UPCOMING EVENTS

Blue Ridge Music Center

THE HOME OF MOUNTAIN MELODIES

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.
