Gnu Fall Festival…a HUGE Success!

The WEGL-sponsored Gnu Fall Festival was a tremendous success!  Held on the lawn of the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities (better known as Pebble Hill), the Gnu Fall Festival was a fundraiser for Gnu Arts, the nonprofit that runs The Gnu’s Room bookstore in Auburn, Alabama. It also runs a new publishing imprint called Solomon & George, and soon will be operating the Gnu Mobile, bringing arts, music and literacy education to the surrounding community.

Taking place on Saturday, October 13, 2012, the festival featured 8 straight hours of music, plus vendors from as far away as Savannah, Georgia. The music lineup consisted of local musicians: Teacup & The Monster, Ellington Way, Low June, Less Than Heroes, Shanna Henderson, Katie Martin, The Tony Brook Band & Adventure the Great.  All told, the Gnu Fall Festival raised more than $1,000, and received a great response from all who attended!
