Free Your Inner Bumpkin


While Memphis is undisputedly the home of the blues, you might be surprised to learn there are some fine fiddle and banjo players around too. They turn out in droves for the annual bluegrass fest this weekend at the Bartlett Performing Arts and Conference Center. The 4th Annual Pickin’ Picnic Bluegrass Festival runs from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Bring out your fiddle and jam, or pull up a lawn chair and enjoy the show. It’s free. Indoor concert Saturday night features Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum. Show’s at 8 p.m. $20.
