If you haven’t attended one of the FREE Friday night concerts, you only have four more chances to do so, as the series comes to an end on August 31st.
This Friday night the Downtown Dalton Summer Music Series has another GREAT concert lined up. Blue Mother Tupelo will take the stage at Burr Park at 7:30PM. Check out this brief description about Blue Mother Tupelo from their own mouths;
“Rising up from the bluffs of Memphis to the mountains of east Tennessee, through the Delta lowlands and muddy banks of Mississippi – Blue Mother Tupelo oozes a kind of southern soul & roots rock that defies boundary or definition.
Blue Mother Tupelo is Ricky & Micol Davis. That’s us. Micol is pronounced “Michael”, by the way, & we’ve been making music together since before we were married, back in 1994.
Our musical life together began in Knoxville, Tennessee when we got started as a band in ’95 & then took us to Nashville in 1998. There have been so many peaks & valleys, precious memories & lessons, along the way.
It’s always a gift to share the stage with other musicians who become like family, sometimes having traveled many days in a row together on tour; other times, 1 night at a time. Quite often it is just us 2 – a duo of dreamers – connected by a tie that binds our gypsy hearts, ramblers of the mind … sometimes in pure, joyful agreement & sometimes in an energetic differing of spirit … always seeking honest, self connection with trust that the wavelengths reach far beyond ourselves.
Some folks have had us on their recordings, several of which might be some of your favorite performers & others whom are not familiar to the mainstream. Most of our songs are self-penned but we’ve written songs with beautifully gifted songwriters, shared stages with some of our heroes, had songs in movies & on soundtracks, our voices on commercials & TV, played in juke joints, honky tonks, stages big & small at festivals, writers’ rounds, happy hours, & even busking on streets. Each experience has been a blessing …
… the biggest blessing of all is to have you WITH US everywhere we go.”
Burr Park is located at 101 S. Hamilton Street right in the heart of Historic Downtown Dalton. ALL are welcome, so bring your families and friends, some blankets or lawn chairs, and enjoy some Live Music.
