intellect of everyone they touch. Bilbo, one of the most conservative of all Hobbits, is asked to leave his large, roomy and very dry home in the ground in order to set off as chief robber in an attempt to recover an important treasure. It’s the last thing that any sensitive Hobbit would want to do, but great benefit eventually results-not only for Bilbo but for all of the Hobbits who inhabit Middle Earth-and the hearts of those children and adults who continue to enjoy this kind of magic.
