Rascal Flatts, Jewel Plan Homecoming Gigs
Also going home this month is Alaska-born songstress Jewel. On August 19, she's performing a solo acoustic show at the Mariner Theatre in Homer, Alaska. The concert, which will also feature Jewel's brother, Atz Lee Kilcher, is a benefit for Homer's Bunnell Street Arts Center Artists in Schools program.
"I'm so thankful for this town and all that I have been able to accomplish because of the support I received as a young and aspiring artist," says the singer-songwriter. "When I was 15, I was accepted to Interlochen, an arts school in Michigan, to pursue my studies in visual art and music."
Jewel's hometown of Homer helped her raise the $11,000 she needed to attend that school.
