In collaboration with members of the Murfreesboro community, Gallagher Guitar Co. is thrilled to announce the launch of the inaugural Gallagher Guitar Music Festival, referred to as GallagherFest.

This event promises to be a landmark occasion for music enthusiasts, instrumentalists, and fans of all ages.

This eagerly anticipated event is set to take place from May 3rd to May 4th, 2024.  GallagherFest is designed to celebrate the legacy of music and craftsmanship, showcasing an array of musical talents across a variety of genres.  The festival kicks off with an open jam session on Friday night, May 3rd, inviting musicians of all skill levels to participate in a communal music experience.  

The street festival, occuring Saturday, May 4th, is free and open to the public.

The festival will culminate in an evening concert headlined by the world-renowned Dan Tyminski Band, with Josh Rinkel and Laura Orshaw of the Po' Ramblin' Boys opening the show.

GallagherFest will host performances by a stellar lineup of artists throughout the day, including Jim Hurst, Chris Jones with Paolo Ercoli, Scott Heuston and Erica Flom, Asher Cataldo and Bryce Reeg, Kristen Ford, David DeVaul, Jesse Black, and Uncle Shuffelo and His Haint Hollow Hootenanny.
