Lowcountry Local First Revival

Staff Pick

They could have blogged. They could have sent out a press release or taken out an ad or sent a newsletter to their subscribers. But Lowcountry Local First decided there was another way to spread the gospel: They hosted a revival. Local songwriter Cary Ann Hearst led a dirge of New Orleans-style musicians from the Visitor Center bus shed to an empty storefront on Upper King - breaking through a crowd of faux pro-Walmart protestors - where she led a chorus singing hymns like "We Shall Overcome." "Reverend" Dana Mitchell preached about the importance of shopping local to packed pews and even converted one blue-vested skeptic. It was a surprisingly short event, but one of the most memorable of the year.
