The Patrick County Chamber of Commerce will host a block party on Thursday, June 16, featuring the return of Larry Sigmon, legendary claw-hammer banjo-picker, and the Unique Sounds of the Mountains.
“We are very excited that our June Block Party has once again been included in the Crooked Road’s Mountains of Music Homecoming,” said Tim Collins, chamber director.
A nine-day celebration of Southwest Virginia’s heritage and music, the Crooked Road’s inaugural Mountains of Music Homecoming will take place through June 18, in cities and towns across the 8,600-square-mile Crooked Road Region. More than 200 artists will perform in more than 30 different concerts.
The chamber of commerce will be “putting our best food forward,” Collins said, in hosting the block party, presented by Branch Highways. Local bluegrass and traditional music will get “your toes tapping,” he said.
Mike Gravely of Outdoor Entertainment LLC will have more than $50,000 in inflatables set up at the block party for the kids.
There will also be food, drinks, beer and wine.
The event will be held at Stonewall Court from 6 to 9 p.m.
