2017 Fireside Concert Series Lineup
October 5: The Von Wamps — Lou, Lynn, and Daniel Wamp anchor a musical venture that crosses genres and generations, performing an eclectic and high-spirited mix of their own compositions as well as covers ranging from folk, swing, and jazz to country, rock, and bluegrass, all to which they add their own acoustic flair. Accomplished players of guitar, mandolin, dobro, and upright bass, they will always surprise and delight, musically.
October 12: Caney Creek Company — An Americana/Folk-Rock/Bluegrass Band established in 2015, made up of Tennessee natives; Katie Bradford (Fiddle/Vocals), Corey Bradford (Guitar), Doug Ford (Bass), Drew Streip (Mandolin), Konstantine Vlasis (Banjo/Vocals). The band has a distinct approach to their craft, which includes traces of gospel, rock and classical music. Using traditional bluegrass instrumentation, they have a natural balance that favors intimate venues. Their chemistry shines through in every performance. From up-tempo bluegrass to ballads, every song resonates with listeners. It's the music you want to hear; the music you'd want your kids to listen to; the melodies you just can't quit humming.
(In conjunction with Outdoor Chattanooga’s Community Campout in the Park.)
October 19: Randy Steele — Combine the influences of John Steinbeck, Earl Scruggs, and Miles Davis and place them into a singer songwriter, the results might sound like Chattanooga Tennessee’s own Randy Steele. Since his introduction into the southeast music scene in 2013 with the award winning Slim Pickins Bluegrass Band, he has consistently been a part of legendary live performances on some of the region’s biggest stages. The release of his first solo album, “Songs from the Suck” in December 2016, combines the Bluegrass and Blues roots he planted decades before with a knack for poignant storytelling.
October 26: Cannon Hunt — Music made in Chattanooga, Tennessee by a local Chattanoogan. Cannon brings classic, southern rock sounds to the stage in both covers and original songs. With a folk-inspired style, this local singer-songwriter incorporates acoustic sounds and harmonies in his songs and is sure to delight young audiences with his energy and charisma on stage.
