July 1: Cereus Bright + Shakespeare on the Radio by Tennessee Stage Company
Cereus Bright is Tyler Anthony and Evan Ford, two young folk musicians from Knoxville. Their songs showcase strong, passionate harmonies singing stories of real life—hope and heartbreak, adventure and stillness. Tyler plays guitar, piano, and sings, Evan sings backup while playing lead guitar and mandolin. They frequently play with bassist Matt Nelson and drummer Luke Bowers. Comparisons with bands such as the Avett Brothers, Fleet Foxes, and the Head and the Heart are inevitable, and are major compliments.
Tennessee Stage Company will preview its Shakespeare on the Square performances of Twelfth Night and Richard III.
