Now in its twelfth season, Frist Fridays take place on the final Friday of June, July and August from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. in the Center’s Turner Courtyard. Patrons are invited to enjoy an evening of live music, light snacks and beverages as well as the diverse exhibitions on view in the Frist Center’s galleries. Visitors are encouraged to bring lawn chairs to the events. Frist Fridays take place rain or shine.

It’s the best way to start the weekend.

Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives

With his photography exhibition American Ballads: The Photographs of Marty Stuart on display in the Conte Community Arts Gallery, country music icon Marty Stuart will also showcase his songwriting and musical talents on the stage with his versatile touring and recording band the Fabulous Superlatives. This double duty of a featured visual artist performing on stage—a Frist Friday first—demonstrates that Stuart is a master storyteller not only through his songs, but also through his revealing photographs. Stuart, a platinum recording artist, five-time Grammy Award winner and Grand Ole Opry star and member, has been creating and performing roots music since he first went on tour with bluegrass legend Lester Flatt at age 13. American Ballads: The Photographs of Marty Stuart will be on display through November 2, 2014.
