The Blackberry Jam – June 25, 2022

PLEASE NOTE: ADVANCE (online) TICKET SALES HAVE ENDED. Gate tickets will be available for $15 until venue capacity is reached. Children 12 years and under are always free. Dinner box sales have ended. A limited number of dinner boxes will also be available for sale at the event.

This year’s Blackberry Jam will take place as an limited capacity event from Boyd Mill Farm on June 25, 2022. We celebrate being back together again for our 19th consecutive year!


Headlining this year’s event is the legendary Pat McLaughlin. Rolling Stone states: “Pat McLaughlin is a tasty, rootsy gem.” Music critic Michael Ross adds, “Pat McLaughlin’s music is a convergence point, where R&B, country, pop, and rock ‘n’ roll conjoin.”

The Jam kicks off with Gospel artist and America’s Got Talent alum Quintavious Johnson, followed by folk duo Carol and Dale and friends.


Rebecca Frazier then takes the stage. The first woman on the cover of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine, Nashville Scene writes, “Rebecca Frazier …is a genuine triple threat as a singer, songwriter and flatpicking guitarist.”

As we have from the beginning, the Jam will bring a talented, diverse line-up of musicians and our community together, and all for a great cause, Hard Bargain Association. Gates will open at 4:00PM, with music from 4:30PM-8:30PM. This is a rain or shine event.


This year’s event is presented once again by Franklin’s Downtown and Noon Rotary Clubs, and joined this year by Franklin Breakfast Rotary Club! With stage sponsor LP Building Solutions and support from 30 other area businesses and organizations, these perennial sponsors demonstrate the best of our wonderful community!
