Most of us around here think there is no better place to live, work, play or visit than Blue Ridge. Between the awesome festivals, gourmet food, delicious craft beer, outdoor recreation opportunities and breathtaking scenery there is always something to do. But did you know that Blue Ridge also plays host to some of the most famous musicians in the country?
Well Known Musical Acts in a Small Town
Firefly Music Blue Ridge is creating intimate live music events that transcend anything you’ll ever experience at a typical concert venue. By bringing world-renowned, award-winning musicians into small, intimate settings, Firefly Music Blue Ridge breaks down the normal barriers between artist and fans, uniting them together in a celebration of music and life. Imagine seeing your favorite singers in the comfort of your living room instead of at an arena, and getting to connect on a deep level not only to the music, but with the artist themselves.

Small Venues = An Intimate Music Experience
It’s a simple rule. Big artists normally play big venues. That way they sell more tickets, and they make more money. But not here in Blue Ridge. Here, they play for the love of music, and they play for the fans.
When an artist plays a Firefly Music show they are playing from the heart, and the music means so much more because of that. They see their music being celebrated in such a perfect environment, and they remember why they started making that music in the first place. Attend a Firefly concert and you’ll see the artist and crowd drawing swiftly together in laughter and in song, opening both up to an experience that is unparalleled anywhere else.
You’ll see why numerous artists have proclaimed that Firefly shows are their favorite to play anywhere, and fans say they can’t imagine going to see live music anywhere else.
Making a difference in the community and across the country
Even better than all that? Proceeds from each and every Firefly Music Blue Ridge show are dedicated to a local or national charitable organization, and in just 2 years of operation, Firefly has raised over $60,000 for numerous worthy causes such as the Humane Society of Blue Ridge, Snack In A Backpack, Good Samaritans of Fannin County, multiple scholarship funds, and many more.
The Firefly Music Blue Ridge way of doing things is to provide epic live music experiences in gorgeous, intimate settings, that raise money for wonderful causes which make the world a better place to live in. A simple recipe, in a complicated world.
