Jeremy Casella House Show

Friday Arts Project is proud to bring singer/songwriter Jeremy Casella back to Old Town Rock Hill for a second year in a row. This year's concert will be a house show.

Jeremy's most recent offering, RCVRY, has been called "A Masterwork" by Derek Webb. Christianity Today Magazine says "5 out of 5 stars...captivating, a hauntingly beautiful album to say the least."

We are excited to be able to act as patrons, providing a small opportunity for an excellent artist to share his work with us. As artists ourselves, we understand the importance of people being willing to support our work. Here are a few thoughts from another musician, Andrew Peterson, on this important issue:
"Go to the websites of your favorite artists and see if they’re coming to a town near you. They’ll be glad you showed up, I guarantee it. Most of the time the tickets are about what you’d pay for a movie, only in this case your money won’t be lining Jerry Bruckheimer’s silken pockets–it’ll go to diapers or the new transmission or the mixing engineer for the new album...Most of us who play music pay the bills by touring. CD sales are helpful, but touring is where the rubber meets the road. We need you to come to the shows. We like to play our songs for other members of the human race. We like meeting you. We love the crackle of spiritual electricity when our songs and your stories intersect. Bring your friends. Concerts–event bad ones–are usually more memorable than movies. Plus, it pays the mortgage."
