Wassails to Hoedowns: Holiday Music in Virginia


Art Museums Admission Required

Event Ticket Required

Since 1607, Virginia has celebrated the Christmas holidays with music and dance. Songs and customs brought over in colonial times evolved in the hills and hollows of Appalachia, where the music of the British Isles blended with African rhythms and instruments, leading to country music. And carols and tunes from other parts of Europe joined the chorus. Join Henley Fork—featuring Doug Austin, Brian Forsman, Lynn and Barry Trott, and special guest Lee Welch—for a musical journey across four centuries of Virginia holiday music and traditions.
