Music at the Frist: Singer-songwriter Ronny Criss and Friends
Please note, this event has expired.
Singer-songwriter Ronny Criss gathers a number of his songwriting friends for evenings of original music. Born in Arkansas and raised in Chicago, Criss is a talented tunesmith with Southern roots and a Midwestern sensibility. Join him and some of Nashville’s newcomers as well as established writers in the Frist café.
Abe Partridge is a former Baptist preacher who accepted a pastorate at 25 and then left after a near nervous breakdown at 27. He joined the US Air Force and is a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. Now in his well-seasoned mid-30s, he has begun to share his story through his music. Abe performs his songs like an old-time preacher gone mad – with all the soul he can muster. He is a poet, not afraid to tackle any subject. He makes no attempt at pop stardom or radio play – just delivers somber stories with a burning message that demand an honest hearing.
Admission is free for college students with valid school ID on Thursday and Friday evenings from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. (with the exception of Frist Fridays).
