The Best of Jethro Tull performed by Ian Anderson featuring the new album Homo Erraticus

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

Legendary prog-rock pioneer Ian Anderson will be releasing a new studio album Homo Erraticus on April 15 on his own Calliandra Records. The album continues with the story of Anderson's favorite enfant terrible Gerald Bostock, from Thick As A Brick (1972) and Thick As A Brick 2 (2012)

Ian and his band (guitarist Florian Opahle, bassist David Goodier, keyboardist John O'Hara and drummer Scott Hammond) will stop at the Ryman on Wednesday, October 1, as part of this new tour where Homo Erraticus will be performed in its entirety followed by a selection of Tull classics updated with video and theatrics.

Ian Anderson recently won The Prog God Award from Prog Magazine, celebrating the innovators of rock who have inspired generations and carved a way for others to be at their creative best. There is no one who has pushed the boundaries more than Ian Anderson, who to this day remains immersed in his love for the music.

Fronting seminal Prog outfit Jethro Tull and performing simply under his own name, Ian Anderson has performed in more than 54 countries over 45 years; he is widely considered an icon of the genre and is recognized as the protagonist of the flute in rock music.  With over 60 million albums sold in its career, Tull has been characterized by Anderson’s trademark acoustic textures created with ethnic flutes and whistles together with acoustic guitar and the mandolin family of instruments. In many recent shows, Anderson has played with orchestras, string quartets and featured soloists. His eclectic acoustic performances are also a hit with fans of the progressive genre.

King Tuff - All Ages Show

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

King Tuff’s new record is called Black Moon Spell.

 

It was produced and recorded by Bobby Harlow at Studio B in Los Angeles, California, in the hot winter of 2014.

No one involved was prepared to make a record, but an invisible hand pushed them to do it. Perhaps it was God or that special someone we all know and love called The Devil.

God and The Devil actually have very similar interests. They both love electric guitars and they both want you to listen to Black Moon Spell and freak the fuck out.

There were many strange occurrences during the recording session- Dracula landlords, flashes of mysterious light, haunted microphones, songs that mixed themselves, demonic vortexes swirling in coffee cups, etc.

Under the Black Moon Spell you may experience euphoria, demented visions, wet dreams, bouts of backwards laughter, and dazed confusion resulting in primordial dancing.

Fire played a very important role in the making of this album. King Tuff loves fire.

For some reason, no one can really explain how the Black Moon Spell came to be. It just appeared one day and demanded heavy rock music and meatball subs.

J Mascis w/ Kevin Drew

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

t makes perfect sense that I was asked to write a bio for J Mascis. Let's face it, he and I have a long history. It all started the first time I saw him live. It was in New York City. I don't remember when or where, but I think he was walking around. I was probably walking around, too. The second time was also in New York, at a Mexican restaurant in the East Village (the one that takes credit cards now, but didn't used to). Years later I actually met him at the SXSW festival though a friend who works at Sub Pop. I guess that meeting went well, because when that friend from Sub Pop got married, she sat me at the same table as J. Sounds unbelievable? I suggest you look at the picture below. Now keep staring at that picture until August 26th. That's when J's new acoustic album Tied to a Star comes out on Sub Pop Records. It features appearances by Ken Maiuri, Pall Jenkins , Mark Mulcahy, and Chan Marshall. Had I been in the area, I'm sure I would've been asked to play on it, too.

The Music City Medium Cindy Kaza with Special Guest Lisa Williams

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

Cindy Kaza is an evidential medium based out of Nashville, TN. She has been extremely intuitive since very, early childhood but had her first memorable experience with a spirt at age 10. Days after losing an elementary school friend in a fatal car accident, Cindy woke up in the middle of the night to see her friend standing right next to her bed. At the time, she dismissed this experience. She convinced herself it was just a dream. It wasn’t until her early 20′s that she realized she was having psychic and mediumistic experiences all along. During this “awakening” she began searching for answers and reasons for her experiences and became aware of her multifaceted abilities as a psychic medium. Cindy is clairvoyant (clear seeing), clairaudient (clear hearing) and clairsentient (clear feeling) . She works as an evidential medium. Evidential mediumship is a style of mediumship practiced around the world that puts heavy weight on the medium’s ability to bring through extremely specific evidence to the sitter.
This evidence can include, but is certainly not limited to, names, personality traits, physical ailments, favorite past times, and phrases often used by loved ones in spirit. The purpose of this style of mediumship is to diminish skepticism among sitters and to prove that the medium is truly connecting with the client’s loved ones in spirit. Cindy has trained thoroughly through the United States and also at the Arthur Findlay School of Intuitive Sciences in Stansted, England. There is no right or wrong way to grieve the loss of a loved one. Each person experiences the loss of a loved one in his/her own way. Cindy believes in compassionately sharing her gift with others while also opening up others to the gifts they too possess. Everyone is inherently intuitive and able to feel Spirit!

About Special Guest LISA WILLIAMS
Lisa Williams is a world-renowned medium and clairvoyant with an amazing ability to communicate with those who have passed on to the other side.
Born in England, Lisa was discovered by Merv Griffin and introduced to audiences through two seasons of her own hit show, Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead, along with Voices from the Other Side and Lisa Williams Live. All of these shows are now airing around the world. She has also appeared on Anderson Cooper, Oprah, The Ricki Lake Show, Good Morning America, The Today Show, Larry King Live and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
As well as performing in front of large live audiences worldwide, Lisa also offers workshops and courses in mediumship, developing psychic ability, intuition and meditation. She has recently launched the Los Angeles based Lisa Williams International School of Spiritual Development (LWISSD) through which she delivers her classes with her own unique and very hands-on method of teaching. Through the school, Lisa offers access to her personally trained and certified mediums and psychics who are part of the LWISSD Directory.
Lisa hosts her own weekly radio show on blogtalkradio.com, and writes regularly about her life and spiritual teachings on her website lisawilliams.com, where she interacts with the public as well as her site members. She is an accomplished author of books on mediumship and spirituality, including Survival of the Soul and Life Among the Dead, as well as her new book on mediumship for beginners, I Speak to Dead People, Can You?, available from May 2014.

Boyhood

Skrillex

Presented by War Memorial Auditorium at War Memorial Auditorium

Skrillex will perform on September 30 with Tokimonsta, Tchami, and Alesia.
Skrillex will perform on October 1 with Kaytrandada, Branchez, and David Heartbreak.

In a cluttered home studio in downtown Los Angeles’ Arts District, mere blocks from where he wrote “Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites”, the song that sold millions of copies and helped instigate one of the largest shifts in modern American music in recent memory, the galvanizing totem of a youth movement daps at a midi controller, ceaselessly cuing the same snare sound over and over and over and over, for literally hours. Literally. Hours.

Skrillex has a lot of thank yous. At around the one-minute mark of his first Grammy acceptance speech in 2012, iPhone in hand, scrolling interminably down a list, it became clear that Skrillex doesn’t feel isolated from his peers. It’s always been a defining trait of his character, this aptitude at building things with others. It’s since gone on to characterize, color, and define his career, too. Whether with his label, OWSLA, his numerous media projects, the NEST online community or the building in downtown LA he’s currently converting into a state-of-the art creative space, Skrillex knows there’s power in numbers. Skrillex quite simply loves to make things.

Frank

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

A young wannabe musician, Jon, discovers he's bitten off more than he can chew when he joins a band of eccentric pop musicians led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank (Michael Fassbender), who wears a giant fake head, and his terrifying sidekick, Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal). After a rocky start, Jon ingratiates himself with the band members, and they retreat to a cabin in the woods to record an album. As his influence waxes, creative tensions mount, and the band’s entire raison d'être is called into question. The ensemble creates lasting images and sounds for a film that playfully examines the nature of art and artists. FRANK possesses such creative audacity and thought-provoking observations—propelled by a barrage of wit, performance and, of course, song—that you’re bound to emerge feeling as if you have seen and heard something completely original.

Tyler Barham

Presented by Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant - Nashville at Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant (Nashville)

Born in Bozeman and raised in Florence, Montana, Tyler began singing when he was nine. Although he enjoyed singing different styles of music, it didn’t take him long to realize his heart (and eventually his baritone voice) belonged to country music. In his early teens, Tyler competed in various talent competitions in and around Montana winning several high profile competitions. But the majority of his popularity has come by way of YouTube and his covers of popular country songs which have introduced him to a world wide audience.

Greg Friia, Pete Sallis, Scott Reeves & Ariel Orifici

Presented by Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant - Franklin at Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant (Franklin)

Greg Friia, a Maryland native, has been a living in Nashville for over 10 years. He has an impressive list of collaborators including Robbie Nevil, Peter Amato, Greg Bieck, Oliver Leiber, Bill Champlin, George Noreiga, & Felix Cavaliere in addition to his core of up and coming contemporaries.  Greg has had songs recorded by Bonnie Tyler, Richie McDonald, Brady Seals, Kristen McNamara, LoCash Cowboys, David Bradley, Eric Paslay just to name a few and currently writes for Sea The Desert Entertainment. He also tours with pals Pete Sallis & Riley Weston who make up The Nashville Gang.

In 2011 Scott Reeves became a member of an elite group of songwriters when Toby Keith’s “Made In America” hit No. 1 on the Billboard county music chart. Working in collaboration with Keith and fellow songwriter Bobby Pinson, Reeves crafted a lyric line that resonated with the nation. The song garnered number one status on the county charts as well as a Top 40 position on the Billboard Hot 100, along with BMI award honors. For Reeves, songwriting has become a passion, and performing country music has been a joy. Reeves’ roots take him from the backwoods of Delight, Arkansas, to the rolling hills of Tennessee, then out west to the sunshine of LA and back again. For Scott Reeves, “Made in America” is more than a lyric—it’s a lifestyle.

Pete Sallis, originally from Chicago, has been a staff writer for years and has had cuts with Ronnie Dunn, Rodney Atkins, Bucky Covington, Bo Bice, The Roys, Mama’s Blue Dress, and most recently, 2012 American Idol winner, Phillip Phillips. He also won a CCMA Single of the Year by Universal Canadian artist, George Canyon.

Ariel hails from NY and sites Karen Carpenter & Frank Sinatra as two of her musical influences.  She has a long list of collaborators including Vince Melamed, Oliver Leiber &  LA Producer Andrew Lane.  She has performed in and around LA and was also the featured performer for Pepsi for one of their largest corporate events in the country.  Look for her debut release in late 2015.

St. Lucia with Joywave

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Even in the urban wilds of Brooklyn, there may be no one else like Jean-Philip Grobler, aka St. Lucia. Originally from Johannesberg, St. Lucia grew up performing with the Drakensberg Boys Choir School. When the choir wasn't traveling - they toured Japan, Australia, Europe and more - they stayed in an enclave tucked in the South African mountains, learning everything from Bach to minimalist opera.

A young musician could hardly find better training. But musically, St Lucia's heart lay elsewhere, and South Africa was full of other rhythms. "My mom says I used to sing along to Michael Jackson," he says - an ordinary anecdote, until he adds, "when I was an infant." As a young teenager, he started to feel that he'd had his fill of classical, and it felt like an epiphany when he discovered the direct emotionality of pop. Eventually, he left the creative "small pond" of South Africa for England, where he spent three years studying music in Liverpool.

St. Lucia's journey ended - as so many journeys do - in New York City, where he started working on the tracks that would ultimately turn into his self titled debut release on Neon Gold. The atmospheric quality of St. Lucia's electronic pop is powerful, with the musician's global travels and history of secret hideaways effortlessly passed onto the audience through his dreamy, shimmering synths.

Neon Gold will release St Lucia's debut album later this year. Formerly a singles-only label that launched releases Passion Pit, Ellie Goulding, The Naked & Famous and helped launch the careers of countless others.

Foxygen with Dub Thompson

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Foxygen is the bi-coastal songwriting duo of Sam France (vocals, Olympia, Wash., 22 years old) and Jonathan Rado (guitar/keyboards, NYC, 22). They are the raw, de-Wes Andersonization of The Rolling Stones, Kinks, Velvets, Bowie, etc. that a whole mess of young people desperately need. They create a sometimes-impressionistic, sometimes-hyper-real portrait of sounds from specific places and times. They bring the manic, freewheeling qualities of an artist like Ariel Pink to those aforementioned influences to make for one of the most refreshing listens of the year. They are the real deal and total savants. Their albums are love letters to vinyl collections.

The Trip to Italy

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

Michael Winterbottom's largely improvised 2010 film, THE TRIP, took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon—or semi-fictionalized versions thereof—on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this witty and incisive follow-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets' grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Rewhetting our palates from the earlier film, the characters enjoy mouth-watering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batman's vocal register, the artistic merits of "Jagged Little Pill," and, of course, the virtue of sequels. Winterbottom trains his camera to capture the idyllic Italian landscape and the gastronomic treasures being prepared and consumed while keeping the film centered on the crackling chemistry between the two leads. THE TRIP TO ITALY effortlessly melds the brilliant comic interplay between Coogan and Brydon into quieter moments of self-reflection, letting audiences into their insightful ruminations on the nuances of friendship and the juggling of family and career. The result is a biting portrait of modern-day masculinity. (Synopsis from TIFF Cinematheque)

Harp Heaven 2: A Celebration of the Harmonica with Charlie McCoy and more...

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

Our May HARP HEAVEN show was so successful, that we're doing it all again in October! The harmonica has been the backbone of countless genres of music from country to folk to blues and so many others. It can sit to the side and add texture to a song, but it’s not afraid to step up front and be the star of the melody line. We will celebrate the instrument by presenting four of its finest practitioners in an evening of music. Joining us for this incredible night, along with an all-star house band are:

CHARLIE McCOY – 73-year-old Country Music Hall of Fame member Charlie McCoy is a multi-instrumentalist, but is known mainly for his harmonica playing for a who’s who of music royalty. In addition to numerous cuts by Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Ringo Starr and countless others, Charlie has recorded 37 albums of his own and has had 13 singles on the Billboard charts. And he was musical director of the popular television show, Hee Haw for 19 years. It’s truly an honor to have him join us for this great evening.

BUDDY GREENE – The 2014 SPAH Harmonica Player of the Year, Buddy Greene brings a wide variety of southern Americana influences to his music to create a unique musical hybrid of country, bluegrass, folk, gospel and traditional blues. In addition to his solid reputation as a singer-songwriter and guitarist, Buddy has established himself as one of Nashville's finest harmonica stylists. His live concerts are equal parts hymn sing, jam session, church house revival, and journey through his own musical history.

JELLY ROLL JOHNSON – Kirk "Jelly Roll" Johnson's distinctive, soulful style of harmonica has earned him critical acclaim, numerous awards, and a place among Nashville's top session musicians. His unique sound has been heard on over 50 gold and platinum albums by such artists as Trisha Yearwood, Etta James, Alabama, Lonestar, Tim McGraw, Shania Twain as well as three Grammy winning albums by Randy Travis.

TIM GONZALEZ – Tim Gonzalez arrived in Nashville in 1992. His adventurous, rhythmic, soulful, melodic style has earned him gold and platinum status on the national charts with country artists Toby Keith and Ronnie Milsap. He has also performed or recorded with B.B. King, Grammy-winning Los Lonely Boys, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many others in various genres of music.

Twenty years after the release of Nas's groundbreaking debut album 'Illmatic,' NAS: TIME IS ILLMATIC takes us into the heart of his creative process. Returning to his childhood home in Queensbridge, Nas shares stories of his upbringing, his influences — from the music of his jazz musician father Olu Dara to the burgeoning hip-hop scene in New York City — and the obstacles he faced before his major label signing at age 19. Featuring interviews with his 'Illmatic' producers (Large Professor, Pete Rock, Q-Tip, L.E.S., and DJ Premier) and musical peers (including Pharrell Williams and Alicia Keys), NAS: TIME IS ILLMATIC is a thrilling account of Nas's evolution from a young street poet to a visionary MC.

Glen Phillips

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Glen Phillips started his first band, Toad The Wet Sprocket in Santa Barbara at age 15. It was that group's third album -- the jangling, orchestral Fear -- that truly broke the group, garnering heavy radio play with the singles "All I Want" and "Walk on the Ocean." After three years away from the recording studio, Toad returned to the mainstream with Dulcinea, which again found one of its singles, "Fall Down," in heavy radio rotation. After six albums and a substantial string of hits, the group disbanded in 1998. Phillips began touring as a solo act after Toad the Wet Sprocket's demise, and has released five solo records and two EPs, collaborated on two projects (Mutual Admiration Society and Works Progress Administration), released an EP with Plover (with Neilson Hubbard and Garrison Starr) and an album as RemoteTreeChildren (with Portland's John Askew).

In 2006, while supporting the Mr. Lemons album, he also toured North America with a reunited Toad the Wet Sprocket. Toad has toured off and on since that time, and in 2011 played 70 shows and decided to begin writing for a new album, released late in 2012. Glen is currently at home except for a long weekend of shows each month, and is writing songs for Toad as well as future solo releases. He still lives in Santa Barbara with his wife and three daughters.

Wilson Phillips

Presented by Wildhorse Saloon at Wildhorse Saloon

Join us for live music with Wilson Phillips with special guest Brynn Elliot.

The 1990 release of the eponymous Wilson Phillips album heralded the emergence of a bright new pop vocal trio, and one unique in its heritage. Sisters Carnie and Wendy Wilson are the daughters of The Beach Boys' genius Brian Wilson, while Chynna Phillips is the daughter of The Mamas & The Papas’ John and Michelle Phillips. Together the gals produced a harmonic blend that did their parents proud while achieving their own chart-topping success.

2011 was a huge year for Wilson Phillips. They gained a lot of attention and some new fans when they appeared in the blockbuster hit film "Bridesmaids" in which they performed their stellar hit “Hold On.” Chynna Phillips added to her luster as a skilled dancer and endearing competitor on ABC’s "Dancing with the Stars", while Carnie Wilson increased her immense fan base as host of Karaoke USA and ...participant on Celebrity Wife Swap. A very busy year indeed, especially when the three ladies are happily married and have nine children between them – three for Chynna, two daughters and a son; Carnie has two daughters and Wendy has four sons.

This year the momentum continues for the trio with the release of Dedicated, a new Wilson Phillips studio album made up of covers by The Beach Boys and The Mamas and the Papas. This is an album that their fans had been dreaming about since the group's inception. It will be released by their label Sony Masterworks on April 3rd. Additionally this spring, the lifelong friends will star in Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On, a TV Guide Network reality show documenting the group’s adventures in and out of the recording studio, and are planning to tour the U.S. and Canada in support of the new album.

Nashville Flipside's Americana Pie South IV

Presented by Douglas Corner Cafe at Douglas Corner Cafe

Douglas Corner is for songwriters and aspiring artists, what the world famous “Improv” is for comedians. Douglas Corner Cafe began in 1987 when Recording Engineer, Mervin Louque, partnered with businessman, Rick Martin, to create a music venue aimed at showcasing new singers and songwriters in Nashville. It soon grew to become a well known “Home Away From Home” for Nashville’s top songwriters and future music stars. It is a place for writers and performers to come together in an intimate environment with the common goal of hearing and creating great music.

North of Nashville

Presented by The Family Wash at Family Wash

North of Nashville in Nashville: 9 p.m. Friday, October 3 Family Wash, 2038 Greenwood Ave. with Ben Cameron and Stephen Simmons Cover: $5; Information: 615.226.6070 northofnashville.org   Every now and then a musical endeavor starts as a lark, but clicks so well, it takes on a life of its own — one that deserves to be nurtured. That’s what North of Nashville bandmates Jay Basiner and Andrew Martelle discovered when they began duetting in-between gigs with their regular band, a Maine outfit called This Way.

Pursuing their passion for honky-tonk and the Highwaymen, they quickly found themselves outdrawing their regular gigs — and having far more fun. They finally gave in to the muse and made it official with their self-titled debut, an album that revels in the gospel of Willie, Waylon, Kris and Cash, as well as their musical brothers and sisters from across the vast Americana landscape. North of Nashville (April 29, 2014), features 10 tracks filled with Martelle’s fiddle and mandolin and Basiner’s lead vocals, acoustic guitar, harmonica and percussion, and of course, their lively harmonies. Their roots influences, natural chemistry and irresistible appeal are abundantly evident in songs such as “Eyes for Me,” “One Night of Pretending,” “The Working Man” and “Hooked on Me,” but every song courses with passion and heart.

