You can’t get much more American than bluegrass music on a farm. Make plans to hitch up the team and head to Frying Pan Farm Park this season for Bluegrass Barn, a celebration of some of the best bluegrass music in the mid-Atlantic area.
Tighten up some vocal harmonies and mix them with a fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar and upright bass and you’ll be tapping toes and slapping legs all through the evening with Sideline, Carolina Blue and other talented groups.
The concerts are held indoors, on select Sunday evenings at Frying Pan Farm Park Visitor Center from November through April. Show dates are November 10, 2019 with Sideline, November 24 with Danny Paisley and The Southern Grass, January 12, 2020 with Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper, followed by Carolina Blue February 9, Chris Jones & the Night Drivers March 15, and finish up the series with Troy Engle & The Southern Skies April 5.
Tickets for all shows are $18 in advance, $20 at the door. Purchase tickets online at Frying Pan Park or by phone at 703-222-4664 or 703-437-9101. Frying Pan Farm Park Visitor Center is at 2739 West Ox Road in Herndon, Va., not far off the Fairfax County Parkway.
Bluegrass Barn is made possible through the support of Vienna Hardwoods, John and Sandy Herring, Linda and Van Hubbard, the Fairfax County Park Foundation and the Fairfax County Park Authority.
