The folks who produced the Gig City Roots concert this past summer at Coolidge Park plan to produce a monthly concert called Scenic City Roots.
The concerts also will be streamed on the Internet and broadcast on local TV.
Beginning March 7 at Track 29, the series will be produced by Heng Dai Media, which also produces a similar show called “Music City Roots” from a barn in Nashville, and the Bluegrass Underground series, which is filmed inside Cumberland Caverns in McMinnville, Tenn.
The lineup for the first concert will be The Steel Drivers, St. Paul and the Broken Bones, JOHNNYSWIM and the WTM Blues Band.
