Fifth Season of Pine Ridge Concerts Starts April 2

The Pine Ridge House Concerts series run by Bryan and Wanda Smith at their home in Clinton is becoming an area institution, with more than 30 intimate living-room concerts by national and local folk and country performers since the series started in 2007. The fifth season of the series starts on Saturday, April 2, with Chuck Brodsky, a witty singer/songwriter from North Carolina, and runs through Nov. 4. The lineup, top-notch as ever, includes Jay Clark and Robinella resurrecting the musical partnership that started with the String Beans in the 1990s, Blount County’s first couple of country, Jeff Barbra and Sarah Pirkle, former Knoxville and current Mississippi blues duo Blue Mother Tupelo, Slaid Cleaves, Marshall Chapman, Eric Brace and Peter Cooper, and Kristi Rose and Fats Kaplin.
