Jay Clark at Market Street Friday April 26

Submitted by WhitesCreek on December 1, 2012 - 3:44pm.

Folks, Jay is a Market Street favorite and will pack the house so email me to reserve your seat: stevescarb@aol.com . $10 at the door.

We are BYOB. All we serve is great music. You are welcome and encouraged to bring your own beverage and food. We are right next door to Market Street Bistro. They love our music and lots of us eat there or get take out. The food is better than good and they have a great beer selection.

Jay Clark is an Americana troubadour with a voice as strong and beautiful as the songs he sings.

He works his heart out for you, has you rolling in the floor laughing one minute, and trying to swallow that lump in your throat the next. He recently played the Bijou in Knoxville with Jim Lauderdale, Buddy Miller and a bunch of other folks we love celebrating the 15 years of WDVX. We hear rumors of a new CD in the works. Jay started the Music at Market Street venue rolling with our very first concert and has become a friend beyond the music with a shared passion for all things good and natural. This includes not only Planet Earth but also beer.

I could go on but there's no need. Come out Friday April 26 and hear one of the best singer songwriter story tellers around. If you're not totally convinced already go here: Link... or just watch the video.

The first 70 people with $10 get in.

Here's a picture of Jay the last time he played for us...

The social hour starts at 6, Music starts at 7, Go home happy at 9:30

We're family friendly, don't serve food or beverage but you're welcome and encouraged to bring your own. Most folks do. See you there.

ABOUT OUR MUSIC SERIES

Music at Market Street combines our serious affection for singer songwriters, live performance of original music, and socializing with our friends and families. We started it up in the Spring of 2012 on a whim. The idea was to have a family friendly atmosphere where we could chat and visit, share food and adult beverages if we so choose, and listen to some of the best music in Tennessee. So far it's working. We meet new people every week and folks are now driving out from Knoxville and other far flung places to experience their favorite artists in a small room with great acoustics. The only complaint we ever hear is "Why didn't you tell me about this sooner?"

The people who play for us are very good. They write and record songs and are excellent musicians. We tend to be heavy on Americana genre but we recently had R&B virtuoso Jason Eskridge, so good music is good music. Most of our artists are suggested by the artists who have played at Market Street, on the theory that musicians know music. So far everyone has been better than good. We also pester artists we like after hearing them on stage at one venue or another and we try to get people you would have to go to the Bijou, Jammin' at Hippie Jack's music festival, or someplace like that to hear. They bring their CD's and other stuff for purchase. We pay artists all we can and, after expenses, donate any extra to charities we like. We take no money ourselves.
