Random Weekend Post: WDVX Blue Plate Special

Posted in Blue Plate Special, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Jay Clark, Mike Farris on November 7, 2009 by AmericanaPulse

Here are a few videos of performances at the WDVX Blue Plate Special. This is a live concert series that takes place every day at noon in down town Knoxville. Every day, people gather downtown to socialize, have lunch, and watch some live music. Did I mention that the shows are free to attend?

We’re in the middle of our Fall Fund Drive at WDVX. We are a listener supported radio station, and we rely heavily on listener donations to stay on the air. By making your tax deductible donation to WDVX you support programs like the Blue Plate Special and 24-7-365 programming of bluegrass, classic country, blues, folk, alt-country, and Americana music. You also help make sure that I have a job.

Sorry for the sales pitch… please enjoy some music from Mike Farris, The Carolina Chocolate Drops, and local favorite Jay Clark.

Jay’s performance took place on Halloween last year if you’re wondering. He doesn’t always dress like Elvis. He’s also joined onstage by a couple of other Knoxville favorites… Cruz Contreras of the Black Lillies on the Mandolin and Wade Hill on the banjo.
