Get ready for a mid-summer evening of great musical entertainment on the Hall House lawn, presented by Historic Salisbury Foundation. Located in the heart of West Square, the treasured Hall House will be the place to meet friends and neighbors for a family friendly concert of Bluegrass music. Bring along your blankets or lawn chairs and food to munch on, sit back, relax and let some of the best Bluegrass musicians around entertain you.
If you have ever stopped by the Montgomery General Store in Historic Gold Hill on a Friday night, you may be familiar with Vivian Hopkins and Montgomery & Co. Helping to keep traditional music alive in our area, Vivian, president of the NC Bluegrass Association, will play with her band and will also introduce an impressive lineup of musicians, young and not so young!
Tap your feet to the sounds of Jonah Riddle and Carolina Express from Burnsville. Pack your favorite drink to sip while you listen to Carrie and Eric Webster, owners of Carolina Folkworks in Salisbury. Some of their students will also be showcased during the concert including local favorites, the Bemus Kids.
