Whaley Concert Benefits Clinic

Singer-songwriter Jimbo Whaley’s popular annual concert will benefit Mountain Hope for a second time.

The 15th annual Jimbo Whaley and Friends Show is set for Saturday, March 23 at Country Tonite Theater in Pigeon Forge. Every year, the concert has benefited local non-profits. Last year, Mountain Hope received funding from the concert proceeds, and Jimbo has generously made the same offer this year.

Jimbo grew up in Pigeon Forge, surrounded by music, which naturally led to his career as a singer and songwriter. His talent has attracted a following of devoted fans. Twenty years ago he co-founded Pine Mountain Railroad, a bluegrass band that was twice nominated for the
Emerging Artist of the Year award from the International Bluegrass Music Association. He now performs with the band Greenbrier.

As well as composing his most memorable hit, “The Kings of Orebank,” Jimbo wrote four songs
featured in “Bell Witch: The Movie.” He was the featured performer at the movie’s premiere in
the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

The audience at the March 23 concert can expect more than bluegrass. Jimbo’s and Greenbrier’s
high-energy performance includes original works and pop songs from several eras. The “and
Friends” part of the playbill will feature a wide variety of other popular local musical acts.
Don’t miss this evening of dynamic entertainment. Tickets are available at jimbowhaley.com.
