The Ghostlight Series

Knoxville's own musical talent takes center stage!

We’re thrilled to announce The Ghostlight Series! While we aren’t able to bring people together to share live performances right now, we are bringing some of Knoxville’s own musical talent to you in this free streaming series. We know the impact of COVID-19 has on musicians and performers (as well as those behind the scenes), along with venues such as ours. We will be collecting donations during this series that we will split with the featured performers, as we feel it is important to support our local artists. Join us Tuesdays in September at 8pm on our Facebook page or on Vimeo for local music from the Tennessee Theatre stage! 
You can view on your Smart TV, Apple TV, or any tv streaming device through the Vimeo app following the live stream.
September 1 — Kelle Jolly & Will BoydVocalist Kelle Jolly, "The Tennessee Ukulele Lady", is one of East Tennessee's most celebrated jazz musicians. She and her husband, saxophonist Will Boyd, were the 2015 MLK Art Award recipients in Knoxville.

September 15 — Frog & Toad's Dixie Quartet with Brent ThompsonFrog & Toad's Dixie Quartet's focus on dixieland and early swing as well as their relentless dedication to authenticity set them apart in Knoxville. Brent Thompson lends his smooth vocals to their set. 
September 22 — Guy MarshallSpringing from this fertile ground has been Knoxville’s own Guy Marshall, a refreshing departure from the usual fare with their easy to sing along lyrics, infectious country meets alternative melodies and their eccentrically charming frontman, Adam McNulty.
