Darius Rucker has become South Carolina’s biggest-ever country music star. You may now stop calling him Hootie.
Veterans of the local music scene talk about a time, 20 or so years ago, when it was still possible to hit local bars like the Old Post Office and see bands on the brink of national fame. At the time Hilton Head played host to a good number of future stars, including Duncan Sheik and Edwin McCain, but nobody blew up nearly like the University of South Carolina classmates in Hootie and the Blowfish — which you already know if you ever left your house in 1994-95.
Popular music marched on, of course, but Hootie stuck around, dropping occasional records, returning to Hilton Head for big local gigs at Honey Horn and Sea Pines and generally maintaining a career of consistent, unsurprising solidity.

The Hilton Head Dance Theatre celebrates its anniversary the old-fashioned way: By staging a locals-filled “Nutcracker” to usher in the holiday season.
Walk into the lobby of the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina during the run of the Hilton Head Dance Theatre’s “The Nutcracker,” and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported into The Land of Sweets, the world dreamed up in Tchaikovsky’s holiday classic. “The Nutcracker” has long served as the unofficial start to the island’s holiday season thanks to the work of the Hilton Head Dance Theatre, a nonprofit organization marking its 25th year of fostering an interest in dance as an art form. “The HHDT has evolved from the intimate Dunnagan’s Alley stage to the beautiful Arts Center stage,” said Kelly Ogden, a former president on the board of the HHDT. “The student dancers have danced roles that some career dancers will only dream of.”

In March, Mose Allison released his first album in 15 years, “The Way of the World,” and watched as warm reviews started coming in from venues such as Rolling Stone, the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe, Time and more. (The record scored a highly respectable 78 on the review aggregator site metacritic.com.) “(California-based label) Anti-has done more publicity than anybody on any record I’ve ever made, so I’ve been written about in a lot of places that don’t usually write about me,” Allison demurs.
