Musician’s Corner is back for a second year of brightening our Nashville summers with free live music. The weekly mini-fests in Centennial Park happen every Saturday from 3-6pm in May, June and the first week of July, and they’re packed full of local musical talent, fun activities and food. The first 2011 Musician’s Corner will be May 7 and in addition to the great lineup (which we’ll list below) there’s a free photo booth, free Ben & Jerry’s samples, Kidsville, crafts and more. Musician’s Corner is also teaming up with a local charity partner each week, and the Mocha Club will be representing at the first event.
More artists will be announced in the coming weeks, but check out the lineup for this summer below. We’ll never turn down an excuse to throw down a blanket and camp out in the park for the afternoon, so we’re pretty excited that Musician’s Corner is back this year.
