The Frist Center popular outdoor summer concert series Frist Fridays kicked off on Friday, June 24. Now in its fourteenth 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. Frist Fridays take place rain or shine.
Final event of the season:
August 26—Rhett Miller
While fronting the veteran roots-rock foursome the Old 97’s, which he co-founded in 1993, Rhett Miller has recorded seven solo albums. Described as an “alt-country lifer” by Rolling Stone, the critically acclaimed singer-songwriter and the Old 97’s have earned a devoted following for their endearing blend of pop sensibilities and muscular Texas bar-band twang. Miller excels at crafting vivid narratives in his songs, which are flush with memorable characters, settings, and literary allusions. His 2015 release, The Traveler, features Black Prairie, a Portland-based band that shares members with the Decemberists, as well as contributions from Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey of R.E.M.
