This is the year! The 20th anniversary of the Blackberry Jam! Join us for this year’s limited capacity event from Boyd Mill Farm on June 24, 2023. And what a show it’s going to be!
Headlining this year’s event is the one of Nashville’s finest – award-winning songwriter and recording artist Shawn Camp. Some careers can be described with a couple of words, but Shawn Camp’s isn’t one of them. The Arkansas native has earned wide respect as the top-tier penman behind #1 Billboard hits for George Strait, Josh Turner, and Brooks and Dunn. The accomplished instrumentalist, who has accompanied luminaries including Guy Clark and John Prine, frequently backs seamless lyrics with his fiery fiddle, guitar and mandolin riffs.
The Jam kicks off with the innovative banjo artist Michael Ricks, followed by folk duo Carol and Dale and friends. MSG Acoustic Blues Trio then takes the stage, returning to the Blackberry Jam for this special 20th anniversary show. Performers of traditional Piedmont blues, this band can raise the roof with some old-fashioned house party tunes, make you laugh with their witty originals and then make you weep with blues ballads!
As we have from the beginning, the Jam will bring a talented, diverse line-up of musicians and our community together, and all for a great cause, Hard Bargain Association. Gates will open at 4:00PM, with music from 4:30PM-8:30PM. This is a rain or shine event.
This year’s event is presented once again by Franklin’s Breakfast, Downtown and Noon Rotary Clubs! With stage sponsor LP Building Solutions and support from 30 other area businesses and organizations, these perennial sponsors demonstrate the best of our wonderful community!