Paul Thorn

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

Paul Thorn took an unexpected detour on the road to recording a follow-up to his most successful release, 2010's Pimps and Preachers. After writing many discs of semi-autobiographical tunes that have drawn comparisons to John Hiatt and John Prine, the critically acclaimed singer/songwriter - hailed as the "Mark Twain of Americana" - decided to do an album of covers. "I wanted to take a break from myself," he reveals, "do something different, and just have fun."

The collection, entitled What The Hell Is Goin' On? (due May 8th on Perpetual Obscurity/Thirty Tigers) finds Thorn putting his own gritty rock stamp on some of his favorite songs. There are some names familiar to Americana fans (Buddy Miller, Ray Wylie Hubbard), some lesser-known (Foy Vance, Wild Bill Emerson) and some surprises. The Buckingham/Nicks tune Don't Let Me Down Again originated on that duo's debut, not during the Fleetwood Mac era, while the Paul Rogers/Free song that Thorn chose to cover is an obscure one, Walk In My Shadow.

Olivia Lane and friends & Phil Barton and Friends

Presented by The Listening Room Cafe at The Listening Room Cafe

Olivia Lane, Seth Ennis, Maddy Newton and Baylor Wilson perform at 6:00pm.  Olivia Lane: the vibrant, bubbly young blonde with the effervescent personality and free-spirit had little trouble making friends and jumping into the Nashville music scene, and soon she was writing songs with writers around town and honing her own unique sound. She signed with industry veteran Dennis Kurtz from Show-Gun Entertainment earlier this year, and is currently working on her debut EP, due out early next year. She’s even written a song or two for the project with her mom, who gives her some pointers from time to time from her own perspective. Inspired by everyone from Tanya Tucker and Eric Clapton to Kacey Musgraves and John Mayer, Olivia’s songs, like her wistful ballad “Indiana,” are introspective little slices of her life and her big, open heart. They’re often fueled by her tremendous sense of fun and spontaneity, and are perfect examples of why she’s such a welcome fresh face and voice on country’s new landscape.

Phil Barton & Friends take the stage at 8:30pm. Join us for a special night with Phil Barton. He will be turning 40 this week so lets celebrate the only way we know how, with a show! Some of the artists who have recorded their songs include, Lee Brice, Kenney Chesney, Dierks Bentey, Sarah Evans and David Nail.

Nathan Angelo w/ Steve Means

Presented by The Rutledge at The Rutledge

Join us for live music with Nathan Angelo and Steve Means.

In the ever-changing landscape of modern pop, Nathan Angelo shines as a refreshing alternative, embracing the classic elements of popular music and celebrating the backbeat of American tradition. As the revival of music in the 60’s and 70’s brought together the heritage of the Great American songbook, the flair of jazz and heartache of the Delta blues, Angelo integrates these forms into his own mu...sic with great ease and delight. Like many Motown and Stax artists, Angelo’s musical craft was cultivated at a young age in the pews and platform of the church. It was there that he first witnessed the power music had to transport people beyond their present experiences.

He performs tonight with Steve Means.

Josh Helms and more

Presented by Margaritaville Nashville at Margaritaville Nashville

Head out to Margaritaville Nashville for live music!

Josh Helms Band will perform from 12:00pm to 4:30pm. Josh Helms has spent years honing the craft of songwriting and discovering what it means to deliver those songs to a live audience. "As far back as I can remember I’ve been singing in church and I would always stick at least one of my original songs in the set list," Josh admits. While in college Josh tried out and was selected to be a finalist on USA Networks Nashville Star 2 years in a row. During these trips to Nashville to sing at both the Wildhorse Saloon and The Stage on Broadway Josh fell in love with Nashville and everything the city had to offer. "I knew then that I had to move here and steep myself in the craft of writing and performing country songs. I was hooked!"  The success of his gospel record So the World May Hear in 2008 allowed Josh to make constant trips back to Nashville to continue writing and performing and in 2010 when Josh admits I just could not stay away anymore, he moved to town fulltime. With a catalogue of nearly 300 songs Josh has written with many successful writers and publishing companies.

John Tomlin & Co.

Presented by Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant - Nashville at Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant (Nashville)

A native Tennessean, John Tomlin grew up steeped in the Bluegrass tradition. Soaking in the sounds of his grandfather's banjo and great uncle's guitar and Lester Flatt-styled singing, John quickly found his place in this musical family, learning the guitar and, ultimately, the mandolin. Over the years, John has brewed his distinctive sound, rooted in the "tradition" of legends like Bill Monroe and Lester Flatt, infused with the "progressive" flavor influence of artists like John Duffey and Sam Bush, and seasoned with a bold shot of passion and energy. John has served up his signature blend of rich vocals and steaming hot mandolin licks on stages around the world‚ from "Music City" honky-tonks, to clubs and festivals throughout the United States, Canada and Europe, including the Johnny Keenan Banjo Festival in Ireland & Co.

The Flauntleroys ft. Alejandro Escovedo, Nick Tremulis, Ivan Julian and Linda Pitmon

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

“I can take a punch, I can take a swing,” sings Alejandro Escovedo on “Man of the World,” the opening salvo of Big Station, his new album on Fantasy Records. The two phrases well describe his 35 years as a musician and two decades as a solo artist, the sum of which attests to the redemptive power of rock’n’roll and the driving role that it has played in his life and art.

 A stylistic synthesist who Rolling Stone notes “is in his own genre,” Escovedo casts his widest musical net to date on Big Station. The title can infer two meanings: A transit junction where journeys converge and then head off to new destinations, and a potent radio signal with an open playlist that brims with diversity and adventurous imagination.

 The album begins with a blast of tongue-in-cheek bravado on “Man of the World” set to a shimmering meld of classic guitar rock and new wave bop. Themes of transition are the fulcrum for songs like the syncopated bounce of the title track and the ghostly march of “Sally Was A Cop,” which surveys the havoc wrought by Mexico’s drug cartels. A jazzy muted trumpet and saxophone weave through his rumination on love and determination on “Can’t Make Me Run.” Change, decay and Escovedo’s place in the world are explored in songs that touch down in the city where he has lived for decades, Austin, TX, as well as his nearby birthplace on, respectively, the Dylanesque “The Bottom of the World” and the dark-hued melodicism of “San Antonio Rain.”

Handmade & Bound Nashville

Presented by Watkins College of Art, Design & Film at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film

The fourth annual edition of Handmade & Bound Nashville (H&BN), a two-day celebration of print, paper and book, will unfold Friday, October 3, and Saturday, October 4, at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film. The free, family-friendly event–part book convention, part literary event and part art show–is presented by the Watkins Library and the Community Education department and features a gallery exhibition, film screening, marketplace with dozens of vendors and distributors, and demos and hands-on activities.

On Friday, October 3, the festival’s exhibition, Poetry and Prints, will open in the Brownlee O. Currey, Jr. Gallery on campus with a reception from 5:00pm to 7:00pm.

The gallery show takes its name from a series of community workshops to be presented this summer by Watkins Community Education, with assistance from the Frist Center for the Visual Arts. The Poetry and Prints workshops, led by professional artists, poets and printmakers, will allow community members to produce handmade books inspired by the art of Wassily Kandinsky, one of the most influential artists of the 20th century and the subject of an upcoming retrospective at the Frist (September 26, 2014 - January 2, 2015).

The H&BN exhibition, on view through October 17, will showcase handmade books created by workshop participants as well as those from local artists and creative professionals.

Handmade and Bound: Poetry and Prints is funded in part by an Arts Access grant from the Metro Nashville Arts Commission. Later on Friday, October 3, Watkins will welcome acclaimed zine author/publisher John Porcellino for the Nashville premiere of Root Hog or Die, a 2014 documentary about his life and work. Currently living in South Beloit, Illinois, the Chicago native has been writing, drawing, and publishing minicomics, comics and graphic novels for more than 25 years; his self-published series King-Cat Comics, begun in 1989, has inspired a generation of alternative comics creators.

With equal parts Thoreau and Hüsker Dü, Porcellino’s comics showcase the “moments between moments” which make up the majority of our lives, but which many fail to notice. The title phrase is John Porcellino’s personal motto in regards to creating King-Cat: the saying about self-reliance refers to the colonial practice of releasing hogs into the wild to fend for themselves or starve.

“Root Hog or Die” (90 min., dir. Dan Stafford) will screen at 7:00pm, in the Watkins Theater, followed by a Q&A with Porcellino.

On Saturday, October 4, from 11:00am to 4:00pm, artists, indie publishers and distributors, and book aficionados will come together to sell, trade and buy handmade and affordable publications, printed matter and book-themed creations at the book arts marketplace. The day will also feature demonstrations and hands-on activities for children and adults, as well as food trucks.

Vendor registration is currently open via the event website handmadeboundnashville.com, Handmade & Bound Nashville on Facebook, or by contacting the Watkins Library at (615) 277-7427. Reservation deadline is September 22, 2014.

Marketplace tables are available to creators of artists’ books or other printed media; independent publishers of zines, mini-comics, chapbooks, etc.; small distributors of zines and other printed media; and producers of book arts, handmade journals, one-of-a-kind book objects, paper and book-themed jewelry, gifts and accessories, and sellers of book, art and printmaking materials.

The Handmade & Bound Nashville festival is an official, registered event of Artober, a broadly collaborative promotional initiative designed to highlight, inform and inspire the community’s participation in the wide range of arts activities offered in the Nashville area during the month of October (www.artobernashville.com).

Handmade & Bound Nashville, Vol. 4 is hosted by the Library at Watkins and Watkins Community Education and is partially funded by the William N. Rollins Fund for the Arts through the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.

Watkins College of Art, Design & Film is located at 2298 Rosa L. Parks Boulevard in Metro Center; free parking is available in the campus lot.

Cumberland Gallery presents Rock Paper, Scissors, and Wood

Presented by Cumberland Gallery at Cumberland Gallery

Cumberland Gallery presents artists Tom Pfannerstill, Johan Hagaman, Billy Renkl, and Kell Black in Rock, Paper, Scissors, and Wood. Works range from realist painting on sculpted wood to figurative concrete work to intricately cut paper. This exhibition is especially relevant to Southern art, as the artists hail from Tennessee and Kentucky. The works reflect a coupling of artistic vision with attention to detail and traditional materials and processes.

When Tom Pfannerstill encounters a discarded, smashed, dirty, lonely little bit of consumer ephemera on the street, he collects it and recreates its varied details in carved wood and paint. Placing the waste of human existence on the white walls of the gallery may seem a tad unconventional but a closer look at these carefully rendered pieces not only confounds us with their implicit accuracy but also surprises us with our own sentimentality over the refuse of our society. This leads to questions about the psychological comfort we find in consumer culture. Tom Pfannerstill has been awarded prestigious fellowships, including one from The Kentucky Arts Council in 2001. His work has been exhibited throughout the United States and is part of collections of the Flint Institute of Arts in Michigan, Bellarmine College in Kentucky, and the Evansville Museum of Arts and Sciences in Indiana. He currently lives and works in Kentucky.

Billy Renkl’s chosen medium are snippets of didactic texts, diagrams, maps, and the candy colored surfaces of postcards from a bygone era. These collected bits and pieces allow for meaning and metaphor in their peculiar beauty and often accidental æsthetic. Of his collages Renkl states, “In many of these works my focus on information graphics is combined with my interest in the ways that abstraction has been used to mediate the natural world.” Billy Renkl grew up in Birmingham, AL attending Auburn University and the University of South Carolina. He currently teaches at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tennessee. Aside from his many solo exhibitions throughout the US, his work has been featured with SouthWest Airlines, How Magazine, Vanderbilt University, Klutz Inc., Strategy & Business, The River Styx, Poems and Plays, and Rigby Publishing.

Johan Hagaman’s intuitively formed figures gently confront us with the hybrid life of plant, woman, and object. The lovely, subdued hues of milk paint across the deceptively soft appearance of molded concrete speak quietly of dreamy figures floating in the air, suspended by vines and bursting with life. Hagaman says of these sculptures, “Identity is a recurring theme in my work. I’m interested in psychology - especially the psychology of seeing: of perceiving, of viewing things from different perspectives, of paying attention in a world fraught with distractions, of beholding wonder, of imagining; and how all these different ways of seeing determine how we shape and are shaped by our world.” Hagaman was born in Southern Indiana, graduating from Indiana University. Her work is exhibited in many galleries throughout the country, and is included in many public and private collections and museums such as the Tennessee State Museum and Evansville Museum of Arts and Sciences. She is also the recipient of the Tennessee Individual Artist Fellowship for 2005. Johan lives and works in Nashville, Tennessee.

Kell Black’s subjects are made up of seemingly useless but beautiful things - dandelions, twigs, spiders, moths, and maple whirligigs – all iconic of Southern summers. Each of these fragments of nature are delicately rendered with scissors from a sheet of paper; edges curl and fray, popping up from their two dimensional surface in luscious mountains and valleys. Black says of his work, “A pencil can trace the most delicate of curves, but an artist wielding a scalpel or a knife must constantly make geometric compromises. Tight curves become a series of angular approximations. This leads the artists to realize that not only does nature abhor a vacuum; it also detests a straight line. Nature is nothing but one big curve, and curves are sexy. And really, if it isn’t sexy, it’s just not art.” Kell Black a professor at Austin Peay State University and has been featured in exhibitions at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, Maryland Institute of Art and Customs House Museum. He is the recipient of NEA’s Southern Art Federations Individual Grant and has engineered a series of “build your own” books featuring paper cities.

Jerry Lee Lewis

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

In 1956, Lewis recorded his first single, a cover of Ray Price’s “Crazy Arms,” which did well locally.  Lewis also worked on some recording sessions with Carl Perkins.  While working at Sun, he and Perkins jammed with Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash.  This session by the “Million Dollar Quartet” was recorded at the time, but it was not released until much later.

In 1957, Lewis became a star with his unique piano-driven sound.  “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” became a hit on the pop, country and R&B charts.  By this time, Lewis had also developed some of his famous stage antics, such as playing standing up and even lighting the occasional piano on fire.  He had such energy and enthusiasm in his performances that he earned the nickname “The Killer” for the way he knocked out his audiences.

Lewis was on a roll with his next single, “Great Balls of Fire,” proving to be another big hit in December 1957.  The following March, Lewis struck again with “Breathless,” which made into the Top 10 of the pop charts.

Journeys in American Realism

Presented by Haynes Galleries at Haynes Galleries

To close the summer season Haynes Galleries presents “Journeys in American Realism,” a diverse exhibition consisting of nine vignette shows. Covering a range of styles and mediums, the vignettes will explore American Realism— past, present, and future— at its finest. The exhibition will be on view from September 5 to October 4 on the Music Row Roundabout. Each vignette will highlight an individual artist or survey a theme and represent the variety of Haynes Galleries’ distinguished roster of artists.

A series of black-and-white photographs by world-renowned portrait photographer Yousuf Karsh will reveal the inner character of some of the 20th century’s most famous figures, Georgia O’Keeffe, Albert Einstein, and Jacques Cousteau among them. His dark and moody photograph of Winston Churchill has become one of the most widely reproduced images in the history of photography.

American masters from the last two centuries are represented in The Real Masters. Names synonymous with American Realism—Sargent, Rockwell, Wyeth (both N.C. And Andrew)— will be on display next to the most notable names of the style today including Stephen Scott Young and Jamie Wyeth.

The glorious qualities of water are showcased in their own section. Views of flowing rivers, rushing waterfalls, and ocean surf are carefully yet expressively crafted in a variety of media. E.P. Lewandowski’s colored pencil views of cascading waterfalls will awe with their precision and vividness.

John Baeder is well known for his images of roadside diners, capturing a form of classic Americana that is rapidly disappearing. The vignette show of his work focuses on these loving tributes to gritty America. A Nashville resident, Baeder’s work has been featured in over 30 solo exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad.

The relationship between two of the most classic subjects in art, the female form and floral still lifes, are on display in their own vignette. The arrangement includes portraits by some of the most accomplished portraitists active today, including Ellen Cooper, Joyce Tenneson, and Burt Silverman, and still lifes by Krista Schoening and Karen Horn, who brings life and light to her images in a manner rarely seen in watercolors.

Philip Michelson’s photorealistic paintings make the everyday iconic. With painstaking technique and remarkable attention to detail, the mundane— a baseball, wine corks, a piece of bubble gum— become exalted. Philip’s paintings delight and awe, but they also change the way we look at things.

A collection of photographs of Andrew Wyeth by several photographers reveal the character of one of the most beloved American artists ever. Set amongst the landscapes he painted at different times during Wyeth’s life, the photos were taken by those who knew him best including his niece Victoria Browning Wyeth.

Plein air painting shines in a vignette show of small-scale landscapes. The challenges and rewards of painting amongst the elements are apparent in the picturesque views. Immediacy and motion are captured in every brushstroke.

A drawing portfolio closes the exhibition, with quick sketches and finished charcoal studies proving works do not need to be created with a brush to be awe-inspiring. 

A viewing of nine vignette shows becomes a journey through American Realism’s past and future at Haynes Galleries. The emotion and skill present in each work are the ties that bind a unique end-of-summer exhibition.

The X Housewife Portraits by Kit Kite

Presented by Julia Martin Gallery at Julia Martin Gallery

The X Housewife Portraits, by Kit Kite, is a self-portrait and installation series which has been a two year creative undertaking. The conceptual self-portrait series documents, through still images, the artist’s personal process of displacement within the house, identity and memory within the home and isolation. In the photographs, Kit is immersed in inanimate household objects, where the common domestic tool is depicted as the setting subject and she as the backdrop, within the self-portrait series.

The conceptual exhibition runs through the month of October. Along with the photographs, the show also includes Object X (film install) a black and white short film viewed within a one-room-house installation.

The X Reflects (A projected time lapse film) in which documents seven thousand self-portraits, taken over the span of two years by the artist in a beveled bathroom mirror.

Kit Kite is a self-taught visual artist and painter, encompassing installation and  performance art. Her work is often conceptual, with a strong personal narrative,  exploring the cultural psyche and the impacts of one’s social consciousness.

"Much Ado About Nothing" by William Shakespeare

Presented by Vanderbilt University Theatre at Vanderbilt University - Neely Auditorium

In this beloved comedy, Shakespeare revisits his oft-considered theme of appearance versus reality.

Ultimately, elaborate traps dupe two sets of lovers into acknowledging and confessing the desire of their hearts.

Women Who Dare to Believe

Presented by Lipscomb University at Lipscomb University - Shamblin Theatre

Two veteran actresses bring to life 21 women from the Scriptures. Bonnie Keen, Dove Award-winner, Grammy Award-nominated recording artist, Studio Tenn founding member, and Nan Gurley, acclaimed actor at Studio Tenn and Tennessee Repertory Theater and NPT producer, portray the women God used to fulfill the covenant and bring in the Messiah.

With cutting-edge dialogue, original music and creative interaction with the audience, this 90-minute musical will inspire viewers with the stories of women who dared to believe and pushed against the pressures and culture of their day.

A scarlet thread of hope runs through the stories of Rahab, Tamar, Leah and Rachel, Deborah, Esther, Anna and Mary. Like women today, these women knew this was their hour, this was their moment. On a bare stage, two women using 20 feet of scarlet fabric leave audiences breathless with the stories of the blood of Jesus running through time from the Garden to the empty tomb.

Meiko

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

Growing up in Roberta, Georgia – population: 800, with its rich assortment of eccentric characters, southern wit and teenage isolation, helped rising singer/songwriter Meiko find a clear voice and keen insight. She’s built an already impressive following, quickly becoming one of the west coast’s most enchanting and promising talents.

“Being an awkward, bored middle schooler was really helpful for my creative skills,” she remembers, “because I spent a lot of time alone, in my room, playing my guitar. I could also run around a lot outside, not having any supervision. When you’re raised in the middle of the woods, your imagination soars.”

