AmericanaFest 2015: Sept 15-20

americana-fest-20151AmericanaFest, the Americana Music Festival and Conference, returns to Nashville September 15-20 with more than 150 performances and what is easily the most tasteful and deliberate music awards show in the country. 2014 winners included Jason Isbell, The Milk Carton Kids, and Sturgill Simpson.

Loretta Lynn, Steve Earl, Gillian Welch, and Valerie June top the list of performers featured this year, but there really isn’t a dull moment throughout the entire schedule of showcased acts.

Among the immense amount of talent that will be taking the stage at various venues around the city, Georgia acts T. Hardy Morris and Lera Lynn (now based in Nashville) will be representing the Peach State.

Other acts including River Whyless, Andrew Combs, American Aquarium, Great Peacock, and Josh Ritter, are just a few of the acts we’ve been lucky enough to feature throughout TheBlueIndian in the past few years as well.

The music showcase and related events benefit the Americana Music Association, a non-profit, professional trade organization whose mission is to advocate for the authentic voice of Americana music around the world.

Tickets vary depending on which event you’re interested in attending (single show tickets are available also), but we’ll be spending our time hopping from venue to venue during the Showcase ($60.00).
