Micahlan Boney is performing live on stage at the Telfair Center for the Arts this Saturday, Nov. 18
The Pioneer Historical Society is featuring Micahlan Boney and Pig Eye Daddies on stage at the Telfair Center for the Arts this Saturday, Nov. 18 from 7-9 p.m. Boney is a 16-year-old musician and vocalist from Evans County who is no stranger to the stage. Boney learned to play the violin at age eight, the mandolin at nine, and has added several other musical instruments to her skill set since. Boney will be sharing the stage Saturday with several other accomplished musicians from the group, Pig Eye Daddies.
“The Pig Eye Daddies are a very good band with veteran musicians who are a lot of fun to play with,” Boney says. “They’re fun guys and they really care about the show that they put on and pleasing the crowd. It’s just always a fun atmosphere that they provide.”
Boney says she hopes to see a big crowd at TCA Saturday because this performance is one that is close to her heart. Saturday’s concert is a tribute to Boney’s cousin Kyle Barren who lost his life in a recent airplane accident.
“I just want to say I love Telfair County and the people there,” says the artist. Everyone is invited to make plans to attend the concert this Saturday at the Telfair Center for the Arts. Tickets are only $10 and are available at the door beginning at 6:30 p.m. or through the Center’s online store at www.tcfta.com. Pick up a copy of this week’s Enterprise for more from our exclusive interview with Boney.
Post 80 of the American Legion gathered at Liberty Square downtown McRae-Helena Saturday, Nov. 11 for their Annual Veterans Day Ceremony. A small crowd of supporters, family, friends and members of Unit 80 of the American Legion Auxiliary were also on hand to show their support and respect. Keynote speaker for the occasion was Stan Rutherford and at the end of the program, the winner of Post 80’s Annual Henry Rifle Raffle was drawn from thousands of registration forms entered in the contest during the preceding months. Proceeds from the Annual Henry Rifle Raffle go to the American Legion’s Scholarship Fund, from which scholarships are awarded each year to deserving graduates by Post 80 of the American Legion.
