Rockin' on a Sunday Afternoon

Knoxville has an abundance of local musical talent of all kinds. Name your favorite kind of music - jazz, blues, rock, country, bluegrass, folk, gospel, classical - you'll probably find someone performing it around town. Today the sun was out, the weather was perfect for an outdoor concert, and I had the great fortune of finding the Rockin' Womyn's Music Festival taking the stage on Market Square. This free festival of female bands is sponsored by the Lambda Student Union of the University of Tennessee. Donations helped raise money for the Knoxville Family Justice Center, which helps victims of domestic abuse.
