Coweta Musician Ken White in Concert Sponsored by Fayette Arts Committee
     The online news service The Southside Arts Agenda has been doing an excellent job covering the burgeoning arts scene in the counties of the Southern Crescent.  One of the  items in the current issue, reproduced below, deals with a concert coming up on October 27, which is especially interesting for showing the co-operation among the counties with respect to the arts:  the Fayette arts council, The Endowment Committee For Cultural Arts (ECCA), is sponsoring a concert featuring a musician from Coweta, Ken White.  This announcement is taken from the ECCA website
 Ken White Concert
The evening begins with a "Toast to the Arts" Wine reception at 7:30 PM, followed by the concert at 8:00 PM.

Senoia Coffee House Presents Variety of Music During Next Few Weeks
    As everyone knows by now the thing to do at Coffee Houses is to have a great variety of different blends of coffee and different flavorings added to the coffee.  Well, now, Ed and Lenora Sykes of Senoia not only offer this expected variety in their coffees, they are also offering a great musical variety in their special Friday night shows.  The schedule they just released is shown below.
     Two items deserve comment.  There was an excellent neo-Celtic band which performed in Newnan several years ago but since then there has been nothing in that genre around here, so the first item on the agenda should be especially interesting.  Another interesting item is a musician from Newnan who will be returning to the Senoia Coffee House -- Jerry Yates, who  has been winning all kinds of awards this year and was one of the featured musicians at this year's New Grantville Days Festival two weeks ago.
     I also have it on reliable authority that there is some good art work adorning the walls.  So, coffee plus music plus art should equal a great evening at this great Coweta venue in Senoia.

Historical Society Announces Traditional "Spirit Strolls"
     During recent  years there have been so many great new accomplishments flooding the art scene in Coweta County, that some people may be getting the idea that only new things are being done in this county.  This is not the case.  There are also lots of traditions here.  One of these is the annual traditional "Spirit Strolls" sponsored by the Newnan-Coweta Historical Society.  Information on the one coming up for this year is provided below in their latest news release written by Dave Dorrell:

Beginning the evening of Friday, October 5, the historic neighborhoods of LaGrange and Greenville Street will come alive with the dead. That is, the stories of strange and unusual spirit activities will be told as the Newnan-Coweta Historical Society present their annual Spirit Strolls. 

This year the strolls will begin at the Newnan Theatre Company building on First Avenue and visit several haunted locales throughout the surrounding neighborhood. Each excursion will be led by a Spirit Guide, and at each stop the ghost or spirit who supposedly inhabits the space will appear and relate their sometimes scary, sometimes gruesome, sometimes silly tale to the group. The stroll takes just over an hour and participants are encouraged to wear comfy shoes to walk (or run away) in! Many of the stories being told are from the actual homeowners and some are local folklore. The stories are not too intense, but good judgement should be used in bringing children.

A special Stroll on October 20 is called "Progressive Dinner with the Dearly Departed" and is a progressive dinner buffet. Participants will enjoy delicious gourmet treats served by "ghost hosts" at several of the haunted locations. The cost for this special stroll is $40 per person.

The Spirit Strolls will be held October 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, and 26. There are two excursions each Friday and Saturday night, one at 7pm and again at 8:30pm. Groups are limited to 25 for each excursion.

Cost for the Spirit Stroll is $15 per person, and reservations must be made in advance. Spirit Stroll reservations can be made by calling the Newnan-Coweta Historical Society at 678-481-4526

In conjunction with the strolls, their will be an opportunity to mix and mingle with some lively spirits during "Dinner with the Dead" - an interactive murder mystery dinner on October 27. Hosted by Newnan Theatre Company, dinner will begin at 9pm with spirits and salads, continues to the main course, and finally ends with the last rites of dessert. In between each course, diners will be asked to perform a little service for the residents of the building - solve some of the most intriguing murders ever committed in Coweta County. Working as teams, participants will compete by looking for clues, interviewing suspects, and perhaps witnessing a violent act or two.

Reserve your plot today. Seats are limited and everyone will be dying to attend! For more information, please visit
Tickets for "Dinner with the Dead" are available online at or by calling the NTC Box Office at 770-683-6282. Leave a message and someone will return your call to take your reservation and credit card information. ALL RESERVATIONS MUST BE PRE-PAID and are non-refundable. Ticket sales for "Dinner with the Dead" end October 24, so hurry!!

