ARTIST SERIES EVENT:  THE HUNTS

September 19 – 7 p.m., Center for the Arts., Theatre

Known for their harmony-laced take on alt-folk, The Hunts are a Chesapeake, Virginia-based band of seven siblings who’ve been playing music together almost their entire lives. Twin sisters Jessi and Jenni and five brothers Josh, Jonathan, Jordan, Justin, and Jamison, now ranging in age from 28 down to 19, learned to sing and play violin as young kids and spent much of their childhood performing in their community. After widening their following and playing at theaters, festivals and universities around the country—and teaching themselves to play instruments like mandolin, piano, ukulele, banjo, and drums—The Hunts started experimenting with songwriting and have quickly honed their sound, crafting positive songs that move audiences. Their songs are full of joy, and powerful uplifting themes, and great to sing along to whether you're seeing them live or road trippin' with the music blaring and the windows rolled down. Learn more at www.thehuntsmusic.com.  A Meet the Artist Reception for season ticket holders will be hosted by Tyndall Federal Credit Union.  Tickets ($20 for adults and $10 for ages 18 and under) may be purchased at the Chipola Box Office or online beginning Aug 19.

Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence.
