Columbia State Community College
Thu, Feb 20 7:00 pm
Celebrating its eighteenth season, Columbia State Community College is pleased to announce the artist roster for the 2019-2020 First Farmers Performance Series season. “We sincerely appreciate the continued support and interest in Columbia State’s First Farmers Performance Series,” said Dr. Janet F. Smith, Columbia State president. “As we approach our eighteenth season, we are exceptionally proud of the growth of the Performance Series, and exceedingly grateful for the tremendous support of our surrounding communities, our patrons, and especially, First Farmers and Merchants Bank, our long-time title sponsor.” Performing Feb. 20 is The SteelDrivers. Nashville, Tennessee may be the only town around where salaried songwriters and full-time session musicians are as common as accountants and school teachers. And only Nashville could give birth to a band like The SteelDrivers: each distinguished in his or her own right, each valued in the town’s commercial community – who are seizing an opportunity to follow their hearts. In doing so, they are braiding their bluegrass roots with new threads of their own design, bringing together country, soul and other contemporary influences.
