Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival @ Harlinsdale Farm / Franklin TN / September 22, 2019 (Day Two)

Thankfully for day two, Pilgrimage organizers paid off the weatherman for some cloud cover and an occasional breeze that provided some random respite from the sizzling sun. This sporadic relief however won’t stop my continued clamor for a transition to mid-October in 2020. But weather could not distract from another fine day of music and […]

Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival @ Harlinsdale Farm / Franklin TN / September 21, 2019 (Day One)

After a rain-shortened 2018 event that generated an avalanche of cranky unjustified complaints about its cancellation, Franklin TN’s Pilgrimage Festival was back for its 5th year. Judging by the size and joy of the crowd, it’s safe to say that Pilgrimage has recovered and looks to be with us for years to come. Once again, […]

Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival @ Harlinsdale Farm / Franklin TN / September 22, 2018 (Day One)

Watching the weather during the week gave great promise that this year’s fourth annual Pilgrimage Festival would not be as brutally hot as the past two years had been. It wasn’t until late in the week that the talk of any rain crept into the forecast. Little did anyone suspect that this threat of a […]

Another hot day in the sun with a crowd that surprisingly did not seem that much smaller than yesterday’s Timberlake experience.

Wow! Like it was last year, the third annual Pilgrimage Festival was a grueling experience. Despite the start of the fall season, it was a torridly hot day in the high 80s with a blaring sun that saw little if any cloud cover. It was a day to take it slow, find shade and stay […]

Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival @ Harlinsdale Farm / Franklin TN / September 25, 2016 (Day Two)

Was it Sunday church, the Titans’ football game, or maybe just the ridiculous heat that lessened the early crowd at the second day of the second annual Pilgrimage Festival? With not a single cloud in the sky, my guess is that it was Mr. Sunshine and the 90-degree heat that made many choose a late […]

Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival @ Harlinsdale Farm / Franklin TN / September 24, 2016 (Day One)

The second annual Pilgrimage Festival kicked off on an early fall date that was way hotter than anyone would have ever expected. There was also some buzz about whether scheduling it the same week as Nashville’s annual Americana Festival was such a good idea. But, at the end of the day, neither issue seemed to […]
