Join Us in the Beer Garden on July 4th!
This coming July 4th, John Fee will be playing a special concert for the guests of Apple Valley Mountain Village in the Beer Garden of the Apple Valley Cafe from 12:30pm – 3:30pm.
Raised in Harlan, Kentucky, John Fee is the son of a coal miner and a part-time preacher. Acquiring his first guitar at Pick ‘N Grin in Knoxville, Tennessee, John took his newly aquired instrument to church with him where he wated and learned from the pickers in the service. Eventually, Kohn started to play gigs around his home town and was a fixture for 12 years at the town’s annual Poke Sallet Festival. Inspired by the country artists that he grew up watching on Ralph Emery’s “Nashville Now” program on TNN, he gravitated toward the traditional country sound of Geroge Jones and Merle Haggard.
In 1998, John moved to east Tennessee, settling in Blount County, eventually bringing his talents to the band Wildcard. After performing with Wildcard, John went on to form John Fee and the Dirt Road Drifters, a three-piece country rock band that played throughout the greater Knoxville area. Today, his band John Fee and the Honky Tonk Playboys perform all around the Tennessee area, bringing their engaging performances to fans in a number of local venues.
So come on out this Fourth of July and John Fee at the Apple Valley Mountain Village. His performance is sure to be memorable!
