Nightfall Features Folk/Rock And The Braves World Series Trophy This Friday

Nightfall continues its 15-week run of free amazing outdoor concerts at Miller Plaza this Friday, June 3 with a headline show by singer/songwriter Teddy Thompson and his band, with Ryan Oyer as opener. Celebrating its 35th season, Nightfall continues every Friday through September 2.

Headlining at 8pm is British-born Teddy Thompson, son of folk music icons Richard and Linda Thompson (Richard Thompson performed at Nightfall in 1998), who recorded a series of wildly acclaimed folk rock records in the ’70s and ’80s. Teddy has built a successful career that revealed the influences of his upbringing while also establishing a sound and an outlook of his own.

Marrying impassioned lyrics about the joys and challenges of relationships with music that borrows from folk, rhythm & blues, pop, indie rock, and country, topped off by his clear, incisive tenor voice. His performance at Nightfall will be with a four-piece band.

Opening the show at 7pm is local singer/songwriter Ryan Oyer, who was raised on the sounds of the 60’s British Invasion and 90’s Britpop. A prolific writer, he has released five albums and three EP’s in just over a decade. Just last year he released “Rise & Shine” and it’s considered his most honest album to date.

In additional to music on the Miller Plaza stage, other special features at Nightfall this Friday include a display of the Braves World Series trophy, as well as food trucks and local artisan street vendors and the Chattanooga Football Club’s inflatable soccer field in Miller Park.
