The Hunter Museum’s Bands on the Bluff finale melds Southern music performed by local favorites, including Laura Walker & the Traveling Tennesseans, Rick Rushing, and Caney Village. The evening’s concert will feature separate and joint performances by the musicians for a celebration of the blues and bluegrass traditions. In addition to a cash bar, guests 21 and older can enjoy Maker’s Mark tastings courtesy of TJ Brown of Empire Distributors.
Bands on the Bluff will be Thursday, Oct. 5, at 6 p.m.
Museum guests will also have an opportunity to see the Hunter’s permanent collection through the eyes of STEM School of Chattanooga students. The students will share digital interpretations of Hunter collection works they created through a museum outreach partnership.
