Join us for the first concert of our newest music series, Tar Heel Troubadours, a celebration of Americana, roots, bluegrass, and traditional music performed by artists from or living and working in North Carolina.

A music performance at the North Carolina Museum of History is unlike any other! You’ll enjoy an intimate experience with an artist in our 300-seat venue. Every seat in the house has a fantastic view, and the sound is exceptional. The evening is complete with merchandise and a bar with a special beer from Fullsteam Brewery plus wine.

Our Tar Heel Troubadours series works to keep music accessible to our community by keeping ticket prices affordable. There are nine concerts in total for this series, including Jim Lauderdale, Fireside Collective, Dawn Landes, Cane Mill Road, Blue Cactus, Paige King Johnson, the Blue Ridge Girls, and more. Visit the museum’s website for up-to-date information and tickets.

The Blue Ridge Girls, like their name, invoke a picturesque simplicity with their take on traditional mountain music. The trio of Martha Spencer, Jamie Collins, and Brett Morris features a variety of old-time, bluegrass, and country songs. They showcase their original songwriting and unique take on other familiar crowd-pleasers. All three women grew up in musical families; they are working to preserve and promote the Blue Ridge’s rich musical heritage. After signing with 629 Music Group in 2022, they went to Muscle Shoals, Alabama, to record at the historic Muscle Shoals Sound Studio. They stay busy writing, recording, touring, and sharing their musical talents across the globe. They will have their first single release on September 15!
