If you’re planning a summer vacation trip to Nashville, you’ll want to consider a trip to the Ryman Auditorium. And what better day than a Thursday when you catch a bluegrass show?
Tonight, June 21, 2007, kicks off the season’s Bluegrass Nights At The Ryman series. Tonight’s show features American music legend, Earl Scruggs. Also performing tonight is the Nashville Bluegrass Band. Each Thursday night from now till then end of July will feature a bluegrass show with at least two acts.
All shows begin at 7:30 PM CST and tickets cost $22.50 each. Tickets are available online through Ticketmaster for each show individually, and series tickets are available through the Ryman box office for $125. Series tickets get you in to all 6 shows in the series for an average ticket price of just under $21.
Visit the Ryman website for information on the series, including a show schedule and list of performers.
UPDATE 2:25 p.m.: Earlier this week, Nashville’s hometown newspaper, The Tennessean, had a nice feature on Earl Scruggs’ return to The Ryman. The article includes a number of his remembrances from his many years of performing at the Opry. You can read the article online, where The Tennessean has also posted several classic photos of Earl.
