Dip your toe in The Diamond Stream

Acclaimed songwriter and East Tennessee native Ed Snodderly and his band visit Northeast State July 12 for a free performance at 7 p.m. in the performing arts center on College’s main campus, 2425 Highway 75, adjacent to Tri-Cities Regional Airport.

Snodderly’s performance is part of the College’s “Hot Nights, Cool Music” summer concert series. The concert is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

With an armful of memorable songs – many recorded by some of today’s most respected artists – Snodderly draws his audience into a musical narrative that at once reveals a strong sense of place and a graceful momentum. Raised by a musical family, he incorporated the regional influences of his home and those from his travels to create a sound all his own.  The Country Music Hall of Fame recognized the lasting quality of Snodderly’s songs and placed “The Diamond Stream” in the Hall of Honor.

Snodderly received national attention with The Brother Boys, a duo featuring his original songs, instrumental virtuosity, and lead vocals. As evidence of the growing admiration for his work, renowned musicians such as Sam Bush, Missy Raines, Jerry Douglas and John Cowan have recorded Snodderly’s songs.

Snodderly also remains dedicated to running the Down Home, a world-famous listening room in downtown Johnson City that he co-founded.  It remains one of the region’s most esteemed music venues, known for its superior acoustics and artists.  For more information, contact 423.279.7669 or jpkelly@NortheastState.edu.
