Bluegrass on the River
Bluegrass on the River with Sanctum Sully and special guests Bobby Miller & The Virginia Daredevils sponsored by RiverLink. There will be beer from New Belgium, food trucks, live music from local and national acts, and the waters of the beautiful French Broad flowing right by the stage. Officially known as “RiverLink's RiverMUSIC Presented by New Belgium Brewing," the series will consist of five concerts at the RiverLink Sculpture and Performance Plaza, 117 Riverside Dr.
Inspired by a grant from the Chaddick Foundation, RiverMUSIC is also sponsored by Pisgah Investments. New Belgium signed on as primary sponsor and will have a presence and supply beer at all the events. Attendees will be encouraged to leave their cars at home and get to the concerts via alternative modes of transportation. Asheville on Bikes will provide a bike corral for stowing bicycles. There is also a paddle-up option. Paddlers can easily float to the concerts or to nearby Jean Webb Park, a takeout point beneath the RiverLink Bridge, where they can lock their boats and walk to the concerts.
RiverLink is the regional non-profit working to revitalize the French Broad River and its tributaries as a place for everyone to live, work and play. RiverLink will be recruiting volunteers to do everything from sorting recycling to parking cars to pouring beer.
