Chris Skeene will present on Friday night. Here is a photo this fine gentleman took.

So this will be our third 5X15 and I gotta say, its been the most exciting thing we do as an artistic community. Why do I feel that way? It's because we get to see the creative diversity that abides in and around our community. You get to experience 15 folks sharing for 5 minutes. In the span of that 5 minutes you may hear the latest song someone has composed, see how a visual artist hammered through her most recent project, or simply a presentation on what inspires an individual to make art.

Because of this diversity, we get to revel in the amazing work that the Divine Spirit does through the efforts of others.

Here is a preview of what's in store:

Tim Eriksen & Sacred Harp

Greetings all, I wanted to let the community know of a very exciting event that is coming round the way.

St. Paul's Presbyterian (163 Ponce DeLeon, at Piedmont) will be hosting a concert as well as a Sacred Harp singing workshop taught by Tim Eriksen on Wednesday May 26th . Please come and bring your friends. Tim is a fearless and deeply compelling musician that comes to Atlanta very rarely. He is also a longtime Sacred Harp singer and is well known for having arranged for the Sacred Harp singing in the film "Cold Mountain" as well as teaching Jude Law, Nicole Kidman and a bunch of Romanian extras how to look like
they were singing in that film.

Singing workshop begins at 6:30 (all are welcome!)

Concert begins at 8:30

Concert: Suggested donation $8.

Here, Tim Eriksen is performing at IronHorse music hall. For more photos:www.flickr.com/photos/wmshc_kiwitayro/
