Journeys of Discovery: Tennessee’s Commodore Hotel offers Buffalo River kayaking and live-music

Jun 5, 2021

Kathy and Michael Dumont operate the historic Commodore Hotel in downtown Linden, Tennessee. In addition to live music every week, they take guests on fascinating Kayak trips down the Buffalo River. Join correspondent Tom Wilmer as he visits with Mike Dumont followed by a visit with two Tennessee musicians, The Professor and The Bull, who regularly perform in the Commodore’s Music Café.

The Commodore is located along the Nashville’s Big Back Yard’s Natchez Trace itinerary that follows the historic road from the outskirts of Nashville down to the legendary Shoals region in Northern Alabama. Linden, Tennessee is approximately midway between Memphis and Nashville.
