Friends of the Festival will present the 11th consecutive year of Riverfront Nights, presented by BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, a free concert series at Ross's Landing on the city's 21st Century Waterfront.
The series kicks off July 15 and continues for the next six consecutive Saturday nights through Aug.19.
The Mountain vs. Monkey Town opens the show at 7 p.m. on the Comcast Stage. Headliner Elliot Root performs at 8 p.m. A short program to remember the tragedy of July 16, 2015 will start at 7:50 p.m.
Review for Elliot Root:
Elliot Root is a Nashville-based alternative rock band made up of five members that met through a series of acquaintances before their first collaboration. Elliot Root's music provides an eclectic mix of poetic lyrics and unique rhythms. Their distinct sound and high-energy shows have landed them opening slots on major tours with the likes of the Zac Brown Band.
Remaining performances are: Courtney Daly Band opening for Alanna Royale on July 22, The Young Fables will open for Ganstagrass on July 29, Tyrezz opens for Govinda on Aug. 5, The Diamond Dogs open the show for Galactic Cowboy Orchestra on Aug. 12, and the series wraps on Aug. 19 with Stone Cold Fox and Tinsley Ellis 'Blues is Dead.'
