St. Paddy's Day Concert: Stringer's Ridge
Saturday, March 7, 7:00pm
Creative Arts Guild Jonas Hall
On a cold New Year’s Eve in 2017, three musicians met at the John C. Campbell Folk School in North Carolina; they became friends, started jamming together,and created a new trio, Stringer’s Ridge. The band crosses musical & geographic boundaries—playing mostly instrumental tunes, with diverse and eclectic inﬂuences and a focus on old time, folk, Celtic, and string band music that can veer off into other eclectic/world/ﬁddle genres at a moment’s notice. Musicians: Tom Morley - ﬁddle, guitar, vocals; Bryant Haynes – guitar and vocals; Fran Morley – bodhran and msc percussion.
“In a relatively short time, this band has ﬁrmly established itself as a beloved favorite in the local [Chattanooga area] scene, particularly among folk enthusiasts, to the point that they have become regulars on the festival circuit and secured a regular rotating gig at The Honest Pint’s Irish Saturday Night series.” Marc T. Michael, music editor, The Pulse. “Talented and energetic they are ultimately entertaining!” says Michael Gray of River City Sessions. (River City Sessions is a collaboration of poets, authors, story tellers and musicians whose work is all about contemporary southern culture, “reclaimed and unchained”.)
Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors over 65 and all students. Light refreshments will be available. Contact Music Director Lisa Elders at 706-259-1822 or email@example.com with questions.
