Fourth Annual State of the Arts Weekend in Historic Downtown Bristol

June 17, 2014
Once again, Bristol will be alive with the arts for a special State of the Arts Weekend on June 20–22, coordinated by the Believe in Bristol Arts & Entertainment District Steering Committee. Committee members are working with numerous venues, artists and performers to promote and plan arts activities to enjoy throughout downtown over the weekend. It's also a time to spotlight artists and venues that are doing what they do best: bringing Bristol consistently great performances and memorable artistic experiences.

"State of the Arts is always a wonderful weekend – and this year there are so many fun activities for everyone to enjoy, many of which are free to the public,” says René Rodgers, Associate Director of Believe in Bristol. “We are so proud of our Arts & Entertainment District and all it has to offer, and State of the Arts is a great way to celebrate the arts downtown!”

The State of the Arts Weekend is part of the continuing effort to keep the Bristol art scene's momentum going strong and to establish the cities as the region's premier destination for arts and entertainment.

“State of the Arts weekend was the brainchild of Jerry Goodpasture and the Arts & Entertainment District Steering Committee,” says Mimi Kind, chair of the committee and owner of One of a Kind Gallery. “Each year, it has gotten bigger and better, with more activities and ways to appreciate the variety of arts right here in downtown Bristol. You just can’t miss the great time you'll have enjoying your downtown arts destinations and special events this weekend!”

Border Bash in Historic Downtown Bristol — JP Parsons & The American Bandwagon and Jon LaDeau


JP Parsons
June 17, 2014
Set in Historic Downtown Bristol, Border Bash continues on Friday, June 20, 2014 in the 600 block of State Street. The evening’s events will start with children’s activities, crafters, and concessions at 6PM. Live music begins at 7:00PM with JP Parsons & The American Bandwagon followed up by Jon LaDeau around 8:30PM. As always, Border Bash is free to the public!

JP Parsons & The American Bandwagon: Hailed by Pick Bristol as "Bristol's own troubadour," Bristol, Virginia native JP Parsons is no stranger to the music scene – he has been a local favorite for years. With his unique, gripping voice and soulful lyrics, Parsons' music will take you along the journey with him. Parsons' passion for music began with the piano at the age of six and quickly grew into the art of songwriting. Versed in guitar, bass, banjo, piano, lap steel, and even the saxophone, Parsons' natural talent for songwriting, along with his versatile playing style and his love for performance, has gained him a large and diverse fan base across the region. After two well-received performances in 2013's multi-award-winning Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, JP Parsons and The American Bandwagon are pleasing audiences everywhere they play. http://www.reverbnation.com/jpparsons

Jon LaDeau: Jon LaDeau is a songwriter, guitarist, and singer living in Brooklyn, New York. His unique blend of rock & roll is coupled with his blues and country influences. Over the past several years he has performed with his band, as a solo artist, and as a sideman in nearly every state in the United States, along with Switzerland, Italy, and Austria. His band has broken in dance floors all across the country, and after spending five months on the road in 2012, he sold out of his self-titled release. His concerts range from full band affairs to mellow acoustic sets, depending on the mood of the evening. http://www.jonladeau.com/news/

“We can’t believe Border Bash is almost half over,” said Leah Ross, Executive Director of Birthplace of Country Music. “We have already heard some great bands, and this will be another fantastic night of music on State Street!”

Final Student Art Gallery of the Year Goes Big! Students Create Collaborative Art for Display in Historic Downtown Bristol

June 17, 2014
The Arts & Entertainment District is hosting the 3rd Annual Student Art Gallery in Downtown Bristol. In an effort to “Cultivate Bristol’s Creativity,” the district has invited the local schools to help us beautify our community by providing art to decorate the front windows of the former Hayes Furniture Building on State Street.

“The downtown Student Art Gallery is a very important part of the arts culture in Bristol, and it gives the community a wonderful opportunity to share in the artistic accomplishments of our area students,” says Marjorie Tester, board president of Believe in Bristol. “As we walk by the display, the varying colors and concepts catch our eye and give us the opportunity to appreciate what our youth can accomplish with the leadership of their teachers.”

Each school or group that participates has a month-long period to display their students’ art in the space. The eighth gallery of art went up on June 4, showcasing art from students at Fairmount Elementary School in Bristol, Tennessee.

“Since our time to display art was set to be over the summer, I decided to have my students create large paintings as a group. Many classes were involved in making the paintings, including Pre-K all the way up to 4th grade,” says teacher Monet LaClair.

“They were all excited to create large-scale paintings as a group and they all worked so well together! To make the paintings, they started with black paint and painted different size shapes all over the paper. They then connected the shapes using various types of lines. Once this dried, they used different colored paint to fill in the shapes and all the spaces created by the lines. All the students and teachers were in awe of the finished paintings – they were amazed at how beautiful the paintings came out just by using simple lines, shapes and color!”

Artwork by the students from Fairmount will be on display at the Hayes Furniture Building for much of the summer.

Jeff Little to head new Entertainment Technology technical certificate program

June 17, 2014
Northeast State’s Business Technologies Division has announced the addition of a technical certificate program in Entertainment Technology – Sound and Lighting. The 24 credit hour program will offer classes starting in fall 2014.

Courses for the Entertainment Technology certificate program will be offered at the College’s Bristol teaching site, 620 State Street, Level 3.

The certificate is designed to provide students with the basic knowledge and real-world applications for sound and lighting production. This includes small business management, live sound, recording engineering, concert lighting, electronic/digital music, equipment maintenance, and basic concepts of computer operations.

Typical job opportunities include those related to lighting system production for events and concerts, and setting up audio systems for event, concert, and recording productions. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects employment for these types of technicians will grow about 9 percent over the next 10 years.

Courses scheduled for fall include Computer Applications (INFS 1010), Introduction to Entertainment (ENT 1100), Recording Engineering I (ENT 1300), and Small Business Management (BUSN 1340).

Jeff Little, a noted musician and educator, is department head of the program. A professional musician since the age of 14, Little is conversant with traditional old-time country, bluegrass, rockabilly, and blues. He often plays shows with his band, The Jeff Little Trio. His performances include National Public Radio, PBS, The Smithsonian Institution, Merlefest, and the American Folk Festival.

Little also worked in Nashville for many years as a well-established musician and manager. He has worked with several national artists including Keith Urban, Montgomery Gentry, and John Michael Montgomery.

In 2004, Jeff and his family returned to the Blue Ridge where he was director of the Music Industry Program at Guilford Technical Community College in Jamestown, N.C., until taking the Northeast State position.

“We truly want to bring in real-world applications. Not only do we want students to know their area of expertise like lighting or sound, but also give them broad-based knowledge of how all these entities work together,” Little said. “This is so they can make the best decisions they can while working on their artistic and technical skills.”

Students interested in admission to the Entertainment Technology certificate program may contact Little at 423.354.5216 or jtlittle@NortheastState.edu or the Office of Admissions and Records at800.836.7822 or e-mail admissions@NortheastState.edu.
