Free Concerts on the River Every Saturday Night, June Through October

In 2017, we're moving the 'Music in the Mountains' free Saturday concerts from the train depot to Riverfront Park. The newly named 'Tunes on the Tuck' location has a large, grassy lawn for music-lovers with a covered pavillion for the entertainers. Enjoy your supper at one of the riverside picnic tables or on the grass. Bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on (we hope to have $1 chair rentals). The whole family will enjoy this relaxed, evening event.

What type of music will you hear? “We've got local and regional favorites playing everything from old-time country to bluegrass, to rock and roll,” said Swain County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Karen Wilmot. “It’s a great opportunity to enjoy the local sounds while enjoying the evening in beautiful downtown Bryson City.”
