Nashville Blues?

Post by Honeyboy » June 11th, 2013, 9:44 am

Just went up to Nashville this past weekend. I was dropping my daughter off at MTSU where she's going to be going to school.

Anyway, I went into Nashville for the first time and was pretty blown away. It was a Sunday afternoon, and down on Broadway near the Ryman, there were clubs galore, all with a live band playing. There must have been 30 bands all gigging on a Sunday afternoon.

Now most bands were playing country music but a few had some blues goin on. And it made me wonder...

Is there a blues scene in Nashville? Do great players go there to find work and record?

I will be going back so I want to know if there are some great blues clubs or places to find the best players.

Thanks for your help... y'all... :wink:

There is a very large blues contingent going on. And every guitarist in Nashville is a professional which kind of means that none of them are professionals if you catch my drift. Get a hold of me before you head out next and connect you with a friend of mine who is the unofficial mayor of music city, Jonny Rocks.

Let me know next time you are in town. There's some great little blues spots, including an open jam in a BBQ joint north east of the city.
