2009 Holiday Concert

WNRV was proud to sponsor the 2009 edition of our annual Holiday Concert.

All three bands provided a great set of music, and Chris' Old Virginia Smokehouse served up plenty of good food. Thanks to everyone that attended, and congratulations to the winners of the 3 door prizes. We appreciate your support of WNRV and local music.

We also want to thank the bands and everyone else that helped out with the concert, including the businesses and individuals that sold advance tickets. We appreciate Bill Blevins serving as the master of ceremony, and Wendy and Linda for handling the front ticket table.

Here are some photos from the show.

Listen to our interview with Donna, and the live in-studio performances of both Hans Creek String Band and State Line Bluegrass from our New River Valley Jamboree series on our Archives page. We have added some live songs from the concert for each band into our on-air rotation, and will be posting some live songs and videos on the web site.
