Saturday, June 29th, is set to be a vibrant day of music at the Nantahala Outdoor Center, offering two fantastic musical performances on the Big Wesser Deck and the Main Stage. This dual lineup is part of our Summer Sound series and perfectly encapsulates the spirit of summer with lively tunes and beautiful outdoor settings.

Saturday Afternoon (2 PM – 5 PM) on the Big Wesser Deck: Start your afternoon with Shane Meade, who will be performing on the Big Wesser Deck from 2 PM to 5 PM. Shane Meade is a gifted singer-songwriter known for his soulful voice and acoustic guitar skills, blending elements of folk, jazz, and soul. His laid-back, melodic performances are ideal for enjoying alongside the natural beauty of the Nantahala River. The Big Wesser Deck provides a relaxed, intimate atmosphere where you can sip on a cold drink from the nearby pub, enjoy the riverside views, and let Shane’s music serenade you through the afternoon.

Saturday Evening (5 PM – 8 PM) on the Main Stage: The musical energy picks up in the evening with Asheville Junction taking the Main Stage from 5 PM to 8 PM. Known for their vibrant mix of bluegrass, country, and Americana, Asheville Junction brings a dynamic presence to the stage. Their performance is filled with lively, toe-tapping tunes that are perfect for a summer evening. The Main Stage, set against the backdrop of the Nantahala forest, enhances the experience, making it an ideal setting for enjoying live music as the sun sets.

Both performances offer unique experiences at the Nantahala Outdoor Center. You can enjoy a more mellow, introspective afternoon with Shane Meade and then transition to the high-energy, festive atmosphere provided by Asheville Junction. Make sure to check out the dining options available, like the casual fare at Big Wesser Riverside Pub or the more refined offerings at River’s End Restaurant.

Whether you’re looking to relax and unwind or energize and celebrate, June 29th at the Nantahala Outdoor Center has music to match your mood. Bring your friends and family for a day filled with great tunes, tasty food, and the stunning natural beauty of the great outdoors. It’s an excellent opportunity to make the most of your weekend surrounded by good vibes and great melodies.
