MP 5.8 – Humpback Rocks Concert

August 2 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Milepost 5.8 – The Blue Ridge Parkway concerts highlight mountain music. Since there was no radio or television in mountain living, music was the means of entertainment. People told stories of hardships and comforts through the instruments they played, the movements of their dances and the lyrics of their songs. Mountain music was more than just tunes. It was life stories backed up with beautiful instruments like the autoharp, guitar, bass, banjo and fiddle. 2020 Schedule is as follows:

August 2, 2020 – The Last Minute Band

August 16, 2020 – Grassy Ridge

September 6, 2020 – Blue Mountain Sunrise

September 20, 2020 – Uncle Henry’s Favorites
