Celebrating its 10th year, Nashville’s free, all ages, biannual musical showcase series Musician’s Corner is now seven weeks into its spring season at Centennial Park, and continues this weekend, June 21 & 22, with one of the most impressive slate of performers yet, like Seattle indie singer-songwriter Damien Jurado and local lo-fi dream pop staple Kelsey Kopecky on Friday, and breakout Nashville indie artist Soccer Mommy and buzzy electropop up and comer Bantug on Saturday, in addition to Friday’s Lydia Luce and Rhythm Rumble: an interactive drum circle presented by Make Music Nashville, and Saturday’s Idle Bloom, Briston Maroney, Sophia Boro, Dream Wave, Daisha McBride, Jennifer Holm, and Plevyak.
Following the template of seasons past, Friday evenings throughout May and June feature an Acoustic Friday Night lineup from 5-9 p.m., and each Saturday, Musicians Corner hosts 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 has featured over 100 mostly local and regional acts from a wide range of musical backgrounds, and for the spring finale next weekend, 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 had us circling our calendars throughout the spring.
