Want a great way to spend a leisurely Sunday afternoon? How about joining your neighbors and friends for some good music at Veteran's Park, right in front of South Side School. All shows begin at 3 p.m., and usually last two hours, depending on weather. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy! Admission is free.
Local favorites, The Mudbugs, bring their home-made recipe of zydeco, jazz and good ole' Americana to the park for our first show of the season. This'll be spicier than a hot bowl of jambalaya!
Gather around the microphone friends, returning artists Bill and the Belles offer a contemporary reimagining of a bygone era, breathing new life into the sounds of early country music.
Aug 11 - Joy Blair
Joy is inspired by early and classic country music, soulful songwriting, American roots music, and the Appalachian Mountain region she calls home. Her honest and uniquely crafted lyrics often weave rural imagery with themes of love, family, loss, and life in emotive and compelling songwriting.
Specializing in jazz and pop standards, Combo Price will bring a wide variety of instrumental and vocal swing, groove-funk, and Latin music to the park. These musicians have all been performing regionally for years and met through their involvement in the Tusculum University Jazz Program.
Johnson City singer-songwriters Daniel and Bets Couper have been performing music across Appalachia, combining Daniel’s original music and paying homage to influences such as Dave Matthews Band, Switchfoot, Gregory Alan Isakov, The Oh Hellos, and Glen Hansard. The duo brings their original sound to the park on October 13th, and the show promises to be a smorgasbord for your ears. Daniel and Bets will be performing with their band The Keep.
