On Saturday, December 3rd, Mountain Home Music will celebrate the season with its annual presentation of An Appalachian Christmas. The concert will be at Grace Lutheran Church in downtown Boone. Starting time is 8:00.

Performers will include David Johnson, a member of the Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame; two-time national banjo champion, Steve Lewis; Henderson Festival Mandolin Champion, Scott Freeman; bass player, Josh Scott; and others.

“We conclude our concert season each year with a free community concert,” said Joe Shannon, founder and host of Mountain Home Music. “No admission is taken, but we pass the hat, and one hundred percent of the proceeds are given to The Hospitality House and Santa’s Toy Box. We’ve done this for 16-years; it’s a great way to end the year.”

An Appalachian Christmas blends Appalachian fiddle tunes; country music, Christmas classics; classical music, season hymns and congregational singing.”

Grace Lutheran Church is located on the corner of Council Street and East King Street, which is also the intersection of US 321 and US 421. The address is 115 East King Street, Boone, North Carolina.

For parking, there is one parking lot beside the church and two parking lots behind the church.
For more information, go to or call (828) 964-3392.

The purpose of Mountain Home Music is to honor the music and the musicians of the Appalachian region.

Mountain Home Music is affiliated with the Blue Ridge Music Trails, a project of the North Carolina Arts Council.