Meiko, whose name (pronounced MEE-KO) is derived from her one-fourth Japanese heritage, filled her first album with songs about heartache and rocky relationships; a broken heart can be great for songwriting. The album’s coffeehouse folk-pop was largely sad-eyed and blue, recounting the story of a 20-something girl trying to find someone, anyone, to spend her days and nights with.

“The new songs were all born on the guitar, but I wanted to make this record a little more lively,” she says. We played around with beats and came up with something that people could move to. There is more color, layers and texture this time around - acoustic guitars, piano, strings, horns and background harmonies.”

A self-starter by necessity, Meiko learned very early that a little moxie and imagination goes along way – and that rebelliousness was often an entertaining alternative to boredom. The family lived in a log cabin built by her father, a guitarist who played classic rock songs around the house. Meiko quickly learned to play guitar, too, writing her first song at the age of 5 and honing her vocal chops at church; where she made her singing debut at 8 years old - performing “White Christmas.”

Her music didn’t fall on deaf ears for long. By 2007, while bartending at the Hotel Cafe, ground zero for the new wave of young, folksy songwriters, Meiko finally landed a coveted opening slot. From there she gigged relentlessly, performing wherever and whenever she could, eventually becoming the artist to see at the popular club and at venues around town. The self-released first album arrived that year later reissued by MySpace Records -- making sure to include “Boys With Girlfriends,” a new song that quickly became a Top 15 hit at Triple A radio in 2008. Heavy airplay at stations like KCRW, Santa Monica’s influential NPR powerhouse, led more notice and glowing press. The high profile exposure also caught the ear of key music supervisors, which led to song placements in many television shows and films, including Grey’s Anatomy, One Tree Hill, Pretty Little Liars and 10 Things I Hate About You among others.

Lera Lynn with Dylan Leblanc

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

Born in Houston, Texas, Nashville-based, Georgia-bred singer-songwriter, Lera Lynn’s music may be hard to categorize, but that is likely why she appeals to so many. While the music business likes to wrap everything up in neat little packages, that isn’t always possible. Lera’s music has frequently been filed under “Americana”, “Folk” and “Country.” But those categorizations tell only part of the story. “I just want to stop thinking about music as a marketing campaign,” Lera says. “Ray Charles went from jazz to R&B to country. Paul McCartney will do a ballad next to ‘Helter Skelter,’ and not think twice. The most successful and lasting artists let inspiration steer them, not genre or marketing pitch. I’m just doing what moves me as it comes.”

There’s a haunting voice that can conjure country legends or the best of the singer-songwriters. There’s an understated presence and raw talent. There’s a writer in full command of her craft. “There are definitely aspects of earlier country in there, rockabilly and Western swing, music of the Patsy Cline era,” Lynn says. “I take some things from people like Conway Twitty and some of the other old country greats, and that’s very different from what country is now. Maybe that’s why the ‘country noir’ label is applied to my music so frequently. It probably should be ‘real country,’ or ‘authentic country music.’”

Melodic, atmospheric, and intensely introspective, the material on The Avenues is entirely self-penned and fearlessly personal. Several of the songs, including “Letters,” “Coming Down,” and “Leave It Up to Me,” are reflections on the musician’s difficult relationship with her alcoholic father, who died when she was in her early 20s. “The rest of the songs are about love,” she says. “There’s a lot of love and death happening here. But what else do you write about”?

With The Avenues, Lynn has created a mature album that resolutely defies pigeonholing. There is respect and nostalgia for the past while still pushing towards the future. “Where does my music fit?” says Lynn, “it’s the hardest question to answer. It’s something I’m constantly thinking about, and something people ask. I haven’t found an answer. I think it’s sexy. It’s sophisticated.”

RESTORATIONS with The Smith Street Band

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

There seems to be a common theme developing within recent reviews for Restorations' Strange Behavior - the terrific four-song EP released last year by Paper + Plastick - which is that this Philly outfit plays music for "grown-up punks." I'm not sure if that's necessarily true as the band's background, touring history and all-around response to its relatively short discography collectively point to the fact that its appeal spans generations of music fans. From hardcore, post-punk, shoegaze, ameriicana, roots rock and even stoner metal, the overwhelming consensus that Restorations' singular sound is difficult to pin down (though it's fun to try) and originates from an undeniably earnest place - something that is universally easy to get on board with.

So from what I can tell, "grown-up punks" is merely a term used to describe what the band is not. It's not music made solely for adults; on the other hand, you're not going to find much in the way of buzz-saw riffs, throat-shredding screams or breakneck drumming. And if you're searching for a record where playing loud and fast trumps playing well, I'd go elsewhere. Of course, that doesn't mean that Restorations' brilliant Self-Titled debut full-length isn't exploding with passion and electricity (it is) and we're certainly not inferring that these eight amazing songs won't rip through your skull before knocking the wind out of you with repeated sonic gut punches (they do). What we are emphatically stating is that if you've been searching for a thoughtful, nuanced take on punk and indie rock - and all the sub-genres they entail - Restorations might just be your new favorite band.

Need proof- Listen no further than the stunning opener "Nonlocality," with its atmospheric, spine-tingling intro, gorgeous harmonies and crushing wall of sound which closes out a track that feels nothing short of epic. For the album's 33 + minute duration, Restorations follows a similar trajectory, creating songs that are intricately layered, tension-building monsters which lean heavily on a rhythm section that could probably knock a hole in the side of a Sherman tank. Still, that never takes away from the band's ability to craft warm, stirring melodies, enduring hooks and dense, dynamic song structures. Cascading guitars, pulsing waves of reverb and spacey flourishes are held together by Jon Loudon's raspy-yet-tuneful growl. His delivery is one that transmits confidence, wisdom and a bit of wear and tear - perhaps from years fronting post-hardcore heroes Jena Berlin - but he also sings with a soulful, youthful exuberance that feels like he genuinely loves the process of creating music.

Perhaps that is Restorations' strength as a cohesive unit - that even though this Self-Titled record is a serious work of art with many subtle complexities, achingly intense moments of restraint and driving need to find a unique voice in this word, it also resonates as if it were an absolute joy to write and perform. Even the pristine recording and production from Algernon Cadwallader's Joe Reinhart allows the band to maintain a raw, loose aesthetic and foundation-shaking low end that owes a much to the members' punk and hardcore roots.

Rachel Mac & The Revival Album Release Show w/ Absinthe Junk & The Tyler Warren Band

Presented by The Rutledge at The Rutledge

Join us for live music tonight!

Rachel Mac & The Revival Album release show w/ Absinthe Junk and The Tyler Warren Band.

Rachel Mac + The Revival was never actually meant to exist. What started as the product of rampant insomnia-turned-therapy eventually stayed up late enough to turn into a one-off show, and with that, The Revival was born. Founded by lead guitarist and front-woman, Rachel ‘Mac’ Brandsness, Rachel Mac + The Revival is a raw, strikingly honest modern presence with an old soul reminiscent of the early 70′s. Rachel Mac + The Revival is just that, a revival. A last ditch attempt to hold on to sanity and any semblance of optimism. Brandsness’ former long-term project, Fools For Rowan, had just collapsed in early 2013, leaving the members in serious financial instability. On top of all that one summer evening the same year, Brandsness returned to her Nashville, TN apartment to find her window smashed entirely out of the wall and all of her guitars and equipment stolen. All but one. With that last remaining guitar, she made the decision to make Rachel Mac + The Revival a reality and less than two months later, the first track for the upcoming album was cut in the studio.

Matt Marinchick, Blair's West, Josh Helms and more!

Presented by Margaritaville Nashville at Margaritaville Nashville

Head out to Margaritaville Nashville for live music!

Matt Marinchick performs from 12:00pm to 4:30pm. Like many Country singer-songwriters, Matt Marinchick's journey started with a guitar. "My Dad was about to get rid of his old guitars and I asked him not to. I wanted to try my hand at playing," Marinchick says. Fast forward 17 years and here he is, in Nashville signing his very first record deal with Century Music Group (CMG).

Blair's West performs from 1:00pm-5:00pm.  Country married duo, Blair's West is the collaboration of a singer and a guitar player who happen to have fallen in love. Beverly Blair Bisharat was born on the east coast of Virginia and grew up in a diverse family exposing her to many great artist such as Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, The Beatles and Johnny Cash. Her gift to sing was shared at 18 months of age when she sang her favorite church songs on her parents harth. Over the years, she was coached on vocals, learned guitar and began to write and compose her own music. Beau Westley Hendrich was born on the west cost of California and grew up in a family that cultivated his gift of music. He began guitar lessons when he was thirteen and hasn’t stopped creating with the six strings. Beau has played with several major recording artists such as Chris Young, Bucky Covington, Trent Willmon, Bombshell and Carter's Chord. So, how does an east coast, country musician girl meet a west coast, country musician boy? Well, they met in the middle - Nashville! Beverly and Beau were married in 2009 and born is the duo band, Blair’s West. Blair’s West couples Beverly’s beautiful timbre with Beau’s effortless, passionate guitar playing to create a sweet harmony of traditional country music with a little modern flare. Blair’s West is currently working on their first EP and performing shows around Nashville.

Josh Helms Band will perform from 10:00pm to Close. Josh Helms has spent years honing the craft of songwriting and discovering what it means to deliver those songs to a live audience. "As far back as I can remember I’ve been singing in church and I would always stick at least one of my original songs in the set list," Josh admits. While in college Josh tried out and was selected to be a finalist on USA Networks Nashville Star 2 years in a row. During these trips to Nashville to sing at both the Wildhorse Saloon and The Stage on Broadway Josh fell in love with Nashville and everything the city had to offer. "I knew then that I had to move here and steep myself in the craft of writing and performing country songs. I was hooked!"  The success of his gospel record So the World May Hear in 2008 allowed Josh to make constant trips back to Nashville to continue writing and performing and in 2010 when Josh admits I just could not stay away anymore, he moved to town fulltime. With a catalogue of nearly 300 songs Josh has written with many successful writers and publishing companies.

Arnez J

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

 To those in the know, Arnez J is quickly emerging as one of the hottest, most talked about comedic artists in the game. His raw energy, talent and comedic skill quickly landed Arnez the coveted hosting slot on BET’s longest-running comedy series “Comic View” for two seasons joining the ranks of hosts such as D.L. Hughley and Cedric the Entertainer. Arnez J's charisma and physical agility are unforgettable. "J is a whirling dervish on stage--he runs, jumps, spins, slides, slips, and mugs through a performance, acting out many of his bits while describing them," wrote Doug Kaufman in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Arnez J admits of himself “I've always expressed my things through mannerisms and facial expressions rather than speaking On his own at age 14, Arnez lied about his age to get a job at a gas station to work his way through school. With dreams to become a professional baseball player, Arnez began working as a flight attendant when those baseball plans fell through. It was while working as a flight attendant that Arnez discovered his comedic talent. He realized that he had the ability to keep the passengers and crew laughing and upon encouragement from friends, he made his first attempt at stand-up comedy. After that first night on stage, he knew what he wanted to do. He left his job with the airlines and made the decision to devote all of his time to a career in comedy. Arnez J got a chance to combine his ambitions as an athlete and performer: he was recruited by scouts for the famed Harlem Globetrotters basketball team. After several months, a knee injury ended his Globetrotters finally clearing the way for him to devote himself full time to standup comedy. An Atlanta native, Arnez began working the comedy circuit in Georgia and quickly became one of "Hotlanta's" funniest newcomers. A finalist in the "Bay Area Black Comedy Competition," Arnez was immediately noticed by the entertainment industry and was asked to make his first television appearance on Showtime's "Comedy Club Network." Numerous television appearances soon followed including appearances on "The Keenen Ivory Wayans Show," "Louie Anderson's Comedy Showcase," Comedy Central's "Make Me Laugh," NBC's "Friday Night Videos," “The Mo’nique Show”, Russell Simmons' "Def Comedy Jam," headlining Showtime’s recent "Shaquille O'Neal Presents: All Star Comedy Jam," his own BET "Comic View Grandstand Hour Special", “Comedy Central Presents: Arnez J” and many others. Today, Arnez is widely considered one of the best working artists, with a polished and highly entertaining standup routine that keeps his audiences entertained without having to use profanity. In keeping with his plan, Arnez keeps up a dizzying pace performing for sold out crowds at Arenas and other venues across the country.

An Evening with Asia

Presented by The Franklin Theatre at The Franklin Theatre

When they appeared in the early '80s, Asia seemed to be a holdover from the ‘70s, when supergroups and self-important progressive rockers reigned supreme. Featuring members of such seminal art rock bands as King Crimson (John Wetton), Emerson, Lake & Palmer (Carl Palmer), and Yes (Steve Howe), as well as Geoff Downes from the Buggles, Asia did feature stretches of indulgent instrumentals on their records. However, they also could be surprisingly poppy, and that is what brought them to the top of the charts with their debut album, Asia, and its hit single, "Heat of the Moment."

Alpha, their second album, also had a couple of hits ("Don't Cry" and “The Smile Has Left Your Eyes") but its follow-up, Astra, was a flop. The group disbanded in 1985, only to reunite in 1990 without John Wetton; John Payne took his place. After churning out a couple of new songs for a greatest-hits collection, the band hit the road, including two sold-out dates in front of 20,000 fans in Moscow, of all places.

Thereafter, they toured sporadically and released Aqua (1992), Aria (1994), Arena (1996), Aura (2001), and Silent Nation (2004). The band's lineup reverted to its original form featuring Wetton, Palmer, Howe, and Downes for Phoenix (2008) and Omega (2010). In 2012, the original Asia lineup returned with the studio album XXX, featuring the single "Face on the Bridge." The following year, Howe announced his amicable departure from the group to pursue other projects, and in 2014, Asia released the album Gravitas, featuring new guitarist Sam Coulson.

The Outsiders

Presented by Nashville Children's Theatre at Nashville Children's Theatre

The best selling young adult novel of all time comes to NCT's stage in a powerful, hard-edged production that has been three years in the making!  In this intense coming-of-age story set in 1965 Tulsa, Oklahoma, you're either a Greaser or a Soc. When these two gangs from opposite sides of the track clash, young Ponyboy will have to depend on his brothers and friends to survive.  Written by a teenager, about teenagers and for teenagers, S.E Hinton's explosive first novel has captured generations of adolescent readers and is just as relevant today as it was when it first burst on the scene almost 50 years ago.

NCT's Artistic Director Scot Copeland says, "Under the inspired direction of Jeff Church (in my opinion the most innovative theatrical director for teenage audiences in America) collaborating with NCT's amazing creative team, and featuring a powerhouse cast of Nashville's most exciting young actors, we are finally ready to rock Nashville with a production that will not soon be forgotten!"  Stay gold.

ALLEN STONE with Bad Rabbits

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

Every Sunday night, Lightning 100 brings you our critically acclaimed live concert series featuring national, regional and local artists. The show broadcasts live from 3rd & Lindsley on Sundays.

In the past two years, Allen Stone has gone from being a soul singer from Chewelah, WA to selling out venues where the audience is bigger than his hometown’s entire population – and it blows his mind. “Basically my job is to throw a party for people every night when we’re on tour,” he says with a sense of wonder.


Stone’s world has expanded dramatically since he released his self-titled album on his own stickystones label in late 2011. It shot into the Top 10 of Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and entered the Top 5 of iTunes’ R&B/Soul charts and soon the unsigned artistwas appearing on shows like “Conan,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Last Call with Carson Daly” and “Live from Daryl’s House.” USA Today hailed him as a “pitch-perfect powerhouse” and The New York Times’ Jon Pareles likened his socially conscious music to that of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway and Bill Withers. Stone was voted one of mtvU's "Freshman 5" in late 2012 and tapped as VH1’s first “You Oughta Know” artist of 2013. His new album, which Stone is co-producing with Swedish soul singer/multi-instrumentalist Magnus Tingsek, will be released later this year by Capitol Records.

Paolo Nutini

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Just one listen to Paolo Nutini's magnificent third long-player Caustic Love reveals exactly why it was worth the wait. It's been five years since the towering success of its 2009 predecessor, Sunny Side Up, which like the 27-year-old Paisley-born singer's 2006 debut These Days, sold a staggering 1.5 million copies in the UK alone. Described by Q magazine as "a truly excellent modern soul album", it's a record that acknowledges the classic music of the past while fixing its eyes firmly on the future. There may be echoes of some of soul music's greats within the grooves of Caustic Love – Otis Redding, Curtis Mayfield, Bill Withers, among others – but taken as a whole it's a masterful creation which proves Paolo to be very much his own man.

Song Suffragettes and Moonshine + Music

Presented by The Listening Room Cafe at The Listening Room Cafe

Head out to The Listening Room Café for live music!

Come see the Song Suffragettes, Nashville's newest and brightest female singer-songwriters, in an intimate, one-of-a-kind setting.  Be the first to discover the next big stars of country music...and maybe a surprise special guest.  Every Monday night...only at The Listening Room Café!

Moonshine + Music (This is a First Come First Served Event : No Reservations will be Accepted on this Event.)

Deep in the wooded hills, where moonlight peers through the cracks in the tree canopy, a legacy was born. By night, the moonshiners worked hard to refine their special brews into a story worthy tale of excellence. While the sugars fermented, the fumes rose to the air mixing with the melodies of days long gone by and promise yet to come. The music that rang from the hills on these nights solidified an iconic definition of what is means to be made in America. Moonshine and Music have forever been linked to existing on the edge of society, where the fun begins and the stories carry on for a lifetime. 

It is our desire at The Listening Room Cafe to bring this tradition to you, so we teamed up with American Born Moonshine to showcase the best that Nashville has to offer. Join us every Monday night, starting at 8:00pm until the morning hours, to hear the best up and comers in music mixed with some of the names you've heard and love. You never know who may show up to play a few songs... This is for the players, the industry and the people who understand what music means to all of us.

The best part, you'll hear the entire night through our state-of-the-art BOSE sound system. We mix the best sounding room in Nashville, with the best talent and the best liquor. When we do something, we make sure to do it right. Come check it out.

Will Fogarty

Presented by Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant - Nashville at Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant (Nashville)

Pennsylvania native Will Fogarty likes a soulful sound, whether it’s found in traditional country, classic R&B, or in older rock and pop. His favorites range from Keith Urban to Smokey Robinson and span the decades from Elvis to the Eagles. John Lennon, Rod Argent and The Zombies, Los Lonely Boys, Dolly, and the late Donna Summer are in his pantheon of performers. Outside of music, Will finds satisfaction and the fun interaction that comes from teaching children—and adults—to swim. He recently completed six months volunteering with Special Olympics swimmers. He is a sports fan, who has played on Music Mondays of Fox Sports Radio and is grateful for the experience of working as a production intern for syndicated sportscasters Tomm Looney and JT the Brick.

Sam Smith

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

When he was 18 years old, Sam Smith wrote his first truthful song, a flashbulb moment for the brilliant blue-eyed soul singer. Three years later and the song has long since been discarded as a naive folly. Like all singer songwriters that are rich in emotion, knee-deep in their own small personal complications and dependent on their precociously youthful talent to engage with the world, Sam resolved never to write a song again that didn’t connect straight from the heart. The first set of results, delivered with breathtaking vocal depth and range, will be put to the litmus test of public opinion when his debut album drops in 2014.

TAKING BACK SUNDAY with frnkiero andthe cellabration

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Taking Back Sunday are a band who truly need no introduction. Since forming in Long Island in 1999, the group have sold millions of albums, evolved from a scrappy punk act into seasoned songwriters and continued to forge a successful career. That spirit of resilience and innovation is dripping all over the band's sixth full-length "Happiness Is" (which is also their first release for Hopeless Records). As you can guess from the title the album addresses some heady concepts, but it simultaneously showcases a new musical and conceptual leap for this band of mainstream misfits that's certain to endear them to fans both new and old. 

