Border Bash to host Andrew Combs and Paleface Friday night in Historic Downtown Bristol!

May 12, 2014
Set in Historic Downtown Bristol, Border Bash will host the second concert on Friday, May 16, 2014, once again in the 700 block of State Street. The evening’s events will start with children’s activities, crafters, and concessions at 6:00PM. Live music begins at 7:00PM with Andrew Combs followed up by Paleface around 8:30PM. As always, Border Bash is free to the public!

“Our first Border Bash event had tremendous turnout,” stated Christina Blevins, Executive Director of Believe in Bristol. “We are excited to keep up the momentum with more great music, family fun, and of course, the festival atmosphere everyone enjoys,” she added.

Andrew Combs
It's not every day you stumble across a truly great songwriter who can also play his or her own songs in a way that is musically satisfying. That's why Andrew Combs has been turning heads and catching ears. In the vein of the type of country musicians that are all but extinct, this young Nashville-based singer-songwriter writes songs that are rough around the edges but touching enough to reach your soft spot.

Paleface

Paleface is a prolific and influential cult hero and indie folk icon – with girlfriend and drummer Monica (Mo) Samalot, he forms a high energy and charismatic duo. Paleface was schooled musically by friend Daniel Johnston and was soon discovered by the legendary Danny Fields (The Stooges, The Ramones, MC5) at a NYC open mic night. He has since released over a dozen records, including two major label releases, and he's collaborated and performed on three albums by The Avett Brothers. Paleface has influenced and inspired a wide range of musical acts, from electropopsters YACHT to Grammy Award recipients Kimya Dawson (The Moldy Peaches / Juno) and Beck, who calls Paleface “a big influence on my early work” in Annie Leibovitz’s American Music.

Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion wins NETTA Pinnacle Awards "Best of Show" — amongst others!

May 12, 2014
Birthplace of Country Music's Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion festival took home a number of Pinnacle Awards, including "Best of Show," from Northeast Tennessee Tourism Association (NETTA) at their annual awards luncheon last Wednesday. This latest recognition comes after the festival received the Cities of Bristol Mayors' Award of Distinction in April and several Southeast Festival & Events Association Kaleidoscope Awards, including "Best Festival," in February.

The Pinnacle awards were sponsored by Bristol Motor Speedway and held at the Carnegie Hotel in Johnson City, Tennessee.

"Receiving the Pinnacle for Best of Show from NETTA is especially meaningful to our organization," said Birthplace of Country Music Executive Director Leah Ross. "To know that our event is held in such high esteem among our regional tourism industry is very humbling. It has taken a village to make Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion a success; this award speaks to the hard work and support of many over the past fourteen years."

In addition to "Best in Show" honors, Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion recieved the Pinnacle for Special Events and Public Relations. Jack King, owner of LC King Manufacturing Co. in Historic Downtown Bristol, accepted the Public Relations Pinnacle for #BristolRhythm: Live & Breathing, The LC King Centennial Sessions. Nick Corrigan, Justin Glanville, and Destiny Smith, of Live & Breathing, were also present.

Live & Breathing, based in Knoxville, Tenn., is a video production company known for capturing intimate performances by musicians in unique, personal settings. The company set up private shoots in the second story sewing room of the 100-year-old LC King factory during Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion 2013 weekend. Live & Breathing recorded over 50 performances by artists including IBMA award-winning Della Mae, Willie Watson, JD McPherson, Pokey LaFarge, and St. Paul & the Broken Bones. As of this date, the Live & Breathing: LC King Centennial Sessions videos have netted more than 478,000 page views on YouTube alone.

"It is an honor to be recognized for our work, but it is a privilege to work with such talented people and with such a great event," said Nick Corrigan, Live & Breathing Production Manager. "None of what we do would be possible without everyone who helped us along the way. Everyone's hospitality and the collaboration of Pointer Brand, The Birthplace of Country Music and Live And Breathing is what made the LC King Centennial Sessions a success. It's great that the community sees and recognizes that."

Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion also recieved Merit Awards for Print and Multi-Media Advertising & Promotions for the Reunion's Festival Guide (designer Cindy Collier) and Mobile Application (designer CrowdTorch by Cvent).

Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion 2014 will be held September 19-21. Weekend Passes to the annual music festival remain at $50 through June 30.

It's National Small Business Week — so shop local!

May 13, 2014
It's National Small Business Week this week — May 12 — 16 — the perfect time to show your local small businesses that you support them, this week and every week! Remember that for every $100 spent in a locally-owned independent business, $68 comes back to the community in payroll, taxes, and other expenditures. If you spend the same amount in a national chain, only $43 comes back to the local community. So get out there and shop local — you can be the hero who helps to save your local economy!

And what better way to celebrate your local economy and small businesses then to come out tomorrow night for Sunset Shopping Downtown (details below)?

Bristol Public Library Requests Proposals for Promotional Materials

May 12, 2014
The Bristol Public Library seeks proposals for the development of promotional materials to be used in support of a fundraising campaign for a remodeling project benefiting the Library’s Teen Program and Adult Learning Lab (A.L.L.).

The remodeling will re-purpose under-utilized areas in the Main Library so as to enable the Teen Program and the A.L.L. to better meet the demand for their services. The Library Foundation is paying for the construction phase of the project (est. $350,000). The Library Board will lead a public fundraising campaign for the furnishings and technology, for which the cost is estimated to be $110,000. The services described in this RFP relate to the public fundraising campaign.

The campaign will involve an appeal to the general population of Bristol and will offer many opportunities for giving at all levels. The package being sought here will be the primary vehicle for describing the project, its funding needs, and the various opportunities for giving/pledging. It will include components by which the Library will put out the message generally and by which individual fundraising volunteers will inform potential, individual donors of giving opportunities.

The proposal should address the following scope of services:
* Graphic design for all package media
* Copywriting
* Video production
* Design of social media/Internet campaign

The proposal should:
* State how the scope of services should be accomplished
* Describe the process for completing the work
* Include the qualifications of those actually engaged in providing the services
* Show projects of a similar nature carried out by the respondent

Please note that the cost of services is not included in this request.

Proposals will be reviewed by Library staff according to the following criteria:
* Completeness of proposal
* Perceived effectiveness of proposal
* Quality of design team
* Relevant experience

The Library will choose two or more proposals to be further discussed in competitive negotiation for professional services as per VA Code 2.2-4302.2, which says in part “For professional services, the public body shall engage in individual discussions with two or more offerors deemed fully qualified, responsible and suitable on the basis of initial responses and with emphasis on professional competence, to provide the required services. Repetitive informal interviews shall be permissible. The offerors shall be encouraged to elaborate on their qualifications and performance data or staff expertise pertinent to the proposed project, as well as alternative concepts. ...The Request for Proposal shall not, however, request that offerors furnish estimates of man-hours or cost for services. At the discussion stage, the public body may discuss nonbinding estimates of total project costs, including, but not limited to, life-cycle costing, and where appropriate, nonbinding estimates of price for services.”

Responses should be sent in .pdf format no later than May 30, 2014, to Executive Director Jud Barry at judbarry@bristol-library.org.

For additional information or to arrange a preliminary site visit, please contact Jud Barry at that email address or at (276) 645-8782.

Student Artworks Bring Variety and Vibrant Color to Historic Downtown Bristol

May 13, 2014
The Arts & Entertainment District is hosting the 3rd Annual Student Art Gallery in Downtown Bristol. In an effort to “Cultivate Bristol’s Creativity,” the district has invited the local schools to help us beautify our community by providing art to decorate the front windows of the former Hayes Furniture Building on State Street.

“We have some very talented artists in our community, and the Student Art Gallery downtown is a wonderful venue for the students to show off their talents – and it gives art teachers an incentive to offer to their students,” says Barbara Smith, board member of the Arts & Entertainment Committee and Bristol Ballet. “It is imperative we support the arts and arts education for our young people. Our world needs people who can think creatively and solve problems, not just regurgitate facts. Art Education and opportunities in the arts do just that."

