Jake Leg Stompers at Pilgrimage Fest

Jake Leg Stompers at Pilgrimage Fest

Jake Leg Stompers play Middle Tennessee's biggest and best Fall music event, Pilgrimage Music and Heritage Festival in Franklin, TN on Saturday, September 22nd from 11:30am to 12:05pm. 

THE EXPERIENCE OF PILGRIMAGE MUSIC & CULTURAL FESTIVAL

Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival was inspired by friendship, history, experience and the desire to create an authentic music festival. Three years ago, Musician and Franklin, TN resident Kevin Griffin was on a September morning run through The Park at Harlinsdale, a century-old horse farm recently purchased by the City of Franklin. Kevin was so taken by the rolling hills, natural amphitheaters, and breathtaking vistas of the 230-acre farm, he envisioned it as a natural fit for a music festival venue. Considering Franklin’s music and cultural history, Kevin wanted the community to further appreciate combining this with the beauty and rustic quality of Middle Tennessee in the fall, and with the blessing of the City, began to dream up a music festival to do it justice.

Partnered with lifelong buddies W. Brandt Wood and Michael Whelan, the trio aspired to highlight the diversity and community spirit of the New Orleans Jazz Fest, tailoring the best elements to Franklin– a richly historic town just 20 minutes south of Nashville. Like Jazz Fest, Pilgrimage takes place during the day, and offers a diverse yet renowned lineup of rock and roll, alt-country, bluegrass, jazz, indie, gospel and more.

The festival has grown in its three years to double down on the music programming, with six stages and heralded lineups year after year, and has expanded its cultural focus by showcasing hundreds of local artisans, restaurants, food trucks and makers that give context and authenticity to the Pilgrimage experience.

Pilgrimage has always presented itself as family friendly which means kids are welcomed and encouraged to experience festival culture at young age. Specifically, at the Lil’ Pilgrims Area with Grammy award winning producer, Ralph Covert, kids experience numerous activities, renowned artists, and are presented musical talent at a high level that has underscored a commitment to the “all ages” experience.

Each year Pilgrimage develops new elements to continue to create a music festival with the mission to grow and evolve each year. In 2017 Pilgrimage introduced Farm to Turn-Table, a food truck park with plenty of shade, seating, food trucks and activities that made it an event in itself. In 2017 Pilgrimage also introduced the Americana Music Triangle Experience which was a collection of municipalities from the rich music heritage of the South in one tent to participate for the first time, collectively in sharing this rich heritage. Thousands of people got to see in one place, where they might want to visit these towns, small and large, to keep this history alive.

When performances wrap and the lights come back on, guests can conveniently head back into the heart of downtown Franklin, within walking distance from the Park at Harlinsdale, to imbibe the best of the town’s bars and restaurants, retail shops, and great weekend lineup of nighttime shows and events.

Dust Bowl to Dance Hall

The Jake Leg Stompers and the Eggplant Faerie Players bring “Dust Bowl to Dance Hall: A Story of American Music” to the Arts Center of Cannon County for a special, one time performance on Saturday, September 1st at 7:30 p.m.

In true Vaudeville style, featuring circus tricks, juggling displays, period instruments, spectacular costumes, and special surprises, “Dust Bowl to Dance Hall” traces the history of American vernacular music from early 19th century plantation dances to the rise of popular song after World War II.

“This is a show we have been talking about doing for many years, bringing together the wonderful variety of the earliest recorded American music, from blues and ragtime to folk and gospel to the birth of rock and roll,” says Bill Steber, co-founder of the Murfreesboro-based jug band, the Jake Leg Stompers. “But telling the story of this rich musical tradition in collaboration with the supremely talented Eggplant Faerie Players really brings the show to life, and gives the audience a taste of a truly original American art form—Vaudeville. This is the show we’ve been preparing for our whole career.” 

The Jake Leg Stompers were founded in Murfreesboro in 2004. They have released 4 albums, and are the 2018 winners of the Jug Band competition in the Uncle Dave Macon Days music festival held annually in Murfreesboro. 

The Eggplant Faeries players have decades of work in theater and a mastery of circus performance, including juggling, unicycle, stilt walking and physical feats to entertain and delight.
