Saturdays in the Park is a free concert series presented by the Alleghany Arts Council in Sparta, NC. Concerts are on the last Saturday of the month from June – September.
Upcoming 2022 Bluegrass and Old-Time bands include:
- August 27 – Nu-Blue (Bluegrass) After releasing four Top Ten Billboard albums, North Carolina based Nu-Blu has quickly established themselves as one of the top Acoustic acts in the music industry, delivering a set of songs that range from the melancholy to the exuberant, and at every step they prove they’ve got a knack for finding their way into the deeper parts of you.
- September 24 – Big Daddy Love (Rock, bluegrass, southern soul) Their music has been described as “a blend of rock, bluegrass, southern soul, and psychedelic jams.” One reviewer characterized them as “a band with teeth” (fortunately in both a literal and metaphorical sense). Identifying a single genre for Big Daddy Love is nearly impossible; all four members are comfortable playing almost any type of American music. Collaboratively, the band produces a unique sound that they have long referred to as “Appalachian Rock.”
