Don't miss our exiting lineup for the 2018 Summer Concert Season. Featuring acts like Rhiannon Giddens, Steep Canyon Rangers and The Barefoot Movement, this series promises a mix of music, merriment and magic. The sounds of the fiddle, banjo, and guitar are likely to welcome you when you visit the Blue Ridge Music Center. Experience regional traditional music each day of the week with FREE local Mid-Day Mountain Musicians playing on the breezeway of the visitors center from Noon - 4 PM. The Music Center hosts a summer Roots of American Music Concert Series. Concerts take place in our beautiful outdoor amphitheater (capacity 2,500) at the base of Fisher Peak, feature local, regional, and national touring performers and bands, and are presented most Saturday evenings from late May through September. The Music Center is also the home for the FREE state-of-the-art- award-winning, and interactive Roots of American Music Museum Exhibit, and the starting point for two beautiful hiking trails, the easy, family friendly (1.35 miles - one way) High Meadow Trail and the moderate Fisher Peak Loop Trail (2.24 miles). The Blue Ridge Music Center is operated by The National Park Service, and the Music Center's programming is coordinated through a partnership with the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation.
