Local artist Don Stephens will wrap up the Highland Arts Unlimited season as he brings his talents to the Keyser Presbyterian Church at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 28.
Growing up in Westernport, Stephens began picking out tunes on the piano at the age of five when his grandmother gave his family her old upright.
“Almost immediately I both lost myself and found myself again in my music. It became my retreat, my pastime, and my therapist,” says Stephens who by age 13 was playing in a popular rock and roll band on Friday and Saturday nights and getting up on Sunday morning to play the pipe organ at the United Methodist Church.
