The College Bluegrass Showcase will be held 1-5 p.m. Saturday, April 29, in the courtyard of Pellissippi State Community College’s Hardin Valley Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road, Knoxville. The show, which is free and open to the public, will feature
- Pellissippi State’s Hardin Valley Thunder

“The East Tennessee region has such a rich tradition of bluegrass,” said Evie Andrus, president of the East Tennessee Bluegrass Association and host of “Taps and Tunes on the Corner” on WDVX. “We at the ETNBA are excited to showcase the next generations of pickers.”
The Showcase will be held on an outdoor stage and folding chairs will be provided, but feel free to bring your own chairs if you wish. Food trucks and a concession stand will be on hand, and the East Tennessee Bluegrass Association has a rain plan in place in case of inclement weather.
