Friday, June 11 will be the premier of theTownsend Sunset Music Series with a performance by Wild Blue Yonder. All concerts start at 7:00 pm at the Heritage Center’s outdoor ampitheater. The ampitheater does have a roof so that concerts may be presented rain or shine.
Wild Blue Yonder is back for their fifth appearance and is the only band to perform every year since the Series began. Also back by popular demand are Labron Lazenby & LA3, who made it to the finals of this year’s International Blues Challenge in Memphis; Hokum’s Heroes, from Boston; John Myers Band, who recently released a new CD “I Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere”; EG Kight, the “Georgia Songbird”; Y’uns, a “seriously silly” jugband from Knoxville; and Steve Kaufman, 3-time national guitar champion from Maryville. Making their Sunset Music Series debut this year are the Lonesome Coyotes, Knoxville’s most celebrated band to play in the western swing and country-rock style.
The Sunset Music Series is sponsored by BankEast. Admission to the concerts is $4.00 and may be purchased at the door. Heritage Center members are admitted free. For further information, call the Center at 865-448-0044.
