Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and musician Marty Stuart will headline the event with his band, the Fabulous Superlatives. Folk Soul Revival and the Virginia Luthiers Band will also perform, and tickets are on sale now.
Established by Jay and Carol Dixon and the Southwest Virginia Community Foundation, the event aims to preserve and perpetuate the heritage of the Appalachian region through its music. Five performers will take the stage throughout the fast-paced, fun-filled evening.
Community members are invited to celebrate Christmas a little early this weekend at the Carter Fold. The center’s popular Christmas program will return for another year on Saturday and will feature Christmas decorations and a live performance by the Scott County JAM Band.

The Carter Family Fold will present a concert by the New Ballard’s Branch Bogtrotters, an old time band on Saturday, Nov. 21.
