Music @ MAC presents The Whistle Pigs with the Swamp Tigers
Dates: Jul 24, 2014
Times: 7 PM
Venue: Maiden Alley Cinema & Gallery

 The Swamp Tigers are a high-energy rockabilly group based in Southern Illinois. They have merged various styles of calssic country, rockabilly, jump blues, and surf music into a very cohesive, unique sound that all ages can enjoy. They formed in Carbondale, IL, in 2008. There's so much good music out there and The Swamp Tigers draw inspiration from a lot of it. From Honky Tonk hero's like Webb Pierce, Johnny Horton and Hank Williams to newer artists like Dwight Yoakam and JD McPherson and everywhere in between. It's like Nashville, Memphis, and Bakersfield had a baby. 


The hill country of Southern Illinois is home to one of the  Midwest's friendliest and most talented musical trios- The Whistle Pigs. Their live shows, consisting of vocal harmonies, banjo, accordion, and upright bass, are energetic yet humourous and interactive, making them suitable for the sit-down crowd as well as the dancers and teh drinkers. Traveling over 50,000 miles and playing around 200 shows annually, The Whistle Pigs have had the honor to share the stage with the likes of The Ledgendary Shack Shakers, Split Lip Rayfield, and Black Oak Arkansas while playing a range of venues.

On day two, he will demonstrate surface decorating techniques, like incising and inlaying; the use of under glaze decals; and painted terra sigalatta. He will discuss ceramic history, painting, and orchestrating glaze thickness to create emotion through heat and gravity. Deller will encourage questions and open-ended discussion centered on ceramics and creativity.

Paducah School of Art & Design (PSAD) presents a new program of studio workshop experience through the 2014 Master Artists Workshops program in ceramics, jewelry and metals. These two, three and five-day studio intensives will bring leading artists and educators from across the country to Paducah during the summer months to conduct demonstration and hands-on workshops in their respective areas of expertise.

PSAD's inaugrual Master Artists Workshops program will be hosted in its world-class ceramics and jewelry studios in Madison Hall, located within Paducah's historic LowerTown Arts District. The workshop program will expand in the coming years to include sculpture, drawing, painting and photography as PSAD completes additional campus expansions.
