Nelson County, VA
For the 8th year in a row the mountains and valleys will be full familiar music native to the Blue Ridge.
“Drawing on a Scots-Irish heritage, the Blue Ridge settlers added voices from Africa and, in a unique medley of fiddle, banjo, bass and guitar, sang of America. This region has spawned old time, bluegrass and Americana musical forms. Join us to enjoy this uniquely American sound on Saturday, August 17, 2013 when Wintergreen Performing Arts will present the voices of the Blue Ridge through its 8th Annual Blue Ridge Mountain Music Fest.”
For over 5 years Blue Ridge Life Magazine Publisher, Tommy Stafford has emceed the daylong event. He’s back this year for the festival that kicks off at noon and runs until roughly 7PM. It’s being held in big tent (formerly the Evans Center) just down from the Skyline Pavilion.
