Blue Ridge Backroads at the Rex Theater will present two of the region’s most popular old time bands in a live radio show broadcast around the world on WBRF, Classic Country FM 98.1. A family-based band from Grayson County, Virginia, the Whitetop Mountain Band is known for its exuberant accompaniment of square dances and for its diverse and wide-ranging repertoire, mixing fiddle and banjo instrumentals, ballads, as well as songs from many genres (blues, bluegrass, classic country, honky tonk, originals, and gospel). Five Mile Mountain Road brings a fiery intensity to a repertoire full of dance tunes, older country material, western swing, and bluegrass. The Rex Theater, with a wide dance floor immediately in front of the stage is a great venue to kick up your heels in.
