Standing room only at Stephen Foster Day

Jasper — A standing room only crowd turned out for the annual National Stephen Foster Day, held inside the Carillon Bell Tower at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in White Springs on Sunday, Jan. 12.

This year's Stephen and Jeanie, Alexander Solomon and Amanda Caban, were the guests of honor, accompanied by pianist Timothy Redding, along with other talented artists, including Michael Vickey, who had everyone mesmerized as he played both the hammered and Appalachian dulcimer. Jan Krautheim delighted everyone with a piano solo and also accompanied the artists on piano and guitar.

White Springs local Johnny Bullard was the emcee and he opened the concert leading  the guests in Stephen Foster's most famous song, “Old Folks at Home”. Bullard also sang “Beautiful Dreamer” to the delight of the crowd, after which he received a generous ovation.

Lucy Spencer performed two numbers on the Carillon bells and after the concert performances were completed, everyone was invited to stay a while and enjoy some tasty refreshments.
