Nashville Zoo Debuts Heritage Music Festival Featuring Jeff Black
Make plans to attend Nashville Zoo’s inaugural Heritage Music Festival, featuring Jeff Black, on Saturday, September 17. The event, running from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m., will honor the Zoo’s history with Americana style music on the front lawn of the Historic Home and living history demonstrations on the back part of the Historic Farm property.
Guests are invited to enjoy live music from a great lineup of artists on the main stage which includes Jeff Black, Luke Amelang, Carolina Story, The Danberrys, Grasstime, TN Warblers, and The Erabellas. The kid’s stage will include music from The Happy Racers and Bill Crosby as well as animal meet and greets.
Blacksmiths, spinners, woodcarvers and other artisans will be demonstrating 19th century trades on the back lawn, while guests try their hand at old-time activities, such as cider making and butter making. The Tennessee Association of Vintage Baseball will be throwing the ball around and talking about the history of America’s favorite pastime. Tours of the historic home will be conducted by costumed interpreters, and garden tours and demonstrations will be led by the Davidson County Master Gardeners.
Heritage Music Festival is sponsored by WSM, Classic Party Rentals, and Golden Flake Snack Foods. Baby+Company will also be hosting a Mom Spot on-site at the event with a diaper changing station and privacy tent for nursing moms. The event is free with Zoo admission or membership.
