The Dollar Brothers and Thistle Dew take the stage this afternoon with traditional to innovative renditions of timeless mountain music.
The Orchard at Altapass, a nonprofit working orchard, entertainment, and educational venue, presents live traditional music every weekend from May through October. Dancing is encouraged. Got two left feet? Performing artists offer free clogging and two-step demonstrations between sets to help get you on the dance floor.
All are welcome to an afternoon of music and dancing. Come early and meander through the General Store, grab a bite to eat at the Apple Core Grill, or take a hike through the orchard on one of the ten walking trails. The Orchard—a musical destination at mile marker 328.3 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. There's always something exciting going on.
Oh, and from late June ... apples, apples, apples. Open 10 to 5 p.m. Wed-Sun, through October.
