Songwriters Kick Off ‘Art of Music’ Festival

It all starts with a song! And there’s no better way to open the Balsam Range Art Of Music Festival than to gather some of Americana’s most impactful and influential songwriters for a special night of music, fellowship and fun in the historic Hazelwood School.

Join Milan Miller, John Wiggins, Mark Bumgarner and Aaron Bibelhauser with Balsam Range’s Buddy Melton and Darren Nicholson for an evening of original music made by masters of the craft of songwriting. 

“Milan and John were students here and my mother was a teacher at the Hazelwood School, so we all spent a lot of time in the building. We want to help build community around this space, and contribute to the vibrancy of Folkmoot with our music,” said Melton, currently the International Bluegrass Music Association’s reigning top male vocalist. “Y’all come.

A traditional Southern Appalachian barbeque included in the ticket price. Tickets sales and contributions support Folkmoot programs that sustain cultural arts for youth and families in Western North Carolina.

Don’t miss the Balsam Range Art of Music Festival November 30 & December 1, 2018
