Back to the Blue Ridge Farewell Show Honoring Kinney Rorrer (Sold Out)
June 24 @ 5:00 pm| $0.00
The Floyd Country Store and WVTF Public Radio Present Back to the Blue Ridge Farewell Show Honoring Kinney Rorrer, Saturday, June 24, 2017 at 5 PM. The show is FREE, but tickets need to be reserved in advance.
You may have heard Kinney Rorrer mention on this week’s Back to the Blue Ridge that he plans to retire in the coming weeks.
This is true. Kinney will record his final show for the weekend of June 17th, and episodes of Back to the Blue Ridge will air in its current timeslots until the weekend of July 8th.
We can’t thank Kinney enough for all he’s done for WVTF RADIO IQ and our listeners, showcasing the most authentic bluegrass and old-time music from around our region each week. We can’t adequately express how much we’ll miss him, the music, and his jokes.
BUT, we’re planning a proper send-off for Kinney and Back to the Blue Ridge.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 24th at the Floyd Country Store at 5 PM. Music provided by Larry Hall & The Virginia Mounaineers & Larry Sigmon & Martha Spencer! Music will start at 6 PM.
The Floyd Country Store has been a proud supporter of Back to the Blue Ridge and are sad to see the program end. But want all of you to come and let Kinney know how much we appreciate him and what he has done to promote the traditional music of the Blue Ridge mountains.
