Impatiently Waiting for Musicians Corner

By Ali Bartlett

Musicians Corner is a summer-long event at Centennial Park that features some amazing musicians of different genres! This Friday, August 4th, is their Acoustic Friday Night set, and every Saturday from August 5th - September 9th there will be live FREE music by the Parthenon! It's a super fun festival with food, drinks, and good vibes PLUS great music. Here are just some of the artists I'm excited to see (there's a lot okay)!

Londoner Jade Bird has made her way into the American bluegrass / folk scene with style. She has a country soul mixed with her own unique British flair. Her song Cathedral is so effortlessly poetic and poignant. Check it out!


Friday, August 4

Songwriters Trent Dabbs and Amy Stroup come together to form something super easy and cool. Bluesy vibes mixed with pretty harmonies makes for some really great songs. You don't wanna miss these two!

Okay, obviously a little biased with this one since he's an Olivia Management artist. BUT Matthew is amazing. His music will make your soul feel things you never knew it could feel. He's just an unbelievable lyricist and his music is the perfect balance of pretty folk and rustic Americana.

Thad definitely has some Sufjan Stevens vibes going on. His music is very introspective and ambient, and really causes the listener to sit back and think about what they're hearing. I personally love music like that, and can't wait to hear Thad mesmerize a live crowd.

While they are another Olivia Management artist, The Secret Sisters are killing it with their new album You Don't Own Me Anymore. This dynamic duo has some significant things to say, and they say it with such grace. Americana at its best.

I first saw Wilder at Belmont's Rock Showcase last year. They really knew how to command a crowd. This band definitely leans more toward the indie rock genre, and their big sound has even landed them some gigs opening for NeedtoBreathe and Kaleo! You won't regret checking this band out.
