Musicians Corner Celebrates Five Years Of Awesome Free Music In Nashville

In 2010 — inspired by the historic open-air speaking site “Speaker’s Corner” in London’s Hyde Park — Nashville launched Musicians Corner, celebrating our city’s most widely heralded form of free speech. Every year, a broad mix of musicians are invited to take the stage in Centennial Park on 18 spring and summer dates, to do what they do for locals and visitors, all for free.

In 2016, the series celebrates its fifth anniversary, and it’s bringing out a fittingly fantastic and diverse collection of singers and players to mark the milestone.

The summer 2016 season kicks off this weekend: On Saturday, August 6, seven acts perform on two stages throughout the afternoon. If you bought individual tickets for these folks, you’d be dropping a serious few bucks. Thanks to The Conservancy for the Parthenon and Centennial Park, in partnership with the city and Nashville music industry players, we get a weekly dose of musical excellence in one of our city’s natural treasures, 100 percent free of charge.

Musicians Corner summer 2016 shows follow each Saturday through September 3, and I thought I’d offer a quick playlist to give you a sample of what you have to look forward to, starting on Saturday.
