Old Time Concert Series at Humpback Rocks Visitor Center. 2PM to 4PM. The Blue Ridge Parkway concerts highlight mountain music. Since there was no radio or television in mountain living, music was the means of entertainment. People told stories of hardships and comforts through the instruments they played, the movements of their dances and the lyrics of their songs. Mountain music was more than just tunes. It was life stories backed up with beautiful instruments like the autoharp, guitar, bass, banjo and fiddle. Live music performers: June 16 The McKenzies, July 7 The Farm Use String Band, July 21 Sunnyside, August 4 The Last Minute Band, August 18 Grassy Ridge, September 1 Blue Mountain Sunrise, September 15 Uncle Henry’s Favorites. All concerts are free and open to the public. Please bring a chair. If weather is questionable, please call the Visitors’ Center at 540-943-4716. Sponsored by the Friends of the Blue Ridge Parkway. More information email humpback@friendsbrp.org Milepost 5.8 Blue Ridge Parkway, Afton, VA, 22920.
