Celebrating its 10th year, Nashville’s free, all ages, biannual musical showcase series Musician’s Corner is now five weeks into its spring season at Centennial Park, and continues this week with a super-sized three-day installment, June 6, 7, & 8, boasting another impressive slate of performers like the esteemed Nashville Symphony and singer-songwriter Paul McDonald on a special bonus Thursday night, old-timey blues and folk revivalist Pokey LaFarge and southern gothic folk singer Amythyst Kiah on Friday, and local outlaw country fave Nikki Lane and indie pop singer Molly Burch on Saturday, in addition to Thursday’s Bea Troxel and Avalon Kali, Friday’s Esther Rose, Samuel Herb, and Daniel Daniel, and Saturday’s Sam Lewis, Veaux, Stacey Randol, Robyn Harris, Michelle Brooke, Paul Vinson, and RJay Green.
Following the template of seasons past, Friday evenings throughout May and June will feature an Acoustic Friday Night lineup from 5-9 p.m., and each Saturday, Musicians Corner will host both Main Stage and Lightning 100 Acoustic Stage performers from 12-6 p.m. This week’s special Thursday night also runs from 5-p p.m., following a similar schedule to Friday (though not specifically billed as “acoustic”). The event is family friendly, all ages, and free, and features food trucks, beer, local vendors, Kidsville activities, and more! Boasting perhaps the most impressive lineup in the festival’s history, the 2019 spring season features over 100 mostly local and regional acts from a wide range of musical backgrounds, including Soccer Mommy, Bantug, Idle Bloom, John Paul White Jim Lauderdale, Daisha McBride, Dream Wave, Andrew Leahey, Kelsey Kopecky, and many, many more in the coming weeks.
In addition to this season’s regularly scheduled performances, and this week’s special Nashville Symphony night, Musician’s Corner will also partner with the American Artisan Festival for another supersized three-day weekend of music June 14-16. And for the spring’s June 21 finale, John Paul White’s Single Lock Records will curate, for an event White also headlines. Needless to say, Musicians Corner remains one of the most vibrant, fun, and frugal ways to experience some of the best artists Music City has to offer, and this year’s lineup definitely has our circling our calendars for the rest of the spring.
