New River Celtic Music Weekend

Looking for a relaxing weekend away from the heat? On June 4 & 5, the sounds of Celtic music flow beside one of the oldest rivers in the world.

Located at River House Inn in Grassy Creek, NC (off Hwy 16, north of Jefferson) you will be able to take in the tunes of Celtic inspired music being performed along with a unique menu featuring Celtic dishes and even a Scotch tasting.

On Saturday June 4, the event starts at 5pm at River House with music and stories from our guest artists. Dinner will be served at 6:30 followed by more entertainment at 8pm. Artists scheduled to appear start with a duo from Charlotte, The Thistledown Tinkers, playing traditional Scottish and Irish tunes featuring fiddle and guitar.

Also, regional musician and historian, RG Absher will be presenting Celtic music with an Appalachian twist and talking about the Scots-Irish influence on the development of this region, especially during the War of Independence.  He will be performing some old tunes on fiddle and other instruments from the era.
