You have till May 29 to start enjoying the summer! For this year’s Full Moon Pickin Party activities, Dark Horse Institute has teamed together with Friends of Warner Parks!
Imagine yourself wandering among the lights and sounds of roughly 2,500 of Nashville’s best pickers on a beautiful summer night as they are dispersed throughout the undulating horse pastures and in the barns of the Percy Warner Equestrian Center.
These musicians play acoustic guitars, basses, banjos, mandolins, harmonicas, and more. While this is going on, a main stage hosts a trio of the best local bluegrass bands. Of course, you didn’t leave home without a few cozy lawn chairs and an extra-large blanket so you could unwind while taking in snippets of the evening’s activities while gazing up at the sky. You can hear youngsters laughing and playing with light sticks in the distance as they rush through the meadow.
The sound of an acoustic guitar’s familiar chord progressions drifts past you as a consequence of a pleasant wind that has picked up just enough to wipe away the bead of perspiration that is beginning to form on your forehead. When someone inquires about food, you discreetly lead them to some of Nashville’s top food trucks, which are situated close to the horse stables and ready to serve up a mouthwatering platter of gourmet delight.
You decide to move closer to the stage to get a better view after claiming your space among the others that have come on this lovely night. You eventually find yourself You can make your way among the pickers who have organized their own picking groups and are strumming in time with their inner songs. There will be a throng assembled as you approach the end of one of the barns. Others appear to be spilling out of stall #16 and some are picking there, outside the stalls. You move curiously to the barn’s far end where you can hear additional music.
