While 'An Appalachian Evening' is the centerpiece of music at Stecoah Valley Center, our fall Harvest Festival also concludes with a Saturday evening concert.

The 2015 Harvest Festival concert will feature The Cleverlys, a highly comedic band that pokes fun at mainstream hits via a bluegrass treatment. Band website

The Grand Old Stage
In the 1940-1950 era, the auditorium stage became home to musicians touring the mountain area – musicians heard on the "Mid Day Merry Go Round," a popular WNOX-Knoxville radio program.

The Center’s stage has been graced with the top bluegrass performers of that time – Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, Bill Monroe, The Carter Family, Chet Atkins, Bonnie Lou and Buster, Archie Campbell, Carl Story, Elmer Jethro, Martha Carson and the Brewster Brothers.

It seems these musicians charged little or nothing for admission and put on a great show to a full house! Today’s performers follow in the footsteps of these great musicians and the smaller footprints of the many school children that have performed on this stage as well.

Enjoy a Dinner and a Show
Before each 'An Appalachian Evening' concert, you can purchase a home-cooked Appalachian Dinner in the Schoolhouse Cafe from 6 to 7:30.

Other Saturday evening cafe offerings include BBQ sandwich, hot dogs, Yellow Branch cheese and fruit plate, ice cream, homemade desserts, snacks and assorted drinks.
