The Elizabethton Covered Bridge Jams will open the summer music series a little earlier than usual this year with two kick-off concerts in May.
Victor Lawson and Boogie Chillen will kick off the music series with a concert at 7 p.m. May 21. The next weekend, Downtown Country will present a concert at 7 p.m.
“We look forward to another successful season of music and entertainment,” said David Nanney, Recreation Manager.
Covered Bridge Jams is a weekly concert series that runs from June through August. The weekly events will feature a variety of music ranging from country, bluegrass, blues and rock on Saturday nights from 7-9 p.m. at Covered Bridge Park.
As a part of Covered Bridge Jams again this year, there will be a special bluegrass event on June 11 beginning at 5 p.m. called “Covered Bridge Bluegrass Jamboree.” The night will feature Russell Moore & III Tyme Out. This group has had regular Grand Ole Opry appearances and 7 IMBA Vocal Group of the Year Awards, 6 Male Vocalist of the Year Awards, and numerous other accolades. This group has solidified its place as one of the hottest groups in bluegrass since May of 1991. The Trinity Valley Travelers will also be a part of the program.
“We are extremely excited about this year’s concert series and hope that citizens in this community and those in our surrounding areas will come out and enjoy some great music in a beautiful park setting,” said Nanney. “Covered Bridge Jams is a special event that showcases local musicians and the beauty of our historic park and downtown Elizabethton.”
All Covered Bridge Jams Concerts are free to the public.
“The Elizabethton Parks & Recreation Department is thrilled to present its 8th season of Covered Bridge Jams and hope families will come out and enjoy the music and atmosphere,” Nanney said.
