Music legend Ricky Skaggs coming to Woodstock

WOODSTOCK, Ga. -- Music legend Ricky Skaggs is coming to FoxTale Book Shoppe on his Kentucky Traveler book tour on Tuesday, August 27 at 7 p.m.

In Kentucky Traveler, Ricky Skaggs, the music legend who revived modern bluegrass music, gives a warm, honest, one-of-a-kind memoir of forty years in music—along with the Ten Commandments of Bluegrass, as handed down by Ricky’s mentor Bill Monroe; the Essential Guide to Bedrock Country Songs, a lovingly compiled walk through the songs that have moved Skaggs the most throughout his life; Songs the Lord Taught Us, a primer on Skaggs’s most essential gospel songs; and a bevy of personal snapshots of his musical heroes.

Original Star Wars parody to premiere in Atlanta

Original Star Wars parody to premiere in Atlanta

ATLANTA -- The Spirit of Broadway presents an original show for 2013, The Skywalkers, benefiting the Compassion Programs of the Metropolitan Community Center in Atlanta.

This hysterical atypical Star Wars parody, written by Woodstock resident Trevor Petty, is "honest and respectful to each and every action in the six film saga." However, Petty saw an opportunity to create story lines, motives and intentions not originally in any of the movies. The Skywalkers will be performed on Saturday, August 24 at 8 p.m. at the First MCC Theatre.
