Learn more about Fireside Outdoor Concert Series.
Fireside is a free, family-friendly, outdoor concert series that gathers around a campfire at the City of Chattanooga’s Greenway Farm Park Thursday evenings in October from 7 - 9 p.m. The series is sponsored by Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union and hosted by Outdoor Chattanooga which invites all ages to come out, unplug and enjoy an autumn evening in the park listening to local musicians. Bring your blankets and chairs, marshmallow roasting stick and perhaps a picnic supper; then sit back and enjoy live music in a rustic outdoor setting. Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union’s sponsorship will provide a different family-friendly activity each evening.
The stage is located on the porch of the Sniteman Log Cabin behind the gardens at the park. Each night will feature a special themed activity and/or giveaway by our friends at TVFCU, so come early. Supplies are limited and will only be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
2018 Fireside Concert Schedule:
October 4 ~ Lou Wamp and The Bluetastics
Lou Wamp and a company of veteran pickers both honor the bluegrass tradition and give it a new kick. Instrumental prowess and vocal style showcase fine original material based in bluegrass, western swing, & swampy blues. They love to infuse the music with their own arrangements, original compositions, and nods to other genres of sound.
The first 200 concertgoers will receive a complimentary flashlight, which will be perfect for guiding your way to the car after the concert.
October 11 ~ Lew Card
Lew Card is not just a songwriter, he is a song. He is a story. He is a Chattanoogan and he has come a long way in recent years, with four albums and over 1,000 social media followers. Lew plays delicate acoustics with grand folk-singing and plenty of Southern grit.
200 s’more kits will be available, courtesy of TVFCU and Food City.
October 18 ~ Rising Fawn Social Club
Aspiring to play for tips on the street corner, the Rising Fawn Social Club is a neighborhood collective of 6-9 musicians during any given performance. A core of traditional bluegrass and country gets kicked up with the addition of the dobro, percussion instruments, and even a trumpet without ever losing sight of its banjo picking lead.
Enjoy freshly popped locally-grown popcorn over the fire, compliments of Crabtree Farms and TVFCU.
October 25 ~ Randy Steele
Randy Steele offers a musical journey and masterful storytelling through his original banjo music, melding the best elements of Bluegrass and Country music. He can be heard here and across the oceans as longtime frontman with Slim Pickins or with his concurrent career as an emerging solo artist.
As the fall nights turn cooler, register to win one of a dozen stadium blankets from TVFCU.
