Holiday Market – Johnson County Farmers Market

Hi All,

I hope everyone is enjoying our early visit from old man winter!

The Johnson County Farmers Market will be hosting a Holiday Market this year. God’s Country Church has generously offered us the use of their fellowship hall so we can be warm, dry, and cozy during the market!

The market will be on Saturday, December 1st. from 9-1. We will have a wide array of crafts, canned goods, winter produce, and homemade items. This is a great way to shop LOCAL for the holidays and keep money within our community!

Heritage Hall – Wayne Henderson, Jeff Little & Helen White

Wayne Henderson’s top-notch finger-picking is a source of great pleasure and pride; his guitar playing has also been enjoyed at Carnegie Hall, in three national tours of “Masters of the Steel-String Guitar”, and in seven nations in Asia.

Jeff Little is a remarkable musician, steeped in the tradition of his native Blue Ridge, yet also a virtuosic and eclectic innovator. His piano style includes Old-Time Country, Folk, Americana music and the adaptation of fiddle tunes. His distinctive two-handed style has been greatly influenced by the mountain flatpicked guitar tradition.

Helen White, Wayne’s friend and fellow musician, is a bass player whose talent adds a great deal to the overall performance.
