Live music takes center stage this February in the Roanoke Valley in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains.

The winter is a great time of year to experience the arts & culture scene in the region as many of our music and performing arts venues pack the calendar with events, concerts, and shows. You can also warm up with a visit to any of our local craft breweries, which regularly feature live music.

Jam out with Broccoli Samurai (February 23) at Martin’s Downtown Bar & Grill, listen to the soothing voice of Michael McDonald (February 12) at the Harvester Performance Center, and be mesmerized by the instrumental skills of Vieux Farka Toure (February 28) at 5 Points Music Sanctuary
