Sing-alongs and good-time songs! Farmer Jason is the brainchild of rock music legend Jason Ringenberg of Jason and the Scorchers.  Come imagine his real working farm in Tennessee as he brings it right to the stage! Jason's catchy tunes and ever-cheerful stage persona truly entertain the very youngest fans and their folks while subtly educating about the amazing diversity of our natural world, where healthy food really comes from (...maybe from his own organic garden!) or the rockin' farm and forest animals found all around us. His message is: "Turn off the electronics and get outdoors!"

Ralph Stanley: Man of Constant Sorrow Tour

November 22, 2014 @ 8:00 PM

A great chance to see a genuine living legend of American music, Dr. Ralph Stanley, in the intimate setting of GPAC's listening room environment. The stark emotional urgency of Dr. Stanley's voice is rooted in a darker time, when pain was the common coin of life and the world offered sinful humanity no hope of refuge.  Preserved in the cultural amber of remote Appalachia, this terse, forlorn sound is the bedrock of Stanley’s inimitable style.
