Lyrics on the Lawn 07.05.18

The JayStorm Project Rocks the House

Fronted by Jaystorm – a Tennessee-native and rising favorite Southern bluesy, funk, hip-hop son – his latest musical incarnation as “The Jaystorm Project” The Jaystorm Project serves up a backing band and a booty-shakin’ style that accentuates his strong, but yet smooth delivery of slick witty lyrics and bluesy funk sound that is part Motown, part old school hip-hop, with an edge of rock which leaves you with total musical genius.

FREE Outdoor Movie December 1st

Muppet Christmas Carol — holiday movie for 2017

The movie "Muppet Christmas Carol" provided by First Presbyterian Church will be shown one time only beginning at 7:15PM Friday night, December 1, 2017. This feature film will be projected on the wall of the former Dixie Cleaners building on East Church Street in the heart of Historic Downtown Greeneville, Tennessee.

Families Encouraged to Attend

This free family friendly film brings Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie and the entire cast of the Muppet universe together to re-tell Charles Dicken's immortal classic "A Christmas Carol". This was the first time the Muppets appeared on screen since Jim Henson's death in 1990. Michael Caine gives a magnificent performance as Ebenezer Scrooge in a world full of Muppet comedy and almost scary performances from the "Ghosts of Christmas past, present, and yet to come"

Gather up your lawn chairs and a couple blankets or even your sofa (yes there have been sofas) and plan to spend a small part of your holiday season doing something a little different by attending an outdoor movie. Refreshments will be available as a fund raiser for youth missions at First Presbyterian Church.

First Presbyterian Church is the proud sponsor of this year's movie that is in support of Christmas in Downtown — A Holiday Celebration. The event is coordinated by Main Street: Greeneville. For more details visit

Ras Alan Headlines Lyrics on the Lawn July 13 Concert

Ras Alan- 25 Years of Appalachian Reggae

Join Appalachian Reggae innovator, songwriter and performer Ras Alan as he chronicles the 25 year history of his original recorded music, Thursday, July 13, 2017, at the historic Dickson-Williams House, 108 N. Irish St. Greeneville, Tennessee, as part of Main Street Greeneville's Lyrics On the Lawn series. The opening act is at 7pm. Ras Alan performs from 8pm-9pm.

The 2017 Ras Alan- 25 Years of Appalachian Reggae shows feature singer-songwriter performances of reggabilly hits from his 5 previous full length albums, as well as new songs from the Love the Way You Love recording sessions. Ras Alan will also debut his new line of hand built Childres Guitars during these anniversary shows.

Ras Alan will perform original songs from his albums Native, Stone Inna Hurricane, Letter From Appalachia, Folklife- Live at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival and Organic. In addition to the title track "Love The Way You Love", the new material includes love songs "River", "Ital Skillet" and "Time is Right", the Appalachian dancehall one-drop-two-step shuffler "Swingaround" and cultural dreadneck mashup "Mountain Top One Drop". This show is presented in Tennessee, Virginia, North and South Carolina, Kentucky, Alabama and Georgia by Red Pepper Records and Childres Guitars.

As a young man, Ras Alan left his guitar shop and coffee house in the mountains of North Carolina and moved to Nashville, TN, to learn more about the guitars, mandolins and other stringed instruments he had played, repaired and tinkered with for years. He apprenticed with master luthiers that would later run the Fender and Guild guitar custom shops, and spent many hours hanging around the repair shops of George Gruhn and Randy Wood. Ras Alan has decades of experience designing, engineering and building artisan wooden furniture and interiors, craftsman solar homes and award-winning historic building restorations, as well as years of composing, recording and performing his original songs all over the United States, Central America and the Caribbean. He uses useful woodworking techniques of the past and applies the best modern musical instrument innovations. His Childres guitars are each hand made in his shop in the forests of southern Appalachia, and each ringing note carries a lifetime full of experience, music and love. Check and click the “Guitars” tab at the top of the page to see a slideshow of his building process. The “MoonShine Polish” hand rubbed finish lets the guitar breathe... no plastics or sprayed finishes are used on these instruments. Don’t panic. Organic!