The group's second album since reviving the classic lineup of vocalist Adam Lazzara, guitarist/vocalist John Nolan, guitarist Eddie Reyes, bassist Shaun Cooper and drummer Mark O'Connell was written over a two year period with no involvement from a record label for the first time since their legendary 2002 debut "Tell All Your Friends." "The last record [2011's 'Taking Back Sunday'] was us feeling each other out and learning how to work together again and on this one everybody was a little more comfortable and free to express themselves," Lazzara explains. "At this point in the game we all know each other's strengths and weaknesses so well that it has made writing music together a bit easier," O'Connell confirms. "Don't get me wrong, there are still arguments but we are older and wiser and with that comes less fighting." 

Co-produced by longtime collaborators Mike Sapone in Long Island and Marc Jacob Hudson in Michigan, and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer, the album sees the band expanding their musical palette and stretching out sonically in ways they've never done before by utilizing each producer's strengths. "Recording with Marc was great because we've been working together for a decade on the road so we are so relaxed around him," Lazzara says, adding that the fact the studio was located in a remote wooded area in the Midwest helped free the band from external distractions during the recording process. "When it comes to Mike that's like our second home and it helped make those sessions feel so familiar since we actually recorded our very first demos there."

Citizen Cope - Clarence Greenwood Recordings 10th Anniversary Tour

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

$1 per ticket sold will go to Turnaround Arts to purchase musical instruments for middle schoolers in Lame Deer, Montana—a community on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation. Lame Deer is part of Turnaround Arts http://turnaroundarts.pcah.gov/ , a program of President Obama’s President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities that is using arts education to help students succeed.

Cope’s musical education was catch-as-catch can. Folk tales—whether through William Faulkner or Big Bill Broonzy—shaped his sensitivity. A few college courses at Texas Tech alternately bored and excited him. In the Austin of the eighties, he took sound classes and found himself fooling with a primitive four-track setup. Turntables intrigued him. He heard hip hop as inspired invention. For years, he got lost in his self-designed lab, cooking up beats and motifs that only later would be shaped into songs.

Skin Deep: The History and Practice of Indigenous Tattooing

Presented by MTSU Department of Sociology and Anthropology

In 1777, the word 'tattoo' was defined as "an indelible mark or figure fixed upon the body by insertion of pigment under the skin or by the production of scars." For thousands of years before that date, however, Indigenous peoples practiced various forms of tattooing not only to beautify themselves or mark significant life achievements and their identities, but also to induce healing and to please or seek protection from particular spirits which inhabited their world.

Dr. Lars Krutak is an anthropologist, photographer, and the preeminent scholar on on Indeginous tattoo traditions. For nearly twenty years, he has traveled the world meeting people to learn about their unique tattoos and the meanings behind them. In 2009 he produced and hosted the Discovery Channel documentary program "Tattoo Hunter."

 

For this free lecture presented as by the MTSU Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Dr. Krutak will discuss the messages encoded in ancient and more contemporary forms of Indigenous tattooing, using word, imagery, and video to examine how tattoos relate to beauty, power, spirituality, and belief.

 

Krutak's new book Tattoo Traditions of Native North America: Ancient and Contemporary Expressions of Identity will be available for signing after the program.

Priscilla Ahn

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

Singer-songwriter Priscilla Ahn embarked upon a career the old-fashioned way: she packed her belongings in a car—“two guitars, clothes, and some other junk I really didn't need to bring”—and left her Pennsylvania home for L.A. That she found steady gigs, a supportive circle of fellow artists and a record deal in a relatively short period of time—give or take several months of bad waitressing jobs—will come as no surprise after a single listen to “Dream,” the lilting opening track of A Good Day, her full-length debut on Blue Note Records. Ahn artfully balances youthful whimsy and grown-up sophistication, playing guitar and singing in a warm, welcoming, and stunningly self-assured voice.

While her peers angle to be MySpace superstars or laptop geniuses, Ahn is impressively old-school. She picked up the guitar at age 14, urged to do so by her classic rock-loving dad, but truly inspired once she heard a guy in her high school play. By the time she was 16, she was looking for the nearest open-mic night, which happened to be at a local Borders Book Store. Getting a driver’s license the following year meant she could do even more gigs 90 minutes away in Philadelphia.

Ahn had considered pursuing music in college, but a teacher who oversaw her audition at a state school offered her insights perhaps even more valuable than further study. As Ahn recalls, “The music professor there really got me. He knew that I played guitar and wrote songs and called me up at home and said, ‘Maybe you should think about not going to school right now and pursuing songwriting as a career. After school, your whole life might be so different and you may not have that opportunity again.’ I really thought about it and finally took his advice. And it changed my life.”

Presented by Margaritaville Nashville at Margaritaville Nashville

Head out to Margaritaville Nashville for live music!

Josh Helms Band will perform from 12:00pm to 4:30pm. Josh Helms has spent years honing the craft of songwriting and discovering what it means to deliver those songs to a live audience. "As far back as I can remember I’ve been singing in church and I would always stick at least one of my original songs in the set list," Josh admits. While in college Josh tried out and was selected to be a finalist on USA Networks Nashville Star two years in a row. During these trips to Nashville to sing at both the Wildhorse Saloon and The Stage on Broadway Josh fell in love with Nashville and everything the city had to offer. "I knew then that I had to move here and steep myself in the craft of writing and performing country songs. I was hooked!"  The success of his gospel record So the World May Hear in 2008 allowed Josh to make constant trips back to Nashville to continue writing and performing and in 2010 when Josh admits I just could not stay away anymore, he moved to town fulltime. With a catalogue of nearly 300 songs Josh has written with many successful writers and publishing companies.

Liz Moriondo

Presented by Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant - Franklin at Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant (Franklin)

Liz Moriondo opens up her mouth to sing, and out comes a blend of Shania Twain’s breathy perfection and Bonnie Raitt’s sensual, bluesy grit. If you listen closely enough, you can still hear the Ozark Mountains of her native Missouri where she first started singing in front of audiences at the age of 3. As all of us know, it takes guts to make the big move to Nashville. But after 2 years of intense college basketball and poli-sci debates, at Drury University in Springfield, MO, Liz knows how to face down a challenge. She has opened for numerous artists including Lee Brice, Thompson Square, and Sara Evans, and has played side stages for Tim McGraw, Train, One Republic, Big & Rich, and many more.  Just recently Liz was sought out by A-list producer David Huff to work on her newest project with the top players and engineers in Nashville.

Rachel Pearl and Erika Chambers Open Mic Night & Acoustic Hour; Lower 40 Industry Showcase

Presented by The Rutledge at The Rutledge

Rachel Pearl's Open Mic Night and Erika Chamber's Acoustic Hour.

Rachel Pearl hails from Bowling Green, KY where she grew up with music. Her mother is a popular blues singer from that area and her great Uncle Bill has played at Woodstock and made music all over the world. She moved to the Nashville area in 2000 to learn more about herself and music. She travels the US with her ukulele and guitar singing original jazzy tunes, Top 40 hits, and jazz standards. -Facebook Bio

Per Erika Chambers' ReverbNation page "I write songs in the quiet of my own mind. I may be in the car, at work, in the shower or in bed, but it’s always private. personal. I’m inspired by old hymns and mountain songs, my great grandmother, a special needs child, a suicide, a news story, my time in Africa, a guitar lick, maybe even an old flame. Most recently, my songs have been birthed from the loss of my sister. Regardless of the inspiration, I am always amazed when my music reaches into the heart of a stranger and stirs something. I hope it stirs something in you. Peace. Erika"

MEWITHOUTYOU Catch For Us The Foxes 10 Year Anniversary Tour with special guests The Appleseed Cast & more!

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Those who have followed mewithoutYou’s music in recent years will likely see their new, self-released Ten Stories as a return to old form. Their previous record, It’s All Crazy!, etc. had been a drastic and intentional departure. Aaron Weiss’ manic, unorthodox hollering was nowhere to be found, deliberately giving way to a more conventional melodic vocal approach. The explosive, schizophrenic drumming and swarthy, tempestuous low end (Rickie Mazzotta and Greg Jehanian, respectively) were accordingly subdued, relegated largely to keeping basic time. Chris Kleinberg had jumped ship for med school, leaving Mike Weiss reluctantly alone on electric guitar, feeling like a session player embellishing his little brother’s folk songs, no longer part of a coherent unit.

In short, due largely to their singer’s creative wanderlust, the band had entirely forsaken whatever they’d become; in an effort to spurn the familiar, they had grown unrecognizable, alienating no shortage of fans in the process. Those fans, and whoever has come to miss what was most distinct about mewithoutYou, will welcome Ten Stories as the rightful follow-up to their 2006 release, Brother/Sister, and 2004’s Catch for Us the Foxes. To be sure, the band hasn’t altogether renounced the psychedelic-rustic-pop elements of It’s All Crazy!; rather, they have renounced the scrupulous control inherent to its renunciation. Simply put, they seem to have let go of the steering wheel, and are back to writing music, well, ‘naturally.’

LoCash Cowboys

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

“Country music really boils down to the power of the song,” sums up the eloquent Preston Brust. “We wanted to broaden our listeners, to reach the older crowd, the younger crowd, and the middle crowd. And we really tried to pick songs that were the best songs we could find to define LoCash. Hopefully we achieve that in this album.” Though the high energy, roof-raising spirit of LoCash's live shows (and over 10 million YouTube views) tends to brand them as a party band, LoCash Cowboys, as the new album proves, are super-focused musicians and songwriters. Here, they showcase their light-hearted, fun-loving edge (“Little Miss Crazy Hot,” the redneck anthems “Hey, Hey, Hey” and “C.O.U.N.T.R.Y”), as well as their emotional side (“I Hope,” “Best Seat in the House,” Chris's tribute to his late father, and “Keep in Mind,” a parent's loving farewell to a child venturing into the world).

LoCash (the named is derived from a group of Preston's high school friends) got their launch in the summer of 2002, when Chris, a high school all-star football player from Baltimore, Maryland, worked as the entertainment director at Nashville's Wildhorse Saloon. Preston, a Kokomo, Indiana, preacher's son who wrote his first song at age eleven on his paper route, had just arrived in town. Chris offered him a job filling in for him as a DJ.

One night they were goofing around on the mic, not even singing, when their electrifying banter caught everyone by surprise. It made Chris think about how Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin—idols of his grandfather—could hold an audience in the palms of their hands, and make them part of the show.

As Preston recalls, “It was like, "What is going on in our lives? Not one good thing has happened to us this year. You start thinking some kind of energy is against us. Then all of a sudden you get a phone call, and a voice says, "This is Keith Urban. I'm releasing your song, “You Gonna Fly,” as my next single."  Talk about a light at the end of the tunnel!"

That's when it started to change.” And change it has, both personally and professionally. Chris is now married with a young son, Caden. (Preston is still single, “but looking.”) And the duo, which formerly wrote and recorded the theme song for from Tanya Tucker's reality show “Tuckerville,” is in negotiation for a television show of their own.

Though the show will likely emphasis the entertainment side of LoCash's effusive personality, Chris never loses sight of one thing: “We're very serious musicians. This is our career. There is no Plan B. This is our life.”

Trevor Finlay

Presented by Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant - Nashville at Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant (Nashville)

Born in Winnipeg, Canada, Trevor grew up listening to the work of Muddy Waters, the Rolling Stones, Albert Collins, B.B. King, Johnny Cash, Brian Setzer and Buddy Guy. He paid his dues north of the border, and through steady touring, club gigs and annual appearances at respected events like the Ottawa Blues Festival, the young blues/rocker built a powerful fan following and enviable radio airplay. It was inevitable that Trevor would eventually find his way to Nashville. His eclectic, stir-fried mix of guitar-driven blues, rock and rockabilly created a natural fusion with Southern rock, gospel and contemporary country influences introduced to him by working with such collaborators as Sam Tate, Rich Fagan, Ray Barnette, and Jimbeau Hinson to name just a few.

Touring in the U.S. and abroad remains a mainstay of Trevor’s musical popularity. Over the course of his career, he’s shared the stage with everyone from John Hiatt, James Brown and Booker T and the MG’s to Kid Rock, Kanye West and Chris Isaac, as well as Johnny Winter and Buddy Guy. Trevor spent seven weeks on tour in Australia in 2007, earning an endorsement for a VioLap, a unique lap steel guitar created and produced by Cole Clark Guitars.

The Secret Sisters

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

The Secret Sisters initiate many new traditions on their second full-length album, Put Your Needle Down [Republic Records]—produced by the legendary T Bone Burnett. The duo of Laura and Lydia Rogers has certainly come a long way from their critically acclaimed 2010 self-titled debut and an even longer way from their childhood in Florence, Alabama—just outside of the legendary music mecca Muscle Shoals. Embracing a myriad of styles and focusing on songwriting this time around, their growth becomes evinced within both the music and the title.

In order to fully realize their identity, the girls immersed themselves in songwriting almost as soon as their first offering hit the shelves four years ago. Their inaugural effort, though lauded unanimously, only included two originals, and Laura and Lydia wanted to reveal a different side of themselves. In between tours with everybody from She & Him and Paul Simon to Ray Lamontagne, filming their own PBS special with Elvis Costello and Jakob Dylan, and recording music for the platinum-selling soundtrack to The Hunger Games, they bounced back and forth from album writing sessions in Nashville, Seattle, and Los Angeles. By the time they entered an L.A. studio with Burnett in early 2013, they had penned an overwhelming catalog of new music.

With a little guidance from the legendary Burnett, they harnessed a newfound spark, and it fuels the album. Stirring up a gumbo of country, Americana, blues, folk, and gospel, Put Your Needle Down simmers with an elegant vision.

Starting that vision is the first single “Rattle My Bones”. Written by the girls’ longtime friend Brandi Carlile, the track skips from a Southern-style guitar twang into an upbeat refrain, opening the door into The Secret Sisters’ world. On the other end of the spectrum, the final track and consequentially first written for Put Your Needle Down, “River Jordan”, pays homage to the pair’s faith and gospel influences.

The Secret Sisters’ own history comes to life vividly within Put Your Needle Down. They’re writing their legacy now.

tUnE-yArDs

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Merrill Garbus has performed as tUnE-yArDs since 2009, and that band name has always been synonymous with forward movement—whether because of her explosive performance style or the always-surprising way in which her songs unfold. First gaining notice with the debut BiRd-BrAiNs, which The New York Times called "a confident do-it-yourselfer's opening salvo: a staticky, low-fi, abrasive attention-getter," Garbus forged a reputation as a formidable live presence through relentless touring. In 2011, tUnE-yArDs released its second album, w h o k i l l, a startling and sonically adventurous statement that led to a whirlwind period where Garbus and bassist Nate Brenner accrued accolades from critics (including the #1 spot on the Village Voice's 2011 Pazz and Jop poll), performed in front of increasing numbers of rapturous crowds around the world, and collaborated with the likes of Yoko Ono and ?uestlove. It was a thrilling ride, but it was one that needed a little bit of recovery afterward.

Evening with Storytellers featuring Eric Jacobson and Bryan Lane

Presented by Williamson County Library Foundation at Williamson County Public Library

As part of the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Franklin, the library will host An Evening with Storytellers, featuring Eric Jacobson and Bryan Lane. The presentation will highlight important aspects of the battle as well as the people involved, and the focus will be on why this one battle was so important to the outcome of the war and to the future of our town of Franklin. Eric Jacobson is the Chief Executive Officer and Historian with the Battle of Franklin Trust, and has published several books about the impact of the Civil War in this area. The library has helped Bryan Lane publish his recent book on General Adams, one of the five generals killed during the battle. Both authors will share why this battle mattered, in the past, in the present day, and in our town's future. Doors open at 6:00 for wine and appetizers, and the program begins at 6:30 on Thursday, October 9, at the main branch of the Williamson County Library at 1314 Columbia Avenue. The evening is sponsored by the Library Foundation, which exists to give support for the library above and beyond what county money can provide. The Foundation began in 1948 and has had varying levels of activity during that time. For the past several years their focus has been supporting children's programs, funding the summer reading program and other events and activities. The program will also offer an overview of the many classes, events, and activities that YOUR library has to offer to the community.

Caleb Hawley with Oliver & The Spectacles

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

Harlem’s Caleb Hawley is an American soul singer, songwriter and performer. Like savvy throwback crooners Mayer Hawthorne and Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Hawley channels early Stevie Wonder and other Motown sounds into a complete, magnetic package.

Raised in Minneapolis by a family of preachers and therapists, Hawley’s family fueled his on-stage charisma and perceptive, witty lyrics. “Growing up in an acapella church, we didn’t have instruments. It forced everyone to learn how to sing harmony,” Hawley says. “We mostly sang older hymns, which is probably what drew me to gospel and eventually soul music.” Hawley’s grandfather hooked him on an early Ray Charles record, leading him into the fertile soul music of the sixties and seventies.

Hawley spent his early 20’s touring the country with only an acoustic guitar and his dog Fargo. “There’s no place I’d rather be than on a stage in front of people wanting to hear music I’ve created,” Hawley says. In those years, Hawley racked up hundreds of gigs, along with multiple songwriting awards for the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, Telluride Troubadour Competition, SongCircle Contest and more.

Now a talented full band multiplies that energy across the country. “I used to love listening rooms,” Hawley admits, “but now I pretty much just wanna get a party started.” Music Without Labels agrees, calling the stocked setup “a fantastic show, full of danceable riffs and singalong choruses all held together by Hawley’s tremendous charisma.” The Chicagoist says, “The New York-based musician has a flair for soulful songwriting and a voice that will blow your hair back.”

2014 marks the release of a pair of EPs: Side 1 and Side 2. Hawley says “They are a bit different stylistically, but each share my own voice artistically and literally”.

Side 1 is a time capsule from the 60’s, employing a full string section from the NY Philharmonic to capture the authentic R&B sounds of the sixties and seventies . Side 2 brings us to the present with beefier beats and more modern production. Hawley’s vocal swagger, his old Alabama garage found Harmony electric guitar and live rhythm section tie the EPs together. Lucius drummer and producer Dan Molad co-produced both with Hawley.

Side 1 enjoyed a January 2014 debut, and Side 2 is set for a Fall 2014 release.

Darrell Scott

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

I recorded the album at home where we sat up around the grand piano where THE pianist of country music, Hargus "pig" Robbins, presided (pig started recording in nashville in 1957 - the 1st hit he played on: George Jones' 'White Lightnin') - on drums, my kayak/bicycling friend, Kenny Malone, a studio legend since 1975 (his 1st hit was Dobie Gray's 'Drift Away') - on upright bass: Dennis Crouch (we'd played together in Steve Earle's Bluegrass Dukes & Dennis has played on virtually all T Bone Burnett's recordings for the last 10 years & toured with Elvis Costello, Elton John, Robert Plant & Alisson Krauss). We four were the tracking band. Then I stayed with legends: Lloyd Green on pedal steel (Don Williams, Charlie Pride), on harmonicas: Charlie McCoy (everyone from Dylan to Cash) & Mickey Raphael (Willie). Then singers, Marcus Hummon, Jonell Mosser & Kathy Chiavola (from Dixie Chicks to Emmylou Harris) and mixed & mastered by Ray Kennedy (Lucinda Williams, Malcolm Holcomb)

It is country music how I remember it - with some of the players that made the very music that was both lifting & breaking my heart as a kid. What I find is the country music industry has changed, but country & working people have not changed so much. They still love country music when they hear it. I hope they get to hear this.

Casting Crowns

Presented by Bridgestone Arena at Bridgestone Arena

In the past year, Casting Crowns has garnered numerous accolades including three GRAMMY® nominations, an RIAA 2x multi-Platinum certification and multiple RIAA Gold certifications, with total album sales surpassing 8 million. Building on that momentum, The THRIVE Tour is sure to not disappoint, with a set list that includes Casting Crowns’ biggest hits – spanning more than a decade of ministry – in addition to selections from the group’s new release, THRIVE (Beach Street/Reunion Records), the band’s first full-length effort in two years.

The songs on THRIVE are an extension of what lead singer/songwriter Mark Hall has been teaching his students at Eagle’s Landing First Baptist Church in Atlanta, where he serves as youth pastor. The heart behind the project is for these songs to encourage believers to dig down into the roots of who they are in Christ so that they are fully equipped to reach out and share their faith with others. Following this theme, half of the songs on the album are focused on “reaching out,” while the other half are dedicated to “digging deep.”

