Make live music part of your next getaway to the Roanoke Valley in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains.

Great artists and bands are on the calendar throughout the month at venues across the region, include the major civic centers, smaller venues & performance halls, and craft breweries.

Live music is a major part of the local arts & culture scene in the region, and it’s part of why Roanoke is earning a reputation as “Virginia’s Music City.”

A few highlights on this month’s calendar include An Evening with Dailey & Vincent at Franklin County High School on March 9, the St. Patrick’s Day Block Party at Martin’s Downtown Bar & Grill on March 17, and Cole Swindell at Berglund Center on March 23.