Renae Barton Art Gallery To Feature New Southside Artist Greg Blair on Sept 28
     It is difficult to keep up with the Coweta County arts scene because there are always new artists and organizations cropping up all the time.  The latest one to arrive on the scene is Renae Barton and her Renae Barton Art Gallery which opened in Newnan last month at 20 Jefferson Street in The Shops of Beard and Co.   The simplest way to describe what you will see in her gallery is to note the great variety of media, styles, and subjects among the various art works produced by the dozen artists currently exhibiting.  Perhaps the most intriguing of these works are those by Baarton herself and by Daniel Blake of Newnan.  Anyone interested in seeing Blake's art needs to come in soon because Blake will soon be moving out of Coweta.       
     Another very interesting man whose works are displayed there is Greg Blair, who will be the Featured Artist on Friday September 28 from 5 PM thru 9 PM.  Greg recently moved from Atlanta to Tyrone, where he established his own gallery and frame store called Dogwood Gallery and Framer, which had its Grand Opening earlier this month.  Beginning on September 28 and continuing  for several weeks after that the Renae Barton Gallery will display many of Blair's works.

20 Coweta Writers Coming to Book Signing at Grantville Day
     The literary arts are alive and well in Coweta County and must be considerd an important facet of the overall Coweta arts scene. A dramatic demonstration of this fact will be provided this coming weekend at the Coweta Authors Book Signing Extravaganza (CABSE).  All Coweta authors of a published book have been invited to participate in the CABSE, and 20 have accepted the invitation.  That number might sound  high to most people but it is actually only about half of all Coweta's published book authors.  Some authors cannot attend because of schedule conflicts, physical infimities, or other reasons. 
     There is a great variety among the authors and among the kinds of books they have written.  There is biography, history, how-to books, children's books, inspiration, paranormal thrillers, fantasy, science fiction, historical fiction, suspense, romance, poetry, and even a book on educational theory! The CABSE will provide the public with an opportunity to meet these authors and acquire autographed copies of their books.  The CABSE will be a special feature of the New Grantville Days Festival (traditionally called "Grantville Day").  The authors will be seated behind a long row of tables at the east end of Main Street.  The tables will be open on Saturday September 15 from 10 AM through 5 PM and on Sunday September 16 from 12 Noon through 5 PM.  The Grantville Day Committee is to be commended for this pioneering effort to focus attention on the literary arts and for bringing the authors out to where the people are.
There is no admission charge to Grantville Day or to the CABSE.
     Grantville is located at Exit 35 of I-85.  Information on Grantville Day is available at  Info on the CABSE is available from its Co-ordinator, Forrest Schultz, at 770-583-3258 or

Jerry Yates Scheduled to Perform at Red Light Cafe and at Grantville Day
     Newnan musican Jerry Yates has been in the news lately for winning several awards -- one from his producer and two from the Roots Music Association.  Now he has just released the following news about his scheduled appearance at the prestigious Red Light Cafe in Atlanta on Sepember 14.  (And the New Grantville Days Festival (formerly called "Grantville Day") will soon be releasing the information about his appearance there on Sunday afternoon September 16.)
Newnan Georgia's Award Winning Christian Country Blues, and Rockabilly Gospel Artist, Jerry Yates, has reached another milestone, as he continues to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ everywhere he can!
On September 14th at 7:30, Rev. Yates will be appearing at Midtown Atlanta's prestigious Red Light Cafe.  Not generally know for booking Gospel Music artists, The Red Light Cafe finally landed Yates, after three months of emails and schedule adjustments.
The Red Light Cafe at 553 Amsterdam Ave., in Midtown Atlanta, offers a great opprotunity to see new, promising music talent, in an intimate atmosphere. The venue is located in the Amsterdam Walk Shopping Center, and their setup for chairs and tables depends upon the music and artist, so it's best to call ahead for details. It is general admission only, so patrons are advised to come early to snag a chair. No liquor is served, but they do offer beer and wine. About performing where they serve alcoholic beverages, Jerry said, "That's where they need to hear the Gospel the most! I ain't going to drink it!"
The Red Light Cafe is best known for its loyalty to Bluegrass music, however, after hearing the music and singing of Jerry Yates, which is included in his electronic press kit, the venue decided to showcase his fantastic talent, on Friday night, September 14th. Again the music starts around 7:30pm.
To get there, take I-85 North, and get off at the 10th Street exit. Go East on 10th St. until it deadends into Monroe Dr.  Go left on Monroe, and travel approxamately half a mile, to 2nd light, and go left onto Amsterdam Ave. The Cafe is on the left, down the hill, and is the first shop on the left at Amsterdam Walk.
Rev Yates said that the venue was expecting him to draw 25 or 30 people, so your support will be greatly appreciated. In fact, Yates said he will give a free CD to anyone who shows up with a copy of this article, or a copy of the email he sent to his mailing list.
Jerry will also be returning to Club908 in Conyers, on September 7th, at 7pm.

in theatre companies across the country.  They moved to Georgia from
New York when Mark accepted a position to teach theatre and film at

theatre performers and patrons. This is an excellent opportunity for
area schools to experience professional theatre in an intimate and

design of this beautiful new theatre located on Highway 74 in Tyrone.
The intimate theatre has 176 custom designed traditional theatre
stadium seats in a rich purple fabric with a velvet main curtain dyed
to match.  The 50 foot stage is framed by a Hollywood designed 25 foot tall proscenium arch in an art deco design.
