Chapman Cultural Center supports local singer-songwriters through its Sundays Unplugged program, providing a venue to showcase regional musical talent every Sunday, 2-4 p.m. These concerts are but one part of Sundays Unplugged, which also features free admission to art galleries and the history museum, 1-5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 16, bluegrass and folk artist Craig Owen performs in Zimmerli Plaza, weather permitting.
Having performed in the Spartanburg/Greenville area for years, Owen has played both bluegrass covers and folksy originals in many local venues. He plays bluegrass on fiddle, but plays his own modern folk and easy listening songs on acoustic guitar, pairing his instrumentals with great vocals. Owen has also produced several CDs, including The Smallest of Things and Daydreams and Memories.
Patrons may also enjoy free admission to Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg, Spartanburg Art Museum, Spartanburg Regional History Museum, and the Student Galleries. Spartanburg Science Center will also be open with a small admission fee.
Sundays Unplugged is a program of The Arts Partnership of Greater Spartanburg, the administrative non-profit agency that owns and operates Chapman Cultural Center and provides cultural leadership throughout Spartanburg County.
