The COVID-19 pandemic has altered virtually every aspect of life and created a new normal for Nashville residents.
To capture the ways life has changed, award-winning photographer John Partipilo spent several weeks in the community and the result is an eight-part series of photos.
Jefferson Street Sound, a museum launched by local music historian and businessman Lorenzo Washington to honor the legacy of live music on Jefferson Street, was forced to close for several weeks because of the pandemic.
Washington and Jefferson Street Sound hosted a community event on July 18, which marked the first time the museum was open.
Jefferson Street Sound features photos, historical information about the artists who played on Jefferson Street clubs, and other items from the corridor’s rich music history.
