Chapman Cultural Center supports regional singer-songwriters during its weekly Sundays Unplugged program, featuring casual and cultural entertainment every Sunday, 1-5 p.m. The center will feature “newgrass” and folk artist Ary Jeau Aug. 23, 2015. Art galleries and the history museum will also be open, 1-5 p.m., offering free admission for all ages.
Spartanburg resident Rachel Fleming, also known by her stage name Ary Jeau, describes herself as “fairly new to the music scene,” but has already been signed to McFearlis Music, LLC, a locally based label that specializes in original and cutting-edge sounds. Jeau is a guitarist and vocalist who performs folk and “newgrass,” or progressive bluegrass. She is a resident of Chesnee and student at Converse College.
“The warm encouragement I have received from Spartanburg is humbling,” Jeau said. “[I] am beyond excited to be on this journey.”
Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg, Spartanburg Art Museum, Spartanburg Regional History Museum, and the Student Galleries will complement Jeau’s performance with free admission. Spartanburg Science Center will be open for a small fee.
