rolling Tennessee hills west of Nashville will again be alive with the
sound of music when the best of Bluegrass hits the stage in Bon Aqua on
Saturday, October 27th as the “Second Annual Bon Aqua Bluegrass Festival” is back, as promised, by popular demand!
earlier this month with unexpected venue/artist scheduling conflicts
and the unhappy prospect of disappointing fans, presenters of this
year’s event were ultimately able to re-schedule the originally
projected event into a full Saturday presentation that will include all
of this year’s originally advertised headliners.
Artists set to perform at the event, as originally announced, include Ralph Stanley II & The Clinch Mountain Boys, Remington Ryde, Nothin Fancy, Blue Mother Tupelo, and Larry Stephenson.
Backdrop for the entire event will for a second year be the historic “Hideaway Farm” in Bon Aqua, a short picturesque drive from Nashville. The lush 100 acre spread is the former creative home of music icon Johnny Cash.
will be in the newly renovated rustic barn–turned outdoor
stage–adjacent to the pre-Civil War log home that provides the
centerpience of the farm owned by Cash for more than 30 years and dubbed
by him, “the center of my universe.” Now equipped with state-of-art
sound and lights, the mainstage offers fans both covered and open air
seating. Food trucks will be onsite

The bluegrass event will help cap a full spring through fall agenda in Bon Aqua as The Storytellers Museum and Hideaway Farm are
rapidly becoming a “must see” destination for music lovers and tourists
from around the world. Both attractions have been lovingly restored and
opened to the public with a display of fascinating music memorablia and
one-of-a-kind artifacts as well as access to the former Cash home. A
recent visitor from England said it best: “Coming to visit the Farm and
Museum and getting to experience the home and the land where Johnny Cash
lived is an event in itself.”
