MOUNTAIN SONG festival

Mission statement

Mountain Song Festival was created to bring the best in acoustic music including bluegrass, newgrass, old time, folk, jazz and traditional mountain music, as well as the many branches that stem from it, to our community and to further encourage music in our everyday lives. Mountain Song strives to promote cultural tourism and environmental awareness for a positive impact on our community while utilizing the Brevard Music Center in Brevard, NC, as a world-class venue.

Mountain Song Festival was inspired by our youth and was developed to help fund the Cindy Platt Boys and Girls Club of Transylvania County.

BENEFIT

"The mission of The Cindy Platt Boys & Girls Club is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.  We are more than an after school program, we are a youth development organization serving school-aged youth ages 5 to 18 years old. The Cindy Platt Boys & Girls Club is a positive place for kids and impacts the life of every young person it serves. We provide a safe place to go, a home away from home, where children feel welcomed and where they join together in wholesome recreation and companionship."
