Sherry Cothran



Sherry Cothran is a “rare combination…an artistic/spiritual trifecta, a first rate singer/songwriter, a dynamic performer and a trained theologian.” 
– Brian McLaren, Author, Speaker, Activist
 
Sherry Cothran has crafted a unique voice as songwriter, author, singer and preacher. Her voice has been described from various spheres as deeply poetic with arresting honesty, edgy and fresh, evocative and inviting.  Once a rock star, in the late 90’s she fronted a popular rock band, The Evinrudes, Mercury Records, and shared stages with many popular bands of the day like Goo Goo Dolls, Spin Doctors, Bare Naked Ladies and many others. She has acted in a film, written songs for t.v, movie and radio and these days, she is a critically acclaimed singer/songwriter who is also an ordained, United Methodist minister. 
Sherry has received numerous opportunities to share her unique gifts on multiple platforms, including Artist in Residence at Louisville Presbyterian Seminary, 2015, Festival of Homiletics, multiple churches, seminaries and theaters, Wild Goose Festival and more.
In 2018,Sherry released her first book, “Tending Angels: Stories From the Frontlines of Heaven and Earth,” a collection of essays from her time as senior pastor of an urban church in Music City in which she encountered Nashville’s hidden population of homeless, refugees, immigrants and the poor. She also released a companion single, “Tending Angels” and worked with indie filmmaker, Trace Facelli on a music video that seeks to show the real reasons people spiral into homelessness, shattering the common stereotype. The music video has premiered at film festivals all over the U.S. and will premier at Grecanica Film Fest in Italy in May.
Sherry’s performances are not to be missed, she combines songs and stories rooted in Bible, ancient wisdom traditions, theology and myth. Through the common pathway of wisdom, story and song, Sherry seeks to break down barriers between people of difference, put a sacred face on homelessness, and create pathways of peace we can all walk on together, inviting everyone to imagine the walls that divide us turning into bridges that unite us.  Check out stories on Sherry in USA TodayUMC.org,interpretermagazine.org. Sherry’s sermons and writing have been featured in Good Preacher, Abingdon Women, Alive Now, Ministry Matters and other blogs and publications. www.sherrycothran.com

Deeper Roots, by Peggy Douglas



We will be debuting a preview of Deeper Roots and possibly welcoming a surprise musician Thursday. 

Deeper Roots is the new play inspired by the life of Emma Bell Miles and the history of Walden's Ridge that will run the first two weekends in April 2019 during the Signal Mountain Centennial celebration. Deeper Roots was written by playwright Peggy Douglas and will be directed by Trish Wileman Ross. The event is produced by the Mountain Arts Community Center.

Deeper Roots is a series of dynamic monologues set to traditional Appalachian music. The play strives to find the levity in bittersweet and sometimes tragic family experiences in early 20th-century Appalachia, as well as the richness of its natural world and surrounding culture, allowing us to celebrate the past rather than wear it like a bit and bridle.

River City Sessions is all about contemporary southern culture, reclaimed and unchained. Here's who you will see...

Stringers Ridge 


On a cold New Year’s Eve in 2017, three musicians met at John C. Campbell Folk School; they became friends, started jamming together at Slick’s, and created a new trio, Stringer’s Ridge, a
band likely to go down in Chattanooga history if for nothing else, as the first to take advantage of that name. New Chattanooga residents Tom and Fran Morley make up two-thirds of Stringer’s Ridge, a band that crosses musical and geographic boundaries with music that focuses on Celtic and Old Time but could veer off into other eclectic genres at a moment’s notice.
Fiddler/Violinist Tom Morley has played professionally most all his life in many styles of music.Classically trained, he’s been a concert violinist, toured Europe with New Orleans jazz bands, dabbled in Cajun, and has a Gold Album representing his Nashville years on stage and in the studio with Country/New Traditionalist singer John Anderson. His passion for Irish Traditional Music over the past two decades led to the formation of bands that played across the country and inspired him to write a book on the subject. His wife, Fran Morley, picked up the bodhrán, the Irish drum, around the same time and has played alongside him in concerts and pub sessions in Ireland, England, Scotland, Holland, Canada, and throughout the Southeast US. A long time Chattanooga resident and teacher at GPS, guitarist Bryant Haynes calls himself a Jack of all trades and master of none, although he does have a master’s degree in physics should that ever be called for in a band. He plays a wide variety of acoustic instruments, sings, tells stories when the spirit moves him, and can pound a rhythm into the floor with his amazing Podorythmie talents—otherwise known as French Canadian foot tapping.

