“Music…furnishes a delightful recreation for the hours of respite from the cares of the day, and lasts us through life.” Jefferson to Nathaniel Burwell, March 14, 1818

Listen to some of Virginia’s best folk music and Americana bands in the backyard of Mr. Jefferson’s retreat house. Pair the music with local foods, shop for works by local artisans and explore Jefferson’s octagonal villa—considered his most perfect work of architecture—at a reduced rate. Bands include the Sons of Liberty, the Crooked Road Ramblers, The Wildmans, and Morgan Wade & The Stepbrothers. Tickets for the Poplar Forest Folk Festival are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. All advanced ticket sales end at 5 p.m. Oct. 19th.
