Chattanooga’s Live Music Scene – Songbirds Second Saturdays Concert Series

Friday, May 19, 2017 - by Bob Payne
Songbirds Guitar Museum not only hosts the world’s finest guitars, but they also offer “Second Saturdays” free music concert series on Station Street, behind the Choo-Choo near the Terminal Brewhouse.

The first event on May 13th featured Bluegrass music, but each event is a bit different. Additional events are June 10th, July 8th, August 12th, and September 9th.

The schedule is as follows:

June 10 – Nathan Farrow Band, Davey Smith Band, Amber Carrington Band
July 11 – The Communicators, Paul Childers Band
August 12 – The Power Players, The Beaters
September 9 – Harleys & Guitars with Rubik’s Groove

Look for food and drink specials from the area restaurants and businesses located in the Choo-Choo complex and nearby, also.
The dates of the series coincidentally match the second Saturday of each month. What are the odds?
