The Monday Night Concert Series will begin its 22nd season in Blowing Rock, NC on July 11th. Concerts are held weekly, beginning July 11th and running through August 8th. The Monday Night Concert Series began as a spin off of the Farm House Inn and Restaurant that was located in Blowing Rock from the 1950's until 1997. The mission of the Monday Night Concert Series is to support rising talent and to share a variety of music with residents and visitors to the town of Blowing Rock in memory of the Farm House and its creators, EJ and Shirl Blackwell.
