McLemore concerts to feature bluegrass, Cuban swing, cool jazz

The success of the Songwriter’s Series at McLemore has inspired the Lookout Mountain resort to schedule a smaller series of eclectic performances dubbed “Experimental Batch.”

The series will feature performances by Dan Tyminski, the Sunrise Cuban Jazz Quartet and the Charlton Singleton Jazz Quartet.

Tyminski will take the stage July 29. The Grammy-award winning artist has played guitar and mandolin for Alison Krauss and Union Station since 1994.

The International Bluegrass Music Association and The Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America have both named Tyminski Male Vocalist of the Year.

Tyminski’s voice is best known in the performance of “I’m a Man of Constant Sorrow” in the George Clooney film, “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?”

On Sept. 2, the Sunrise Cuban Jazz Quartet will perform music reminiscent of the Buena Vista Social Club in Havana. Lorenzo Molina, lead trumpeter for The Mavericks, formed the group earlier this year.

“Experimental Batch” will conclude with the Charlton Singleton Jazz Quartet on Sept. 30. The 2019 Grammy Award winner for Best Regional Roots Music Album has collaborated with Bobby McFerrin, Jimmy Heath, Slide Hampton, Houston Person, Darius Rucker, Fred Wesley and Cyrus Chestnut.
