Presented by The Tennessee State Museum Foundation

String Fever

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

Last week’s Scene featured a cover story about the Tennessee State Museum exhibit The Guitar: An American Love Story, a terrific collection of more than 170 rare and historically significant guitars the likes of which Nashville has never seen. What better way to highlight the exhibit and raise money for the museum’s foundation than a concert featuring some of the best guitarists on the planet? Hosted by Vince Gill, no slouch himself, the String Fever event will feature Larry Carlton, Steve Cropper, Duane Eddy, John Jorgenson, Johnny Hiland, Rory Hoffman, Jack Pearson, Marty Stuart, Guthrie Trapp, Steve Wariner, Al Perkins, Andy Reiss, Steve Gibson, Kenny Greenberg … do I need to go on? Nashville’s had no shortage of guitar celebrations, but this just might be the ultimate six-string shootout — what The Avengers was to superheroes, String Fever is to guitar players. Nashville pickers, prepare to be schooled. And it’s for a great cause, the criminally undersung Tennessee State Museum, which features an extensive permanent collection examining our state’s history, not to mention a great roster of changing exhibits — and thte museum doesn’t even charge admission. For information and tickets to the concert, visit
