Flat Rock Playhouse will continue the 2018 season with a Flat Rock Favorites all-star performance featuring the musical styles made famous by The Grand Ole Opry.
Combining the talents of performers from Million Dollar Quartet, Music on the Rock: Johnny Cash & Roy Orbison, and Music on the Rock: Garth Brooks and Alan Jackson, Pickin’ and A Grinnin’: A Night at the Opry guarantees a high energy, merry riot of musical expression.
Running from October 18-28 on the historic Flat Rock Playhouse Mainstage, Pickin’ and A Grinnin’: A Night at the Opry will offer the perfect chance to bring the whole family together for a hand clappin’ foot stompin’ good time!
As one of America’s greatest musical traditions, the Grand Ole Opry started in Nashville, Tennessee in 1925 as a weekly one-hour radio show and party. Today it is the longest-running radio broadcast in U.S. history.
Featuring some of Flat Rock’s most recognizable musical talents, Pickin’ and A Grinnin’: A Night at the Opry will showcase everything from bluegrass to honky-tonk, blues to rock n’ roll, and tin pan alley to pop standard.
