A new series seeks to blend local history and live music in downtown Gallatin.
Songs and Stories at Historic Stonewall will take place on the second Saturday of each month from June through August.
Each performance in the series will take place in the courtyard outside the historic house, located at 332 E. Main St. in Gallatin, and all proceeds from the event will be donated to the Sumner County Museum.
“We wanted to bring more live music to the downtown area,” said Ryan Baker, executive director of the Sumner County Museum.
Tim Atwood will launch the series on June 12. During his career, Atwood toured with several country legends and performed at the Grand Ole Opry over 8,500 times. In 2018, he was inducted into the Academy of Local Musicians Hall of Fame.
Additional performance includes:
July 10: Marshall Chapman, legendary Nashville songwriter, actress, singer, songwriter and rock and roller who has released 14 critically acclaimed albums to date. His songs have been performed by various artists, including Emmy Lou Harris and Jimmy Buffett.
August 14: Jonell Mosser, a talented musician who has worked as a backing vocalist for artists such as Etta James, BB King, Trisha Yearwood and more.
Starting at 7:00 p.m. each evening, participants will be able to tour Historic Stonewall. The music will start at 8 p.m. and last until approximately 9:15 p.m.
A limited number of outdoor seating will be provided each evening, so participants are encouraged to bring their own chairs to the event.
“We won’t be serving food or having food trucks or anything like that, so if anyone wants to bring their own food, they can have a picnic in the field,” Baker added. “We will also be hosting local beer and wine tastings for those who attend.”
Tickets for Songs and Stories at Historic Stonewall cost $ 20 each night and can be purchased online at www.sumnercountymuseum.org.
