Held on the last three Saturday evenings in January 2020, this series brings together a diverse group of musicians from across North Carolina playing old-time, bluegrass, folk, Americana, blues, and gospel music. All concerts will take place in the Willingham Theater at the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center in Yadkinville, N.C.
Sounds of the Mountains is part of the Blue Ridge Music Center’s On the Road series of concerts and events hosted in partnership with regional arts and cultural organizations while the venue is closed for winter and spring. These shows bring the living musical and cultural traditions of the Blue Ridge Mountains off the hilltops and into other communities in North Carolina and Virginia.
This year’s Sounds of the Mountains artist for January 25:
- The Allen Boys + Dedicated Men of Zion, Come on out for a night of Southern gospel and soul featuring the sacred steel-led rhythms of The Allen Boys and harmonies of the Dedicated Men of Zion. Sacred steel is a blues-gospel genre that arose in Pentecostal-Holiness churches in the 1930s. The Allen Boys, from Mount Airy, North Carolina, bring the genre to the secular world. Led by Anthony Daniels, the members of the gospel vocal group the Dedicated Men of Zion all grew up in the church together in Eastern North Carolina. They are part of the Music Maker Relief Foundation’s artist roster.
