The Blue Ridge Music Center is a state-of-the-art performing arts facility built to preserve and promote the historic music of Virginia and the Blue Ridge. The Blue Ridge region has produced more old-time and bluegrass musicians per capita than any other and it is the epicenter or heart of many of America’s living music traditions.
Well-known local musicians volunteer their time to share the music they love with visitors, inviting those who can pick a tune to join them as well. Listeners relax in rocking chairs and enjoy both the music and the scenic view of Fisher Peak.
What to Do:
- Explore the visitor center as well as permanent and changing exhibits that trace the diversity of American roots music to the region
- Experience the region’s musical traditions through live performances – past performances include Doc Watson, Ricky Skaggs, Del McCoury and Ralph Stanley
- Enjoy music at a 3,000-seat capacity outdoor amphitheater with state-of-the-art sound and lights
- Discover an indoor theater for films and more intimate performance talks, and a shop for instrument construction
