Sollee’s appearance for the GSI Earth Day event was the lead “Best Bet” in the Lexington Herald-Leader’s Sunday Living section.

Georgetown, KY – Georgetown College presents a special Earth Day program featuring renowned Kentucky cellist/songwriter/guitarist Ben Sollee on Sunday, April 22, 2012, from 5-8 p.m. in front of Giddings Hall on College Street in Georgetown.

Sponsored by the student-led Georgetown Sustainability Initiative (GSI), it is free and open to the public.

With the theme “Change: The Earth Day Event with Ben Sollee,” the event is an opportunity for networking with the community-at-large in a family, festival-like atmosphere that showcases issues of sustainability, fair trade, and/or social justice.

Singer-songwriter Nick Pennington, a senior from Georgetown, will also perform at the Earth Day event, which is coordinated by GSI leader Morgan Reeves, a sophomore from Louisville.

It also serves to educate on the mission of the GSI which is to implement sustainable alternative lifestyles on campus and better the global community.

This special Earth Day program featuring Mr. Sollee (www.bensollee.com), whose song writing focuses on social justice and environmental issues, is scheduled for Giddings Lawn. In the event of rain, the program will be held inside nearby Cralle Student Center.

Georgetown College senior Nick Pennington will also perform, presenting acoustic folk music.
