The Square Room, Knoxville, TN
Join us as we welcome back Emi Sunshine & The Rain playing BOTH sets.
The show is all-ages, general admission, fully seated. Bar service will be available.
We are excited to welcome Emi Sunshine, a 10-year-old Madisonville, TN prodigy who has captured the nation’s attention as a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist and named the “‘rising star” by The National Traditional Country Music Association back to The Square Room. The Tennessean describes her as “an old soul,” noting, “Onstage, this soul’s presence is commanding and her singing voice authentic and folksy.” Similar to artists like Dolly Parton, Alison Krauss or members of the Carter Family, and steeped in Appalachian music, she is a true vocal stylist, one who instinctively knows how to interpret the nuances of a song with her impressive range.
Whether she’s performing on the Today show, the Grand Ole Opry or taking the stage at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, she is fearless, confident and firm in her musical direction. As she says, she sings “old-time music,” but it’s her own unique blend of roots music that is equal parts Americana, bluegrass, gospel, and country, with a little bit of blues thrown in for good measure. You can check out her last show here at https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=37&v=RL5JUIsv0DA
Come enjoy dinner before the show at our award-winning restaurant, Cafe 4.