Signature Series: Blakemore Trio

Presented by Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt University - Blair School of Music - Ingram Hall

Amy Dorfman, piano, Carolyn Huebl, violin, Felix Wang, cello

Goethe described chamber music as “(three) rational people conversing.” The Blakemore Trio pays homage to Franz Joseph Haydn, heralded as the creator of modern chamber music, opening its program with one of his delightful chamber music gems. A set of Bagatelles by Armenian composer Tigran Mansurian follows. Mansurian’s writing captures the musical traditions of his country, combining influences of ancient chant and modern forms. The evening then turns to Eastern-European folk music, with a piano trio by Czech composer Bedrich Smetana. Written in 1855, Smetana dedicates this towering tribute to the memory of his daughter, who succumbed to scarlet fever when she was four years old.

Presented with gratitude to Delphine and Ken Roberts for their generous support of the Blair School.

Family Film: "Coraline"

Presented by Frist Center for the Visual Arts at Frist Center for the Visual Arts

Inspired by the artistic examination of Surrealism in Real/Surreal: Selections from the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Frist Center is pleased to announce a three-part film series. Through dreamlike atmosphere, nonlinear storytelling, and delightfully twisted imagery, these films defy convention and delve into the uncanny moments of the everyday.

Coraline is a curious young girl who unlocks a mysterious door in her family's new home and enters into an adventure in a parallel reality. On the surface, this “Other World” eerily mimics her own life—though it is much more fantastical and sinister. Coraline must rely on her resourcefulness, determination, and bravery to escape the clutches of her “Other Mother” and get back home. Directed by Henry Selick and Mike Cachuela. Starring Dakota Fanning, John Hodgman, Teri Hatcher. Rated PG. 100 minutes. 2009. DVD.

In Nashville, there’s an old, decrepit plantation house where three bedraggled but refined, white gentlemen drop beats, craft wordplay, design artwork, and arrange orchestral maneuvers in the dark. The structure is called Joy Mansion, and the men who dwell there staring each other down and exercising their creative rivalry for all it’s worth collaborate under the moniker of Paper Route.

Having toured relentlessly with the likes of Passion Pit and mewithoutyou, won hearts and minds with their debut album Absence (2009), paid musical tribute to Lou Reed to the man’s imperturbable face at South by Southwest, and insinuated themselves into pop culture consciousness when their song, “The Music,” appeared in the film (500) Days of Summer, Paper Route have now seen fit to go for broke on the possibility that epic earnestness, lyrical depth, and poetic heft can all coincide within one ridiculously catchy song collection primarily preoccupied with—wait for it–tragedy, disappointment, and loss. Behold The Peace of Wild Things.

Everyone can relate to hurt,” observes J.T. Daly, Paper Route’s chief lyricist, singer, and artwork conjurer. For Daly and bandmate Chad Howat, The Peace of Wild Things banks on the hope that popular art can be made to arise out of horrible situations. Whereas the timing of the album’s production schedule coincided with a dire cancer diagnosis within Howat’s immediate family, the lyrics Daly brought to the table largely document the dissolution of his marriage. As Daly sees it, the risk of raw candor and vulnerability is the whole point, “If I’m not terrified by what I’m doing, I’d prefer to move back to Ohio and work on my art. I’m drawn to the fact that it makes me feel uncomfortable.”

Gary Morris

Presented by The Franklin Theatre at The Franklin Theatre

The romantic ballads of Texas-born Gary Morris were staples of country radio in the1980s -- none more so than "The Wind Beneath My Wings," which was covered by Bette Midler later in the decade and became a song heard at weddings perhaps more often than any other.

From the start, Morris had a powerful voice well suited to the musical theater stage, and after his string of country hits came to an end he enjoyed a successful theatrical career. Morris didn't give up on country music at first; he recorded 12 country albums in all, including the innovative, mostly acoustic Plain Brown Wrapper, and he notched 16 Top Ten singles.

But his role in Les Misérables evolved into a part in the show’s touring production and then in its symphonically accompanied recording. These activities took time, and Morris' country career suffered. His live-theater activities,on the other hand, flourished; he appeared with another former progressive country singer, Linda Ronstadt, in the Broadway adaptation of Puccini's opera La Bohème, and he spent much of the 1990s working on other pop projects such as a PBS special concert performance in the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, Russia.

Morris returned to country music as a performer in Branson, MO, and as a producer in the late 90s. He has shepherded the career of his son, Matthew, and has often performed private concerts for corporate clients. Morris resides at his own fly-fishing lodge in the Colorado Rockies.

PETER PANDEMIC

Presented by Douglas Corner Cafe at Douglas Corner Cafe

PETER PANDEMIC returns to Douglas Corner Cafe Friday, October 10th at 9PM to rock the room with powerful songs, infectious melodies and killer vocal harmonies. This is a DON'T MISS show!

Douglas Corner is for songwriters and aspiring artists, what the world famous “Improv” is for comedians. Douglas Corner Cafe began in 1987 when Recording Engineer, Mervin Louque, partnered with businessman, Rick Martin, to create a music venue aimed at showcasing new singers and songwriters in Nashville. It soon grew to become a well known “Home Away From Home” for Nashville’s top songwriters and future music stars. It is a place for writers and performers to come together in an intimate environment with the common goal of hearing and creating great music. At Douglas Corner, you will often be entertained by future hit songs long before they are even heard by the artists who will eventually record them. It is also where one might often witness an impromptu jam session with legendary artists, players and writers.

Matrimoney

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

It’s said that a great band is like a gang or perhaps a family, united by music, sweat, passion, and blood. That is certainly the case with Matrimony, an exhilarating new band whose interpersonal connections run far deeper than your average combo. Fronted by the husband and wife duo of Ashlee Hardee Brown and Jimmy Brown, the Charlotte, North Carolina-based band are accompanied by Hardee Brown’s talented brothers, Jordan and CJ, resulting in an intuitive collaboration that is both immediately affective and utterly their own. “MONTIBELLO DRIVE,” the band’s eagerly anticipated debut album, takes its title from the Hardee family abode, a bucolic homestead where multiple generations of friends and family all sang and played together. Fraught with collaborative chemistry and determined artlessness, songs like “Last Love” and “Obey Your Guns” ring out with Matrimony’s astonishing communal spirit, their tight harmonies and intuitive musical telepathy born of true love and a shared lifetime.

ASCAP Presents: Jeffrey James & JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound with Daphne Willis and Aubrie Sellers (Sponsored by the Nashville Scene)

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

JEFFERY JAMES

Jeffrey James sings a lot like he talks–a little bit lower and more robust than you'd expect. From stage to studio, his soulful melodies and upbeat delivery invite you to move with the rhythm and hum with the hooks. On stage, energy and excitement come standard with a well-dressed six-piece band that sings and dances alongside Jeffrey. 

JC BROOKS & THE UPTOWN SOUND BIO

In a 1970 Playboy Interview, Ray Charles described soul as “people who do things from the heart.” In performance and on record, it is undeniable that JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound are 100% soul and are fond of getting crowds twisting and writhing on the floor, something that’s been sorely missing from live music.

JCBUS maintains the work ethic of never just "giving a concert" but putting on a SHOW, extravaganzas packed with theatricality, tons of heart and buckets of sweat.

Drew Davis, Carly Pearce and more!

Presented by The Listening Room Cafe at The Listening Room Cafe

Drew Davis is based in Austin, TX and identifies herself as an Austin musician. Currently, however, Drew is embarking on a five-month national tour. See her events page to see where she is headed next. Because Drew is still so young, it’s hard to say the direction her music will take in the future. What is not hard to predict, however, is the success and recognition her music is sure to achieve if placed into the right hands. Drew Davis and friends perform at 6:00pm.

Born to the bluegrass sounds of Kentucky in the land that Keith Whitley, Bill Monroe, and the Judds hail from. She's been on stage more in her 23 years than most artists twice her age. A tone that's unforgettable, a delivery as pure as it is believable. A voice made for millions. Carly Pearce is something from country music's past with a future as bright as Opry lights. Carly Pearce and friends take the stage at 8:30pm.

Real/Surreal

Presented by Frist Center for the Visual Arts at Frist Center for the Visual Arts

A survey of works from the 1920s to 1960s drawn from the collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art, Real/Surreal looks at the way in which many American artists represented reality as a subjective and malleable state of mind rather than a fixed truth. Influenced by European Surrealists of the 1920s like Salvador Dalí and René Magritte, some American artists used the tools of illusionistic representation to subvert reality entirely, while others subtly tweaked the conventions of realism, turning the familiar into something unsettling and uncanny. The exhibition includes works by Andrew Wyeth, Edward Hopper, Grant Wood, Man Ray and Thomas Hart Benton, among others.

Real/Surreal is organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

La Bohème

Presented by Nashville Opera Association at TPAC - Andrew Jackson Hall

On Christmas Eve in Paris, Roldofo, a young, starving poet, falls in love with Mimi, a beautiful, young seamstress…and opera has never been the same.  Puccini’s La Bohème is, without a doubt, one of the most popular operas ever written.  With its thrilling, beautiful music and its mixture of high comedy and serious drama, the opera sweeps the viewer away into a world of young love, a world of romance, and ultimately, a world tinged with bittersweet longing.  WithLa Bohème, Puccini wonderfully captures just what it means to be young and alive, offering us a brilliant mixture of lightness or darkness, all set to some of the most romantic music ever written.

Sung in Italian with easy-to-read projected English supertitles.

Presented by Grand Ole Opry at Grand Ole Opry House

The Grand Ole Opry is the show that made country music famous. The Opry features a dynamic line-up of new stars, superstars, and legends of country music. Unlike a typical concert, the Opry presents eight or more artists on each show, giving the audience a sample of each artist's musical style. Only the Opry... there's nothing quite like it anywhere else!

Scheduled to perform tonight at the Opry are: Trace Adkins, Keb' Mo', Clare Bowen, Greg Bates and more to be added. 

Schedule Changes: The lineup for each Grand Ole Opry show is not completely finished until just a few days before the show. Artists are posted to the Opry website as soon as appearances are confirmed (artists and schedule subject to change).

On October 11th, Venerable Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche, an accomplished Tibetan Meditation Master and Buddhist scholar, will give a public talk and teaching on how individuals can generate peace for themselves, their families and the world.

Having taught worldwide, Rinpoche is among the most qualified teachers and esteemed scholars of Tibetan Buddhism today. Rinpoche is fully versed in the Theravada, Mahayana, and Vajrayana Schools of Buddhism, and is considered a master of Dzogchen, the most advanced tradition of meditation practice in the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition. He has received many honors, appointments, including recognition from His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche, His Holiness the Dalai Lama as well as other significant Tibetan leaders.

In addition to Rinpoche’s talk, there will be an opportunity for attendees to light a candle for world peace that can be placed on a brilliantly colored seven by seven foot light mandala built specifically to draw attention to the need for everyone to participate in this collective wish. Attendees are encouraged to stay and meditate on the grassy knoll or circle the light mandala for the duration of the event. There will also be a silent auction (opens at 3 pm and closes at 6 pm) with proceeds from the sales dedicated to the building of a new meditation hall at the local Tibetan Buddhist Center in Berry Hill. The Center holds meditation meetings that are open to the public. Around 6:30 pm, Khenpo Rinpoche will perform closing prayers and dedication ceremonies.

Pop-Up Gallery Featuring Sculptor Lonnie Holley

Presented by Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art

Located inside L Gallery at 73 Arcade in downtown Nashville
The Art Crawl takes place on October 4, 2014, from 6 – 9 p.m.
Holley’s collaborative sculpture will remain on display October 6-11 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art will participate in Downtown Nashville’s October 4 Art Crawl with an exciting pop-up gallery featuring internationally known and self-taught artist Lonnie Holley. The temporary exhibition will feature a collaborative community sculpture created by Holley and students from Nashville School for the Arts.

Mr. Holley is best known for making art out of discarded material that he finds on his travels and in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. Defying the idea of waste and abandonment, he gives his found objects new life, incorporating metal, wood, plastic, Styrofoam and other “trash” as the primary material for his sculptural art. Holley plans to work with the NSA students to create a sculptural work utilizing old cell phones and other found materials to represent the “power of Nashville.”

Lonnie Holley has collaborated with young Nashvillians in the past, notably working with youth at the OASIS Center in early 2014 to create sculptures out of old bicycle parts. The project involved teachers as well, and was part of a curriculum workshop sponsored by the Ayres Institute for Teacher Learning & Innovation at Lipscomb University.

Holley’s most visible Nashville creation was officially unveiled in August 2014 when the artist returned to the city for the inauguration of the renovated Edmondson Park on Charlotte Avenue. Supported by an NEA Art Works grant, The Metro Nashville Arts Commission commissioned Holley and another artist, Thornton Dial, to create public sculptures for the park. Holley’s Supported by the Ancestors, a monumental sculpture made from steel and stone, as well as Dial’s Road to the Mountaintop are now permanently installed in the Park.

Cheekwood’s Pop-Up Gallery exhibition coincides with its William Edmondson and Friends: Breaking the Mold exhibition opening in the Museum of Art on September 27. Though Holley was born in 1950, the year before Edmondson died, his art career parallels Edmonson’s: both self-taught artists got their start carving tombstones, and both are characterized by their spiritual urge to create. Holley is represented in the William Edmondson and Friends exhibition with a metal and wood mixed-media dog sculpture that echoes Edmondson’s larger animal works.

Smithfield and Friends; Stephen Salyers

Presented by The Listening Room Cafe at The Listening Room Cafe

Trey and Jennifer started pursuing a dream as big as their home state of Texas back in 2011. Having grown up around each other, and both being involved in music all their lives, it was a natural thing when they got together and decided to be a country duo. After playing shows in Dallas, Texas for a while, they soon realized that their path was leading them to Nashville. Smithfield moved to Music City in the summer of 2012, and began writing and playing in a feverish attempt to attract some attention. A “ten year town” was a hard concept for Trey and Jen to grasp, and it pushed them to work harder every day. Exactly 12 months after they moved, all of their hard work paid off when they signed their first contract with Bigger Picture.

Country duos are a unique breed in the music industry. Two voices have to blend perfectly, and that combination is often hard to find, even in two great singers. Trey came from a heavily rock influenced musical background, however his southern roots, and passion for music made the transition to country music effortless. Jennifer, having sung in many competitions and Texas Oprys starting at a very young age, grew up listening to country music greats such as Leann Rimes and Faith Hill. For her, there was nothing she wanted more than to sing country music. Unlike many duos that are put together by labels and managers, Smithfield was an obvious choice for Trey and Jen from the start. With their spot-on harmonies, infectious stage presence, and natural chemistry, they stand out as one of country music’s true vocal duos. Smithfield and Friends perform at 6:00pm. 

Stephen Salyers takes the stage at 8:30pm. From the moment you hear the voice, you know it: powerful and distinct, soulful and passionate, a voice that could belong to no one else. Stephen Salyers was born on January 24, 1983 in the small town of Catlettsburg, Kentucky, which sits directly on the US 23 Country Music Highway. Salyers began performing at the young age of 12, playing the fair & festival circuit, civic league events and talent competitions. He is a past winner of the West Virginia State Colgate Country Showdown and has opened for elite artists like Ronnie Milsap, The Doobie Brothers and Wynonna. The singer/songwriter moved to Nashville, Tennessee in January 2005 and landed a spot in the cast of Tanya Tucker’s TLC series “Tuckerville” in August 2005. As a songwriter and entertainer, his ability to stretch out musically, and connect with his audience continues. Stephen has performed for Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear’s Inaugural Ball, the Cincinnati Reds and entertained the US Army Rangers Mountain Ranger Open House in Dahlonega, Georgia. The US Army Reserve tapped Salyers from a list of 40 candidates to serve as an Honorary member of the Golden Knights. He joined the the Golden Knights Parachute Team in May 2009 for his skydive at Fort Knox, Kentucky. As a philanthropist, Salyers remains devoted to giving back to a number of charitable organizations including: Stephen Salyers Charities Foundation, CASA, River Cities Food Harvest Drive, Ronald McDonald House, Muscular Dystrophy Aossciation and Musicians On Call. Through his charitable endeavors,Salyers has raised more than $250,000 and has been honored as a Hometown VIP by The Independent newspaper; a Kentucky Admiral by past Governor of Kentucky, Paul Patton; the Key to the City of Ashland, Kentucky by past Mayor, Steve Gilmore and with a special citation presented by the Kentucky State House of Representatives. Stephen’s achievements and his commitment to stretch his artistic boundaries will continue to shine with the support of his fans and the music industry. Stephen will appear in the “LISTEN UP!” section of Country Weekly Magazine, out November 2009. Music Videos / Commercials “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off”, Joe Nichols, Universal South Records “Proud Of The House We Built”, Brooks & Dunn, Sony BMG “Good Time”, Alan Jackson, Arista Nashville “Why Don’t We Just Dance”, Josh Turner, Universal (Promo Video) 2008-09 Country Music Hall of Fame, Tennessee Dept. of Tourism Campaign Television / Film “Tuckerville”, The Learning Channel (August 2005) “Hannah Montana, The Movie” (May 2009).

Home Free - Crazy Life Tour

Presented by Tennessee Performing Arts Center, TPAC at TPAC - James K. Polk Theater

When country a cappella band Home Free was crowned Season 4 Champions of NBC's The Sing-Off this past December, their victory was by no means the beginnings of a career for the five country stars from Minnesota… rather it was a satisfying culmination of nearly a decade of hard work and commitment to a vocal craft growing in popularity.

Founded by brothers Chris and Adam Rupp during their college years in the early 2000s, Home Free had been perfecting their live show for years prior to The Sing-Off--performing together for crowds in countless State and County Fairs, on college campuses, in front of Fortune 500 companies, and in theaters all across the country. It was their experience on the road that carried them to a Sing-Off victory, swelling their fan base and bringing their homegrown country style into a national spotlight.

Home Free continues to entertain audiences nationwide with their high-energy show peppered with quick-witted humor that meshes Nashville standards with pop hits dipped in country flavor.  They arrive to town on the heals of their debut release on Columbia Records Crazy Life.

Music With A Mission

Presented by Nashville Rescue Mission at Schermerhorn Symphony Center

Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers, Steve and Rudy, along with the GRAMMY® award-winning Nashville Symphony, will host this year’s “Music With A Mission” on Sunday, October 12, 2014, at 7 p.m. at the beautiful Schermerhorn Symphony Center. This annual event benefits and raises awareness for Nashville Rescue Mission, which serves more than 2,000 meals per day to the hungry and homeless in the Nashville community. Larry Gatlin explains, "As a recovering alcoholic, the men and women at the Mission mean a lot to me. One of my heart's desires is to help them on their journey. I believe the 'Music With A Mission' concert is going to do just that…On second thought, they will be helping this old alcoholic on my journey. KEEP THE FAITH." Restless Heart hosted the first “Music With A Mission” concert in 2010. This talented group of musicians continued to grow the event with their support and energy for the next two years. Glenn Cranfield, Nashville Rescue Mission president and chief executive officer, says, "We will be ever grateful for their dedication to making this event such a success.” In addition to the Gatlins, scheduled performers include country-recording artist Tracy Lawrence; Lynda Carter, singer, film and television star, who played the role of "Wonder Woman"; the Beegie Adair Trio, highly regarded jazz-recording musicians; Chip Esten, comedian, actor and singer, known for his role as "Deacon" in ABC's hit drama, "Nashville"; The Henningsens, a family trio of musicians and songwriters; The Willis Clan, of ABC's "America's Got Talent" fame, a family of musicians, dancers, athletes, writers and artists; and Jesse Lee Jones, owner of Robert’s Western World and the leader of its house band, Brazilbilly. “Nashville Rescue Mission and the men, women and children who benefit from our programs and services are grateful to receive such tremendous support from Nashville’s entertainment community,” states Cranfield. “Last year's event raised over $200,000, and we are sure to top that amount with this year's event. The Mission offers so much more than just a meal to those in need. In order for hearts to be open to change, we must first meet the physical needs of the people we serve. It is in meeting their most basic needs we give them hope for today. But it doesn’t stop there. As individuals see and experience increased opportunities, relational support, improved situations and genuine joy, hope begins to take root. Through the Mission’s Life Recovery Program, educational classes, job training and counseling, students find there is hope for tomorrow." He concludes, "Finally, we offer everyone who enters our doors hope for eternity. As hope is restored and relationships are mended, we seek to show the everlasting benefits of a life lived in service to the One who restores and renews. We are so thankful to everyone who plays a role in helping us meet the needs of those coming to us for help." Jim Gray will conduct the Nashville Symphony, and Nashville Rescue Mission's very own choir will also share their musical talents on stage. WSMV-TV anchor Demetria Kalodimos will act as master of ceremony. Wendell Sanders and The Fowler Group of Raymond James are Presenting Sponsors. All of the “Music With A Mission” performers are donating their time and talent to the event, with proceeds benefiting Nashville Rescue Mission. The Schermerhorn Symphony Center is located at One Symphony Place, Nashville, TN 37201. Tickets for this benefit are now on sale, with general admission seating at $35.00 and $50.00, and box seats at $125.00 each.

