NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ There is a free concert by the 129th Army Band in McEwen on Saturday.

The 129th Army Band is part of the Tennessee National Guard and the concert begins at 2 p.m. in the McEwen High School gymnasium. The theme will be Irish music.

The 129th Army Band traces its lineage back to the earliest units of the Tennessee Militia that protected the early colonial settlements and routed the British at the Battle of Kings Mountain on Oct. 7, 1780.

From playing at two World's Fairs to marching in a Presidential Inaugural Parade, the 129th Army Band has been called on to perform countless times across the globe.
