The Country Music Hall of Fame will join Music City Roots to present an evening of music inspired by the museum’s Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City exhibition. The special show is set for tomorrow night (Aug. 16) at 7 p.m. at Liberty Hall inside The Factory at Franklin.
Tickets are $15 for reserved seats or $10 for general admission and can be purchased at musiccityroots.com or at the door. The first 50 people to arrive at the concert will receive an exhibit book for Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats, and every ticket buyer will receive a coupon for $3 off museum adult general admission.
Legendary “Nashville Cat” Lloyd Green and veteran West Coast session musician Jay Dee Maness, who both played pedal steel guitar on the Byrds’ 1968 classic album Sweetheart of the Rodeo, will perform instrumental versions of songs from that album. They will be accompanied by an ace band that includes bassist Dennis Crouch, drummer John Gardner, and guitarists Russ Pahl and Al Perkins. Tracy Nelson will perform songs that she originally recorded in San Francisco and Nashville in the late 1960s while fronting Mother Earth. Charlie Worsham will pay tribute to some of his musical heroes who are featured in the exhibit, and Jon Randall and friends will also perform on the special show.
The concert will be live-streamed at musiccityroots.com/livestream. The exhibition Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City runs through Feb. 18, 2018.
