City Winery Celebrates Labor Day Sunday Sept. 4

With Two Award-Winning Blues Guitarists in the Lineup

NASHVILLE, TN –  Nashville’s upscale City Winery is  hosting award-winning blues guitarists Tom Whisenhunt and Stacy Mitchhart Sunday, Sept. 4 among a lineup of five artists and bands. Both Whisenhunt and Mitchhart have won Nashville’s Blues Guitarist of the Year Award more than once,  as well other significant honors since 2003.

City Winery’s lineup and pricing structure are as follows:
Free on the Patio from 4 pm till 7 pm
Tom Whisenhunt 4 pm
Allen – Lamun Band 5 pm
Dean Alexander 6 pm
MainStage tickets $18 at 7 pm
Between The Lines 7 pm

Stacy Mitchhart Band 8 pm

A native of Memphis, Whisenhunt’s retro soul sound has been part of Nashville’s blues scene since 2002 playing with Debbie Ritter and The 440 Blues. Winning numerous awards in support of the 2003 CD “Bluesday Afternoon,” co-written with Ritter, Whisenhunt was awarded Blues Guitarist of the Year in 2003 and 2004 by Music City Blues Society.  Ritter and The 440 Blues represented Nashville in the International Blues Competition three times and made it to the finals in 2005.

In 2010 Whisenhunt headed up the four-piece outfit, Bad Moon Blues, as lead vocalist and guitarist with Vic Mastrianni on drums., Peter Burger on sax, and Richard Sanders on bass.  Whisenhunt is also a frequent player with Next of Kin, a band of brothers, cousins, and friends who’ve played together for 41 years.

Noted backup singer for Merle Haggard and David Frizzell, Donna Faye says, “Hearing Tom live is all about the tone. His licks are executed with understated passion — a very tasteful player.”

Whisenhunt’s set list includes among other titles,  Keb Mo’s “Low Down Dirty and Bad,” Tony Joe White’s “Roosevelt and Ira Lee,” Willie Dixon’s “Built For Comfort,” and his hybrid version of  “Georgia On My Mind” using influence from Jerry Reed and Ray Charles.
