Public Radio East is a media sponsor for the Pamlico Opry summer series.  It starts this weekend at the Turnage Theater and is sponsored by the Beaufort County Arts Council and the Beaufort County Traditional Music Association.  Kicking off the series is Raleigh based bluegrass/americana band "The Outliers" this Saturday at 8pm.  Mac McKee speaks with band member Julie Brown about her beginnings in music and her career with The Outliers.

After being vacant for two years, the iconic Turnage Theater will soon open its doors again for theater performances and live musical entertainment.  This week on the Down East Journal, we talk to the executive director of the Beaufort County Arts Council about the non-profits plans for the century old venue for the arts.  And, we explore how new telecommunication technology is helping diabetes patients living in rural areas connect with specialist at East Carolina University.
