By Osborne & Eppler

Dewey Frye is dead and the rest of his family is left to pick up the pieces -- that is if they don't kill each other first. Not only does matriarch Dorothy have to contend with sudden widowhood, but she's also faced with church-committee harpy Ozella Meeks sticking her nose in the family business, Dewey's snake-in-the-grass brother making a grab for her house, and two grown daughters reliving their childhood rivalry. Funerals bring out the worst, the best, and the funniest in people and the Fryes are no exception. A big-hearted comedy about family -- Southern-style.

When Colton began playing a digital keyboard at the age of three, his family realized he had a gift and sought out formal training for him. Although Ms. Linda Fletcher and Ms. Sherry Tester both “taught” him to read music, the training never resonated with him. To this day, although he is known for his amazing talent on the piano, he does not read music. Instead, he has a keen sense of relative pitch allowing him to listen to a song and play it back, strictly by ear, moments later. The evolution of Colton’s musical journey has been influenced by an extensive list of pianists including Floyd Cramer, Ray Charles, Jeff Little, Tchaikovsky, Art Tatum, Erroll Garner, Oscar Peterson, and many more. As a result, his style reflects any or all of these inspirations. Presently, Colton is very interested in jazz piano and the endless creative technical opportunities it offers. During the last decade, Colton has played on Sundays at his home church, Dyson Grove Baptist Church.In addition to that, he’s the resident pianist for the Tri-Cities Jazz Orchestra. Though he can’t write them down on paper, Colton has written a number of original works for piano and stashed them away in his brain (in addition to recording them in his studio for safekeeping). Colton is currently enrolled at ETSU seeking a M.A. in Brand & Media Strategy and works as a Graduate Assistant in the Alumni office where he serves as their digital media content creator and social media manager.

For 2019, Heritage Hall brings to our community the first ever Summer Sessions; a series of four concerts designed to showcase the incredible young talent of Johnson County. Our fourth and final concert in this 2019 series brings Eryn Jones Fuson.  Eryn was born in the hills of Glendale, California, and later moved with her family to the hills of eastern Tennessee.  She does not view her profession as a job, but rather a lifelong passion that she has the privilege of utilizing for others' enjoyment.  Eryn plays the harp with an intriguing flair, accenting favorites old and new, traditional and contemporary, with a touch of new life.  Eryn offers a variety of classical, Celtic, and contemporary music, and her passion of late has been to perform pop, rock, and indie songs that have never before been attempted on harp, yet have proven to suit it very well. Her style on guitar is that of folk but includes some Stevie Nicks, Carole King, and similar classics.  Her piano repertoire includes everything from traditional hymns to Top 40 hits.  She believes that her work is to be done as unto the Lord, and is therefore committed to excellence in her field.
