Collins Brothers Bluegrass to perform at Folk School Country and bluegrass musicians F.C. and Randall Collins and their band will be featured in a free concert at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, N.C. on Friday, June 6 at 7:30 p.m. The concert will be held in the Festival Barn. Those attending are urged to park near Keith House or the Dining Hall and walk to the Festival Barn where a few handicapped parking spaces are available. There will be a limited

number of folding chairs as well as haybale seating, so audience members may wish to bring a lawn chair or blanket. Admission is free. F.C and Randall Collins’ancestors were among the early settlers of Union County, Georgia. Their father, grandfather and great grandfather were all well known local fiddlers. F.C. started playing guitar and singing as a child, performing with local bands during

high school, often leaving home before daylight to play on the radio in Gainesville. After graduation he worked and performed in Atlanta but returned to Blairsville to raise a family. He has been a member of the Georgia Mountain Fair Staff Band for the past 30 years. Randall Collins learned to play fiddle as a boy, sometimes sneaking his fiddle to the cornfield where he would hoe a row then fiddle a tune. Since then he has gone on to

play and record with many of the great names in bluegrass music including Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin, Mac Wiseman, and Jim and Jesse. As a founding member of the Pinnacle Boys, he toured the U.S. and Canada and recorded eight albums. The Collins Brothers have both been honored by the Georgia Country Music Hall of Fame. The other members of the Collins Brothers’ band are Crystal Murphy, fiddle, Kerry Warpington, banjo,

Morris Hagood, fiddle, Chuck Nation, mandolin, and Kenneth Young, bass. Upcoming Folk School performers include Lou Wamp & Swing Shift (June 13) and Steve Hickman and John Devine (June 20). The Folk School’s Friday night concert schedule is available on the world wide web at http://www. folkschool.org. For further information, call the Folk School at 837-2775 or 1-800-FOLK-SCH.

CHAPBOOK: Barrett describes hardships of the South. cated her poetry chapbook to her grandmother, Hattie Foster. She told Barrett wonderful stories and inspired her to become a writer. The title of her book, WHEN THE SAP RISES, came from her grandmother’s sayings. She predicted the weather by observing nature. Barrett writes in her poem, “When the Sap Rises�: ... “See those thick corn shucks. We can be on the lookout for a rough winter.� One day when I visited, she said, “In the spring of the year, when the sap rises is a hard time for sick folks, another time is in the fall, when the sap goes down.� The sap seems to rise on the

cover of Barrett’s poetry chapbook. She painted an old-time house including a rock chimney, tin roof, a giant tree in the yard, a front porch, and greens in the garden. A dirt road circles the farmhouse and merges with a lavender sunset over the misty mountains. It’s serene and flows with an undercurrent of faith. Barrett took an oil painting class at Young Harris College and received an Associate of Arts Degree in 1969. She’s painted over thirty years and her art is displayed on the online art gallery, Yessy.com. She also studied at North Georgia College and took creative writing under Nancy Simpson at Tri-County Community College. Barrett worked twenty years in the health care profession before a neuromuscular disease. The doctors echoed words like heredity and genetics before giving her the diagnosis. “At times, I am silent, stare into space, and retreat to a place no one else can go,â€? she says in her poem, “Family Tiesâ€?. It’s a place where she no longer wonders what her father thought. Her poem, “Kindred Spirit,â€? describes a cardinal at the feeder. Barrett feels a deep connection with the bird because it is blind in one eye. She expresses her health issues in this verse: ‌A feeling of knowing, no matter what happens, there will always be hope and endless possibilities. The moisture from my breath leaves a circle on the windowpane, and I watch from my scooter,

until the cardinal flies out of sight. Barrett is recovering from a recent surgery on her foot. She’s in a scooter now, but hopes to walk soon. She finds comfort in her family and talking with friends on the telephone. She also enjoys reading and crafting poetry. A member of North Carolina Writers’ Network-West, Barrett’s work has appeared in many magazines and five anthologies. Her poetry has been published in Kaleidoscope, Nostalgia, Wellspring, Hard Row to Hoe, Living with Loss Magazine, A Time of Singing, Mindprints Journal, Wordgathering Journal, Farming Magazine, Artists Against Domestic Violence, and Nantahala Review. She has poetry upcoming in Breath and Shadow. According to Nancy Simpson, “Glenda Barrett gives us the most authentic Appalachian voice to rise out of the southern mountains in years. Whether she is eating an apple with a knife or if she is knee deep fishing in Owl Creek, here is a woman who is as immersed in her environment as in her daily existence. Barrett’s concerns for family and heritage go beyond what happened, for her poems celebrate life, transcend sorrow, and show the reader what was learned.� Barrett’s books are available locally at Mary Ann’s Restaurant in Young Harris, Georgia. You may also order online at: “http:// www.amazon.com� www.amazon.com and www.finishinglinepress.com.

EXCITING RALLY: Those in attendance listened to state senator Walter Dalton at the rally. By Frank Bradley SENTINEL WRITER

About 300 Democrats turned out Saturday for a three county rally with a call for change in government policy. Folks from Graham, Clay and Cherokee counties gathered to hear state senator Walter Dalton, the Democratic candidate for Lt. Governor, along with other state candidates or their representatives urge Democrats to take an active part in getting Democrats elected to state, federal and local offices. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a defining moment in our time,â&#x20AC;?

in 2008 because â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Republicans have lost their message.â&#x20AC;? Citing the huge federal deficit, the endless war in Iraq, the high cost of food and fuel, the housing slump, Dalton said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the people will embrace our message.â&#x20AC;? He called for policy measures including a larger investment in education, expanding health care, and creating 21st Century jobs. He said the country needs to take care of our veterans when they come home (from the war). He said â&#x20AC;&#x153;congress needs to have the moral courage to stand up for the American people and say this is enough.â&#x20AC;? State Senator John Snow, who introduced Dalton, called him a friend of western North Carolina. He cited several examples of Daltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership in the senate when he had stepped in to help Snow get legislation passed that was important to this end of the state. Beverly Perdue, the Democratic candidate for governor, was unable to attend the Peachtree rally because of a prior engagement. Perdue advocates cite her experience in the state senate in which she has led the fight for Smart Start and higher teacher salaries; sponsored the law providing health care for 115,000 children and protecting North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s military bases from closings, thereby saving thousands of state jobs as examples of her leadership. Perdue proposes to make North Carolina a leader in environmental, defense and aerospace jobs, make higher education affordable and to expand health coverage for uninsured families. Spokespersons for other state candidates including Kay Hagen for U.S. Senate and June Atkinson for State Superintendent of Schools spoke at the rally. The rally took place at the Bill Wells farm on Peachtree. Food was provided by attending families and music was provided by Gnarly Fingers of Hayesville.
