PHOTOS: Music on the Move at Marathon Music Works
Y’all… guess what we did on Wednesday…
We went to a show!
Yes, a live, in-person one! With a stage and lights!
Indeed, it had been more than 11 months since I had fired up ol’ Buckshot to take photos in such a setting. Pandemics will throw a wrench in that, from time to time. But, if I was going to do it, there was no better time than the first Music on the Move showcase at Marathon Music Works of 2021.
Music on the Move (formerly Women on Fire) is hosted by Erin McLendon and her all-female house band, The HellCats. Each showcase features a different lineup of Nashville-based, female-fronted acts who always come prepared to bring the house down. Music on the Move also puts the spotlight on female-owned businesses in Nashville, offering vendor spaces and an opportunity for these businesses to connect with a new audience.
Wednesday night’s lineup featured a variety of big voices across blues, folk, and Americana. Joining McLendon and The HellCats throughout the night were country songstress and Belmont University alum Kayla Woodson, powerfully emotive folk duo The Daily Fare, blues-rock powerhouse Lauren Anderson, and engaging pop-country songwriter Cat Stone.
Also, credit is due to the folks at Marathon Music Works, who did an excellent job making sure Wednesday night’s show was a safe and enjoyable respite from the wild state of the world. We’re looking forward to the next one, without question. For now, take a look at the night through our lens!
