The Annual Music in the Mountains Folk Music Festival is coming to the Burnsville Town Center on Saturday, September 23 from 5:30 to 9:30pm. The Annual Festival, sponsored by the Toe River Arts Council and now in its 32nd year, includes bluegrass and traditional music, ballad singers, and dancing. Instruments range from fiddle to dulcimer to guitar. 

The Burnsville Town Center, only a short, half-block walk from the Town Square, fills with camaraderie as sundown approaches, ending the evening with melody and song. You will always find a surprise or two in our three and a half hour concert.

Music In The Mountains Folk Festival is a tribute to our region’s diverse musical heritage. Our evening celebration of traditional performers is uncommon in diversity and artistic excellence. And, our concert begins just on the heels of the all-day-long “Old Timey Fall Festival” hosted by the Yancey History Association on the Town Square in Burnsville, North Carolina. Let’s bring in the Fall together! Come join us in September!

Tickets will be available later in the year. Please check back for more information as the talent is lined up for this year’s event.
