New Winston Museum

“Music in Winston-Salem” Salon Series
From Banjos to Blues: the music of early Winston

Thursday September 22, 2016 @ 5:30pm

Richard Emmett of the Blue Ridge Music Center will moderate a lively and entertaining with gifted local performers and music historians to learn about the musical history of our community. Featured panelists include: Elizabeth Carlson (Carolina Musicways), Bob Carlin (banjo player, music historian & author), and Big Ron Hunter (blues man).

From the collision of African and European styles, to the racial segregation of musicians, to genres enforced by record companies, the music of the American South has a rich history. Host to an ever-increasing number of musicians, the music scene in newly incorporated Winston-Salem was no exception.

Show for Joe

The sounds of the fiddle, banjo, and guitar are likely to welcome you when you visit the Blue Ridge Music Center. Experience regional traditional music each day of the week with FREE local Mid-Day Mountain Musicians playing on the breezeway of the visitors center from Noon - 4 PM.

The Music Center hosts a summer Roots of American Music Concert Series. Concerts take place in our beautiful outdoor amphitheater (capacity 2,500) at the base of Fisher Peak, feature local, regional, and national touring performers and bands, and are presented most Saturday evenings from late May through September.

The Music Center is also the home for the FREE state-of-the-art- award-winning, and interactive Roots of American Music Museum Exhibit, and the starting point for two beautiful hiking trails, the easy, family friendly (1.35 miles - one way) High Meadow Trail and the moderate Fisher Peak Loop Trail (2.24 miles).

The Blue Ridge Music Center is operated by The National Park Service, and the Music Center's programming is coordinated through a partnership with the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation.
