The Orchard Band
at River City Sessions this Friday, August 9.
We'll be performing a set of mostly original material at the Camphouse this Friday night as part of the monthly River City Sessions.
Show starts at 7:30pm. It is hosted by Signal Mountain's own Mike Gray.  

According to his website:

Music and the spoken word are two of the most long standing and
powerful forms of communication in the south. It's great to see the River City
Sessions carrying on those great traditions here in the Scenic City.
Jeff Hunter, Director - Tennessee Wild

The River City Sessions is a collaboration of poets, authors,
story tellers and musicians whose work honors life in the south and the
tradition of literature and music which best express our unique culture. As a
child I sat in the shaded yard of my grandparent's home as friends, family and neighbors dropped by to entertain
each other with a mixture of stories and music on Sunday afternoons. The yard was filled with the sound of
traditional music and the telling of tall tales as well as the blending of many voices rising together in song. The
River City Sessions is bringing that front yard to The Camp House. Once a month local as well as regional acts
will join together to deliver a variety of entertainment, some old, some new, but all paying homage to “The South”. The show is broadcast two weeks later on WUTC 88.1 locally and across the internet on
