When:  Saturday, March 17th, 9:00am
Where: UT Arboretum Auditorium / 901 S. Illinois Ave. Oak Ridge 

Before the celebrations begin, come and enjoy some fresh air and exercise on this St. Patrick’s Day hike. The weather is starting to get warmer and this is a great time to spend outdoors. Learn about the UT Arboretum’s trails on this short trail hike (1 to 1.5 hours). Don’t worry if you don’t have a shillelagh (Irish walking stick) as it is an easy hike. This hike will be held outdoors and will be led by a volunteer familiar with the Arboretum and the trail system. Wear clothes appropriate to the weather and boots or good shoes for outdoor walking. This is a free program offered by the University of Tennessee Arboretum Society.

Watch and Listen: The Ragbirds at The Open Chord

When: Friday, March 16th, 8pm-10:30pm
Where: The Open Chord / 8502 Kingston Pike, Knoxville

For years, "home" was a place The Ragbirds rarely visited. The band's music — a genre-bending hybrid of indie-pop melodies, global rhythms and songwriting styles influenced from all over the world — was as broad as their audience, which stretched from the group's hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan, to the shores of Osaka, Japan (where they scored a Number One pop hot with the song "Book of Matches"). Show by show, in venues ranging from rock clubs and performing arts centers to festivals encompassing everything from bluegrass to electronica, The Ragbirds developed a well-deserved reputation as one of the most dynamic, high-spirited live bands in roots music.
