Blue Mother Tupelo at Heritage Center
September 7, 2012 @ 11:00 pm – September 8, 2012 @ 2:00 am
TOWNSEND – Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center’s “Fall Concert Series” will present three concerts in September, premiering on Friday, September 7 with a performance by Blue Mother Tupelo. All the concerts begin at 7 pm and are presented in the Heritage Center’s outdoor amphitheater which has a roof over the entire amphitheater so that concerts take place rain or shine.
Based out of Henderson, near Nashville, Blue Mother Tupelo (BMT) is led by the husband and wife team of Ricky Davis (acoustic & electric guitars, dobro, vocals) and Micol Davis (piano, tambourine, vocals). With the sweet and soaring vocals of Micol, the gritty vocals and greasy slide guitar of Ricky, and their passionate harmonies, the music of BMT is a genre-defying, earthy blend of Delta blues and Appalachian mountain music. BMT has performed at festivals, clubs and special events all over the Southeast and Midwest. They have also performed in New York City at the Museum of Modern Art and the famed nightclub The Bitter End.
The Fall Concert Series is sponsored by Friends of the Heritage Center. Admission to each concert is $5 per person at the door, with Heritage Center members admitted free. Food and beverage concessions are available for purchase on site. No coolers, food, drink, or pets are allowed.
