by Dave Carew

ParkLife—the annual benefit concert for Lambscroft and Nashville’s homeless—has announced its musicians line-up for this year’s festival-concert, which will be held on Saturday, August 18 in Sevier Park (12South), starting at 3 p.m.

Lambscroft is the local nonprofit covered by the Associated Press, The Tennessean, and other media that helps the homeless of Nashville. Proceeds from the ParkLife concert will go toward completion of The Cookery, a training facility under construction on 12th Avenue South that will offer culinary arts (cooking) training to the homeless as a safe, effective pathway off the streets.

Among the popular bands and singer-songwriters performing at this year’s ParkLife will be:

Yes Dear

Lane Terzieff

Poppy

Dakota Bradley

Oaklynn

Steve Moakler

All Sons and Daughters

The Weeks

Wavorly

Update:  Contrary to a previous post on ‘Underground Nashville,’ Sara Beck and The Gram Band will not be able to perform at this year’s ParkLife.

Editor’s Note: “Underground Nashville” covers artists, authors, musicians, poets, political figures, and other compelling people and happenings not typically covered by the mainstream Nashville media. It also presents reflections and commentary from an underground/indie perspective, offering “thoughts from the shadows of a great American city.”
