About Mountain Home Music:
Founded by Joe Shannon, this concert series is in its 29th year. Its mission is to honor the songs, stories, and dance of the Appalachian culture and to provide comfortable venues for both musicians and audiences. 

About matinees: We are a nonprofit 501 c-3 educational corporation, which has in the past produced 18 – 20 concerts a year. We began our matinees (which was an idea from Joe Shannon, our founder) to accommodate senior communities, assisted living facilities, and anyone who prefers afternoon performances.    

About access to our venues: Our matinees are presented in comfortable and accessible indoor settings with easy access and ample parking for buses. The matinees will be presented in Boone and West Jefferson with plenty of other sights to see nearby and lots of delicious restaurants to choose from. 

About cost and reservations:  Mountain Home Music Matinees are “Pay as you Exit.” If you enjoyed the concert, please support us and our musicians. We suggested a donation of $10, but Mountain Home Music and our artists appreciate anything that you can give. We never ask any artist to play for free, so we sincerely appreciate your support. We hope you have a great time and leave each program with a smile!
