Likewise, "Mountain Stage," the national weekly two-hour radio show produced by West Virginia
Public Broadcasting, will have a show. British singer-songwriter Beth Orton was the first act announced.
And 25 juried artisans will take part in the Art Fair at Capitol Market.
"We had no idea how the artists would respond," said Betty Rivard, FestivALL art fairs director. "But the response was phenomenal."
A lot of hard work by many good people goes into the various parts that will make up FestivALL Fall.
Joining Groce and Rivard in the official announcement of FestivALL at a press conference at the Capitol Market were Emily Wall, chairwoman of Taste-of-All Charleston; East End Main Street Director Ric Cavender; Tammy Borstnar, director of Capitol Market; and mayoral assistant Rod Blackstone.
Charleston has many assets, including its location and its rivers, but the best thing the city has going is its people. FestivaALL Fall sounds like fun.
