Musicians Corner, Nashville’s free concert series, returns this spring with a five-week season of live music in Centennial Park, kicking off May 19. Musicians Corner will take place every Friday from 5 – 9 p.m. and Saturday from 12 – 6 p.m. from May 19 to June 17, with a special Sunday performance over Memorial Day Weekend (May 28) and a special Thursday performance on June 8 by the Nashville Symphony.
“We’re thrilled to unveil another exciting season of Musicians Corner,” said Justin Branam, Musicians Corner Executive Producer. “As one of Centennial Park Conservancy’s most beloved annual events, Musicians Corner has brought the community together to celebrate Nashville’s vast music scene each year since 2010. We can’t wait to once again celebrate the unifying power of music with our friends and neighbors this spring in Centennial Park.”
Centennial Park Conservancy’s Musicians Corner has grown into an annual, free outdoor concert series that touts Nashville’s diverse musical landscape and attracts over 75,000 fans annually to Centennial Park. The family-friendly and pet-friendly concert series also features Kidsville activities and local artisans, plus food and beverage vendors that contribute to the renowned fun and communal appeal of the series.
Musicians Corner spring line-up will feature multi-genre performances from artists, including: Jordy Searcy, Savannah Conley, Blessing Offor, The Brummies, and the Nashville Symphony. The 2023 series kicks off with performances from Nikki Lane, Seratones, Alanna Royale, Jackie Venson and more (full lineup below).
