We are trying to find out a bit about Nashville. We are wondering in particular about the live music there. I may be wrong but it looks like the honky tonks and that strip along Broadway is really touristy and we are wondering whether there is much really interesting music that is not geared towards the tourists. WHere do the locals go to listen to bands? We would like to find some authentic blues, bluegrass, alternative folk, rock and country music and not sure whether Nashville is the place to go. Also, we looked on google maps around the Hermitage Hotel and there doesn't seem to be any restaurants, shops or cafes within the immediate vicinity of this hotel - we want to stay somewhere located in an area where you can walk out and find interesting bars and places to eat etc. Any feedback would be appreciated, many thanks.
