Aug 6: Roots Music - Whitetop Mountain Band
The American Roots Music Concert Series returns for in 2017 with four outstanding dinner-concert events featuring traditional Appalachian, bluegrass, blues, gospel, and old-time music.
The Whitetop Mountain Band is a family-based band from the highest mountains of Virginia. Whitetop, Virginia is an area rich in the old time music tradition; this band has deep roots in mountain music. The members have done much to preserve the Whitetop region’s style of old time fiddling and banjo picking and are legendary musicians and teachers of the style.
The concert series celebrates the influence of these musical roots genres on American frontier culture. The event provides a casual environment, and features dinner theater seating with food & beverage vendors under the Lee S. Cochran Pavilion.
