Mark Kelly Hall plays at In­man Cof­fee in Cleve­land

Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - MUSIC - STAFF RE­PORT

S i n g e r /s o n g w r i t - er Mark Kelly Hall has sched­uled a Black Fri­day show in Cleve­land, Tenn. He plans “a mix of hol­i­day tunes, orig­i­nals and other songs you al­ready like,” he says

Now based in Nashville, Hall is orig­i­nally from the Chat­tanooga area and a grad­u­ate of Bradley Cen­tral High School. He ad­dresses top­ics such as love, faith and the ’70s in his mu­sic, re­flect­ing the spir­i­tual her­itage of the Bi­ble Belt South, a life­long fas­ci­na­tion with Amer­i­can pop cul­ture and his ex­pe­ri­ences in places far away from his na­tive Ten­nessee.

His style re­calls James Tay­lor and Jim Croce, and his pre­sen­ta­tion is fla­vored with con­ge­nial­ity, per­sonal in­sight and a touch of coun­try blues.

The show, set for 6- 8 p.m. Fri­day, Nov. 25, takes place at In­man Cof­fee, near the theater in Bradley Square Mall, 200 Paul Huff Park­way.

Like its larger pre­de­ces­sor, In­man Street Cof­fee­house, the mall shop is op­er­ated by The Sal­va­tion Army, which Hall cred­its with “a long his­tory of em­ploy­ing the cre­ative arts to reach peo­ple.”

This is a free show, but Hall will do­nate his tips to the or­ga­ni­za­tion.

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Ruthie Forgey or Joel Rogers at The Sal­va­tion Army of­fice, 423-3083467.
