Music in the Mountains, Humpback Rocks Concerts
August 18 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
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. 2019 Schedule is as follows: May 26 The Bill Wellington Band June 2 Jubilo June 16 The McKenzies July 7 The Farm Use String Band July 21 SunnySide Aug 4 The Last Minute Band Aug 18 Grassy Ridge Sept 1 Blue Mountain Sunrise Sept 15 Uncle Henry’s Favorites]]>
