We spent about 4 hours at the Franklin Jazz Festival last night, held on the historic square in downtown Franklin. The two-day (evening, really) festival features a number of jazz musicians on two stages, as well as food, drinks, and a number of informational and craft booths.
The music started at 5:00 PM, and attendees sat on lawn chairs (their own), benches, curbs, grass, etc. to listen to a number of musical acts including Cissy Crutcher and her band (above), Corazon, Buckwheat Zydeco, and the Storm Kings. Money raised from admission fees ($5/person) benefits the Epilepsy Foundation of Middle and West Tennessee.
While it was pretty hot and humid here today, it was not too uncomfortable once the sun went down. (The sno cone booth stayed busy the entire evening!) Apparently we weren't the only ones who thought that since thousands of people showed up for the event.
The Festival continues this evening, starting at 5 PM, again.
