The Crooked Road’s Mountains of Music Homecoming in June will add a signature culinary and cultural event to its stellar series of events this year. On Friday, June 17, ticket holders will be treated to fresh, local food, the best in regional music, art and artisanship, and enlightening stories of the region’s culinary heritage to celebrate the innovative, creative spirit so characteristic of Appalachia.
Guests will first gather at the William King Museum of Art in Abingdon for appetizers and beverages specifically designed and selected to showcase the finest of Southwest Virginia’s locally grown offerings.
Music for the first part of the special evening will be provided by the Pointer Brothers, an acoustic trio based in Southwest Virginia. Their performances combine bluegrass, country, and folk, spiced with accents of spacegrass and jazz.
After the cocktail hour, guests will travel by Abingdon Town Trolleys to Heartwood, Southwest Virginia’s gateway center for local craft, music, food and local culture.
This special evening of Appalachian creativity will conclude with a concert by the Church Sisters, twins from Galax, Virginia.
Tickets for the entire evening are $85 per person and are available at www.mtnsofmusic.com
