Mark Kelly Hall

Mark Kelly Hall will deliver a holiday-infused blend of Americana originals and favorites (and a parody song or two) at the Casual Pint in Hixson on Friday, Nov. 24. The music will start at 8:30 p.m. Admission is free.

Review for Mark Kelly Hall: 
Mark Kelly Hall has played an impressive variety of venues, including the Riverbend Festival in Chattanooga, the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, a kindergarten in Minsk, a college in Honolulu, and a church in Cape Town…but not in the same week.

Hailing from the Chattanooga area and now based in Nashville, Hall addresses topics such as love, faith and the 70's. His songs reflect the spiritual heritage of the Bible-belt South, combined with a lifelong fascination with American pop culture, and seasoned by his experiences in places far away from his native Tennessee. His style recalls James Taylor and Jim Croce, and his presentation is flavored with congeniality, personal insight, and a touch of country blues.

Roy Exum: Who Is This ‘New Voice’?

It’s easy for me to say that I either know, or know about, almost every person running in November for the state legislature. Yet when I describe Lemon Williams as the most exciting of the bunch, that’s because he's the only guy I had never heard of when he picked up his qualifying papers. He just turned out the best political aspirant I have had a conversation with in the last ... (click for more)
