FIRST ANNUAL “BON AQUA BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL”-JULY 1-BRINGS TOGETHER TOP ARTISTS, ICONIC SETTING IN TENNESSEE FOR A “MUST SEE” SUMMER MUSIC EVENT
Headliners include Lonesome River Band, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver And NewTown
Nashville, Tennessee -The first annual “Bon Aqua Bluegrass Festival” is tuned up and ready to make music on July 1 amid the lush 100 plus acre setting of “The Hideaway Farm” in Bon Aqua, Tennessee-former creative home of music legend Johnny Cash.
The one day, family-friendly event will kick-off 4th of July weekend with a full schedule of some of the top mainstage names in bluegrass music-including Lonesome River Band, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver and NewTown. The Hogslop String Band and The Storytellers Hideaway Farm Band will add featured performances to a full day of music. Backdrop for the music will be the rustic outdoor theater adjacent to the pre-Civil war log home Johnny Cash owned for more than 30 years and called “the center of my universe.”
Event admission will include “open house” tours of Cash’s log home between 10:00 AM and 9:00 PM, as well as access to “Cinnamon Hill”-a free standing display of Cash memorabilia, photo gallery and array of vintage cars. Music will begin at 10:00 AM day of event and concert goers are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and picnic baskets to take advantage of the scenic farm setting surrounding the mainstage. Covered seating at the outdoor theater is limited on a first-come basis day of event. Ample parking is free.
Just 40 minutes west of downtown Nashville, Bon Aqua is proving to be the new ‘must see’ music destination in Middle Tennessee since the opening of “The Hideaway Farm” and companion attraction “The Storytellers Museum.” The “Bon Aqua Bluegrass Festival” is expected to bring bluegrass fans from across the nation for the first of what is planned as an annual event.
Food will be available for purchase onsite and additional free fun attractions for the kids will be provided by Bouncy House and Anthony the Balloon Kid.
