Where in Carolina Country is This?
The February “Where Is This” photo by Brunswick Electric member David Anderson features the John William Coltrane Mural, located on the back of the old Hamlet Theatre on Main Street, at the corner of Vance and Raleigh Streets, in Hamlet. Artist Scott Nurkin created the mural for the North Carolina Musicians Mural Project, which highlights NC musical trailblazers across the state. The legendary jazz saxophonist Coltrane was born in Hamlet in September 1926. His family soon moved to High Point, where a statue of Coltrane is located downtown. The winning entry chosen at random from all correct submissions came from Beth Meacham of Ellerbe, a Pee Dee Electric member.
