On the banks of Old Hickory Lake at Historic Rock Castle, folk and bluegrass music shine for a night of great music! Various bands perform throughout the evening, filling the expansive grounds with wonderful sounds.

This year marks 225 years of Tennessee statehood. Daniel Smith (Rock Castle’s original owner) was the surveyor responsible for establishing Tennessee’s boundary lines and naming our state, it is only appropriate to celebrate this 225th milestone at Historic Rock Castle.
