Music & Art in the Heart of Appalachia

In this place you'll find music to soothe the soul

Narrow it down.

Use these choices to narrow down the list

On any given night in the Heart of Appalachia, you’ll find music filling the air.

Here you'll find Bluegrass and Old-Time concerts, woven into theatrical performances, or at a weekly jam where, you’d swear, the folks that are playing belong on a stage somewhere.  Bring your own strings and play along.  They’d love to have you!  But it’s plenty fun just to watch, and listen…and maybe someone will teach you how to do some flat-footin’!
