Review of Station Inn

Very disappointed in this one. Don't require fancy accommodations or expensive trappings to enjoy good country music but the music quality and bar were comparable to any small VFW hall or Moose lodge on a Sunday night. Wanted more while in Nashville.

We arrived in Nashville on a Sunday afternoon and went downtown to see the free bluegrass jam session that takes place every Sunday night at the Station Inn. We were not disappointed! We were pleased to find there was plenty of parking nearby and it was easy to find. It's a pretty small dive bar, serving drinks and snack food including frozen pizza. The music is the real star of this place. It was awesome. The musicians were a diverse group of varying ages, from a 7 year old girl playing fiddle to a few men who looked to be in their 70's. So glad we went.

There is nothing like the Station Inn. It is one of the most revered venues for bluegrass, acoustic and Americana music in Nashville. Countless acts from the newcomers to some of the biggest acts in bluegrass make a beeline for this trusted favorite place when they come to Nashville. You never know who is going to show up in the audience and jump onstage with the headliner (the night I was there, New Grass Revival legend John Cowan did the honors).

Another major benefit to the Station Inn is that the refreshments are NOT overpriced. The souvenirs are reasonably priced as well, definitely among the least expensive things with "Nashville" printed on them that you can find in Music City.

The ONLY drawback about the Station Inn is that it is strictly first-come, first-served, so if you want to see a "hot ticket" act you need to get there early to get in line.

The atmosphere is very laid back and casual. $12 per person for a seat at a simple table set up. The live music was excellent. A food area offers varieties of alcoholic beverages as well as sodas. Our group got several pizzas, which were good. Performing was Buddy Green and Friends, who put on a great show. I will definitely stop in anytime I am in Nashville.

I was spending a few days with friends in Nashville and had persuaded them to take me to the Grand Ole Opry which was rather disappointing for us all (see my separate review). On my last night in town they suggested we visit the Station Inn which they had heard had great Bluegrass music. On the basis that we couldn't go too far wrong as it was Sunday night which is when a variety of artists have a jam session and there is no cover charge we were there when the doors opened. What a great surprise, the music was fantastic, the atmosphere was great and everyone was clearly enjoying themselves. With a few drinks and a pizza it was a great night. The venue is basic but the music justified the status of Nashville as a major music centre.
