Heritage Center invites Y’uns to its Fall Concert Series

TOWNSEND, TN - Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center invites all Y’uns to its "Fall Sunset Music Series" starting September 5 with a performance by The Y'uns Band and another concert on September 12 by Blue Mother Tupelo (BMT).

The Y'uns Band, or more properly, just plain Y'uns, will bring some seriously silly musical antics to the stage. Y'unsis a goodtime acoustic band that blends jugband music with elements of folk, swing, country, and blues. They play just about everything from Fats Waller to Muddy Waters to Roger Miller to The Beatles, replete with kazoos, whistles, sirens, and yodeling. Audience members are warned to listen at their own risk. Side effects may include giddiness, lightheadedness, lightheartedness, nonstop laughter, and an uncontrollable desire to quit your day job and/or take-up the kazoo.

Based out of Henderson, near Nashville, Blue Mother Tupelo (BMT) is the husband and wife duo 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.

Both concerts begin at 7:00 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.

The Fall Sunset Music Series is sponsored by First Tennessee Foundation. Admission to each concert is $5.00 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. For more information, visit
