      We plan a fun and positive experience with a progressive purpose that spotlights talents, businesses, community organizations, and ideas that improve the quality of life in our region.

       

      The late legendary John W. Coltrane was born in Hamlet, NC on September 23, 1926 and passed July 17, 1967 before reaching age 41. He shared his trail-blazing saxophone talents throughout the world alongside other greats like Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Thelonius Monk, and many others.

       

      In his spirit of creativity, we are always seeking talented musicians, singers, dancers, authors, poets, story tellers, painters, artists, and other unique talents. And, we warmly welcome sponsors, vendors, volunteers, natives, visitors, and exhibitors to the Annual John W. Coltrane Music ‘Edu-tainment’ Festival (JCMEF) on Saturday, October 5, 2013, 12pm-7pm at the Waymon Chapel Faith Center, 451 Ghio Osborne Rd., in Hamlet, NC (off Airport Rd).

       

      We hope to focus on premium regional talent and feature diverse types of music—from Classical to Country;...Blues, Bluegrass, and Beach...to Sultry Soul and Sassy Salsa;…we’re talking Ragtime and Reggae to “family-friendly” Rock & Hip-Hop.

       

      We want the whole jazzy gamut: old-school Gospel to new-jack R&B and Go-Go. All ages & cultures are invited.

       

      We are targeting over 20 counties that are around an hour’s radius of anchoring Richmond County, NC, in our culturally rich NC & SC Sandhills region. Come prepared to share gifts, learn local facts, and have loads of family fun!
