Summer Concerts at the Blowing Rock Art & History Museum

BRAHM  Summer Concert Series features old-time and Irish fiddling to classical violin playing, there’s a little something for everyone.

Concerts are on Sundays from 4 p.m. until approximately 6 p.m. They take place in our intimate Atrium, which seats 60 guests. Seating is first come, first served and the museum opens at 1 p.m. on Sundays during the summer. Each concert will have an intermission, during which drinks and locally farmed light refreshments will be available. The food will be provided by the generosity of Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture.

2018 Upcoming Concerts:

  • August 19 - Cane Mill Road (Bluegrass, Old-time, Americana, Folk)
  • Billboard-charting band Cane Mill Road rocks the bluegrass they grew up on, yet boldly tackles the Beatles, Dylan, Gordon Lightfoot, and more. Growing up just down the road from Doc Watson, the band honors the past, but looks to the future blending music that walks the lines between Bluegrass, Old-time, Americana, and Folk. The band’s debut album hit #9 on Billboard’s Bluegrass Album chart. IBMA selected Cane Mill Road from hundreds of applicants as one of 30 bands to showcase during its 2017 conference/festival as the future of bluegrass. Audiences love Cane Mill Road’s high-energy performances, easy going rapport both on and off stage, and the eclectic mix of originals and standards in the show.
  • September 9 - Alexa Rose (Old-time, Americana)
  • Alexa Rose has the rare ability to find strikingly original melodies that nevertheless sound like they must have existed for a long time, stored away maybe in the ether of creativity, self-evident and awaiting discovery. Moving deftly between complex dexterity and heart-tugging familiarity, Rose achieves a sound that pushes gently alongside the bright vocal experimentalism of Joni Mitchell and Joanna Newsom while maintaining the brassy attitude and simple refrains that run straight through American roots music from mountain ballads to rock n roll.
