Great Smoky Mountains National Park will hold its 9th annual "Music of the Mountains" celebration Friday, April 19 through Sunday, April 21. Over the years, this event has grown to span an entire weekend, with performances of traditional music in neighboring communities, including an entire day of free music at the Sugarlands Visitor Center on April 20th.

The three-day event begins with a concert of Celtic music by Four Leaf Peat on Friday at 7:00 p.m. at the Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center in Townsend, Tenn. General admission is $5.

"Music of the Mountains" continues on Saturday with a series of free performances of old-time mountain music during the day at the park's Sugarlands Visitor Center. Six programs are planned from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (see schedule below). This year the park will welcome back Knoxville musician Matt Morelock to the stage with his friend, fiddler Ferd Moyse of the Hackensaw Boys. The duo will play two sets at 2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.

The Sunday afternoon program at the Smoky Mountain Visitor Center in Cosby, Tenn, will feature traditional Appalachian religious music with an old fashioned community sing along from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. General admission is $4.
