Folk Music Festival will be held in Virginia

41 Blue Ridge Folk Festival will be held October 25 in Virginia, designed to preserve the authenticity of the local folk music.


The event will take place on the campus of Ferrum in Ferrum, Virginia. More than 20 bands will perform throughout the day. Among them – the performers of sacred music, string orchestra and jazz bands.

Guests can enjoy local cuisine and dance folk dances. Also during the festival there will be seminars and workshops.

Founder Roddy Moore said that the centuries-old musical tradition of the Blue Ridge Mountains population was the reason that he initiated the event.

Tickets for the festival are $ 10 for adults and $ 5 for children and seniors.
