Exploring the musical and storytelling history of the Civil War
The Camp House presents a very special evening of entertainment featuring tales and music reminiscent of Civil War times to help usher in the 150th anniversary celebration at Chickamauga.
Girl Haggard's Lori Quillen, Folk School of Chattanooga instructor Matt Evans, along with Robert Cyphers and Michael Gray from the trio And the Devil Makes Four will showcase music inspired by the period. They will be telling a story, “The Tale of Jeannie Bell,” about a woman who walked from Asheville to Knoxville to visit her husband who was being held there as a prisoner of war.
Author J.Ed Marston will be reading his essay written in response to a question from his son, "Dad, did we win the Civil War?" Author Thad Oliver will also be featured.
A "super group," led by Billie in the Woods and including Fiddlin Faye, Charles Gaston, Eric Tittsworth and Chris Lecroy, promise to deliver true Americana Folk designed to get you up and out of your seats.
