Great Smoky Mountains Music Of The Mountains Event will be held Saturday, September 7, 2019 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This fun, free family event will feature traditional mountain music, sing alongs, storytelling and clogging.

HeySmokies’ friends Boogertown Gap will be performing in a must see performance. Boogertown will also be demonstrating how to play not so everyday instruments of Appalachia like wash tubs, spoons and wash boards. Plan on trying your had at making music with them at the “instrument petting zoo” between 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Children will have a chance to show their creativity making their very own instruments.

We are excited to host some of the best and most knowledgeable musicians, dancers, and storytellers for a day of fun and hands-on education,” said Stephanie Sutton, Supervisory Park Ranger.

Our friends Boogertown Gap will be performing. Don't miss it!
