This year we decided to split our festival into two seasons; summer and fall. We felt this would give our audience an opportunity to enjoy the music in a more leisurely fashion without having to commit to an entire weekend.
We would like to announce that we are bringing back classical music to the Hickory Nut Gorge on October 7th, 2023. We will produce a wonderful evening of chamber music in the style of a "Salon Musique" where you will experience the finest musicianship in an intimate setting. The musicians , Chee-Yun, violin and Wendy Sutter, cello, will not only play, but be in conversation with you as they speak to the inspiration of the music and how they approach playing it. You will get to meet and spend time with some of the finest musicians working in classical music the world over. Right here in Lake Lure!

The annual LAKE LURE MUSIC FESTIVAL started their 2023 season with "Bluegrass on the Lake" on June 10, 2023.
LLMF featured Appalachian Road Show to kick-off the season on the beautiful shores of Lake Lure at Rumbling Bald on Lake Lure Pavilion. There was a sold out crowd enjoying the cool evening of music on the Lake.
Appalachian Road Show is a visionary acoustic ensemble, bringing new-generation interpretations of traditional Americana, bluegrass and folk songs, as well as offering innovative original music, all presented with a common thread tied directly to the heart of the Appalachian regions of the United States. GRAMMY-nominated banjoist Barry Abernathy, joins forces with GRAMMY-winning fiddler Jim VanCleve, fresh off of his recent stint touring with multi-platinum country artist Josh Turner, as well as esteemed vocalist and mandolinist Darrell Webb, who has recorded and toured with Dolly Parton and Rhonda Vincent, among many others. The group also includes 26-year-old “old soul” guitarist Zeb Snyder, whose fierce and versatile playing recalls Doc Watson and Norman Blake as readily as it does Duane Allman and Stevie Ray Vaughn.
In addition to producing great music and bringing renowned musicians to the area, it is also our mission to support organizations performing vital work in our community.
In 2023, the festival will make a generous donation to the Lake Lure Community Education Foundation in support of the LLCA. Their essential work is making a difference to so many lives in our area. We encourage you to support their mission.
Thank you to all our sponsors and our LLMF committee members whose generosity and support make possible this donation.
