The sessions in Nashville
Becki Sessions’ The Nashville Sessions
Well, we’ve finally gotten what we wanted.We want warmer weather, but not a week of rain! Not to worry. The saying goes, “You can’t keep a good man down!” This week has SOOOOO much going on that it’s impossible for me to squeeze it all in, but if you want to hear some fantastic live music, there are plenty of opportunities. Here are a few ideas for entertaining things to do in and around Nashville from March 13–19.
Some of my fave are the first two!
March 14 – Catfish and the Bottlemen

Songs on common topics and commonplace desire and love stories. what occurs when the lights are turned off. Each was presented with a distinct, wide-eyed appeal. An powerful live performance that deserves on a large stage has been refined via relentless travelling. Catfish and The Bottlemen want to take you with them as they travel.

The James K. Polk Theater in Nashville, Tennessee will host An Evening with Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Mayfield on March 17, 2015, at 8:00 p.m. Elliott Smith is a musician who both Avett and Mayfield like. Because Mayfield opened for the Avett Brothers on earlier tour dates, the two had already collaborated live to play Smith songs. Paul Defiglia from The Avett Brothers will perform on bass with the pair throughout their forthcoming tour. Avett and Mayfield are expected to include some solo songs in the concert in addition to singing Smith tracks from their album.
