This is a party you won’t want to miss!

This outdoor concert is free and open to the public. We’re excited to have Anne Spurrell Darden as our emcee for the evening, and the fabulous Bill and the Belles as our featured band. They’re a  Johnson-City based group with a fabulous retro-country sound and a growing national profile. The Broken Down Ramblers, who are part of ETSU’s Bluegrass, Old-Time, and Root Music Program, will open the show. You’re certain to smile and tap your feet. You may even get up and dance. We wouldn’t blame you!

As for the venue. what better place to hold a party than Tennessee Hills Brewstillery? Their beverages will be available for purchase and there will also be food trucks on site. Door prizes and other giveaways will be part of the program, along with demonstrations of the kinds of digital media artistry that can be created in our newly relocated and expanded Johnson City Center for Art & Technology (JCAAT). This is our invitation to the community to learn more about our non-profit organization, established to provide resources to small creative businesses and entrepreneurs in the Appalachian Highlands.

After the concert, walk a couple of blocks down the street to the JCAAT (714 W Walnut), to a Grand Opening reception. Check out our new location and all that it offers: co-working spaces, dedicated desks, and other workspaces designed to meet the needs of freelancers, remote workers, and digital nomads. Check out our film production studio ( a work in progress, but ready soon), a streaming lab for content creation (think video and podcasting), a photography studio, a recording studio, spaces for meetings and conferences, and more. Light refreshments will be served.

Can’t wait to see you there!
