James Monroe’s Highland, in partnership with The Front Porch, will host the 3rd annual Tuesday Tunes, a five-part series of sunset concerts at the home of President James Monroe. These performances are a perfect opportunity to bring the family out with blanket and chairs in tow to enjoy music from Virginia and the mid-Atlantic region!
The fourth concert in the series will take place on August 8, from 6:00-9:00 p.m., with music by Gallatin Canyon.
Local food and alcohol vendors will be on-site. Guests are encouraged to buy or pack a picnic and experience the beauty of James Monroe’s Highland at dusk.
Tickets are $8 per person or $10 at the door. Family tickets are $20 per household or $25 at the door. Children 12 and under are free. Tickets are available online in advance at the Front Porch website (link below). All ticket proceeds benefit educational programming at James Monroe’s Highland and local roots music school The Front Porch.
About Gallatin Canyon
Despite its Montana namesake, Gallatin Canyon is a Charlottesville, Virginia-based bluegrass band. True to its Virginia roots, the band specializes in traditional bluegrass music with a refreshing, modern sensibility. Nodding to the bluegrass past with a traditional spin, the band is also known for rebooting many favorites from the country and classic rock genres. So if traditional bluegrass isn’t your cup of bourbon, don’t worry — you’re likely to hear a few familiar, creatively-arranged classic rock and country covers too.
