We would like to celebrate International Women's Day by inviting you to attend next week's screening of the documentary film Dolores. With intimate and unprecedented access, Peter Bratt's Dolores tells the story of Dolores Huerta, among the most important, yet least-known, activists in American history. Co-founder of the first farmworkers union with Cesar Chavez, she tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the 20th century. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Unzr9kiFScQ

VIP PACKAGE: $100
-Includes ticket, a CD, a signed laminate, and a photo of Emi.
Born Emilie Sunshine Hamilton, Emi was raised in a musical family in Madisonville, Tennessee. She started performing at age four, wrote her first song at age five, recording two albums by the time she turned seven. A “mind-bogglingly” talented singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, EmiSunshine is “one of the 10 new country artists you need to know” according to Rolling Stone Magazine. This... teenage musical Phenom writes “intense Appalachian folk tunes in the Carter Family tradition and sings them with wisdom and ferocity.” Influenced by country music trendsetters Bessie Smith, June Carter, Loretta Lynn and Hank Williams and The Louvin Brothers, EmiSunshine is a throwback to an earlier era of country music. Her charismatic stage presence, honest lyrics and gutsy voice evoke comparisons to “a modern-day Janis Joplin.” She will be appearing on NBC's Litte Big Shots this spring.

With legends like George Jones, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard all passed on, country music purists often echo the question Jones himself asked: “Who’s going to fill their shoes?” The answer, in part, is Marty Stuart. While he’s too gracious to admit it himself, the Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and musician is living, breathing country-music history. He’s played alongside the masters, from Johnny Cash to Doc Watson to Lester Flatt, who discovered him, before going solo. He built his fanbase not only on the strength of his voice, but on his hotshot guitar playing too.
Now Marty Stuart And His Fabulous Superlatives are coming back to the Paramount ready for a good time. Their new album, Way Out West, his 18th studio album, pays tribute to Marty’s life-long fascination with California. The album is a cinematic tour-de-force, an exhilarating musical journey through the California desert that solidifies Stuart as a truly visionary artist.

For the Love of Country
Music has always played an important part in creating cultural identity. The Paramount Chamber Players presents four composers, each important to the development of a sense of national identity. Each composer also created or expanded a musical style that became identified with his home country. Represented are France, Spain, and Germany in the music of Gaubert, Turina, and Schumann. In addition, The Paramount Chambe...r Players in conjunction with The Bristol Music Club welcomes the tenth Paramount Chamber Players Award winner, saxophonist Jenny Hesoun performing Cantelienne and Danse by Algerian composer, Marc Eychenne. Players appearing in the concert: Luis Casal, viola; Craig W. Combs, piano; George Figueroa, violin; Cherylonda Fitzgerald, cello; Rebecca Paluzzi, flute; and, Thomas Maternik-Piret, cello.
Cantilenne and Danse - Marc Eychenne
Piano Trio no. 3 in G minor, op. 110 by Robert Schumann
Trio in D, op. 12, no. 1 by Tommasi Giordani
Piano Quartet in A Minor, op. 67 by Joaquin Turina
Confederate Railroad first rolled onto the national country music scene in the early 90s with its unique style and sound.
Headed by founder and frontman Danny Shirley, the former backup band for both David Allan Coe and Johnny Paycheck got their big break by signing with Atlantic Records. The first single from their debut album ("Confederate Railroad") was "She Took It Like A Man". It went to No. 26, a preview of what was to come. "The next two singles, "Jesus and Mama" and "...Queen of Memphis" went to the top of the charts. Three more huge hits followed, "Trashy Women", "When You Leave That Way You Can Never Go Back", and "She Never Cried". "Trashy" would lead to a Grammy nomination and become their signature song. That album with six hits and nearly three million sales brought Confederate the Academy of Country Music's Best New Group Award in 1993 as well as numerous nominations from the Country Music Association and the British Country Music Foundation.
The second album, "Notorious", produced one of the group's most popular songs "Daddy Never Was the Cadillac Kind" which became a No. One video as well. "Elvis and Andy" and "Summer in Dixie" would further establish the Railroad as one of the most versatile acts in the business. This album would sell more than one million. Their overal totals are 18 charted hits and five million albums sold.
From rowdy country to raw emotion, a Confederate Railroad concert today covers a wide range of feelings. Young people will be there rocking to "Trashy Women", while their parents and even grandparents will likely be singing along to "Jesus and Mama". The band plays 100 or so dates each year. Whatever the venue, they are right at home…be it a fair, a club, or a biker show. Shirley, the lead singer and vocalist, and his mates, Mark Dufresne on drums, Mo Thaxton on bass and vocals, Rusty Hendrix on lead guitar and Joey Recker on keyboards and vocals are obviously having fun right along with their appreciative audience. At the end of each show, the band stays around until every fan who wants an autograph, or to pose with the group for a picture or just say "hello" is taken care of.
Announcing "For the Love of Country". The Paramount Chamber Players' next concerts are Feb 1-4. We will feature music by composers who were important to the de...velopment of their homeland's national identity. We will also feature the 2017 Paramount Players Award winner, Jenny Hesoun, saxophone. For details on venues, please see www.paramountplayers.com. (Thanks to Patricia Jessee for the lovely caricature!) More information to come later on this Facebook page!
THIS SATURDAY: East Tennessee PBS and Paramount Bristol invite you to a free advanced screening of the second season premier of MASTERPIECE "Victoria" on Saturday, January 13.
