Food & Fun Sept 9, 5pm at  Greeneville Parks & Rec's Dogwood Park! Featuring Darrell Scott, Appalachian Reggae with Ras Alan, and Steve Winslow

The event will feature lots of  yummy local food and an evening of FREE fun for the whole family!

Dance and sing "Organic" with Ras Alan, hum along with Steve, and meet Darrell Scott...

With tobacco growing and coal mining in his family tree, Darrell Scott writes and sings!

The Dixie Chicks say, "He is one of the great writers of our time. He brings a complete package through perfectly crafted lyrics, groove and melody. When you listen to his songs you can tell he's lived them."
