Scott McMahan has one of those voices that go with his songs. I'll give you a listen here in a minute.
Friday June 14 Doors open at 6:30 Music at 7:30
$10 cover, BYOB, and BYO food (We highly recommend the Market Street Bistro right next door for supper)
We met Scott at Hippie Jack's festival when he filled in for a musician who had to cancel because his father got very sick. Jay Clark told Scott, who was there as a volunteer, to get up there and do something and that's exactly what he did. Tore the place up and got a standing O. Then Hippie tore off his volunteer bracelet and gave him a musician's pass to the beer tent, which is an extremely high honor at Hippie's place. Scott has opened for Delbert McClinton at the Bijou and openined for Randall Bramblett's CD release show in Asheville this past weekend.
We get him Friday June 14 at the room next door to the Market Street Bistro, which we highly recommend for supper.
ABOUT OUR MUSIC SERIES
Music at Market Street combines our serious affection for singer songwriters, live performance of original music, and socializing with our friends and families. We started it up in the Spring of 2012 on a whim. The idea was to have a family friendly atmosphere where we could chat and visit, share food and adult beverages if we so choose, and listen to some of the best music in Tennessee. So far it's working. We meet new people every week and folks are now driving out from Knoxville and other far flung places to experience their favorite artists in a small room with great acoustics. The only complaint we ever hear is "Why didn't you tell me about this sooner?"
The people who play for us are very good. They write and record songs and are excellent musicians. We tend to be heavy on Americana genre but we recently had R&B virtuoso Jason Eskridge, so good music is good music. Most of our artists are suggested by the artists who have played at Market Street, on the theory that musicians know music. So far everyone has been better than good. We also pester artists we like after hearing them on stage at one venue or another and we try to get people you would have to go to the Bijou, Jammin' at Hippie Jack's music festival, or someplace like that to hear. They bring their CD's and other stuff for purchase. We pay artists all we can and, after expenses, donate any extra to charities we like. We take no money ourselves.
Market Street is located immediately to the right of Market Street Bistro and just to the left of Food City at Ladd Landing in Kingston. The official address is 1000 Ladd Landing Boulevard, Kingston, TN.
Take Exit 352 then left and go one half mile north (left off I 40 away from Kingston proper). Turn right into Ladd Landing at the 3 way stop and then the first left into the shopping center and there we are.
