Tennessee’s musical heritage is undeniable, but where did it come from? It came by way of Scots-Irish immigrants who settled in the Appalachian Mountains bringing their songs and tunes with them. Over time, this heritage grew into bluegrass, folk, and Nashville’s country music that we love today.

Music City Irish Fest is celebrating more than 200 years of traditions since Nashville was founded by Irishmen, John Donelson and James Robertson, and Irish immigrants built the stone bridge across the Cumberland River in 1819. Nashville and Belfast’s Sister Cities relationship is a testament to our shared musical heritage.

Starting on Sunday, March 10th and continuing through Sunday, March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day, get your green on and celebrate at venues all across the city with something for everyone. For information and a full list of participating venues and locations, please visit: musiccityirishfest.com/locations.

Join the craic and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day Nashville-style with authentic Irish music, dance, food and drink, and even sports! Craic? Pronounced /krak/ (n.) – enjoyable social activity; a good time. The craic will be mighty!
