Mount Airy Bluegrass Festival
June 30 @ 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The ticketed event will be held at historic Mount Airy on Saturday afternoon, June 30th at 3pm with music by local Rappahannock pickers, THE WATER VIEW BLUEGRASS ASSEMBLY followed by North Carolina’s THE TRAILBLAZERS with special guest IVY PHILLIPS, winner of the 2017 Galax Bluegrass Fiddle Contest. The Trailblazers also won the band competition at Merlefest last year and are not to be missed as up-and-coming performers.
At 5pm, things really get rolling when Grammy Award winning artist RALPH STANLEY II & THE CLINCH MOUNTAIN BOYS take to the stage behind a new self-titled album currently burning up the Bluegrass charts. At 7pm legendary Grammy Award nominees THE SELDOM SCENE close out the day with a special return appearance to Warsaw.
Bluegrass fans from across the Mid-Atlantic region are expected to attend the independence week event at Mount Airy so get your tickets early. Last year’s show sold out very quickly.
The bluegrass festival will take place on the intimate bowling-green lawns of the historic Mount Airy estate with only a limited number of tickets available. Attendees are asked to bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on. A special VIP ticket includes VIP parking and a reserved seat up front close to the stage.
Delicious BBQ, Hubs Virginia peanuts and other fine foods as well Virginia-made craft ales by Champion Brewing Company will be available for purchase.
A portion of the proceeds from the festival will be donated to Friends of the Rappahannock.
