Ellison is scheduled to perform on the deck of The Lost Paddle at ACE, Saturday, July 7th at 8:00 pm to celebrate the holiday weekend and announce a partnership between ACE and Ellison's Some Kind of Wonderful Gourmet Seasoning. The show is free, family friendly and open to the public. Ellison, born in a shack built from driftwood on the bank of the Kanawha River in Fayette County and raised in the coalfields of southern West Virginia, pursued his musical dreams and became the songwriter of one of the most recorded and played songs in music history: "(She's) Some Kind of Wonderful" was released in 1967 and gained notoriety with its catchy tune and lyrics. Today Ellison continues to perform on stages around the world bringing people together with music, and now around the dinner table. In 2001, John started Some Kind of Wonderful Foods to produce his own recipes and gourmet seasoning. The seasoning is his own blend, all natural, gluten free, no MSG and low sodium. ACE's kitchen uses Ellison's gourmet seasonings on all their wings as well as a few other food items on The Lost Paddle menu. Try the sauceless wings - they are Some Kind of Wonderful. Ellison's soulful funk performance will be followed by the local folk pop rock band The Parachute Brigade.

Irish Road Bowling – Kanawha State Forest

Irish Road Bowling consists of a ball made of iron and steel that is heavy enough to pick up speed, yet small enough for any person to handle. Besides the basic rules and terms, all you do is hurl this 28 oz. sized "bowl" with an underhand motion over a 1 to 2 mile country road and see how far it goes! Scored like golf, the fewest number of shots from the start to the finish line wins. Irish Road Bowling is similar to fast pitch softball, except with a running start. It's also like bowling if you had enough room to run 10 or 15 yards. Irish Road Bowling is ideal for young athletes or seniors who are looking to enjoy a scenic walk on a country road, combined with an ancient and exciting, but not overly strenuous, sport! Located just seven miles south of Charleston, West Virginia, Kanawha State Forest is in close proximity to the heavily populated Kanawha Valley and is a recreational haven. The 9,300-acre forest is noted among naturalists for its diverse wildflower and bird populations. Rich cove forest sites provide nesting habitat for 19 species of wood warblers, a feature which draws birders from as far away as Canada. The forest offers some of West Virginia’s best special hikes in winter, spring and fall. Team Registration, 12:30 p.m. Saturday 1:30 pm: Bowling Begins. Contact Kanawha State Forest at 304-558-3500, email [email protected], or call Road Master Stephen Wallington 304-638-3224 for more information.

Art After Dark

Recurring after-party following the City of Charleston's ArtWalk.

Wheeling Symphony Orchestra presents “Bach Double & Mozart”

Stravinsky, Bach, Danielpour & Mozart André Raphel, conductor Rachel Stegeman, violin Juan Jaramillo, violin Igor Stravinsky’s charming “Pulcinella Suite” begins this all WSO concert. Stravinsky called this work his “discovery of the past” and “gateway” to his future compositions. The timeless Bach “Double Violin Concerto” highlights the virtuosity of our very own Rachel Stegeman and Juan Jaramillo. The lively concerto is characterized by the expressive counterpoint between the two violins. The concert continues with Richard Danilepour’s “Adagietto for Strings” a WSO commission that Danielpour called “…an exciting fusion, being written as it is for Wheeling—one of the smallest cities to maintain an orchestra of this caliber…” The concert concludes with Mozart’s final “Symphony, No. 41” (Jupiter) where Mozart demonstrates his sheer brilliance as a composer. Its emotional range prefigures the vast expressive canvas that foreshadow the symphonies of Beethoven.
