Hey there, everyone! This is Colleton County’s Arts & Entertainment column, delivered to you weekly. Hopefully, your week has been good so far.

Check them out on YouTube or at PalmettoBlue.com, and get your tickets to this fine night of country and bluegrass with the legendary Ricky Skaggs!

This is a weekly list of businesses and people making a difference in our area –
