The Dismembered Tennesseans will play at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 23, at the Stecoah Valley Cultural Arts Center. It was back in 1945 when a group of students got together and began singing and playing a brand of Bluegrass music that has gone on now for more than 65 years. The name Dismembered Tennesseans seemed good enough a name for a bunch of teenagers who had no long-range plans, and they sang their way through school. But somehow the music never stopped, and the band stayed together for the next six decades, singing and laughing their way across the country.
The concert is preceded by two dinner seatings, served family style at the Stecoah Kitchen. Dinner seatings are at 5 and 6:15 p.m. Reservations are required by calling 828.479.3364. Concert tickets can be purchased in-person at the Stecoah Gallery, by phone, or on the web at www.stecoahvalleycenter.com.
