DAILY TUNES: The Outdoor Music Scene Linville Falls Winery’s Weekend Music Series, this Saturday and Sunday: Smokin’ Joe Band and the Harris Brothers



By Elly Murray

Daily Tunes will be bringing you live music performances in the High Country area for every day of the week. Get out there and enjoy the cool breezes and relaxing music of summer before it’s over!

In Lower Avery, Music at the Linville Falls Winery will have thirty different bands playing live music every Saturday and Sunday from 3 to 6 p.m. The concerts take place in the beautiful forty-acre vineyard and are completely free of charge.

The musicians perform in an open air Tuscan style building, and quite a bit of the crowd leaks out onto the elegant vineyard grounds. The kids dart among the rows of grapes and other assorted fruits, and the Wisemans, the family that has been a part of Avery County for hundreds of years, watch proudly as patrons enjoy their vineyard music. The vineyard is located in a valley, and you need only tip your head up to gaze at the powerful, alluring mountains that we call home.

Performing this Saturday is local favorite, the Smokin’ Joe Band. They’re an incredible blues and rock band based out of West Sussex, and their performances are an experience like no other.

This Sunday, the Harris Brothers will take the stage at the Linville Falls Winery. This real brother duo from Western North Carolina performs a wide variety of genres, including roots, rock and roll, jazz, blues, Appalachian mountain music, country, and bluegrass

The Linville Falls Winery usually has food vendors come and set up on big weekends like these, but they’re kind enough to allow outside food as well. Dogs are also allowed at the Winery, but must be on a leash, so feel free to bring your furry pal along.

Next week, the Linville Falls Winery will have a special Fourth of July performance from Tom Pillion, beginning at 3 p.m. Be sure to check it out!

There’s so many of these vineyard concerts this summer that you must attend at least one, to enjoy music from astounding musicians and allow yourself a night of relaxation.
