South Walton has reason to celebrate with the announcement of the return of the tremendously popular First Note Music Hall experience.

First Note brought the music hall experience to South Walton at Redfish Village originally when owner Tommy Jackson opened it July 4, 2011. The public loved the music hall venue and the fresh, emerging Nashville talent it offered and showed its appreciation by packing the house week after week. However, after performing 150 shows, Jackson closed in March 2012 due to “family concerns,” and he sold the building.

"But, I just sold the building," he explains. "First Note Productions continued to go on with what we were doing."

In September 2013 he brought the First Note Music Hall concept to Arnett Stables for a weekend event, which was very successful.

"People asked me then, 'Is there a way to bring this back'?" he said.

But Jackson didn't want to own another building.

"The building at Redfish proved to be too small to hold the crowds that wanted to attend and there was no way to expand. We sold out every show and I didn't want to put myself in that position again," he said.
