We start things off on our outdoor stage THIS Thursday (09/18) with the BreakOut West Backyard BBQ…
“Western Canada is known for cold winters and hot music. But we’re no strangers to the joys of a summer afternoon backyard BBQ party. BreakOut West brings a stellar showcase of new music plus beer, food trucks and a dose of East Nashville attitude to the backyard at The Groove. Performers include JUNO Award-nominated country-roots singer-songwriter Del Barber, alt-country crooners The Bros. Landreth, prairie balladeer Zachary Lucky and folk-pop husband wife duo The Royal Foundry. The second annual BreakOut West Americanafest party is presented by Alberta Music, Manitoba Music, and Sask Music.”
Then on Friday (09/19), Lone Star Music returns to The Groove with another evening full of great music!
“If there is one thing that we Texans know how to do, it’s throw one hell of a party with some great live music! We’ll be serving up a good ole time at The Groove’s backyard stage with performances from John Moreland, Courtney Patton, Cory Branan, David Ramirez, The Howlin’ Brothers and Matt the Electrician (along with some very special guests!). We’ll be bringing some of the finest Texan spirits along with us, as well as East Nashville’s best taco truck!”
On Saturday (09/20), we wrap things up with the Bootleg BBQ, brought to you by the British Underground!
“Returning for its second year at The Groove record store, the Bootleg BBQ brings you some of the very best UK-based talent performing at Americanafest 2014, alongside superb new acts from the USA. Come and spend a relaxing afternoon in the backyard of one of Nashville’s finest record stores. Hear great music and enjoy local beer and BBQ. Playing this year from the UK we have Police Dog Hogan, Pete Molinari, Danny and the Champions of the World and Emily Barker with special guests Austin Lucas and Israel Nash. The event is an official Americanafest party produced by British Underground in association with the Americana Music Association UK.”
