A Family Mountain Celebration and Down-Home Jamboree

Fall season is upon us and what better way to celebrate than at LampLight Theatre and Downtown Kingsport Association''s "Fall for Downtown Folk Fest." Come and usher in the fall season as we celebrate the mountain heritage of east Tennessee and southwest Virginia. On Saturday, September 24, revisit the old days and enjoy local traditions on Broad Street in Historic downtown Kingsport.

Arts and Crafts booths will be set up by local artisans, crafters and churches. Candles, jewelry, wreaths, and seasonal handmade crafts will be for sale. There are still open spaces for individuals or groups wishing to sell their wares.

All day long, good “vittles” will be on hand. Vendors will be selling home-cooked food including pinto beans, cornbread, corn on the cob, and fried apple pies. You can even take a turn at stirring homemade apple butter for our Apple Butter Stir-off. Make sure you bring a good appetite with you.

Entertainment for all ages will be going on all day as well. Live bluegrass and folk music will be performed by local musicians on our Broad Street stage. To take a break from the heat, enjoy creative arts performances inside LampLight Theatre by Pocket Full of Seeds throughout the day. For animal lovers, there will be a “Mountain Critters” petting zoo and Pony Rides.

A special area for children, "Kids Explosion", will be set up with Inflatables, a Kids Activity tent, Pony Rides, a Magician, Face Painting, Puppets, and Games. Adults may try their hand at Cornhole and Horseshoes.

"Fall for Downtown Folk Fest” runs from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Saturday, September 24. The admission for the all-day festival is FREE.

Both Friday and Saturday evening at 7:00 PM, there will be a performance in the theatre with the Down-Home Jamboree: “Old Time Gospel Sing” featuring Tattered Saints and Friends . This performance is done in true “Gaither Homecoming” sing-a-long fashion with old and new gospel favorites, southern gospel and shape note singing. Suggested donation for evening performance is $10 Adults, $5 Students, and FREE for children under 6. Tickets will also be available throughout the day at Folk Fest or can be purchased at the door.

Subject: Peabo Bryson

Peabo Bryson has established a career as one of the premier male vocalists in contemporary music of the last quarter century. Possessing a beautifully rich, almost operatic voice, this two-time Grammy® Award winner has survived and prospered despite the passage of time and changes in popular musical trends.

With twenty albums to his credit, Peabo Bryson has enjoyed an unprecedented, across-the-board level of international success. Bryson has the distinction of being the first artist in music history to have separate records topping four different charts.

With several gold records, and a multitude of chart-topping R&B and pop hits, such as “Feel the Fire,” “I’m So Into You,” “Tonight I Celebrate My Love,” and “If Ever You’re In My Arms Again,” Bryson truly penetrated the hearts of soul fans everywhere. Hits followed with his first R&B #1 single “Show & Tell,” (a remake of the late Al Wilson and the smash “Can You Stop the Rain”).

But it was two songs for Disney animated films that earned Peabo his two Grammys®. The first was 1991’s “Beauty and the Beast” with international pop singer Celine Dion and the very next year, “A Whole New World (Aladdin’s Theme)” from Aladdin which he performed with Regina Belle.

Subject: Three Dog Night

Legendary music icon, Three Dog Night, claims some of the most astonishing statistics in popular music history. From 1969 through 1974, no other group achieved more top 10 hits, moved more records or sold more concert tickets than Three Dog Night.

The group’s eclectic taste, combined with its ability to recognize and record hits in a unique, distinctive and appealing style, resulted in Three Dog Night dominating the charts for years. Three Dog Night had 21 consecutive Top 40 hits, including three #1 singles, 11 Top 10’s, 18 straight Top 20’s, seven million-selling singles and 12 straight RIAA Certified Gold LP’s. The hits appeared on best selling charts in all genres (pop, rock and country). Their records continue to sell around the world, reaching beyond the border of the U.S. into Japan, Canada, Holland, England, Germany, Spain and elsewhere. Tens of millions of Three Dog Night records have been sold through the years.

Their career has been highlighted by songs like “Mama Told Me (Not To Come),” “Joy to the World,” “Black and White,” and “Shambala.” Now marking more than 40 years on the road, Three Dog Night continues to grow its fan base and develop new ways of doing business. Three Dog Night maintains an aggressive, year-round touring schedule of concerts at a wide variety of venues.