Not From Here - Zach Searcy

Presented by The Red Arrow Gallery at The Red Arrow Gallery

Iconic, Neo-Dadaist artist Robert Rauschenberg said that he wanted to work "in the gap between art and life". Zach Searcy works between the gaps of “dark, light, loose, and tight”. The Knoxville based artist will open his solo exhibition ‘Not From Here’ at The Red Arrow Gallery on September 20, 2014 through October 12, 2014.

‘Not from Here’ is Zach’s take on the human condition in a different world that transcends gender & race, sexual orientation, culture & class. Seracy believes we are all roaming our own planet and the journey is a dance.

His work is digital and handmade. His process splits the difference between a modern day cave painting and Paleolithic Photoshop. Zach makes intentional effort to create a push and pull effect for the viewer with several layers of paint and image transfer built up. No glue and no paper. Everything transferred by hand. Searcy does not think of himself a painter, he thinks of paint more in terms of color that doesn't require standard tools, using even the closest sock to help move the paint around. Things shift up, down, left, right, backwards and forwards, and ‘Not from Here’ finds order within the chaos.

Zach Searcy has shown in various locations and his work adorns the collections of many from his home of Knoxville, TN. This is his first show in Nashville and with The Red Arrow Gallery.

Whitechapel with Upon A Burning Body, Glass Cloud, and The Human Condition

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Having spent several years lauded as one of the frontrunners in their genre, in 2012 Whitechapel stand as a defining force in contemporary heavy music. Building dramatically on the trademarked bludgeon of their first three releases, with Whitechapel the Tennessean sextet have inarguably delivered their most intense, dynamic, and downright hostile record to date. Drenched in atmospheric darkness, the record is also rife with gripping melodies that drag the listener in to the tumult, willing or otherwise, and across its ten tracks it is infused with an emotional depth that pointedly separates the band from the plethora of two-dimensional mosh-starters that have sprung up in their wake. “These songs are some of the best material we have released to date, and the whole vibe of the record compelled us to self-title it,” states guitarist Alex Wade. “With every record we strive for something different – we’re always going to stay true to what Whitechapel is, but we want to evolve and do something that is fresh and engaging both for ourselves and for the people who support us.”

War on Drugs with Peter Matthew Bauer (of The Walkmen)

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

 Philadelphia’s The War on Drugs reside at the blurred edges of American music: overexposing studio limitations, piling tape upon tape to maximum density, and then — with each song — they pull off the scaffolding to reveal what sticks, keeping only what’s absolutely necessary and dig into what sounds the best. As on their 2008 debut, Wagonwheel Blues, central member Adam Granduciel takes small moments occurring over multiple tapes and multiple song versions, and puts every last drop of trust in his own keen instinct of momentum.

Dr. Ralph Stanley and The Clinch Mountain Boys

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Ralph Stanley’s voice is not of this century.  Nor of the last one, for that matter. Its stark emotional urgency is rooted in a darker time, when pain was the common coin of life and the world offered sinful humanity no hope of refuge.  Preserved in the cultural amber of remote Appalachia, this terse, forlorn sound is the bedrock of Stanley’s inimitable style.  But don’t mistake an ancient voice for ancient ways.  Stanley tours and performs with the vigor and elan of a rock star.

Lia Ices

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

"Ices" is a celebration of flight, levity, and the conviction that you can leave earth. You take wing in an airplane, you go to real places when you dream, you have out-of-body experiences, you get high, you lose yourself in someone else. 

When we started work on these songs, I was beginning a gradual move to California, constantly traveling back and forth from New York. I was experimenting. I was falling in love. Our studio in the Hudson Valley was full of electronics and computers and the sounds of future ships sailing throughthe vastness of space, and I sometimes forgot where I was. The first songs we wrote were called "flying 1", then "flying 2", and so on, which eventually evolved into songs on the album. Flight became a metaphor for the ignition of the imagination. The process created a lightness in me, a freedom and positiveenergy that I'd never before felt or explored.

This recording session became a two year music and spiritual retreat with my psychic twin brother, Eliot. A private journey during which we abandoned old habits and familiar sounds. We got really geeky and experimented in our studio. We obsessed over sympathetic magic, "Ancient Aliens", and the NBA. We allowed everything we loved to find its way in: Persian percussion, hip-hop beats, lo-fi, hi-fi, Pakistani pop, Link Wray, Jason Pierce, gospel, dub. We developed new systems; we worked with synthesis, software, and samples; webecame producers. The Hudson Valley was home base, but I wanted to keep flying. I wrote songs in California, recorded vocals in Atlanta, and worked with Clams Casino in Brooklyn.For the first time, Lia Ices felt like an inclusive project with its own identity, not just a name. 

 "Ices" as a whole is devoted to these certainties. While we have evolved, we are still animals. We respond to planets, patterns, and cycles. We require the sounds of our origins. We live in the future but stay bound to the primitive and primordial. We will always want tribe, we will always want rhythm, we willalways need music to guide us into our deepest sense of what it means to be human. So we hear sounds from all over the planet in this album. We devour so much music, and with this album we allowed ourselves to claim bits from all of it.

Reuben and the Dark

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Reuben Bullock is a storyteller. One of those undeniably engaging types that captivates with ease thanks to incredible charms and fascinating past.

Sit with him and you’ll hear tales of his upbringing, growing up the son of a preacher and middle brother of three. He’ll relate a childhood spent travelling North America, from town to town, never staying in one piece for long and learning about life on the road – a lesson that now serves him well.

He will tell you about rebelling against religion and a lingering distaste for those teachings, he and his oldest brother spurning the spiritual world for a wilder one which he considers himself lucky to have survived. The trials and brushes with mortality that have set the stage for Reuben’s current struggle – one more artistic than physical or strictly spiritual.

Now inked to Canada’s iconic indie imprint Arts & Crafts, Reuben finds himself on a promising new path, this time as a young songwriter and star with a world-class album on the way.

The names of studio titans like Stephen Kozmeniuk and Jim Abbiss – men who boast credits from artists like Madonna and Adele – dot the liner notes of Reuben’s forthcoming debut, but not long ago music was actually a new craft for Reuben. He’ll tell you he picked up a guitar for the first time at 21.

The forthcoming debut marks the first proper effort from this now fully realized incarnation of Reuben and the Dark – and on it you’ll experience his storytelling first hand. You’ll follow him around the world through some of the towns where it all began and into many new ones where it will not doubt continue.

DAN + SHAY: Where It All Began Tour

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Warner Music Nashville’s new duo Dan + Shay (Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney) are currently in the studio recording their debut album in Nashville, TN, and set to release their first single to Country radio, “19 You + Me”, in October. The album, which is expected to be released in 2014, is being co-produced by Dan, Shay and Scott Hendricks.

Dan and Shay met in December of 2012 and quickly hit it off with their musical similarities. The two began writing together and with their very first cut gained attention of country superstars Rascal Flatts who immediately put the track on hold for their album. From those first writing sessions, their relationship grew to include performing together, where the two discovered an infectious original sound all their own, mixing country rock/pop seamlessly throughout intimate power-ballads and stadium-worthy hits.

Born and raised in Natural Dam, AK, Shay has been singing since he was a young child. At 14-years-old he fell in love with songwriting and at 16 began learning the guitar. He officially moved to Nashville last year but grew up frequently visiting and recording in Music City. Musical influences include Rascal Flatts, Dave Matthews Band, Usher and Kenny Chesney.

Dan was born and raised in suburban Wexford, Pennsylvania and has been writing and playing music since the age of 12. A Nashville resident since 2010, Dan has been on the local songwriting scene writing with people like Blair Daly, Cary Barlowe and Jason Reeves among others. Musical influences range from Ryan Adams and Tom Petty to Kenny Chesney and Alison Krauss.

Electric Six with The Soft White Sixties

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

The wild horse. We romanticize this magnificent creature and rightly so. We marvel at the horse that dares to run free through mountain streams and mountain shit, forging his own path, blazing his own trails. We marvel at his dangerously high sperm count and his ability to mount and fuck. We know he spends his downtime whinnying in delight that he is never going to spend his life partially encased in leather, serving no other function than to trot slowly with his head hanging down miserably alongside other poor souls just like him as they carry a field trip of fourth graders from the suburbs who crack themselves up whenever he sports an uncontrollable erection. The wild horse…gets hard whenever he wants. And nobody laughs. And he loves that about himself.

17th Annual Concert for Cumberland Heights featuring Josh Turner and Striking Matches

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

MCA Nashville’s Josh Turner and Country duo Striking Matches will take the stage at the historic Ryman Auditorium for the 17th annual Concert for Cumberland Heights. This fundraiser supports the private, nonprofit alcohol and drug addiction center Cumberland Heights’ John Hiatt Fund for adolescent and young adult treatment.

Since Hiatt began the benefit in 1996, nearly $2 million has been raised to support adolescents and young adults, ages 14-24 and their families through the substance abuse recovery process.

“I’m looking forward to playing for Cumberland Heights to help them raise money so they can continue the great work that they do,” said Turner. “Alcohol and drug abuse is damaging to the person experiencing it but it’s also detrimental to their family and friends.”

An online auction will take place July 18-Aug. 1 featuring specialty tickets for the show and an autographed copy of Turner’s latest book "Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family, and Fatherhood."

All proceeds from the concert go directly to the John Hiatt Fund.

Marketa Irglová & Rosi Golan

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

These are the first lines of 'Point Of Creation', the opening track on Marketa Irglova's second solo album. Entitled Muna ('remember' in Icelandic, a recurring theme throughout the eleven songs), the collection was written and recorded in Iceland, the Czech singer-songwriter's new base of operations.

Muna is an album that takes the Oscar-winning singer's music further into the realm of the ethereal. If her debut Anar explored the dynamic of intimate personal relationships, the new record is a document of spiritual searching. Written over the course of a year, and recorded in six months with producer/engineer Sturla Mio Thorisson, it utilises full choral, string and percussion sections, plus guests Rob Bochnik (The Frames), Iranian daf player and vocalist Aida Shahghasemi, and Marketa's own sister Zuzi on backing vocals. All told, the album's cast-list runs to some 27 players.

Overall, Muna's musical and lyrical themes take solace from the smallness of individual concerns when contrasted with the scale of the universe. It is the result, Marketa says, of a process of growing up, of “going through difficult times and getting lost and feeling left alone to find my way back. Turning to something – or someone – bigger than me to make some sense of things that did not make sense at all. Feeling encouraged to zoom out and widen the lens through which I look at the world – from personal to worldwide to eventually universal. It is much easier to feel victimized when living in the micro-cosmos of our personal dramas. But once we open our minds to the macro-cosmos that we are part of, the issues that seemed so big start to seem small, and that is the beginning of us rising above them and changing our lives for the better.”

SEED SOCIAL + SEED PERFORMS Art and Place: Defining Arts Community

Presented by Seed Space at Seed Space

As part of their month-long social practice project "By the Steeple Bell Rope," Scott Zieher and Mike Womack will present a projection piece related to their research and work in the Wedgewood Houston community. Their project highlights the plight of the creative class in the local neighborhood and other regional situations of gentrification and civic shift.

U. S. Cities Contemporary Art Rankings: A New Hierarchical Approach (Nashville edition) by Andy Sturdevant, September 6, 7:00pm-9:00pm  Sturdevant will perform an interactive seminar on placing U.S. cities in a tiered ranking system by their relation to the contemporary art world. Visitors will be asked to give their input, providing results that are heavily influenced by their own experiences and personal prejudices. Located in that gray area between satire and earnest inquiry, the project draws on its audience's collective knowledge and investment in their own individual regional identities, as well as demonstrating the inherent limitations in reducing complex cultural and sociological factors into easily digestible charts, maps, and lists.

SEED ART + TECHNOLOGY LAB "F.I.V.E." and "F.E.A.R.S." examine how artists sensually interpret their surroundings.
F.I.V.E. FEELINGS INTERNATIONAL VIDEOART EXPERIENCE

F.I.V.E. is the new international video art project created by Magmart. Sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch. Through these five senses we interact with the world - and with other people. These senses are our interface. Like for Magmart's previous project, 100×100=900 Videoartists to Tell a Century, the goal is the same: to look, with the gaze of videoartists, onto mankind. And if for 100×100=900 the subject was the human history of the 1900s, F.I.V.E. focuses on the senses, on how we relate with those outside one's self. Senses are the medium between the world and us, are the instruments of feeling. They channel to us all the information that comes from the universe; they supply, even literally, the food for our body and for our mind.

F.E.A.R.S. Finally Everything as Remembered Simultaneously by Carol Cole September 6 - October 15

Interested in art history and the art making process, Carol Cole's mixed media works examine the psychological aspect of creating imagery as a means to cope with and claim emotions (i.e. fear).

Bernhoft

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

While touring the world over the past few years -- and captivating crowds with his stunning looping power as a one-man-band act -- the Norwegian retro-soul singer/multi-instrumentalist, Bernhoft found his music taking on a whole new level of meaning. "On the last tour it was very strange for me to come from a country that's incredibly well-off and unaffected by the recession, and then perform in places where a whole generation is out of work and there's a real feeling of hopelessness," says Bernhoft. "I felt like I was trying to reach out and lift people's spirits, but at the same time I was always aware that I was very much in a separate place from them." On his new album "Islander," Bernhoft explores that disconnect by amping up his groove-laced soul elements with frenetic tension captured through deeper and richer sonic textures. His guitar riffs, piano chords, and lyrics on Islander, embrace both heartbreaking raw emotion of reality and soulful positivity. Escapist yet challenging, "Islander" emerges as an album that dares to reimagine what's possible in pop music. 

To record the follow-up to his critically-lauded sophomore album, "Solidarity Breaks," Bernhoft took to another island locale; England's Isle of Wight, home to the legendary music festival of the same name. "Isle of Wight is just a magical place, almost like a time machine that brings you back about 30 years," says the singer, noting that the island's distance from electronic-centric London culture helped to foster "Islander"'s warm, organic feel. Working at Chale Abbey Studios (a vintage-equipment-packed facility converted from a former monastery), Bernhoft teamed up with producer Paul Butler -- a member of beloved alt-rock band The Bees whose past production work includes releases by Michael Kiwanuka and Devendra Banhart.

Paul McCartney (POSTPONED)

Presented by Bridgestone Arena at Bridgestone Arena

The June 25 Paul McCartney tour date at Bridgestone Arena has been rescheduled. The show is now scheduled for October 16, 2014. All tickets for the show will be honored on the new date.

The McCartney live experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity; in just three hours some of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music are relived; music which for many has shaped the very soundtrack of their lives. The last decade has seen Paul and his band perform in a staggeringly impressive range of venues and locations, including outside the Coliseum in Rome, in Moscow's Red Square, Buckingham Palace, at the White House, a free show in Mexico to over 400,000 people, and even broadcast live into Space! Featuring Paul's band of the last 10+ years--Paul "Wix" Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums)--the show never disappoints.

The tour also uses state of the art technology and production to ensure the entire audience has the best possible experience. With massive screens, lasers, fireworks, unique video content and, of course, the best songs in the world, a Paul McCartney show is so much more than just an ordinary concert. Paul's shows attract a multi- generational audience from different backgrounds all brought together by his music.

Nahko and Medicine for the People

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Oregon-­-born Nahko was born from strife and intermingling identities; his origins are a mix of Apache, Puerto Rican and Filipino cultures. His grandmother forced his mother into prostitution at age 14 and his life began in an act of violence. In the song on the new album, Dark As Night, by his group Medicine for the People, he sings, “So thankful, I never thought I’d give thanks for rape/but that’s how I got here today.” That line, filled with a poignant sense of acceptance and forgiveness, equally exemplifies this musician’s power and grace.

At nine months of age, Nahko was adopted by a white American family who raised him as a conservative Christian and introduced him to the world of music. As a child Nahko was given classical piano lessons and learned to sing in church. He then went on to teach himself how to play guitar and became a piano teacher as a teenager. Questions always lingered about his cultural identity and his past, urging Nahko to set out on his own in hopes of discovery.

Shakey Graves

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Recently described as an “antifolk phenomenon” by NPR Music, Alejandro Rose-Garcia (aka Shakey Graves) is one of those rare artists whose music, after one listen, inspires the kind of obsessive devotion that compels someone to spend hours searching for more. Fans eagerly wait for the next track to surface online, erratically released from his closely-guarded collection of unheard bedroom recordings and live rarities.

But as word of his haunting, at times bizarre, lo-fi recordings and contrastingly explosive live shows continues to spread, Shakey Graves is quickly rising from obscurity into the national spotlight. His debut full-length LP Roll the Bones consistently remains near the top of Bandcamp’s digital “best-seller” charts more than two years after its release, relying on little more than word of mouth for promotion. New listeners around the world discover his music every day, often through a series of stunning live performance videos on YouTube, which have collectively racked up well over half a million hits.

Following recent breakout performances at CMJ and SXSW, critics are starting to catch on, too. With a live performance style that The New York Times recently described as making the “one-man band approach look effortless,” Shakey stomps out rhythms on a handmade kickdrum built from an old suitcase, laying the foundation for “precise fingerpicking and raw, whiskey-soaked vocals” (Consequence of Sound).

In his hometown of Austin, TX, Shakey’s shows are the stuff of legend. Recently featured on the cover of Austin Monthly Magazine, the Mayor has even given him his own local holiday. February 9th is officially proclaimed “Shakey Graves Day” in Austin.

Shakey Graves has a huge year ahead of him, including nationwide tour dates, festival bookings and an upcoming live album release. He’s also putting the finishing touches on his sophomore studio album, with a release date TBA.

Franklin Wine Festival Tuscan Sun Wines & Angelo's Bistro Vintner's Dinner

Presented by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee at Angelo's Bistro

It’s fall… and you need a little getaway. How about a quick trip to Tuscany, where you don’t even need a passport?
The Franklin Wine Festival was presented with a last minute opportunity for a third Vintner’s Dinner for this year’s season… and we promptly replied “Si!”

Author Frances Mayes, who wrote “Under the Tuscan Sun” (that become a hit movie starring Dianne Lane), has been working alongside renowned Italian winemakers to create Tuscan Sun wines.

Ms. Mayes will be in Middle Tennessee this October introducing her wines to our region, as well as discussing her latest book, “Under Magnolia.” Guests at this very special wine dinner celebrating the many nuances of Tuscany will enjoy her personal insight that drives her passion for this area. Think of it as a “family” evening around that farmhouse table in the (finally) restored villa of the movie.

