Pilgrimage Festival 2016 - Franklin, TN
Beck rocked! Let's get that out of the way. But I'll come back to it later.
Walking through one of the fields from one stage to the next I turned to my friend and said, "Here we are, we've been waiting for this, and it's here." I was a little sad saying it because I knew it'd be over before I knew it, but I was also very happy in the moment. Pilgrimage is an intimate little festival, but you'd never guess it by seeing the artist line up. Although I saw a good number of friends, I'm pretty sure most of our town doesn't realize how good we've got it right here in our backyard. The food selections are great, there's plenty of beer, the market of artists and makers is wonderful and the music is pretty beyond compare. My favorites this year were Beck, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, The Stumbellas, Langhorne Slim, Better Than Ezra and one of my dearest friends, Matthew Perryman Jones. Here are some photos of some great musical moments. Enjoy.
