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 lisae@creativeartsguild.org with questions.
