James Taylor Tribute:
Sweet Baby James

March 12, 2021 • 7:30pm

Happy Birthday JT! Nashville’s Sweet Baby James — America’s #1 James Taylor tribute — brings his solo-acoustic “Walking Man” tour to Sumter on March 12 (James Taylor’s actual birthday!). Bill Griese, aka “Sweet Baby James”, sings & plays so much like Taylor, you can close your eyes and imagine you're listening to the legend in person. Come hear your favorites, like Fire & Rain, You've Got a Friend, Shower the People, Sweet Baby James, and more. And see why audiences call SBJ "The next best thing to seeing James himself!"

An Evening in the Round
with Linda Davis

April 10, 2021 • 7:30pm

There is something about a song that is written from real life experience that can take you back to a time and place. It can make you laugh, cry, or just appreciate the sound of a soulful county voice.  An Evening in the Round delivers all the above. Plan to join us at the Sumter Opera House for this intimate night of acoustic music starring Grammy winner Linda Davis and hit song writers Lang Scott and Bill Whyte on April 10th!
