Mount Airy Bluegrass Festival Saturday, June 30th 2018
We are pleased to announce the date and lineup for this year's Mount Airy Bluegrass Festival located in the Northern Neck of Virginia just outside the town of Warsaw between the twin rivers of the Rappahannock and Potomac. You can buy your tickets here. Thank you for your support!
The music begins at 3pm with music by local Rappahannock pickers, JOSH GRIGSBY & COUNTY LINE 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 as 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 winning artists THE SELDOM SCENE take to the stage with a special return appearance to the Northern Neck.
Bluegrass fans from across the Mid-Atlantic region are expected to attend the Independence Week festival at Mount Airy so get your tickets early. Last year's show sold out very quickly.
Tickets are now available online here or by calling 804-313-0815.
The 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.
Free parking. Gates open at noon. Doors open at 2pm.
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 the local non-profit, Friends of the Rappahannock.
