Allison Russell, Adia Victoria, More to Play Musicians Corner

Allison Russell

Nashville's long-running free concert series Musicians Corner took a break from in-person events last summer due to — well, you know. I don't have to say it. But as we noted earlier this month, after making 2020's festivities online-only, Musicians Corner is returning to Centennial Park for a three-day festival next month, plus a multi-week September Sundown series at the end of the summer. And today, the series dropped its lineup for the June event.

From June 11 through 13, Musicians Corner will see performances from triumphant folk-soul artist Allison Russell, ace blues singer and poet (and sometime Scene contributor) Adia Victoria, dope R&B quartet The New Respects, soulful singer-songwriter Jason Eskridge, rock outfits Vacation Manor and Smooth Hound Smith, pop songsmith Jillette Johnson and others.

Hours for the weekend fest will be 5-9 p.m. on Friday and noon-6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Naturally, there will be vendors, adult beverages, food trucks, kids' activities and more. The aforementioned September Sundown series will take place every Thursday and Friday in September, along with a three-day event toward the end of the month in conjunction with AmericanaFest.