Ras Alan’s original songs chart the reggabilly journey of a rural mountain guitar player... from an apple barn country dub party, to a two night run in summertime Las Vegas; from the dance floor at the iconic Carter Fold in Hiltons, Virginia, to the dirt stage under the trees at the Rough House in Jamaica; from crewing on the hand-built Gdansk, Poland registered 31’ sailboat Bagheera off the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, to singing songs about dreadnecks at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington DC. Ras Alan told his stories in the amphitheater of the Blue Ridge Music Center in fabled Galax, Virginia, discussed ital (vital, healthy) food with Jamaican reggae legend Bunny Wailer in the North Carolina foothills and drummed with Nigerian Babatunde Olatunje by the fire. Ras Alan was featured on Country Music Television’s Small Town Secrets along with Wayne Henderson and Jim Lauderdale, showcasing Bristol TN/VA, the “Birthplace of Country Music”, and the various branches of those musical roots. He picked informally with American musical icons Doc Watson and Jethro Burns, and sang on the porch of The Highlander Center, an Appalachian catalyst for grassroots organizing and movement building for Rosa Parks, Pete Seeger and Martin Luther King. He played music and shared a tea ceremony with Africa’s “Father of the Blues”, Malian musician Ali Farke Toure, and was a featured keynote speaker at the Appalachian Research Symposium and Arts Showcase at the University of Kentucky.

“We invited Ras Alan because his work challenges and invites us to think about Appalachia in a global context” said Ann Kingsolver, director of the UK Appalachian Center.
What do people say about his music?

"Ras Alan has created a style of his own. His fusion of driving Reggae basslines and Appalachian guitar riffs transcend both genres. Besides the catchy melodies you'll find yourself humming, his lyrics are straight from the heart, deep and thoughtful. In a nutshell, a masterful artist. If you think the CDs are great, you should see him live." "True to the Roots reggae with the folk flavor." "Great to listen to when you're in a chill mood, or want to get in one." "A splendid effort in a beautiful fusion of styles." "Addicting.” "An absolute perfect blend of country and reggae.”

"Great music...socially conscious...entertaining. I've seen Ras Alan perform many times... this collection is outstanding.”

Bring your family, friends and neighbors, nod your head and thump your foot to Ras Alan- 25 Years of Appalachian Reggae, Thursday, July 13, 2017 during Main Street Greeneville's Lyrics On The Lawn series. Looking forward!

The Color 7 and Loose Change Bring the House Down

The weather may have taken the event inside to the beautiful Capitol Theatre for the final concert of the 2016 season but it certainly did not dampen the talent of the bands nor the spirit of the crowd. A little more than 300 people throughout the evening listened to the opening act, local band, The Color 7 and headliner Loose Change who closed out the session with Rocky Top bringing the crowd to their feet. Our thanks go to Sound Studio Live, Road Show Mobile Stages, John Brown and the Capitol Theatre for pitching in to get us moved and set-up for a great evening of music. Thanks too to our food vendors Top Dog Hot Dogs and Creamy Cup for going with the flow. We appreciate everyone for their support.

Lyrics on the Lawn July 14 2016

The sun was out as were the people then the rain came and everyone scattered. They only went to their cars to wait it out. Once the sky cleared he concert went on with a small delay. Our thanks to Living Testament for their wonderful music and to Michael Jacobs who drove in from Murfreesboro to share his original songs with us.

Lyrics on the Lawn July 7, 2016

The third season for Main Street Greeneville's summer concert series Lyrics on the Lawn started on Thursday July 7 in historic downtown Greeneville. With a break in the weather the outdoor concerts were able to go on as scheduled. Steve Brown opened this year's series to the delight of his hometown fans. My New Favorites from Johnson City, TN were a hit with the crowd of approximately 250 — 300. The rains came and cut their set way short. The fans hung in there but lightening ruled. Kudos to the band they tried to make the most of it by singing an on the spot original to the volunteers under the tents close to the stage and teasing the audience with "It Ain't Gonna Rain No More". If only that had been true.

Join us each Thursday evening in July on the lawn of the Dickson-Williams Mansion in the heart of historic downtown Greeneville, TN. Music starts at 7:00 pm.
