Event Details

Do you hear it? Only the music of Jackson and West Tennessee could connect Memphis’ Beale Street and Nashville’s Music Row in the heart of the Americana Music Triangle. Join us for the 2017 season as it kicks off Friday, May 12, with the Kimberlie Helton Band brought to you by Relay For Life of Madison County and the West Tennessee Healthcare Foundation at the award winning music venue Jackson‘s Amphitheater at the Market (AMP).

Blankets and lawn chairs are welcome at this family friendly event! Free parking is available throughout Downtown. In the event of rain, please refer to the AMP’s facebook page for updates.
