New River Community College is located in a region rich in music that has been passed down through generations. Traditional music is as much a source of pride for many area residents as it is a family legacy. Talented musicians - both instrumentally and vocally, crafters of musical instruments and those with a deep appreciation of the music gather monthly at the college for the NRCC Concert Series jamborees. Held since 1991 on the second Saturday of each month between October and April, the free music events have become a gathering of like-minded people who are interested in enjoying, preserving and perpetuating the great old-time and bluegrass music of their ancestors.
The concert series hosts at least one paid concert a year that brings bluegrass and country greats like Rhonda Vincent, Doyle Lawson, Dailey and Vincent, Gene Watson, Marty Stuart, Jimmy Fortune and Vince Gill to the college.
Free Admission to all shows except:
Dailey & Vincent on September 22,
Jimmy Fortune on November 10,
Atlanta Rhythm Section on April 19.
Donations accepted to help pay band expenses.
Music: 6:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
