The Briars And Dovetail Trio Play At Charles And Myrtle's Saturday

Tuesday, August 14, 2018

The Briars and Dovetail Trio will be at Charles and Myrtle's Coffehouse Saturday at 8 p.m. The coffeehouse is inside Christ Unity Church at 105 McBrien Road.  There is a $10 suggested donation at the door.

Review for the Briars:

The Briars are a Chattanooga based Americana duo featuring Jerris Schmidt and Robert Lovett, each sharing lead and harmony vocal duties, and each on guitar and percussion. The two also write, both separately and collaboratively, and the results are sure to please anyone who appreciates modern, melodic songs with acoustic textures rooted in traditional American music. The duo is off to a roaring start. Their first recorded single, “Never Heard a Bird All Spring”, has garnered attention on YouTube and Facebook, and has been a favorite in live settings.

Review for Dovetail:

Dovetail is a collaboration between Emma DuBose (fiddle), Jade Watts (bass/accordion) and Fritsl Butler (guitar) who, over the past year, have begun to join together the different styles and influences that each brings to the trio. Though Emma, Fritsl, and Jade come from distinctly different musical backgrounds, they love the challenge of blending their many musical experiences into one distinct sound. Dovetail’s repertoire includes songs by well-known artists such as GIllian Welch and John Prine; however the band also finds joy in recreating their favorite tunes by lesser-known songwriters.

Arming Teachers With Guns Will Be Too Dangerous - And Response (4)

Arming teachers with guns in the classroom, as Bill Lee proposes, would be the single most dangerous thing to happen to students in Tennessee history.
