Ten out of Tenn in Knoxville

Ten Out of Tenn

Last night I had the strangest dream. I dreamed I was in a new venue full of people, brilliant musicianship, and general Christmas cheer and frivolity. A stage full of Tennessee’s finest artists were gathered in one place to share their gifts.


No, wait, THAT WASN’T A DREAM! That was Ten out of Tenn, stopping in Knoxville on their Christmas tour. And what a blast it was! The venue was The Square Room, downtown Knoxville’s newest music venue located on Market Square. I must admit, I was only familiar with about two of the ten artists that performed, but I was impressed by all of them:

The performances included traditional Christmas songs, as well as several original songs. The artists rotated in and out of the spotlight and complemented each other instrumentally and vocally. Everyone was comfortable with themselves and their fellow artists, and that made the show for me. Well, that, and the fact that they covered Bob Dylan’s “I Shall Be Released” in their encore.

I’m pumped to see what these fine musicians will accomplish in the future, and I can’t wait to go back to The Square Room. Be sure and check out the Ten out of Tenn – Christmas
