2022 An Appalachian Evening concerts:
The Grand Old Stage
In the 1940-1950 era, the auditorium stage became home to musicians touring the mountain area – musicians heard on the "Mid Day Merry Go Round," a popular WNOX-Knoxville radio program.
The Center’s stage has been graced with the top bluegrass performers of that time – Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, Bill Monroe, The Carter Family, Chet Atkins, Bonnie Lou and Buster, Archie Campbell, Carl Story, Elmer Jethro, Martha Carson and the Brewster Brothers.
It seems these musicians charged little or nothing for admission and put on a great show to a full house! Today’s performers follow in the footsteps of these great musicians and the smaller footprints of the many school children that have performed on this stage as well.
The Cafe is open for snacks and beverages, prior to each Saturday performance and thru intermission.
Blue Ridge Music Trails book plus 27-song CD ($20) is available in the Stecoah Artisans Gallery.
We commit to the well-being of our visitors and employees. Based on current guidance from the CDC, we recommend wearing a face mask while attending indoor concerts. Stecoah Valley Center’s COVID-19 Safety Policies are informed by the CDC. As a public facing facility, these policies will undergo ongoing review based on the best practices presented to protect our community, staff, volunteers and guests.
