Angela Easterling - A Lifesong Journey

Angela Easterling - Top Ten Finalist
Wildflower! Singer/Songwriter
Folk ballads are a great way to tell a story and Angela Easterling takes this craft to a new level with her angelic voice. Bluegrass and country were all around, but Angela didn’t listen to it while growing up because she preferred story telling musical theatre. It wasn’t until she was older that Angela started listening to other types of musicians such as folk singer-songwriter Emmylou Harris. The Grammy winning vocalist inspired Angela to follow and appreciate other great singers like Neil Young, The Byrds, Pete Seeger, and Joni Mitchell.

Angela was raised in the South Carolina foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Much of her childhood was spent on a farm that has been in her family for seven generations since 1791. She embraces her heritage in a big way as a writer and an artist on her debut album, "Earning Her Wings.”

2015 Wildflower! Art Guitar Auction Rocks Community Fundraiser

Artist: Misty-Roze Carnell
2015 Wildflower! Art Guitar Auction
Hundreds of hours have been donated by local artists and organizations in an effort to create a unique piece of art to be auctioned in the 2015 Wildflower! Art Guitar Program & Auction.  Electric and acoustic guitars are painted, chopped, molded, airbrushed, layered, built, and completely redesigned at the sole discretion of the artist.  The collection annually displays new themes, rocking embellishments, and impressive conversions of the traditional instrument.
 
This year the donated guitars reflect an extraordinary group of artists and their individual vision of wild, musical masterpieces.  See the pictures in the Wildflower! Art Guitar Program & Auction album.
