Marionettes, rod puppetry, shadow animation, and an ever-changing set tell the story of country music as it relates to Nashville’s transformation into Music City. Experience this exciting true story through nearly one hundred puppets, ranging from the Staple Singers to Johnny Cash to Taylor Swift. String City: Nashville’s Tradition of Music and Puppetry is a co-production by the Nashville Public Library and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. String City was created and is presented by the Nashville Public Library’s Wishing Chair Productions in collaboration with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and was made possible in part by a special gift from Judy and Steve Turner to the Nashville Public Library Foundation.

No purchase necessary. Walkup tickets available the day of the program.

For additional fun, make a puppet during your visit! Drop by Creative Zone: Puppet Making in the Taylor Swift Education Center between 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. to create a puppet inspired by String City.
