In old-time

Since retiring from his day job in 1982, 82-year-old East Tennessee fiddler Ralph Blizard has reigned as a hero of Appalachian dance music with his breathtaking virtuosity, welcoming personality and contagious love of the form. Ralph Blizard & the New Southern Ramblers deliver driving old-time music with youthful energy, traditional vocals and timeless power made for dancing. PineCone brings this Tennessee Arts Ambassador to Garner's Lake Benson Park for a free concert at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23. For information, call 772-8765. --Art Menius
