Last weekend the wife and I watched the über-talented Liz and Tim perform on the Commons in Norris, TN. They were great, as was the venue. It had the feeling of a grand picnic, including a soundtrack. People in lawn chairs, dogs and children running wild, and snacks.
You can see a new act each Friday evening in the summer. Check the Norris on the Commons website for the next show. If you're anywhere near Norris it's worth the trip. Even if you're not, throw ice in your cooler and your cooler in the car and make the trip. It's lovely.
