Purchase streaming audio concert(s)
to support mountain musicians & BRMC programming

Until we can once again gather to enjoy live performances at the Blue Ridge Music Center, we are offering a selection of streaming audioconcerts recorded live during past Roots of American Music concert seasons. Your streaming purchase is a wonderful way to support the featured musicians who have graced our stage as well as the Blue Ridge Music Center during these challenging times for performers and venues.

We are suggesting a payment of $10 to purchase 30 days of access to each concert stream, BUT we will send you access to the concert of your choice for a contribution of any amount. 

We hope you'll take this opportunity to relive the magic of live performances at the Music Center, and boost regional musicians whose incomes have declined precipitously with the cancellations of concerts, tours, and festival appearances due to efforts to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. 

Purchase your archival concert audio stream now!

Please allow 24 hours from the time of your purchase to receive access to the concert stream. You will be sent a link via e-mail, and can enjoy access to the concert stream for up to 30 days. 

If you would like to purchase multiple concert streams, please contact Marianne Kovatch at mkovatch@blueridgemusiccenter.org or (866) 308-2773, ext. 212.

Jeff Little Trio (bio

recording from  July 7, 2018

With few exceptions, the piano does not play a prominent role in Appalachian or Americana music, and is rarely the lead instrument. But the music of the Jeff Little Trio is an exception. Littles distinctive two-handed style, much influenced by the mountain flat-picked guitar tradition, is breathtaking in its speed, precision, and clarity. His involvement with fiddle tunes, old-time country, and traditional blues dates back to his childhood in Boone, North Carolina, when he would regularly sit in with musicians at his family's music shop. In 2014, Little was inducted into the Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame. Rounding out the trio are award-winning guitar and banjo player Steve Lewis and Josh Scott on mandolin.

Reggie and Ryan Harris are a real brother duo born and raised in Western North Carolina, where they were exposed to a wide variety of music from an early age. They have been playing professionally as a duo for more than 20 years. Reggie sings and plays guitar, banjo, and a kick-drum suitcase for percussion; Ryan sings and plays the bass. The Harris Brothers repertoire consists of a number of genres from traditional roots music, rock & roll, jazz, blues, Appalachian mountain music, to vintage country and bluegrass.
