Singing On The Mountain's 94th Celebration Is June 24 (2018-06-12 15:43:05)

The 94th Annual Singing on the Mountain will be Sunday, June 24, in MacRae Meadows at the base of Grandfather Mountain.

The lineup includes The Collective, The Cockman Family, Michael Combs, Patricia Smith and New Covenant. This year’s message will be delivered by former N.C. State basketball player Tommy Burleson.

The celebration will begin at 9 a.m. and continue until 2 p.m., with a break at 1 p.m. for Burleson’s sermon.

The day will conclude with a special performance of “Just As I Am” by all of the performers to honor the late Rev. Billy Graham.

The Singing on the Mountain is recognized by the N.C. Arts Council and Blue Ridge National Heritage Area as part of the Blue Ridge Music Trails of North Carolina and is the oldest ongoing old-time gospel convention remaining in the Southern Appalachians.

Concessionaires will be available on site and a goodwill offering will be collected to support the musicians who volunteer their time to perform.

The Singing on the Mountain remains free, according to the longstanding motto: "Whosoever will may come."

Singing on the Mountain Foundation Inc. is now a non-profit organization and is now accepting donations to help fund the yearly event. For more information, go online to