MENU

Caesar Salad - house made Caesar salad and dressing with hand cut fresh romaine and croutons
Paired with Frances Mayes's Tuscan Sun "Pensiero" Pinot Grigio

Stone - baked baguette with house made herb topping, assorted cheeses and olives
Paired with the Frances Mayes's Tuscan Sun "Auguri" Sangiovese

Choice of : Shrimp Diavolo or Chicken Cattiatore over Angel Hair pasta
Paired with Frances Mayes's Tuscan Sun "Tondo Tondo" Sangioves

Italian Cannoli with traditional Cannoli cream and assorted pastries
Paired with Frances Mayes's Tuscan Sun "Permesso" Cabernet Sauvignon

Ms. Mayes will also be exhibiting Tuscan Sun wines at the Franklin Wine Festival on Friday, October 17 at the Factory at Franklin (www.FranklinWineFestival.com), as well as signing bottles at the presenting sponsor, Cool Springs Wines & Spirits on Saturday, October 18 where all wines featured at the festival are on sale for this one day only.

Boyce Avenue

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Boyce Avenue, a Florida-based band popular for its strong acoustic roots and melodic rock sound, consists of the three brothers Alejandro, Fabian, and Daniel Manzano. The brothers first came together as a band in 2004 when Alejandro (lead vocals, guitar, piano), Fabian (guitar, vocals), and their older brother Daniel (bass, percussion, vocals) reconnected after pursuing their respective educational goals. While music was always a part of their lives and ultimately their collective goal, pursuing a higher education was also important to the brothers. After graduating from Harvard Law School, Daniel moved back to Florida, to join his brothers Fabian and Alejandro, who were both attending classes at the University of Florida. It was there that the brothers continued to write music and to perform local shows, and took their most formative steps toward becoming a band.

In 2007, in an effort to share their music and ideas with the world, the band decided to start filming and posting videos on YouTube of their own songs and some of their favorite songs by other artists. Some of the first few videos they posted included acoustic versions of songs such as Justin Timberlake’s “LoveStoned”, Rihanna’s “Umbrella”, and Coldplay’s “Viva la Vida”, among many others. The videos resonated instantly with YouTube viewers. And to date, the band has over 300,000,000 views on YouTube and over 700,000 subscribers to their channel, making theirs one of the most frequented channels worldwide on YouTube. 

Early on, the band wanted to set itself apart from other acts that had achieved success online by taking its music straight to the people, live. Believing firmly in the strength of their online fans, and in its music, the band booked a stand-alone show in New York City in January of 2009, for their first ever performance in the city. Surprising label and industry folks alike, the show - perceived by others as a gamble - was an enormous sellout and success. Since then, the band has been steadily touring the world over with similar results. In early 2009, the band performed for an estimated total of 25,000 fans over four headline shows in the Philippines. And on the heels of its whirlwind success in the Philippines, the band launched headline tours in the USA, Canada, and Europe. In response to the staunch support of its fans, this Summer/Fall of 2011 sees the band playing headline shows in Indonesia, Australia, USA, Canada, and Europe, and playing in iconic rooms thoughout the world, such as The Fillmore in San Francisco, Webster Hall in New York, The Riviera Theatre in Chicago, The Sound Academy in Toronto, Shepherd's Bush in London, The Olympia Theatre in Dublin, and Live Music Hall in Cologne. 

During the band's early years, it assiduously recorded original music for it's full-length debut album, "All We Have Left," which will be re-released independently by the band this Fall, through its own label, 3 Peace Records. The lead out singles from the album include “Every Breath,” "On My Way," and "Broken Angel". The music video for "Every Breath," the first single off the abum was shot by acclaimed director Zach Merch (Blue October, Safetysuit) in Los Angeles, and was a collaborative effort that grew from a treatment written by the band. Because "All We Have Left" was entirely written, funded, and produced by the band, the band hopes it will serve as a strong statement to its supporters of who the band is at this point in their career, and who they want to be as artists and individuals.

The Del McCoury Band and Hot Rize

Presented by War Memorial Auditorium at War Memorial Auditorium

The Del McCoury Band is a bluegrass band. Originally Del McCoury and the Dixie Pals with Del on guitar and his brother Jerry on bass, the band went through a number of changes until the 1980s when the band solidified its line-up, adding McCoury’s sons, Ronnie and Rob on mandolin and banjo, respectively. In 1988, the “Dixie Pals” name was dropped in favor of the current name. The band became a national touring act. In 2004 they were nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album for It’s Just the Night, and in 2006 they won that category for The Company We Keep.

Hot Rize has marked over 30 years in the bluegrass history book. Following the untimely passing of guitarist Charles Sawtelle in 1999, the band reorganized in 2002 with Bryan Sutton on guitar and has continued to play several shows each year, delivering its high-energy, soulful, and unique sound to fans old and new. Though many years from its full-time touring period of 1978-1990, Hot Rize has kept its legend growing by delivering first-class music and entertainment as only it can.

"We've been on the road pretty much non-stop for the past four years playing as much as we can wherever we can," said Moore.  "When we started out sometimes there would only be five people at a show, and seeing the crowds grow over the years is really humbling and encouraging.  And now to be teaming up with CMT for a tour is a really exciting moment in my career.  We'll definitely be playing lots of songs from the new album out on the road so it will be fun to test those out and see what the fans think."

Sons Of Bill

Presented by The High Watt at The Basement


Bill Wilson is from Central Virginia. He is a professor of philosophical theology, a songwriter, an expert on southern literature, and a father of six.

His three eldest sons returned to Virginia to start a rock band in 2006 with long-time musical compadres Seth Green and Todd Wellons. As a tribute to the man who taught them how to play guitar, write songs, drive a stick-shift, and back up a trailer, the band decided to name themselves Sons of Bill.

In the summer of 2011 Sons of Bill entered Sound of Music Studios in Richmond VA, with producer David Lowery (Cracker, Camper Van Beethoven) to record their latest record "SIRENS." The band describes this record as a musical arrival point, and will be released on March 26th 2012.

Sandra Bernhard

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Since she first stepped on stage at the Comedy Store in the ‘70s, Sandra Bernhard has been challenging fans and critics with her outrageous humor, keen satire and rollicking stage shows. “Give the dame her due,” writes the New York Times, “It’s invigorating to be in the presence of a true original.”

Bernhard, who writes and develops all of her own material, has produced numerous one-woman shows over the years, among them: Without You I’m Nothing—which was released as a feature film—Excuses for Bad Behavior, Giving ‘Til It Hurts, Hero Worship, the Love Machine, and Everything Bad and Beautiful. Currently on tour with  her latest creation, I Love Being Me, Don’t You?, Sandra is a performer of stunning originality. “Funny but foxy, super smart and slightly mad!” proclaimed WCBS. “Bernhard is a very funny woman by nature, a rocker by sheer determination and an actress you’ve seen in eclectic offerings,” says the Washington Post.

“...it’s this combination of glamour and accessibility that accounts for Bernhard’s enduring appeal. .. the experience is like hanging out with a hip and funny friend who never fails to lift you up with her outrageous freedom.” – L.A. Times

If there’s one thing you can say about Kandi Burruss it’s that she is a certified hustler! The ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star is always on to the next endeavor and now her next one will be taking her on the road. The entrepreneur is taking her hit musical ‘A Mothers Love’ out on tour and visiting the Nashville Municipal Auditorium on October 17, 2014 at 8:00 p.m.  Tickets ($42-$52) are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com, and at the NMA box office, Monday-Friday, 10:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Fans will remember the play sold out multiple dates during its initial run in Atlanta last November, as documented on RHOA.

“I’m so excited to officially announce the North American Tour Dates for my musical #AMothersLove!!!! I have been working hard on this & it’s a dream come true to be able to take #AML on tour! Please spread the word & get your tickets now on TicketMaster.com This is a show that you can bring the whole family too!!!” she shared on social media on Thursday.

A Mother's Love is a story that captures the roller-coaster relationship between a mother and daughter. It depicts how tough it can be for a mother to let go and allow her daughter to make her own decisions when it comes to love. The story chronicles the daughter's all-girl music group as they prepare for a life changing performance. Will the mother finally respect her daughter's wishes to make her own decisions? Will the daughter choose to love the DREAMER- a man with potential who loves her and is working towards his dreams, or the PROVIDER- a man who in the eyes of her mother has accomplished his dreams and arrived. Will the mother be successful in pushing her into the arms of another man? Torn between accepting the life her daughter wants and forcing the life she thinks her daughter should have, this is A Mother's Love.

OK Go

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

OK Go didn't find an audience until 2005, when the band began creating homemade music videos to support their combination of off-kilter guitars, Pixies/Cars fetishism, and straightforward power pop sensibilities. Recognizing the growing popularity of websites like YouTube, the group shot a campy dance video for "A Million Ways," a song from their sophomore album Oh No. It quickly became the most downloaded music video in history, and OK Go won a Grammy Award for their follow-up subsequent video -- this one featuring the bandmates dancing on treadmills -- while continuing to produce clever, melodic pop music.

 

Originally consisting of vocalist/guitarist Damian Kulash, guitarist Andrew Duncan, bassist Tim Nordwind, and drummer Dan Konopka, OK Go formed during the fall of 1998. Prior to Kulash's move from the East Coast to Chicago, the other three members of OK Go had played together in the Chicago-based band Stanley's Joyful Noise. Once formed, OK Go garnered considerable media attention in the Windy City without having recorded a single album, their success attributed partly to an exuberant live show and opening spots for heavyweights like Elliott Smith and the Promise Ring. They soon released a pair of three-song CD singles to tide fans over until a full-length could be completed, and also served as the de facto house band for a touring version of the NPR program This American Life. OK Go eventually signed with Capitol and issued an eponymous debut in September 2002, scoring a modest modern rock radio hit with "Get Over It."

Sons Of Bill

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

“This is a record that takes me back to some of the creative heights we achieved in Wilco,” says producer Ken Coomer about Sons of Bill’s latest LP Love and Logic, due out on Thirty Tigers September 30, 2014. “I’m only interested in making records that are still going to be relevant ten years from now, and this is one of them.  It’s unmistakably the real thing.”

This is an ambitious album for the three brothers Sam, Abe, and James Wilson, who share equal duty singing and writing throughout Love and Logic. The Virginia roots obviously run deep, with dreamy pedal steel, banjo, and three part harmonies that could have only been learned at church. But the record moves into enough layered pop productions and rock and roll bravado throughout to keep you guessing as to just who these boys are, and what they’ve been listening to.

It’s easy to say that Sons of Bill can sound more like Townes Van Zandt or early R.E.M. depending on the track, even moving into their own brand of down-home psychedelia thatAmerican Songwriter described as a “countrified Pink Floyd.”   But the real achievement ofLove and Logic is the songwriting, the Wilson brothers’ ability to craft literate and deeply introspective lyrics while still managing to deliver it all as a rock and roll band. It’s a soul-searcher’s soundtrack for an over-stimulated age.  A roots rock album that stands out in 2014.

Sons of Bill became more than Charlottesville’s best kept secret with the release of the SirensLP, a brash rock and roll record, which debuted on the Billboard top 200 and #12 on the Heatseekers chart in 2012.  The band toured extensively on both sides of the Atlantic for a year and a half and gained some notoriety for their fiery live performances and road dog work ethic.  But Love and Logic certainly marks a turning point for the band– a more sober, reflective, version of themselves– the sound of a band coming into its own.

Lightning 100 & Marathon Village present Blocktoberfest Fall Block Party

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

This past June, Seattle news and culture blog Seattlest.com posted a review of a show by Walk The Moon. It read like this: “Walk The Moon hit the stage with so much energy that the crowd immediately pushed forward and started dancing. It's refreshing to see a band that's having as much, or more, fun than the people there to see them. They took us back to the days of basement dance parties on hot summer nights, where everyone's just happy to be alive and among friends.”

That review pretty much sums up this young Cincinnati band’s mission statement: “We want our music to be the most fun thing you've ever listened to in your entire life,” says bassist Kevin Ray. “We want it to not just affect you emotionally, but also physically in that it makes you want to dance.”

Also performing: Self, repeat repeat, Boom Forest, Vinyl Thief, Scars on 45

Joan Osborne with special guest Ruston Kelly

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

While Osborne has already earned a reputation as both a commanding, passionate performer and a frank, emotionally evocative songwriter, her soulful songcraft reaches a new level of musical and lyrical resonance on Love and Hate. Such insightful, emotionally complex new compositions as “Where We Start,” “Work on Me,” “Kitten’s Got Claws,” “Keep It Underground” and the pointed title track survey some of the more complicated terrain of romantic relationships, in a manner that’s rarely been attempted in popular music, while the album’s intimate, stripped-down sound marks a stylistic departure from the gritty blues-based rock for which Osborne is best known.

Love and Hate is the product of an extended birth cycle that spanned no less than seven years – a period which Osborne released two other albums and worked on an assortment of other musical projects. She and co-producer/guitarist Jack Petruzzelli – with whom she also recorded 2012’s Bring It On Home, which was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Blues Album category – had initially intended to make a lush, pastoral album in the mold of Van Morrison’s Astral Weeks or Nick Drake’s Pink Moon. But as she continued to write songs for the project, Osborne found herself drawn towards more personal subject matter.

INTL

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

“Our ultimate goal is to speak to people’s hearts, capture a feeling and make it last forever in our songs.” says Kaleb Jones, lead vocalist of Nashville’s INTL. “When we experience that dialogue in ourselves and with our audience, it’s magic,” he adds.

Jones -- alongside Chase Gregory [lead guitar], David Deaton [bass], and Thomas Doeve [drums] -- strives to create music that is both personal and powerful. INTL, formerly The Young International, crafts songs that resonate with the listener, songs that are lyrically rich and hauntingly emotional.

Individually, INTL’s four members are incredibly talented, but collectively, their musicianship and influence is undeniable. Their ingenuity comes through in the distinct brand of rock they have carefully developed over the past few years. Though influenced by the likes of Radiohead and U2, INTL has cultivated a sound all their own, a sound that allows them to stand out in a city full of fellow creatives.

Most recently, INTL worked with producer Vance Powell [Jack White, Kings of Leon] to release the double single “More of the Same / Vampire” in the early spring of 2013. The quartet finds itself touring for much of this fall, in the midst of also writing and recording for an impending full-length album.

Be sure to keep an eye [and an ear] out for what magic INTL has in store.

Abstract and the Composer Collective

Presented by Cumberland Gallery at Cumberland Gallery

Historically, abstract works have referenced music through color, shape and form. Artists have made aesthetic choices based on the abstract sounds and notation of time in musical composition.

While the artists in Cumberland Gallery's latest exhibition, Abstract Works, develop varying concepts within their work; each have a certain lyrical expression that speaks to this connection to music. It was with this connection in mind that the collaboration between Cumberland Gallery and the Nashville Composer Collective took form.

A select group of Nashville composers have developed musical compositions based on specific artworks in the exhibition. Each composer will conduct musicians from Belmont, the Nashville Symphony, and Nashville's many recording studios as they play these

Brief discussions with the composers will follow each performance.

About the composers:

John Darnall is a tenured guitarist, composer and arranger whose credits span from Elvis Presley to Joni Mitchell. Awards include six gold records and participation in various Grammy-winning projects including arranging for the Blackwood Brothers' 1981 album.

Evan Cobb formed the Crime Jazz band Buddha’s Belly which was nominated as a finalist for Best New Entertainer in the Chicago Music Awards of 2005. Evan has worked with myriad ensembles including the Nashville Symphony, the Nashville Jazz Orchestra, The Dynamites featuring Charles Walker, JD Souther, and Aretha Franklin. Cobb heads the Nashville Jazz Workshop Summer Jazz Camp, and leads the monthly jam session at the Nashville Jazz Workshop.

Cole Dumas was born and raised in Macon GA before moving to Nashville where he obtained a Music Business degree from Belmont University. His many musical pursuits include singing, songwriting, piano, producing and DJing electronic dance music as well as film scoring.

Mark Volker is the Coordinator of Composition and Associate Professor of Music at the Belmont University School of Music, where he teaches applied composition and music theory, and directs the New Music Ensemble. Known for his colorful harmonic language and orchestration, as well as his facility with both electronic and traditional instrumentations, Mark’s music has been performed and recorded by numerous performers around the world, including the Chicago Contemporary Chamber Players, eighth blackbird, the Pacifica String Quartet, Musica moderna Poland, the New York New Music Ensemble, the Kiev Philharmonic, the Orchestra of the Finger Lakes, So Percussion, the Orquesta de Baja California, the Boston Brass, the Society for New Music, the Opera Company of New England, and the Nashville Ballet. Named 2012 Composer of the Year by the Tennessee Music Teachers Association, he has also received awards from ASCAP, Meet the Composer, SCI, and ERMmedia.  You can hear Mark’s music on his recently released Centaur Records CD, Elemental Forces, and on volume 3 of ERMmedia’s Masterworks of the New Era series.

Kyle J Baker is a Nashville-based composer best known for curating Nashville’s Soundcrawl Festival. He composes music for film scores and chamber ensembles and reviews contemporary art and music. Classical in heritage, but vernacular in vocabulary, his music has garnered such attention as the 2008 Belmont University Composition Prize, Honorable Mention in 2008 Pathways Composition Contest for Young Band, and distribution by Brassworks4.com.  Notable teachers include Ken Read, John LaBarbara, Delfeayo Marsalis, and William Pursell.

Michael Quintana’s compositional output consists of music for film, small ensemble concert music, and music for orchestra. His solo piano and chamber music has been performed at the Belvedere Festival in Memphis and he recently received the distinguished President’s award after composing the orchestral work, “Tunnel Vision”, which received its premiere in Belmont University’s Classical Performers concert.

About the artists:

Caio Fonseca, born and raised in New York City, now divides his time between Pietrasanta and his studio in Manhattan. His lyrical abstract paintings in which patches of color play across heavily worked surfaces have relied on the subtle tonal play of those hues—vivid oranges, reds, and yellows—are anchored on lush monochrome backgrounds. Foncesa’s works are held in numerous public and private collections in Europe and the United States. His works are included in The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.; The Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C. among many others.

Raphaëlle Goethals was born and raised in Brussels, Belgium coming to the United States in 1981. Goethals’ signature layered encaustic and pigment abstractions have established her as a unique and sophisticated painter. Her surfaces are expressive and minimal, rich and psychologically compelling. Her paintings are held in numerous public and private collections in the United States and abroad, including the Daum Museum of Contemporary Art, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, the New Mexico Museum of Fine Art, and the Boise Art Museum.

Robert Treat is a California artist whose work is exhibited and collected nationally. His process of abstract painting became a device for enormous sensual potential by reason of its simultaneous appeal to intimate touching and detached seeing. For him it is a way of recovery to the primary sense of self, a quality that tends to get repressed by today’s modernity in general and media-representation in particular. Along with his painting career, he has been involved in the Hollywood animation industry for over twenty years.

THE FANTASTICKS presented by The Renaissance Players

Presented by The Renaissance Players at Renaissance Center at Freed Hardeman University

THE FANTASTICKS is a funny and romantic musical that is perfect for the whole family, a most child-friendly show. It's lively, squeaky-clean and not too long, and anyone old enough to watch a love story is old enough to enjoy it. It tells the story of a young man and the girl next door, whose parents have built a wall to keep them apart. The youngsters nevertheless contrive to meet and fall in love. Their parents, meanwhile, are congratulating themselves, for they have erected the wall and staged a feud in order to encourage a marriage between their willfully disobedient children.

THE FANTASTICKS is the longest-running musical in the world, and with good reason: it is a fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time. The famous score, which includes the classics "Try To Remember", "They Were You" and "Soon It's Gonna Rain", is as timeless as the story itself.

Marilyn Fair (Director) had moved to NYC as a young professional actress when she had the pleasure of being cast as"Luisa" in the original NYC production of THE FANTASTICKS at The Sullivan Street Playhouse in Greenwich Village from December 12,1989 through August 15,1993. At that time, THE FANTASTICKS was already in the Guinness Book of World Records the Longest Running Musical in The World. Marilyn played approximately 1400 performances and worked closely with the authors Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt. She remained in the cast for the 30th Anniversary and the 13,000th performance.

Twenty years later, the show remains very dear to her heart and Marilyn is thrilled to be directing THE FANTASTICS for The Renaissance Players of Dickson, TN this fall. Working with the script again reminds Marilyn of the incredible genius of the writing and how much precision was put into every word, song and comedic gesture.

