How the American Roots Music Summer Concert Series Got Started
The Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia has always known that visitors greatly enjoy the occasional Roots fiddler, banjoist, or guitarist. After all, music is very much a part of early American cultural history.
But how to reach more people with this music? That’s when the American Roots Music Summer Concert Series came to life four years ago.
Now, every Sunday evening in August from 5:00 p.m. -7:00 p.m., the Museum sets up their pavilion with tables and chairs for a casual dinner theater-like experience. And music lovers toe-tap, dance, and enjoy the music America was built upon.
