Music on Malphrus returns Oct. 7 at 7 p.m. at the The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Lowcountry, 110 Malphrus Road in Bluffton.

Scott Ainslie, who has been a musician all his life, will perform. It is said that his mother found him at the family piano picking out melodies from the records she listened to during the day when he was 3 years old.

Coming of age during the Civil Rights era (and subsequently seeking out elder masters of the Appalachian Old-Time, Black Gospel and Blues traditions he has received), Ainslie plays this music with affection, authority, and passion.

General admission is $25 at the door. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. For more information, visit or email or
