Hundreds packed inside The Evans Center at Wintergreen Resort this past weekend for the 4th Annual Blue Ridge Mountain Music Festival. The overflow crowd spilled out to the mountainside near the tent to get a listen. The day long event put on by Wintergreen Performing Arts including several different bands performing bluegrass, some gospel, folk and Americana styles of music.

The New North Carolina Ramblers take the stage at the festival. Anchestors of the original group go back to the early part of last century.
