The Barrier Islands Center Presents Art and Music on the Farm 2017
Barrier Islands Center’s Art and Music on the Farm festival offers fine art and treasures from local artists and artisans, as well as traditional roots music played by celebrated musicians from across Virginia, all in an inviting, family-friendly setting.
Everyone will revel in the toe-tapping, hand-clapping sounds of mountain stringband, folk, bluegrass and gospel from this year’s line-up of highly acclaimed Virginia bands. And, don’t forget the intimate workshops with the performers, hosted by music historian Gregg Kimball.
In addition to the music, the Farm is filled with some of the finest art in the region: over 50 artists and artisans will have their paintings, plants and crafts for sale. There are also food and beverages (including local wine, beer, soft drinks and iced coffee) available for purchase. Children can participate in a free and fun art activity.
So, bring your friends and family to start off summer with a glorious celebration of Virginia’s rich heritage of art and music at one of the loveliest venues on the Eastern Shore!
