    2. Free concerts @ Martin Luther King Park
      7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

      The From Africa to Appalachia Foundation, in conjunction with Morristown Parks and Recreation, are presenting two free concerts featuring some of the best musicians in East Tennessee.

      On Saturday, August 30, at 7 p.m., The Streamliners will be bringing their high-energy big band/jazz music to Martin Luther King Park.

      Jenna and Her Cool Friends will bring their amazing blues sound to Fred Miller Park on Saturday, October 4, at 6:30 p.m.

      The Streamliners is a 19-piece volcanic explosion of high-energy big band music.

      Led by Morristown native Michael Spirko, the Streamliners is comprised of some of the best improvising jazz musicians in the area. According to Nate Arthur of The Daily Beacon, “They are a bona fide jazz dance band whose members have good chops and clearly love and understand the involved music they play. They fluidly blend the blues, bebop and traditional swing with a jump – inflection, and the boys have style to boot.”

      With a reverence for the rich tradition of the music, the group performs swing tunes of past big bands along with vocal icons like Sinatra and Joe Williams.

      According to Streamliners leader Michael Spirko, the group plans to do a tribute to two of the greatest big band / jazz musicians of all time, Count Basie and Duke Ellington.

      Listen to some of their music on their website: wwwthestreamliners.com.

      Vivacious vocalist Jenna Jefferson gathered Her Cool Friends-Michael “Crawdaddy” Crawley (harmonica/vocals), “Detroit Dave” Meer (guitar/vocals), Keith Ford (rhythm guitar/vocals), Glyn Loyd (bass/vocals), Kevin Redding (drums), and Ben Maney (keyboards/vocals) – for a Blues Cruise on the river in 2010, and a very cool new blues band with an all-star lineup was born. They became Knoxville’s most popular Blues band almost immediately, playing for appreciative audiences everywhere they went. In 2012, they represented Knoxville at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, making it to the semi-finals in competition with 118 other bands.

      Last year, they were voted “Best Blues Band” in the Metro Pulse readers’ poll and then released their debut CD, “I’m What You Get,” this March.

      Visit their website: www.jennaandhercoolfriends.com for more information about these talented musicians and their CD.

      These concerts are a continuation of a series begun by the From Africa to Appalachia Foundation in the fall of 2013.

      The organization’s president, Sammie Nicely, says, “We wanted to present different genres of music heavily influenced by African American artists.”

      Leading to this year’s jazz and blues concerts were gospel and old time concerts.

      “Thanks to the support of the Parks and Recreation Department and a grant from the Live to Give Foundation,” Nicely adds, “we are able to

      offer free admission to these performances.”

      Artists and crafters will be set up two hours before each show with a variety of high quality work for sale.

      Seating in the parks will be on bleachers.

      Feel free to bring your favorite lawn chair or a blanket to spread out and enjoy an evening of live music.

      10:00 am – 3:00 pm

      Rogersville Local Artists Gallery is celebrating the Harvest Moon Festival on Saturday; September 6 from 10am-3pm.  South Church Street in Rogersville TN is closed off for the festivities which include artists’ booths, music, food and a booth for discount coupons from area shops and restaurants.

      Saying thanks for the harvest at the time that the Harvest Moon shines brightest is an old tradition around the world.  In China this festival is the second most important day of their calendar.   According to Chinese tradition the lady ChangEr lives on the moon with her white pet rabbit.  When the Chinese sent a spaceship and a moon-crawler to the moon, they named the spaceship ChangEr and the crawler YuTi, or Jade Rabbit.

      For several years one of the Gallery artists, Monica Chua from Singapore, has celebrated this holiday with a private party at her home.  This year she asked if it could be a public event; and the Gallery selected September 6 as the day to give local people a chance to experience an artistic and culinary harvest with a Chinese flair and hometown flavor.  There are typical “Moon snacks” provided.

      In addition to the Chinese art on display, there are 30 other artists of various mediums displaying in the Gallery; and guest artists who have their work, will  exhibit in the booths.

      As a part of the festivities, music will be provide by Retha Ferrell, Mark Tyne, Guerry McConnnell and other guests.

      For further information, contact Mr. Ed Bosboom at harvestmoon.rogersville.tn@gmail.com or leave a message at the Gallery, 423-921-7656.

      GREENEVILLE, Tenn. – Going for the hardwood smoked, tasty goodness prize, those who think they know barbecue will be on the Tusculum College campus in September for the first-ever Grills Gone Wild barbecue cookoff and festival.

      The event is scheduled for September 12-13 on the Tusculum College campus. The Grills Gone Wild Barbecue Festival is organized by the Inferno Group of Harrogate, Tenn., and will feature top-flight barbecue masters competing for the $5,000 competition prize.

      On Saturday, the car show begins at 2 p.m. and will include awards for Best of Show, Best Engine, People’s Choice and many others.  The “Run in Glow Motion” 5k Run/Walk begins at 8 p.m., with registration beginning at 6:30 p.m.  A post-race party will be held at 9:30 p.m. Registration for the race includes a gift bag with t-shirt, glow glasses and various glow products.

      Other weekend activities include vendors, inflatable attractions for children, live music and a cornhole tournament.

      This is a Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned event, where the teams will prepare their best ribs, chicken, beef brisket and pork.

      Grills Gone Wild activities will be tied in to Orange Rush weekend on campus, a series of events on the Tusculum campus to encourage engagement among new students joining Tusculum as freshmen or as transfer students.

      “We are very excited to blend the events of this festival with those set for Orange Rush Weekend,” said Dr.  Lisa Johnson, interim vice president for Academic Affairs. Encouraging our students to become part of the community is a big part of what the Orange Rush Weekend wants to achieve.”
