Fireside

 

Fireside is a free, outdoor concert series that began in 2011 with the simple concept of getting families to come out to a local park, unplug from technology and listen to live music gathered around a fire! The concerts are graciously sponsored by Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union in partnership with Outdoor Chattanooga.

 All ages are invited to enjoy an evening in a rustic setting to listen to live local music gathered around a couple of small campfires behind the reconstructed 1850’s Sniteman Cabin which is located at the back of the park behind the gardens. Concerts occur 7 – 9 PM every Thursday in October at Greenway Farm Park.  Bring your blankets and chairs, marshmallow roasting sticks and dancing shoes! The Greenway Farm Park is more rustic, without food vendors and the stage is located on the porch of the Sniteman Log Cabin behind the gardens. Pack your own picnic supper to enjoy during the concert.

The NEW Quintet

Thursday, October 20 | 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Nicholas Edward Williams is a multi-instrumentalist and storyteller who is dedicated to “playing it forward” by preserving the songs and styles that have shaped our country: Ragtime, Piedmont blues, Traditional Folk and Old Time.  Joining him as The NEW Quintet are Emma Dubose (Fiddle, Harmony), Jade Watts (Upright Bass, Harmony), Gordon Inman (Clarinet, Harmony) and Cody Ray (Guitar, Slide, Harmony). Together, this group adds a wall of sound with big harmonies and lush textures that deepen the broad range of traditional and original material put out by Williams.

Stringer’s Ridge Band

Thursday, October 27 | 7:00pm – 9:00pm

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.
