Blue Grass Music Venues
Old time folk music in the Appalachian Mountains produced the sounds and styling of bluegrass music and as such there are numerous seasonal bluegrass festivals and spots where you can check out old time mountain music on a summer night. Some of the finest bluegrass musicians had humble beginnings jamming with area old timers, church congregations and families and as such this tradition still carries on. "Porch pickin'" as it is sometimes called by locals is when a group of musicians get together to teach one another and play music together regularly. Years ago, the front porch of someone's home, or the front porch of a general store was often the spot to be if you wanted to enjoy some fantastic bluegrass music.
Our Jefferson Golf Course at Jefferson Landing on the New River is the perfect backdrop for summer nights spent listening to songs of the old country. Mountain Music Jamboree in Glendale Springs is open year around on Saturday nights for bluegrass pickin' and square dancing. Visitors and guests are always welcome. Our locals love to show you how to square dance if you've never tried it and provide endless family fun entertainment. Also, out in Lansing is the old Phipps Country Store. Guests have enjoyed going to the Phipps Country Store for music on Friday nights for many years. Owned by the same family for four generations, Phipps store is a fun spot.
In addition the these locations, Ashe County regularly hosts numerous NC Mountain Festivals that are devoted to bluegrass and the Appalachian music culture. Just a handful of them are Christmas in July, New River Blues Festival, Todd New River Festival, the Ole Belle Reed Homecoming Festival and of course, the Ashe County NC Old Time Bluegrass Fiddlers Convention.
