Thursday Night Live Music

Thursday, December 29

Start your evening at Winter Wander Trail of Lights followed by a hard-hitting night of live music in The Pavilion at Boar’s Head Resort. The night's headliner will include the rapid-fire picking melodies from the Jon Stickley Trio (pictured). With a heavy emphasis on bluegrass, the Trio also brings a steady dose of of gypsy jazz and folk punk. The opening act will be Songs from the Road Band, an Ashville-based bluegrass super group. Not your ordinary garage band, several of their most recent singles have gone to the top of the Bluegrass Today Grassicana chart.  This two-band performance will have you toe tapping and singing throughout the night.

The bands will perform live from 8-11 p.m. Winter Wander is open from 5-9 p.m., and all concert tickets include complimentary Winter Wander access. Enjoy the lights, food and drinks before the show!
