Feb 14 Fusion at Fontanel: Amore’ – A Valentine’s Dinner Show Nashville, TN A Valentine’s Dinner Show pairing beautiful music with delicious authentic Italian cuisine and flavorful wines to stimulate the senses. learn more Feb 14 Judah & The Lion Knoxville, TN “Friend of a friend” is the way it all came together, three very different people from very different places, united by a shared love of music. As a band, Judah & the Lion owes much to fate and to the small town feel of Nashville, the city that brought the trio together from scattered parts of the country. The three met while attending Belmont University in the city, introduced to each other through music and mutual friends. “We all had similar stories, despite the fact that we’d grown up in different places,” explains mandolin player Brian Macdonald, “Judah is the Southerner, I’m the Chicago city slicker, and Nate is the laidback, bearded Rocky Mountain guy.” One listen and you can hear the influence of each of their youths. Judah Akers in his Tennessee hometown, listening to the soulful crackle of Ray Charles records, Nate Zuercher, a Colorado kid into rugged rock’n’roll, Macdonald driving through the suburbs of Chicago, blasting everything from Frank Sinatra to Billy Joel. Somehow, all these sounds have come together in Judah & the Lion ’ the old school sincerity of Southern gospel and soul, the energy of rock and the time-tested pop of classics and hits from the past. And through it all, there is the sound too ’ of their shared obsession, the feverishly nostalgic twang of bluegrass, country and traditional folk music. Judah & the Lion is a modern pop band with a feel as old as hills and holler, Akers’ topical lyricism matched with the familiar feel traditional instrumentation ’ mandolin, banjo and the kind of vocal harmonies that make the heart ache. “We’re all very different people but it has been obvious since the day we met that we should make music together,” says banjo-player Nate Zuercher, “Though we’re different, we have similar philosophies as to what is important in life and that is a huge part of what keeps us going strong. We know it is important to enjoy where you’re at, to love the people you’re with and live a bold and passionate life. That looks different for each of us but allows us to relate and understand each other.” learn more Feb 14 Steel Guitar Demonstration: Smith Curry with Bob Grant Nashville, TN Steel guitar demonstration with Smith Curry and Bob Grant. learn more Feb 14 Creative Zone: Lights, Camera, Capture!
