Molly Tuttle and the Alex Leach Band will perform in a free concert in Oak Ridge on Saturday.
It’s the last Summer Sessions concert of 2019 presented by ORNL Federal Credit Union.
Summer Sessions is a free concert series featuring bluegrass and American bands from throughout the region. Jim Lauderdale, Steve Gulley and the New Pinnacle, The Travelin’ McCourys, Circus No. 9, Ricky Skaggs, and Kentucky Thunder have also performed during the 2019 concert series.
Singer-songwriter Molly Tuttle is known for her flatpicking, clawhammer, and cross-picking guitar prowess, a press release said. She was the first woman to win the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Guitar Player of the Year award.
Opening up for Tuttle will be the Alex Leach Band, a group of young, accomplished musicians led by Leach, an East Tennessee native, the press release said.
“You won’t want to miss performances by these up-and-coming bluegrass artists!” the press release said.
All Summer Sessions concerts are free to the public and hosted from 6-9 p.m. at the outdoor pavilion at Alvin K. Bissell Park in Oak Ridge, located at 1401 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
“The community is invited to bring their lawn chairs and their friends and family for an evening of free Americana roots music,” the press release said. “Local food truck and beverage vendors will be on-site.”
More information will be added as it becomes available.