"What a privilege it is to have the chance to explore this work again. I hope to bring the Sullivan Street Production to Dickson keeping the authors' original intimate vision. An amazing goose bump moment for me was during the auditions for this production when my own son, Nick, auditioned to be The Boy. What a perfect moment it is for the both of us. I can't believe I get to work with him on this project that is so near and dear to my heart!"

Each and every audience member relates to the show in their own way. THE FANTASTICKS is about first love, parents not wanting to let go, parents trying to manipulate their children, idealistic kids wanting to see the world and quite sure it is better than what is in their own back yard. All presented with beautiful music, slight of hand, circus-like entertainers and simplistic sets that enable the viewers to become a part of the experience.

The audience becomes part of the show. Marilyn remembers: If there were latecomers to the show, we would stop everything and watch as the people took their seats. If someone sneezed, we would say "Bless You" and then continue our lines. The audience learned quickly that they were a very important part of the evening! There was a particular seat in the audience of the Sullivan Street Playhouse in NYC that the cast called it the "Hot Seat". If there was ever a time to look directly at someone in the eyes, 9 times out of 10, we would go for the person in the "Hot Seat". Around 1993, the building got freshened up with new carpeting and new theatre seats. When they took out the old seats, someone asked "Does anyone want the "Hot Seat"? Marilyn said "Yes!" and has it to this day. Rumor has it that very "Hot Seat" is onstage as part of The Renaissance Players production and each night some lucky audience member will be chosen to sit in it and help the actors continue this fun tradition.

Marilyn is thrilled to have this opportunity to work with her Renaissance Players family on this musical theatre classic and even more amazed and honored that she gets to work with her son, Nick, who is portraying The Boy. Her directing credits include the Renaissance Player's summer hit, THE LITTLE MERMAID Jr, GODSPELL, in Boca Raton, FL, THE GOOD DOCTOR at the Buckner Theatre, and THE FANTASTICKS at the Quincy Music Theatre in Florida. Marilyn has served as Assistant Director/Choreographer for Fairview Middle School's productions of ALADDIN, Jr, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, Jr, and CINDERELLA. Marilyn has worked for over 30 years in professional theaters throughout the east. Favorite roles include: Eliza Doolittle, MY FAIR LADY, Fiona, BRIGADOON, Meg, CRIMES OF THE HEART, Sheila, THE BOYS NEXT DOOR, and Fairlight in CHRISTY THE MUSICAL which originally brought her to Tennessee and which she portrayed for Cumberland Co. Playhouse, the Smoky Mountain Amphitheater in Townsend, TN and at the Acuff Theatre for Gaylord Enterprises.

Renaissance Player audiences will remember Marilyn's portrayal of Dolly Levi in HELLO DOLLY! for which she won a "Best Actress" Jimmy Award in 2011. Other roles include: The Baker's Wife in INTO THE WOODS, Mae Peterson in BYE, BYE BIRDIE, Widow Corney in OLIVER! and Miss Hannigan in ANNIE! Gaslight Dinner Theatre productions include: THE SPIT FIRE GRILL, 9-5 THE MUSICAL, THE CHURCH BASEMENT LADIES, OVER THE RIVER AND THROUGH THE WOODS, SMOKE ON THE MOUNTAIN HOMECOMING, MARRIED ALIVE!, STEEL MAGNOLIAS and DRIVING MISS DAISY.

Marilyn lives in Fairview with her singer/songwriter husband Joe Fair and their multi-talented son, Nick who will be seen on American Idol Season 14 this fall. She teaches piano and voice from her home and will be performing in the Gaslight Dinner Theatre’s Christmas production of TWO GUYS AND A CHRISTMAS TREE from November 20th through December 20th at The Renaissance Center in Dickson.

Bruce Hornsby

Presented by Nashville Symphony at Schermerhorn Symphony Center

Bruce Hornsby’s work displays a creative iconoclasm that’s been a constant in the artist’s two-and-a-half decade recording career. His commercial stock soared early on, when “The Way It Is” – the title track of his 1986 debut album – became one of the most popular songs on American radio. Despite his early mainstream successes, Hornsby has pursued a more personal, idiosyncratic musical path, focusing on projects that sparked his creative interest, including collaborations with the Grateful Dead, Spike Lee, Ricky Skaggs, Don Henley, Ornette Coleman, Bob Dylan, Bela Fleck, Bonnie Raitt, Pat Metheny and Robbie Robertson. Hornsby’s performance at the Schermerhorn will offer a glimpse of a restless spirit who continues to push forward into exciting new musical terrain.

Each concert ticket includes a copy of the brand-new 21-track double-live album Bruce Hornsby Solo Concerts.

VANCE JOY: 'Dream Your Life Away' Tour 2014 w/ Jaymes Young

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Vance Joy's debut EP "God Loves You When You're Dancing" worms its way under your skin. It's not an easy task to produce a record so evocative, yet so stripped-back; simplicity in art is often a challenging feat. For Melbourne-based singer and songwriter Vance Joy, the songs began as a collection of loose threads, which over time naturally weaved together, like they were always meant to find a life of their own. 

Like the unforced orchestration of his songs, Vance Joy's recent success developed organically. Earning his chops on Melbourne's open mic circuit, he tested out new material at venues like the iconic Great Britain Hotel in Richmond. Naturally, his music attracted fans, press and label interest. Before long, the musician played sold-out shows at The Worker's Club and The Toff in Town in Melbourne, and penned a deal with Liberation Music. He's since hit the national touring circuit with support slots for Of Monsters and Men and Julia Stone already this year. In March, Vance Joy embarks on his first international appearance at SXSW.

David Bazan + Passenger String Quartet

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

The seed for this album was planted during a one-off show back in 2012. Bazan was invited to play a show in Tacoma WA with the Passenger String Quartet. PSQ leader Andrew Joslyn put together string arrangements for 4 songs and it was an enjoyable evening for all. They immediately began talking about doing it again and eventually started talking about making proper studio recordings of these songs. But it took nearly two years for everyone’s schedules to line up again. In February 2014, they were able to spend a week at Avast! studio in Seattle tracking a collection of 10 songs pulled from Pedro The Lion, Headphones and Bazan solo albums. Long time friend and Bazan collaborator Chris Colbert recorded, mixed and mastered the album. Chris’s no nonsense approach and years of friendship helped focus the effort and they were able to record the entire album in just a few days.

With the release of the album they will be touring all across the USA in October and November playing in clubs, small theaters and cathedrals.

David Bazan was, for many years, the songwriter and driving force behind the acclaimed band Pedro the Lion, building a dedicated following and selling a couple hundred-thousand albums. After a decade helming the project, he found himself embroiled in a major personal philosophical and spiritual cataclysm, wrapped in a growing drinking problem. Bazan got to work exorcizing both his demons and angels, ditching the Pedro moniker in favor of his given name. He’s released the Fewer Moving Parts EP (2006) and two full-length albums, Curse Your Branches (2009), Strange Negotiations (2011) under his own name.

 

The Passenger String Quartet is an avant-garde, experimental neo-classical group, formed by Northwest composer/violinist Andrew Joslyn. The group is in high demand as studio session musicians, tours & performs original compositions, as well as backs a wide variety of regional, and national touring groups from DJ Spooky, Suzanne Vega, to Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Ivan and Alyosha, Kris Orlowski, Doug Martsche, and many more.

Chad Riden’s comedy is about his chaotic reality. A full time road comic since 2006, Riden’s last few years have featured bankruptcy, divorce, foreclosure and the best shows of his life. Chad has appeared on “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central, the Late Show with David Letterman’s “Tony Mendez Show”, ABC’s “Nashville,” and is featured on CMT-Canada’s upcoming “Mississippi Snake Grabbers.” Biding time until his “snake money starts rolling in” when he is “super duper MF’ing Canada Famous” – Riden continues to tour the nation using his smart-ass super powers for good, not evil. “Chad Riden – good guy. Been through a lot. His heart’s heavy. World’s weighing on Chad. Weighs heavy on Chad. He’s got a burden.. but he’s a funny guy. It makes him a funny guy. That burden makes him funny.” - Marc Maron, WTF episode 209 (September, 2011) & in Marc’s book “Attempting Normal.” Over the course of a weekend in February 2011, Doug Stanhope called Chad Riden “wicked funny” once, “fucking brilliant” twice, and “stupid” only one time. “His observations on the domestic sphere teeter amiably on the edge.” – The Nashville Scene

Of Eden

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

Of Eden is a new acoustic pop folk duo created by Air Supply's Graham Russell and singer-songwriter Katie McGhie. The two met at an awards gala in 2012 and their passion for music instantly sparked a conversation.

A few weeks later, Katie met up with Graham to lend her voice to a new project he was working on. He had asked her to sing some background vocals on a few songs, but by the end of the first day, they both knew there was something more there. That very night they were asked to do a show at a local pub and they eagerly accepted, even though they had never actually sung together before. The show was a hit and from that moment on, Of Eden was born.

With Graham's long history as a songwriter and Katie's background as a singer, the two have created a new sound using only their voices and a guitar. Their debut album 'Feel', released in November 2013, offers everything from beautiful pop ballads, gritty folk songs, and even a touch of rock and roll.

This past year, Of Eden wrote several songs for various movies and even a new musical. They are currently working on their second album and will be touring throughout several US cities during 2014.

Late Nite Catechism

Presented by Tennessee Performing Arts Center, TPAC at TPAC - James K. Polk Theater

Late Nite Catechism is an uproariously funny play that takes the audience back to their youth. The irrepressible Sister teaches class to a roomful of "students." Throughout the course of the class the benevolent instructor rewards the "students" for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and other nifty prizes. Naughty students may well find themselves on stage sitting in a corner reflecting their actions. However, even the most reluctant "students" will be clamoring to get into this Sister's class. Now in its 20th year, Late Nite Catechism has brought its nostalgic kick to every state in the U.S. as well as to Canada, the U.K., and Australia.

The Wod Brothers

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

From early in their childhood in Boulder, CO., Chris and Oliver were steeped in American roots music. Their father, a molecular biologist, would perform classic songs at campfires and family gatherings, while their mother, a poet, instilled a passion for storytelling and turn of phrase. The brothers bonded over bluesmen like Jimmy Reed and Lightnin’ Hopkins, but their paths, musical and otherwise, would diverge. Oliver moved to Atlanta, where he played guitar in cover bands before earning a spot in Tinsley Ellis’s touring act. At Ellis’s behest, Oliver began to sing and then founded King Johnson, a hard-touring group that would release six albums of blues-inflected R&B, funk and country over the next 12 years. Chris, meanwhile, studied jazz bass at the New England Conservatory of Music, moved to New York City and, in the early ‘90s, formed Medeski Martin & Wood, which over the next two decades would become a cornerstone of contemporary jazz and abstract music.

 After pursuing separate musical careers for some 15 years, the brothers performed together at a show in North Carolina: Oliver sat in with MM&W following King Johnson’s opening set. A demo landed them a record deal with Blue Note, who released ‘Ways Not To Lose’ in 2006. Follow-up ‘Loaded’ came in 2008; after covers EP ‘Up Above My Head’ the next year, the band moved to Zac Brown’s Southern Ground Artists for ‘Smoke Ring Halo’ and then 2012’s ‘Live, Volume One: Sky High’ and ‘Live, Volume Two: Nail and Tooth.’

F.I.V.E and F.E.A.R.S

Presented by Seed Space at Seed Space


The F.I.V.E. Feelings International Videoart Festival, the new international video art project created by Magmart will run August 22-October 24. Sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch. Through these five senses we interact with the world - and with other people. These senses are our interface. Like for Magmart's previous project, 100×100=900 Videoartists to Tell a Century, the goal is the same: to look, with the gaze of videoartists, onto mankind. And if for 100×100=900 the subject was the human history of the 1900s, F.I.V.E. focuses on the senses, on how we relate with those outside one's self. Senses are the medium between the world and us, are the instruments of feeling. They channel to us all the information that comes from the universe; they supply, even literally, the food for our body and for our minds.

F.E.A.R.S (Finally Everything as Remembered Simultaneously) by Carol Cole will run September 6 through October 15.

In her mixed-media work F.E.A.R.S (Finally Everything as Remembered Simultaneously), Carol Cole copes with emotions caused by the senses through art making. For Cole, the artistic process is therapeutic; by doodling negative spaces and allowing positive images to emerge, she is able to claim her identity and cope with her fears. "...The act of making enchants her and her forebears in any and all of her most passionate pursuits fire her imagination. From this, we as viewers are given the gift of true adoration. With the elemental psycho-sexual imagery comes an object lesson in femininity, feminism, heritage and hope."  -Scott Zieher, NYC-based artist and gallerist.

Jay Nash with Josh Day

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

"I remember when I was kid, being dumbfounded, paralyzed and terrified all at once, when the notion of infinity first dawned on me. I think that I was eleven years old and in the sixth grade at Enders Road Elementary School. It was then, that the expanse of the Universe and the endless stream of time first dwarfed my perception of my own reality and it was then, for the very first time that I felt afraid and alone.
This pre-pubescent, existential crisis was thankfully subverted by a fortunate discovery.
Music.
Sure, I had been listening to bands like Def Leppard, Quiet Riot and Kiss on expandable suitcase-record player since I was seven, which was all well and good. But, it was the sound of the Grateful Dead, emanating from my Sanyo boombox, as I laid in my bunk bed, that reconnected me to the world, humanity and I dare say, the universe. There was a language of truth that I had never heard before in Jerry Garcia’s fiery playing (circa the 1971, ‘Skull and Roses’ release), that intertwined in conversation, chorus and harmony with Bob Weir’s, glassy, rhythmic punctuations. The entire band was communicating with each other and it’s audience in way that I could barely comprehend. Suddenly, I was no longer alone." - Jay Nash

The High Watt - One Cannery Row, Nashville, TN, 37203



Yacht Rock Revival

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

You’re Welcome! The Yacht Rock Revue is the Greatest Show on Surf and the finest tribute to ‘70s light rock to ever perform anywhere. Ever. Their spot?on renditions of Hall & Oates, Michael McDonald, Steely Dan, and the rest of the Time?Life Infomercial Catalog have enthralled fans across the United States. It goes without saying they have taken their act to the high seas, performing showcase sets on music cruises with Weezer, Kid Rock, Train, Zac Brown Band, Sister Hazel, and fitness guru Jillian Michaels.

By blurring the lines between a tribute, an original act, and a comedic troupe, the Yacht Rock Revue has forged a unique niche market and a special bond with their fans. The band attacks each song as if it were their own, and the energy exchanged between the band and the crowd has more in common with a stadium U2 show than that of a typical bar band.

The band has won accolades ranging from “Best Place to Get Drunk With Your Dad” to “Best Overall Music Act in Atlanta” to “Best Place to Start an Extramarital Affair,” and has been name?dropped by the New York Times, Pitchfork, the Guardian UK, Spin, TimeOut New York, Billboard, MTV.com, and (probably) your mom at her last cocktail party.

Speaking of name?dropping, members of the band have played on?stage with members of Weezer, Billy Joel, Walter Egan, .38 Special, John Mayer, Zac Brown Band, Little River Band, Sheryl Crow, Noel Gallagher, Starbuck, Sarah McLachlan, Don Henley, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Neil Finn, Jellyfish, Devo, Nine Inch Nails, Joan Jett, Wet Willie, Bon Jovi, Skid Row, and the Saturday Night Live Band. (None of those were a joke.)

The Yacht Rock Revue has packed out shows at historic venues including the Variety Playhouse in Atlanta, the Knitting Factory in New York City, Athens’ famed Georgia Theatre, Washington DC’s State Theatre, and Nashville’s Mercy Lounge. They played at the finish line of the Peachtree Road Race for 50,000+ two years running; played on Turner Field for 30,000 fans on July 4; and sang the National Anthem at Braves Manager Bobby Cox’s last game.

The Greatest Yacht Rock Revival in the Universe on August 13, 2011 was the Yacht Rock Revue’s smoothest success to date. Almost 2,000 fans flocked to Buckhead to see the Yacht Rock Revue headline a show that featured legit ‘70s icons Little River Band, Ambrosia, Peter Beckett from Player, Walter Egan, and Starbuck.

2012 promises the return of the Greatest Yacht Rock Revival in the Universe, a new album of original material, an album of live material recorded at the historic Georgia Theatre in Athens, and more sailings on the high seas and across the United States.

Pick The Vote with My So-Called Band

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Pick the Vote 2014 is the first annual get out the vote event hosted by The Davidson County Democratic Party. Merging politics, pop culture, and music, Pick the Vote will be an opportunity to meet candidates, learn about important ballot initiatives, and most importantly, to have fun! The theme of this year’s event is the 90s - the decade that brought us Bill Clinton and Phil Bredesen, the Predators and the Titans, along with grunge music, hip-hop, and boy bands. We are thrilled to have Nashville’s favorite 90s cover band, My So-Called Band as our headliner! So, don your flannel, comb your hair into a caesar cut, and rip up your jeans- show off your 90s style and get ready to Pick the Vote!

My So-Called Band takes you back to a time before Creed and Hannah Montana, before George W. Bush and 9/11, before skinny jeans and American Idol. A time of flannels and ripped denim, Umbros and Hypercolor tees, the Fresh Prince and 90210. A time when mix tapes were king and the youth of America found an alternative way to rock. The 90's provided us with a soundtrack to it all, and My So-Called Band invites you to dive into this ocean of nostalgia with them. Featuring a rotating all-star cast of guest singers and musicians*, Nashville's newest tribute act-supergroup performs the 90's greatest hits, anthems, and one-hit wonders with a decidedly unironic sense of joy that is proving to be contagious. My So-Called Band: the ultimate 90's experience.

MSCB's founding band members are Dave Paulson (The Privates, Character, Esposito), Keith Lowen (The Privates, De Novo Dahl, The Comfies, Lifeboy), Joshua Watson (Bravo Max, Matt Friction & the Cheap Shots, The Comfies, Feeble Weiner) and Sam Smith (Ben Folds, The Comfies, Lifeboy). Our shows feature a rotating cast of very special guests, some of Nashville's finest singers who we consider to be MSCB's extended family: Tristen, Jordan Caress, Larissa Maestro, Jerry Pentecost, Cortney Tidwell, Sean Williams of The Nobility, Caitlin Rose, Gabe Dixon, Aaron Robinson, Benjamin A. Harper of The Comfies, Matt Friction, Erin Manning, Jon Rogers of Hotpipes, and more.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Presented by Nashville Repertory Theatre at TPAC - Andrew Johnson Theater

Back by Popular Demand! The rare instance of a musical thriller, this chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous “barber-ism” and culinary crime tells the infamous tale of the unjustly exiled Benjamin Barker (aka Sweeney Todd).  He returns to 19th century London seeking revenge against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The enterprising (and unforgettable) pie-maker Mrs. Lovett helps Sweeney Todd exact his revenge in the most "delicious" of ways.  Sophisticated, macabre, visceral and uncompromising, Sweeney Todd mixes intense drama with howlingly funny moments of dark humor. 

"Tennessee Rep turned TPAC's Johnson Theater sideways for its galvanizing mounting of the Sondheim classic. London looked foreboding and foggy per Gary Hoff's compressed set, and a small but mighty cast acted, sang and played stagehands as well in a marvelously brooding production that was daring in conception and right on the mark in execution." - Martin Brady, Nashville Scene (Best of Nashville, 2009)

TICKET SPECIAL: For a limited time, discounted tickets to Sweeney Todd are available in advance as part of Tennessee Rep's Sondheim Package. The Sondheim Package includes one (1) ticket for Company and one (1) ticket for Sweeney Todd per subscription. To build your Sondheim Package and save, CLICK HERE.

Cheekwood Harvest | Nashville Ballet presents Carnival of the Animals

Presented by Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art at Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art

The Lion, King of the Beasts, cannot understand why everyone isn’t exactly like him. If he’s the King he must be the best so of course all the other animals should change. A wise and patient Bird teaches the arrogant Lion to appreciate the beauty in each animal’s unique qualities. Follow the Lion as he journeys through this wild jungle full of whimsical characters. It’s a joyous celebration when the Lion learns that we are basically all the same on the inside, but it’s our differences that make life interesting.  Running time: 30 minutes
