MUSIC AT FOXFIRE
Marshall County has a rich tradition of Sunday evening blues and juke joints, music filled picnics, and neighbors gathering on porches to play music. It is a quintessential part of our Hill Country Blues culture. Autonomous Black land spaces have always served a central role in preserving and sharing blues music and cultural expression.
In 2008, Foxfire reignited the longstanding tradition and began hosting concerts featuring local Hill Country Blues musicians every Sunday evening from March to Thanksgiving. Since that time Foxfire has been recognized as a best small-town outdoor music venue and place to visit by the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and Garden & Gun magazine and a host of media outlets, websites and blogs.

It was an honor to hold an abbreviated season of socially distanced open-air concerts in 2020, answering the call from community for safe spaces to gather and heal with the restorative power of our rich indigenous blues culture. In April 2021 we’ll return from hibernation and will plan to kick-off the blues season at that time, if the fates allow. To learn more about our musical gatherings, or to plan your own festival or workshop, check out our calendar + sign up for the email list! That way you can secure a front-row seat, steaming hot plate and join the Foxfire family.
