CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Travel back in time to the age of the troubadours as the local music group Red River Breeze presents “Merrie Market Music” with Celtic flair 7 p.m. July 22 at the Roxy Regional Theatre.
Red River Breeze will be performing traditional folk tunes from Ireland, Scotland and England, as well as other countries. The concert will feature previously unrecorded tunes and new repertoire from the band's upcoming album, slated for an early 2018 release.
