  • If you are in the area of the Appalachians and searched places where they sound the three days between Monday and Wednesday are a pain. The music can be found almost anywhere. This center was no exception, so it pays to plan to arrive in the afternoon (not late). The concert was, among other things. Check online or at any rate.

  • My bluegrass knowledge is extremely limited, but I can say I learned quite a bit after 2-3 hours in the Blue Ridge Music Center museum. Lots of displays, music, and video presentations give you the lowdown on the history of Bluegrass music. Even if you're not a fan of bluegrass music itself, the history alone is worth checking out. Sadly, I visited on a Sunday morning and no live music was happening then. I would come again for a show.
  • The center is nestled in a beautiful valley, complete with a nice gift shop, great museum, and live music on the weekends. Exceeded my expectations as a non-music guy.
  • Bought 2 Season ticket, best deal ever. Made lt to three....all fabulous, weather perfect, every attendee more enthusiastic then the other. STEEP CANYON RANGER WERE GREAT, GOD NIGHT FOR "RADIO" PURE 10. This year 4 season tickets........oh yeah!!!!
  • Great venue, great acts, in a unique setting.
  • Premier place to see live traditional music. Great historic museum.
