What a great music show! Tickets are $20-25 for a 2.5 hour show of 5-6 performers. This is the place to be for a sample of Appalachia.

Mountain Stage has a unique ability to attract and sometimes discover a broad range of diverse talent and weave it into a memorable show. You don't even need to know who is coming as the show never fails to entertain. First Class Professional Entertainment!
