KMA and the Shed Kick Off 2011 With Concert Series

We’re still waiting for official announcements about Tennessee Shines and Sundown in the City, but a couple of other notable local concert series are up and running, or will be soon.

The long-running Alive After Five series at the Knoxville Museum of Art starts its winter session this weekend with Oak Ridge swing combo the Atomic Horns on Friday, Jan. 7. The series continues with the Knoxville R&B group the Accidentals (Jan. 14); bluesman Wallace Coleman (Jan. 21); Relentless Blues (Jan. 28); the Jaystorm Project (Feb. 11); Milele Roots (Feb. 18); Jenna Jefferson and Her Cool Friends (Feb. 25); Phillipe LeJeune (March 11); and Paula Michelle (March 18). All shows start at 6 p.m. Admission is $9, or $5 for museum members and college students.

Down the road in Maryville, the Shed at Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson is kicking off the Shed Sessions, a series of intimate indoor acoustic shows with big-name singer/songwriters, with Fred Eaglesmith on Saturday, Jan. 22. He’ll be followed by Ray Wylie and Lucas Hubbard on Saturday, Feb. 12, and James McMurtry on Saturday, March 19. All shows start at 8:30 p.m. Individual tickets are $20 for general admission and $30 for guaranteed seating. Passes to all three shows are $60-$75.
