Ryan Humbert w/ Diana Chittester Live at the Lincoln Theatre
August 1, 2014 7:30pm
Two incredible singer-songwriters will take the stage as part of the 'Friday Nights Live' concert series at the Lions Lincoln Theatre. Diana Chittester will open for Ryan Humbert and his band. Americana/pop singer-songwriter Ryan Humbert has played shows with a variety of artists ranging from Elvis Costello and Gin Blossoms, to Shelby Lynne and Train. In 2009, Ryan released 'Old souls, New Shoes,' an independent, fan-funded pop/rock album, featuring members of Third Eye Blind, The Counting Crows, The Black Crowes and more. Ryan is currently supporting his last album 'Sometimes the Game Plays You' which was released nationally by Rock Ridge Music in June 2012, with significant exposure from Sirius XM. Diana Chittester will open the show, sure to enchant the audience with her demanding and boisterous guitar playing style. Using the entire guitar to replace the energy of a full band she has been described as an 'intelligent lyricist' and a 'complex guitar-acrobat.'
Cost: $10 - Tickets may be purchased through www.lionslincolntheatre.com or at the door

Summer Tours at Five Oaks
August 3, 2014 2:00pm and 3:00pm
Five Oaks, home of the Massillon Woman’s Club, was designed and built in the late 1800’s by noted Cleveland architect, Charles F. Schweinfurth for the Walter McClymond family. It is considered one of Mr. Schweinfurth’s most distinguished works. At the turn of the century, 4th Street (then known as Euclid Ave) was internationally known as the “The Showplace of America.” In September 1919, the house became the meeting place for the Massillon Woman’s Club. The mission of the club was to support the war effort of WWI, including rolling bandages, sewing and knitting. This spectacular landmark was entered in the National Register of Historic Places by the National Park Service, U. S. Department of the Interior in 1972. The Massillon Heritage Foundation was organized in 1976 to preserve and restore Five Oaks. Many of the original furnishings are displayed throughout the home.
