Lost Colony, Piedmont Craftsmen's Fair, And Three Lobed Recordings
Christopher Holmes and Lost Colony
When the credits run on the film Lost Colony, you're going to see a lot of one name: Christopher Holmes. He's the director, writer, executive producer, and editor of the film. Holmes' work tells the tale of teenage Loren living along the Outer Banks of North Carolina, navigating an over-protective mother, the pregnancy of his girlfriend, and the absence of his father.
The annual Piedmont Craftsmen's Fair takes place November 21st and 22nd at The Benton Convention Center in downtown Winston-Salem. It features more than 120 artisans from across the Southeast, working in clay, wood, glass, leather, metal, printmaking, and much more. Attendees also have the opportunity to view demonstrations of some of these techniques.
Three Lobed Recordings
For the past 15 years, Cory Rayborn has been running Three Lobed Recordings. The Jamestown, North Carolina-based record label is somewhat boutique in nature - underground music, limited editions, a focus on vinyl, and emphasis on detail and quality over quantity. The music the label releases is far flung in terms of genere - from guitar virtuosos like Daniel Bachman, Steve Gunn and William Tyler, to the psych rock of Wooden Wand & Bard Pond, to legendary noisemakers like Sonic Youth and Sun City Girls.The label is celebrating its 15th anniversary with Parallelogram - it's a 5 LP collection housed in letterpressed matchbook style packaging. The set has already earned an 8.4 out of 10 from noted tastemaking music website Pitchfork. It includes new and unreleased music from Kurt Vile, Thurston Moore, Yo La Tengo, Hiss Golden Messenger, and many more.
