The Aly Taylor Band will take the stage on Oct. 6.
Based in Greeneville, the band is developing a strong following throughout the region.
“Clark Beasley taught me how to play my six-string back in 2001,” said Taylor, “and Kimberly Perry (of The Band Perry) taught me how to perform.”
Taylor has spent time on the road traveling with the acclaimed Band Perry, which also calls Greene County home.
Taylor’s band mates are drummer Jeremy Shelnutt and guitarist Brandon Rohr.
On Sunday, Winter & Company dancers will perform at 1 p.m., followed by the new local country/blues band Step Cousins.
