The Wesley Foundation, a division of the United Methodist Campus Ministry,
will begin a series of acoustic musical performances starting on Friday,
Nov. 5 with local musician Sean McCollough.
Enoch Henry, director of the Wesley Foundation, said in a press release
that McCollough is "the perfect choice" to kick off the series.
"The idea is to bring in a variety of local and regional performers whose
lives are an example of active faithfulness," Henry said.
McCollough's work as a community organizer with "Save Our Cumberland
Mountains," a commitment to peace and justice issues and an affection for
his audiences made his selection as a performer an obvious one, Henry
This performance, like others in the series, shouldn't be dubbed
"contemporary Christian music," but music of "faithful living."
McCollough's self-titled debut CD includes songs of joy, enthusiasm for
life and reflective musings on the human condition. The CD will be
available for sale after the performance.
McCollough plays several instruments, including guitar, banjo and hammer
dulcimer. His sounds range from Celtic rhythms to early rock 'n' roll to
Appalachian folk traditions.
The performance will be held in the Parrott Theater on the third floor of
the Wesley Foundation. Doors will open at 7 p.m. Admission to the
performance is free. The Wesley Foundation is a smoke and alcohol free
McCollough promotes his faith through music
