Fridays in the Park at Ashe Park

August 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Arts Council programming returns with Fridays in the Park Concert Series at Ashe Park. Every third Friday, May-August, the outdoor concerts will feature well-known local and regional musicians. The concerts are free and start at 7:00 pm. The outdoor concerts will have a limited audience and participants must sign up in advance at www.ashecountyarts.org.

The concert series on August 20, Wayne Henderson from Rugby, VA will bring his musician friends and a surprise guest or two. Wayne specializes in a unique finger-picking style on the guitar and plays a wide range of old-time traditional music. In addition to his reputation as
a guitarist, Henderson is a luthier of great renown. He produces about 15-20 instruments a year with a waiting list of some length.

In partnership with Ashe County Parks and Recreation, the Arts Council will be following COVID-19 protocols with a limited audience, therefore the concerts will require registration signups. The concerts will be pod-based and you will be asked to remain inside your designated area. You may have up to six people in your area and your group must be six feet from the next group. Masks are required outside your pod and must be worn when interacting with volunteers and persons outside your group. Pods spots may be chosen upon arrival on a first come, first served basis.

Fridays in the Park Concert Series is supported by the Ashe County Bluegrass and Old-Time Fiddlers Convention and Ashe County Parks and Recreation and is sponsored by the Ashe Civic Center and the Ashe County Arts Council. Registration is available at www.ashecountyarts.org. For more information call 336-846-2787 or email info@ashecountyarts.org.
