Local music at Lake JunaluskaWritten by Admin
Old-time musicians Trevor and Travis Stuart, natives of Bethel, will perform at this year’s Gather ‘Round the Blue Ridge, the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area annual meeting, which will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Aug. 30, at the Lake Junaluska Conference Center.
The Stuart Brothers have been playing as a duo for more than 20 years and have played for dances, festivals, music camps and concerts throughout the United States, as well as in England, Ireland, Germany and Russia. They also participate in the Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM) program, teaching schoolchildren to play traditional mountain music.
The keynote speaker for the event is Gerard Baker, who until his recent retirement was the highest ranking Native American in the National Park Service.
