Celebrating its 10th year, Nashville’s free, all ages, biannual musical showcase series Musician’s Corner is now three weeks into its spring season at Centennial Park, and continues this weekend, May 24 & 25, with another impressive slate of performers like Americana rocker Will Hoge and singer-songwriter Shelly Colvin on Friday, and folky alt rock genre bender Aaron Lee Tasjan and dreamy folk pop singer Erin Rae on Saturday, in addition to Friday’s Emily Earle, Karina Daza, and Kristen Dunn, and Saturday’s AJ & The Jiggawatts, SONTALK, EG Vines, Larysa Jaye, Bre Kennedy, Alicia Michilli, and Mary Moore.
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. 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, Nikki Lane, Jim Lauderdale, Daisha McBride, Dream Wave, Joshua Hedley, Pokey LaFarge, Teddy and the Rough Riders, Andrew Leahey, Kelsey Kopecky, and many, many more.
In addition to this season’s regularly scheduled performances, Musician’s Corner will also welcome back the Nashville Symphony for a special show on Thursday, June 6, and will partner with the American Artisan Festival for a 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.
