Big Ears hosts OneBeat In Knoxville October 7-9

Big Ears is thrilled to be hosting OneBeat, a lively and fascinating cross-cultural collaboration that brings together 25 extraordinary musicians from 17 countries. OneBeat will be in Knoxville from Oct 7 until Oct 9 – collaborating with students and musicians in the community, offering workshops, surprising us with pop-up performances…and then presenting a grand finale at the Bijou Theatre on Wednesday, Oct 9, at 7pm. That show is free to the public – although a donation of $10 is suggested to help cover expenses. You can make a donation in the link below and assure your spot at the Bijou. If you can’t afford the donation, no worries…you will still be admitted to the Bijou on a first come, first serve basis…capacity permitting. This will be extraordinary…don’t miss it!
