In mid-July, the Ryman will begin an exciting new summer concert series called "Americana at the Ryman." Stemming from the 20-year strong "Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman," this concert series will focus on America's roots, bringing incredible contemporary artists who weave sounds of the past into their music to the iconic stage.
Buddy Miller & Friends (including Lee Ann Womack) will start the Sunday series off on July 15, and Jim Lauderdale, William Fitzsimmons and The Secret Sisters will take over on the following Sunday, July 22. Finishing out July with a show on July 29 will be the Mark O'Connor Band and Brandy Clark. Hayes Carll performs on Aug. 5, followed by Amanda Shires and Caitlin Rose on Aug. 12 and Justin Townes Earle with The Band of Heathens closing out this year's series on Aug. 19.
"Americana at the Ryman" series passes for $213 are already on sale at Ryman.com. Seating for individual shows will go on sale June 4 at 10 a.m.
And for those who don't have ticket money in their budget, the Ryman is also offering a free concert series in the plaza before the concerts, much like "Pickin' on the Plaza" which occurs before the "Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman." These free events will be put on by 650 AM WSM and their roots music channel Route 650.
