Blue Ridge Music Center

The Blue Ridge Music Center celebrates the music and musicians of the Blue Ridge. Established by the U.S. Congress in 1985, the site includes an outdoor amphitheater and indoor interpretive center used to highlight an important strand of American musical culture, which is still alive and thriving in the region.

Our concert series, performance-talks and new exhibition, The Roots of American Music, traces the history of this music through local artists back to the creation of the music generations ago by persons from Europe and West Africa, and show how it continues to influence many forms of folk and popular music made across America today.
