Harvest Jamboree


Sunday, October 2, 2022

4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Brentwood Harvest Jamboree is an afternoon of fun for the whole family with music, free food, and some of your favorite carnival games! We're also proud to support The Branch of Nashville, a food bank in Southeast Nashville helping families by offering English Language classes and emergency food support.


Help us collect items for The Branch of Nashville Food Bank by bringing pantry-stable items to Harvest Jamboree! Most-needed items are peanut butter, dried beans, dried pasta and pasta sauce, flour, sugar, cereal, and cooking oil.


Charlotte Varnum

4-4:45 p.m.

Charlotte Varnum is a Nashville-based artist who writes and performs original music influenced heavily by the mid-century soul and rock she was raised on, as well as the great story-telling lyrics of folk and country. She is fresh off of the release of her second EP, The Time Machine EP, where she explores those musical influences through the decades.


the people's orchestra of nashville

4:45-5:30 p.m.

Founded during the pandemic for the sheer love of making music together, The People’s Orchestra of Nashville began as a ‘reading orchestra’ and has evolved into a performing ensemble. The PON explores a diverse repertoire covering standard symphonic, operatic, ballet and pops repertoire, and is open to college students, freelancers, teachers, professors, and working professionals who have a background in music. It is a community-based ensemble focused on creating musical collaboration amongst people from many different walks of life. The PON is led by Music Director and Conductor Joshua Shepherd. He brings to this role two decades of experience as violinist, violist, vocalist, and conductor in both the classical and commercial music industry. Shepherd holds a D.M.A. in viola performance from the University of Miami and a M.M. in conducting and viola performance from the University of South Florida.


mason caviness

5:45-6:30 p.m.

Mason Caviness hails from the dry flatlands of west Texas, but his music is anything but desolate. Drawing on experiences of pain, loss, redemption, and joy, Mason sees songwriting as therapy; a running tally of processing and reflecting, evolution and stillness. He released the single "Music to My Ears" in May 2022, a song born out of a 5 year hiatus from music. "I gave myself a chance to put the dream away, to just try and figure out how to be a healthy person, maybe for the first time ever.” His follow up single, "Bound to Be", was released in July 2022, a song written from the prospective of a father to a son. His debut album is set to release Spring 2023.
