The Sarasota Chalk Festival is seeking volunteers who are passionate about the cultural arts, community and being an integral park of making the 2014 Festival the BEST yet! The 2014 festivities, November 10-17, will showcase hundreds of international, national and local artists that are skilled, professional, student and amateur artists. With the support of volunteers the artists will turn average street pavement into a museum in motion using chalk as their medium to create oversized traditional and 3D masterpieces. Events will be held each night giving the public the opportunity to meet the artists in a social setting with music, dance, art, food and spirits. Help is needed now with all aspects of the festival, social media, fundraising events, and much more. Positions during the festival include greeting, sales of beverages, office help, heaving lifting, parking assistance, supplies coordination, photography and videography. Leadership roles are also available. For more information about becoming a Chalk Festival Volunteer please contact Jody Jorgensen at (941) 954-5800 or email volunteer@chalkfestival.org or register online at www.chalkfestival.org/volunteer-signup-form/ .

Enjoy performances by Grandpa's Cough Medicine and the Florida Mountain Boys, each playing their own brand of bluegrass! Grandpa's Cough Medicine falls squarely into what is being called “outlaw bluegrass” by many folks; with songs about corrupt politicians, executing would-be thieves, heavy metal induced killing sprees, the joys of pickin’ and many a drinkin’ song. The Florida Mountain Boys play a wide variety of favorites from Old & In the Way, to O’Brother Where Art Thou, and more contemporary songs; no show is ever the same. Whether it’s their high tempo tunes or their sweet soulful harmonies, everybody finds something to love.
