By Nicholas Walker

An instrumental jazz and bluegrass concert will be held at Pellissippi’s Hardin Valley campus Thursday, March 24, from 7 to 9 p.m.

The ensemble will be performed in the Clayton Performing Arts Center. The building is located on 10915 Hardin Valley Road.

The first 45 minutes will be performed by The Hardin Valley Thunder, which is led by Pellissippi’s professor of music Larry Vincent. The second half of the performance will be devoted to jazz and led by music teacher Tom Johnson.

Vincent, who has taught at Pellissippi for 20 years, began Hardin Valley Thunder in 2009. The group plays predominately contemporary bluegrass.

The jazz band will perform several forms of the genre, such as Latin groove and hard bop.
