This festival has a unique mission. Hoedown On The Harpeth will showcase bluegrass, old time, western swing, classic country, & honky-tonkin’, acoustic music from Nashville’s many local artists as well as guest artists from around the world. Our purpose is to honor the history and experience of country music, from the sound of the old-time fiddle on the front porch to the inception of the Grand Ole Opry and on to the “Bakersfield Sound”. Country music legends such as Ernest Tubb, Loretta Lynn, Hank Williams Sr., Lefty Frizzell, Bob Wills, and Bill Monroe – to name a few – spent their lives loving and playing music for all of us to enjoy; therefore, we submit that the original sounds of such pioneers of country music be celebrated for purposes of preservation, growth, and most importantly appreciation by fans and musicians alike. Hoedown On The Harpeth will be more than just a festival; it will be an entire experience.
Expect pickin’ areas, street buskers and performers, historically-themed arts and crafts, informational areas, and family activities to bring the legacy of country music alive. For this is a way of music fast-fading, from which so much has been born and stands today. If today is only the result of yesterday, then these are certainly yesterdays best not forgotten.
