Music City Roots Live From The Factory is paying tribute to guitar legend Chet Atkins this week in one of two special shows happening Tuesday and Wednesday (July 7-8) as it kicks off its summer 2015 season. Tuesday evening welcomes artists and guests of the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society convention for a stellar show featuring some of the best finger-pickers in the world. The lineup includes performances by John Knowles, The Hot Club Of Nashville, Richard Smith, Thom Bresh, Jonathan Brown, and Parker Hastings. The evening will be capped off with a giveaway of a hand-made, $2,000 Maton acoustic guitar.
Wednesday night will kick off Roots’ regular summer schedule, with a diverse lineup of vocalists including Virginian Caroline Spence, funky soul band The Broomestix, singer/songwriter Matthew Fowler, and country hitmaker Pam Tillis.
Show times are 7 p.m. both nights, and tickets are available at musiccityroots.com, at Grimey’s record store, or at the Factory, and are $10 general admission and $15 limited reserved. Those not able to make the shows can watch them live-streamed on the website on Wednesday at 7 p.m. CST or listen to them live on Hippie Radio 94.5 FM. Jim Lauderdale serves as host of the popular local roots music series.
