2021 Fireside Concert Schedule
Thursday, October 7 ~ Lou Wamp and The Bluetastics
Lou Wamp and a company of veteran pickers both honor the bluegrass tradition and give it a new kick. Instrumental prowess and vocal style showcase fine original material based in bluegrass, western swing, & swampy blues. They love to infuse the music with their own arrangements, original compositions, and nods to other genres of sound.
Thursday, October 14 ~ The Briars
The Briars are a Chattanooga based Americana duo featuring modern, melodic songs with acoustic textures rooted in traditional American music. Jerris Schmidt and Robert Lovett, share lead and harmony vocals, on guitar and percussion, write their own music and cover favorite artists, such as Brandi Carlile, Bob Dylan, Hank Williams, and Gillian Welch
Thursday, October 21 ~ Nicholas Edward Williams
Nicholas Edward Williams blends American folk songwriting with Piedmont blues and Travis-style fingerpicking, melodic vocals, rolling harmonica, whistling and a stomp box, crossing with his own brand of satire, simple honesty, and vivid imagery that translates into energetic live shows. The variety of his influences is evident in his songs, from Doc Watson to Mississippi John Hurt, and John Prine, creating a sound that feels familiar, yet new.
Thursday, October 28 ~ Stringer’s Ridge Band
Stringer’s Ridge is a string band that crosses musical and geographic boundaries, playing mostly instrumental tunes, with diverse and eclectic influences and a strong focus on Celtic, Old-Time, and String Band music—that could veer off into other eclectic/world/fiddle genres at a moment’s notice.
