McLemore’s “Experimental Batch” Songwriter Series Comes to Lookout Mountain
The success of McLemore’s Songwriters Series led to a smaller series of eclectic performers for their first âexperimental batchâ. The series will feature performances by Dan Tyminski, the Sunrise Cuban Jazz Quartet and the Charlton Singleton Jazz Quartet.
The series will begin on July 29 with Dan Tyminski to get on stage. Tyminski has been playing guitar and mandolin for Alison Krauss and Union Station since 1994. Winner of 14 Grammy Awards, Tyminski has been named singer of the year by the International Bluegrass Music Association on several occasions and recognized as singer of the year 2004 by the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America. Dan’s voice is well known in the interpretation of “I am a man of constant sorrow” in the movie, Oh my brother where are you with George Clooney.
On September 2, the Sunrise Cuban Jazz Quartet will perform music reminiscent of Havana’s Buena Vista Social Club. Formed earlier this year by Lorenzo Molina, lead trumpeter for the Mavericks, Sunrise is also conducted by Max Abrams, the group’s saxophonist. Composed of Cuban, Argentinian and Puerto Rican sounds, the Sunrise Jazz Quartet will bring its Cuban swing to the mountains.
The lot ends with the Charlton Singleton Jazz Quartet September 30. The 2019 Grammy Award winner for “Best Regional Roots Music Album” has collaborated with some of the most talented musicians of the time, including Bobby McFerrin, Jimmy Heath, Slide Hampton, Houston Person, Darius Rucker, Fred Wesley and Cyrus Chestnut . With performances around the world, it’s no surprise that in 2017, Singleton topped the Billboard, iTunes, and Amazon Contemporary Jazz charts.
The Experimental Bundle is available for $ 100 for the series or $ 40 per single event ticket.
