Nashville recording artist “Dr. Paul” Constantine will be bringing his eclectic mix of country and folk to The Camp House in Chattanooga at 7:30pm, Wednesday, August 20. This special solo performance will showcase his unique take on traditional favorites, as well as popular original songs from his recent studio albums.

“I’m really excited about getting a chance to play The Camp House,” Dr. Paul said. “I can’t think of a better place to introduce myself to the Chattanooga music-loving public. This is going to be a good one!”

Dr. Paul’s latest studio album, “I’m Comin’ Home Carolina”, was produced by legendary Nashville producer Doc Holiday, and features six songs written by songwriting partner Doug Matern.

Other original music by songwriters Scott James Stambaugh and Larry Mitchell, as well as stellar and unique takes on favorites by Gordon Lightfoot, Guy Clark, John Prine, Marty Robbins, and others make for a fun, inspirational, and moving performance.

“I’ve really been lucky to be able to work with some of the very best, and always try to bring something new to the well-known standards I play,” Dr. Paul said. “Each song is its own little adventure, and sometimes I’m as surprised as anyone by where they take us.”

Dr. Paul cut his teeth as a part of the 1960-70’s music scene, playing mostly bass in a variety of popular rock, folk, and even funk bands. Occasional solo performances were a sideline back then, but after a long hiatus spent raising a family and nurturing a successful business he got the performing bug again and has been tearing it up throughout the Southeast ever since.

“That was fun back in the day, but intimate solo performances are really where my heart’s at,” Dr. Paul said. “I love the opportunity to connect with an audience, build a relationship and take them on a trip. For those few hours we are all a part of each others lives, a source of joy and enjoyment that goes both ways, and I know of nothing that’s more satisfying than that.”

The Camp House is located at 1427 Williams St, Chattanooga, and tickets are $5 for this unique performance. For more information, call The Camp House at 423-702-8081 or visit Dr. Paul’s website at www.paulcon.net.

Due to a series of pressing events I didn’t get a chance to make my September walk through the garden until yesterday.

So before the temperatures drop, allow me to catch up: AN ORCHID ... (click for more)
