TOWN OF COLLIERVILLE, TN
HONORS 20th SEASON OF
BLUEGRASS MUSIC ON THE SQUARE
April 22, 2019
Town Square Gazebo in Springtime
Bluegrass and old-time musicians gather any time they have a chance to pick a little, especially on a town square like this! Thanks to musicians Christine Donhardt and Clay Caver, the Town of Collierville noticed the recent 20th anniversary and honored the occasion with a proclamation and a beautiful billboard which was placed at the Town Square for a period of time. Special thanks to Main Street Collierville for the billboard! Additional special thanks to Collierville Mayor Stan Joyner and the Town Board of Aldermen! The billboard was taken down to provide for other noteworthy events in town, but the musicians wasted no time in getting to the Town Square with their instruments for a quick photo shoot while the billboard was up. Whew! The musicians just did make it! The billboard was put away for safe-keeping, but it will reappear in the future.

Keeping it brief, we should say that we are back at the Town Square for the spring/summer/and fall of 2019. We encourage musicians of all skill levels, along with families, friends, and casual onlookers, to join us on Friday evenings at about 6:30-ish BST (Bluegrass Standard Time, which is whatever time the artists finish chatting and tuning instruments). Bring the pickin' stools and lawn chairs (sack suppers and blankets for the kids, too) and come on out!
Here are some photos to entice you, the reader, to head out to the beautiful Historic Town Square in Collierville, TN. Many of you will also remember when "Parade" magazine held their competition for the "Best Main Street in America," and you just know which Main Street won top honors. Ours, of course!
