The Nashville Fringe Festival exists to celebrate the diversity of Nashville artists, and to honor the legends among us who enrich our city and inspire our lives.

This month we begin by sending our warmest wishes and a big congratulations to Charlie Rauh (take a look here to photos from back in 2012 of Charlie at the Fringe's guitar and dance workshop) whose most recent release, Hiraeth, was just nominated for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album at the 63rd annual Grammy Awards! Charlie has made good for himself in NY, but will forever be a part of the Fringe and we hope you help us in sharing in the celebration of his nomination!
While not homegrown in Nashville, Gangstagrass is another group that shared their talents with us in the early Fringe days (take a look at their 2012 Fringe performance at Springwater here). This is the first time rap has topped the Billboard Bluegrass chart and we send a huge congrats to the group for their success!
Having appeared and performed at many Fringe events over the years, we're proud to share this new track from Concurrence. Take a listen to the blazing "Conflagration" here. 

Speaking of past Fringe performers, we invite you to join Fable Cry for their Festival of Ghouls: a Halloween-themed convergence of emerging artistic talent and creativity exhibiting musicians, dancers, puppeteers, aerialists, sideshow performers, physical and digital artists and short film screenings. This year’s program is taking to the digital stage to support venues and artists directly impacted by the pandemic, and will feature live music, puppetry, spooky short films, sideshow feats, aerial acts & after hours ghoulesque!
We also hope to point your attention to the Nashville Film Festival, which is on its final day today. Featured in the festival is a documentary titled "Shine Service," which tells the incredible life story of Robert Person, a/k/a “Percy”, an 82-year-old, African American shoe shine man. Percy began shining shoes in 1947 with a small shoe stand on Nashville’s historic Jefferson Street and currently owns and operates Shine Service in the historic downtown Nashville Arcade. He is a Nashville icon and has touched the lives of many people including professional athletes and high-profile public officials. "Shine Service" was filmed and produced by Bolo Brothers Creative (Jared Rauso and Grant Carpenter) with musical credits going to Andy Leab. Please take a look at the trailer below and seek out the full-length release to support our local filmmakers!
And finally, from the minds that brought you Boo Dudes comes The Clownward Spiral - a 10 track horror spectacular from Terry the Horror Clown. Take a listen to the entire album here.

Looking ahead, we hope to better hold space for the diverse range of the city's artists. As Fringe Radio Show co-host E.T. adds each time he opens the program, the Fringe exists to celebrate music, dance, crafts, spoken word, film, and performing art of all varieties, and today we would like to open the Nashville Fringe Festival's website up to the city's performers and creators.

If you have upcoming artistic events, live streams, releases, projects, or performances - we want to hear from you.

Think of this as the pegboard at your neighborhood coffee shop, or the front window at the local record store. Please click the below link (or reply to this email) to send us information on your work and we will add it to the newly added Community Bulletin Board on our website.