Tom Brown and Robert Thatcher 

In November of 2017, Robert Thatcher and Tom Brown embarked on a musical adventure with the intention of combining their creative juices to enter songwriting competitions. So far they have received honorable mention in the 2017 Musicians United Against The Pebble Mine Songwriting Contest, honorable mention in the Woody Guthrie Songwriting Contest, and third place in the American Songwriter Contest.
 
A Chattanooga native, Robert Thatcher is strongly influenced by the southern Appalachian folk and bluegrass music of this area. His songs are about the natural beauty and people of this region, and often touch on environmental issues that endanger a more traditional way of life. He has twice received an honorable mention in the international competition held in honor of Woody Guthrie. His songwriting efforts reflect a strong desire to have both a good message and a strong melody line in his compositions. Robert’s songs have appeared on Bluegrass Bands Helping Vol. 2 and the Scenic City Sampler, a compilation of Chattanooga area artists. He and his wife Alice have been members of the Orchard Band trio for the past 13 years, playing frequently throughout the Chattanooga area.
 
Over the years Tom Brown has worn many hats. His songwriting efforts have have resulted in  several of his songs being recorded by regional and national bluegrass bands and he has been selected four times for the IBMA World of Bluegrass Songwriter Showcase. Tom co-wrote the musical comedy Fat Shirley’s: A Trailer Park Opera, first staged in 2005 and most recently at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2015. He also wrote the music for Twisted Roots, a collaborative effort with author Peggy Douglas. He often can be seen performing with the bluegrass band Spatial Effects and on rare occasion with the legendary Gobbler’s Knob String Band. He currently serves as the director of the WoodSongs Dalton Concert Series and he produced the Scenic City Sampler Cd, a compilation of Chattanooga area Americana musicians and songwriters.
 
Brown currently serves as the executive director of the DEO Clinic, a nonprofit clinic that provides medical care to uninsured low income residents of Whitfield and Murray Counties in northwest Georgia.

Audience members will be exposed to new, local bands cultivating Chattanooga’s music market and vote for their favorites via text message to determine the winners of each night.

The band lineups for the competition nights are as follows: 

Friday, March 9th will include Tim Hughes Quartet, Over Easy, Backwater Still, Lenox Hills, IronChief, and the Silver Tongued Devilz.

Last year, 20,000 text votes were submitted from more than 1000 fans who wanted to know who is Chattanooga’s most promising local act.  Past winners have used this experience to widen their fan base and further their musical careers. The competition offers a great chance for these artists to meet, network and help develop Chattanooga’s music scene.   Past winners include: Ryan Oyer Band, Function, Amber Fults and the Ambivalent Lovers, Strung Like A Horse, Nick Lutsko, Monday Night Social & WTM Blues Band.

The River City Sessions

Hang out with us this Thursday, March 8th, as we host The River City Sessions. Doors open at 7 P.M. and the show will begin at 7:30. Admission is only $5.00 for some literary enlightenment. Come out for songs, poems, and prose strung with stories and jokes for your delight! 

River City Sessions is all about contemporary southern culture, reclaimed and unchained. We are especially excited to be in the presence of a Georgia Poet of the Year nominee along with some super talented singer/songwriters. Here's who you will see...

Clifford Brooks -Poet


Brooks was born in Athens, Georgia. His first poetry collection, The Draw of
Broken Eyes&; Whirling Metaphysics, nominated for the 2013 Georgia Author of the
Year Award in Poetry, will be re-issued by Kudzu Leaf Press in 2018. His full-length
collection Athena Departs: Gospel of a Man Apart as well as his limited-edition poetry
chapbook Exiles of Eden were published in 2017, also by Kudzu Leaf Press. Clifford is
the founder of The Southern Collective Experience, a cooperative of writers, musicians
and visual artists, which publishes the journal The Blue Mountain Review and hosts the
radio show Dante’s Old South. He currently lives in northwest Georgia and is pursuing
an MFA in Creative Writing at Reinhardt University.

 

Krystye Dalton – Singer Songwriter


A rootsy rock soul explosion…
Originally from Phil Campbell, Alabama, Krystye grew up listening to the famous sultry sounds of Muscle Shoals recording artist such as Aretha Franklin, Etta James, The Rolling Stones and The Wicked Wilson Pickett. With her energetic stage antics and prolific song writing she mesmerizes audiences of all ages with her sweat and soul.

 

Webb Barringer – Singer Songwriter


"Barringer’s lyrical skills are masterful and his songs frequently delve into the realm of the broken and damaged people of the world (aren’t we all, to some degree?) yet there remains an element of hope. The broken and damaged people of the world can heal, given time and inclination. That’s just how life is, and at the end of the day, it’s a pretty fine message." -Marc Michael (The Pulse Chattanooga's Weekly Alternative)
