singing in the rain

Blue Ridge Music Center
The beautiful amphitheater at the Blue Ridge Music Center (at mile marker 213 on the Blue Ridge Parkway) - looking over the mountains, country music under the stars, only $20 to see Ricky Skaggs perform, well it sounded like a good idea at the time...

The closer it got to 7 p.m. the darker the clouds became, the folks in charge were watching the radar backstage…

They came out and said we had 2 options, move the entire show over to the Ruritan Center or stay here, the 700+ fans overwhelmingly voted to stay.

The first act of local boys came out - Scott Freeman and Friends - and played, scooting their equipment back to avoid the blowing rain.

Ricky Skaggs

Then Ricky Skaggs and his band Kentucky Thunder came out, he said he would do his impression of Gene Kelley…

Even with umbrellas everyone got thoroughly soaked, but it was not too cold and the music was great!
