The Blue Ridge Music Center is where harmony & heritage unite.


The Blue Ridge Music Center’s Visitor Center is closed for the season.

The Blue Ridge Music Center’s Visitor Center, which houses the Roots of American Music Museum Exhibit and a gift shop, is typically open early May through October. Check back in the spring for the reopening date.

Midday Mountain Music, a FREE informal music presentation by local and regional musicians, in our covered, open-air breezeway, also returns when the Music Center opens in May.

From Memorial Day through Labor Day, we also have ticketed concerts in our amphitheater on Saturday evenings. The concert lineup will be announced in mid March.

We have several On The Road events coming up this winter, including the January Sounds of the Mountains concert series we offer in partnership with Yadkinville Arts.

Blue Ridge Music Center


The sounds of the fiddle, banjo, and guitar welcome you when you visit. We invite you to clap along to bluegrass, old-time, blues, and Americana concerts in our scenic amphitheater, learn about the region’s musical heritage at the Roots of American Music Museum, sit a spell on the breezeway while you enjoy live music everyday during our Midday Mountain Music sessions, and go for a walk on one of our hiking trails.

While the Music Center is open May through October, the music continues year-round with our On the Road series, when we partner with regional venues to host off-site performances, exhibits, conferences, and additional events.