Each school or group that participates has a month-long period to display their students’ art in the space. The seventh gallery of art went up on May 2, showcasing art from students in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades at Van Pelt, Stonewall Jackson, Highland View, and Washington Lee Elementary Schools in Bristol, Virginia. The art is taken from a variety of projects done throughout the school year, reflecting studies of specific artists, cultures, and techniques, as well as the students' own creative ideas.

Artwork by the students from Van Pelt, Stonewall Jackson, Highland View, and Washington Lee will be on display at the Hayes Furniture Building until June 2, 2014.

For more information, please contact René Rodgers at Believe in Bristol on 276-644-9700, rrodgers@believeinbristol.org, or visit the website at www.believeinbristol.org.

Downtown Bristol's Tricities Stand Up Paddleboard store sponsors Warrior Challenge — Growing Sport Draws From Families to Weekend Warriors!

May 12, 2014
Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is the hottest watersport craze sweeping the nation, and people in the Tricities are ready for the action! As the sport has grown in participants, the first competitive paddleboard regional race is coming to our area Memorial Day weekend with the Warrior Challenge at Warrior's Path State Park on Saturday, May 24.

SUPing began in Hawaii not very long ago and spread quickly to the West Coast of the US. The first SUP race was held in Tahoe City, CA, in 2007 and has become a frequent sight on both coasts in the last few years. It was only a matter of time before the fun activity found its way to the beautiful TVA lakes of our region.

This race was created by a new organization called Southern Stoke Paddle Series (SSPS), a ten-race series that stretches from Tennessee to Alabama to Georgia to North Carolina. Two of the ten races will be in our area: Warrior Challenge on May 24 in Kingsport on Patrick Henry Lake and the Appalachian Challenge on August 23 in Butler on Watauga Lake. It is sponsored locally by Tricities Stand Up Paddleboard store located in Bristol, TN.

Created to encourage the SUP sport on inland lakes, SSPS offers athletes the chance to compete in paddleboard races closer to home in the southeast. Up until now, all the competitions centered on coastal races meaning longer distances to travel and having to contend with waves, tides and other ocean hazards. SSPS races feature a long and a short course with points awarded to contenders. Prizes and awards will be given out through the organization and sponsors. The races are open to anyone wishing to test their skill and endurance against other SUP enthusiasts, even if you are a beginner.

"These races are very beginner friendly, as most people in our region are new to the sport," explains Jack Nelson, manager of the Tricities Stand Up Paddleboard shop (TriSUP for short), the only dedicated SUP store in the area. Nelson, a competitive racer himself, was involved in the early stages of developing the Series during last October's annual Chattajack Race in Chattanooga. The idea was to create some fun events centered around places that have SUP shops to help spur the sport on in the Southeast.

With paddleboarding growing in popularity across the country, many people have discovered the activity is great for fitness, fun and even yoga. The Outdoor Foundation's 2013 report cited "stand up paddling as the most popular outdoor activity among first-time participants" and the official US Coast Guard blog "Compass" says SUPing "is the fastest growing water sport in the world." Tricities residents can give it a try during the free demonstrations at the race event.

TriSUP was opened last year and is located next to the Paramount theater in downtown Bristol.
As the weather warms, the store's experienced instructors take to the surrounding lakes with trailers of SUPs to offer demonstrations, rentals and lessons. As a dedicated SUP store, TriSUP has the widest selection of boards and accessories as well as knowledgeable staff.

"Getting the right fit is very important," Nelson notes. "Not only is your weight and height a factor in choosing a board, knowing what your goals are is important too. There are SUPs for cruising, racing and even whitewater paddling. We take all this into account to make sure you start off with the right equipment perfect for you."

For more information about the races or SUPs in general, visit www.Trisup.net. TriSUP is located at 514 State Street, Bristol, TN, 423-652-0220 and is open Monday — Saturday 10 — 6.
