The River City Sessions - an evening of spoken word and music

Join us for an evening of spoken word & traditional music celebrating the culture & traditions of the south. Tennessee Wild Meetup member & storyteller Michael Gray will be joined by actress Kate Forbes to share stories and tales to amuse and enthrall. Some of you may have met Michael on one of our outings.  He is a sweetheart of a guy, and is giving Tennessee Wild space to setup an exhibit at this event.

Musical guests Red Shoes & Rosin and Michael and the Holy Rollers will tickle your ears with their tunes. I have only heard great things about them!

The show, much like Prairie Home Companion, will be taped and broadcast on 88.1 WUTC two weeks later on Sunday night.  Join Michael and Tennessee Wild to see it live! And take action while you're there by writing postcards to Congress in support of protecting the Cherokee National Forest.

Michael is extending the student rate - $5 - to Tennessee Wild Meetup members. Pay at the door.  Hope to see y'all there!

    Hello everyone, we are trying to get a count for reserved seating. If you aren't going would you remove the yes rsvp? Or, if you have decided to go and take someone change the number. It will hep us insure everyone is taken care of!

    This kills me, but I have been trying to nurse Mama back to health so that I could bring her - or at least go myself... but at this point, she is in bed and I am "on call" as she needs me (24 hr. nurse). I may have to miss tomorrow and I was so looking forward to it! Hopefully tomorrow will be better where I can go. Won't know until it gets here.

      Mike said a friend brought a 7, 8, 12 & 13 year old to the last session, and she said that it was kid friendly.

    Hello all, Thank you for your support. Two things: To get the “special admission” tell them at the door you are a member of the TN Wild group. Kid friendly… yes, as far as content, one of my stories will deal with some adult behavior but in no means will be off color or foul. Depending on the age, they may get some of the humor or not. We developed and promoted the show however as kid friendly and there will possibly be other children there is the possibility that one of the other performers will tell a fairy tale. We have had those sprinkled here and there.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
