Americana Music Festival

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

Now in its fourteenth year, the Americana Music Festival and Conference is the flagship event of its namesake genre — that nebulous but more and more broadly embraced genre that links together artists as sundry as Shooter Jennings, Steep Canyon Rangers and Richard Thompson (the latter, of course, being a Brit). Today, the fest launches not only with nighttime showcases at various venues, but also conference events at the Sheraton Nashville Downtown on topics including fan funding, networking and website design. Tonight’s showcase highlights will include Alabama neo-soul shakers St. Paul and the Broken Bones at The High Watt, fleet-fingered string band Della Mae at The Station Inn and old-time troubadour Pokey LaFarge at Cannery Ballroom, among others. The fest continues on into the weekend — keep your eyes open for the next issue of the Scene, wherein we’ll explore the Americana Music Festival in depth.
