Make Music Nashville is an all-day, open-access, free non-profit festival taking place in various neighborhoods in Nashville, Tennessee on June 21st every year. Participation is encouraged from all ages, genres and abilities, from indie rock to bluegrass to a cappella, from music students to professional artists and everything in between.
Make Music Nashville’s primary goals are to provide an equal platform for musicians of all skill levels, interests and walks of life and to inspire the next generation of musicians through innovative outreach programming.
This celebration is not limited to residents of Nashville, but invites music enthusiasts from everywhere to come participate by performing, attending or volunteering. Join us to ring in the summer solstice as part of an international event with its heart and soul in our local community!
Turnip Green Creative Reuse (TGCR) is based out of passion and research started in 2010 by founding board members. They have visited other creative reuse centers across the country bringing her knowledge to the business plan for TGCR. TGCR is being built based on a model out of Durham NC, The Scrap Exchange. The board and program committee of TGCR is diverse, including environmentalists, nonprofit executives, several artists, and community members. With the wide range of expertise, TGCR has been able to do a lot in our community in a short amount of time.
TGCR has 4 areas of service: a retail donate what you wish ($) store, education/outreach, artist support, and a green gallery. It provides a welcoming and neutral place for artists, educators, and any creative person to connect. We hold a high priority to serve the art community as well as work with children in our community, bringing them ways to create from what they see going in the trash everyday.
The Festival’s goal is to promote interest in and enjoyment of the Ukulele in and around the Tennessee Valley and to advance and share "Ukulele Love” and the “Hawaiian Spirit of Aloha.” The program will feature beginner sessions and classes on various aspects of ukulele care and playing. Those not participating in the classes will be able to gather in small groups to share music and expertise. Open-mic sessions will be available and performances will be held on the NSS stage. The festival will also offer opportunities for club performances and group participation in strum-alongs. Other ukulele and Hawaii-related activities and performances may be included as available.
Bob's Your Uncle releases their second CD, "Cortez Avenue." They will perform the entire album (plus some extras!), and everyone goes home with a copy of the new CD. Special guests include Michael Mishaw, Bart Ryan and others; with an opening set by Nashville faves, The Ukedelics. $10 cover
Celebrating 10 years of service to the senior community, Music For Seniors is sponsoring a benefit concert.
