We can’t wait to expand our horizons and enlarge our palette at Big Ears as we try to make Knoxville the place to be in March.”

They completely embody the vision and inspiration that Big Ears aspires to celebrate. Their restless creative spirit has transcended all boundaries and produced a remarkable and rich body of work, and their involvement in Big Ears will be revelatory and transformative.”
