Join us for one of most popular outdoor music series in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina! The historic Old Hampton Store (77 Ruffin St, Linville) has plenty of live music year round inside their restaurant and tavern. During the summer and fall (Memorial Day through October), they have a big Thursday Night concert series. While it is free to attend, all donations collected are given to Feeding Avery Families!
Gather just behind the store under the big trees and strung lights to enjoy a variety of musicians and bands on the pavilion stage. Outside seating is available, or bring your chair or blanket to guarantee a spot. There’s indoor seating too. Music starts around 6 PM – ranging from bluegrass to blues to classic rock. It’s all music you can dance to!
Come hungry to enjoy Old Hampton Store’s fantastic food – including their popular hand-pulled pork, smoked chicken and turkey and plenty of homemade sides. Also enjoy local beer, fine wine, craft cocktails and old fashioned sodas.
Carpooling is encouraged. On busy nights, find overflow parking with a frequent shuttle near the intersection of Ruffin St & Joe Hartley Road. No outside food, beverages, or containers allowed. It’s definitely kid friendly! Well-behaved dogs are welcome outside on leashes.
