Tune in to summer at Biltmore’s outdoor concerts in Asheville

One of the fine signs of summer and fall in Asheville is the annual outdoor Biltmore Concert Series at the Biltmore estate. Imagine sitting under the stars, beneath a full moon if you’re lucky, with outstanding mountain views just to your right. Sweet! The first concert, Natalie Grant with Jeff Allen, will be July 29. When you stay at Lovers’ Loop Retreat, our affordable Asheville bed and breakfast alternative, you’re about 10 minutes from the Biltmore estate.

Biltmore Concert Series

The series typically features longtime performers, many from way back. You’ll recognize some of your favorites. Last summer, we went to see Mary Chapin Carpenter. What a memorable experience! It was a full-moon night, and the glowing moon was poised above the stage. The setting sun over the mountains beside the estate was so enchanting that Mary Chapin paused to comment on the scene and give the audience an opportunity to take photos.

The other performers in this year’s concert series are Michael W. Smith on July 30, Smokey Robinson on Aug. 5, Bruce Hornsby and Bela Fleck on Aug. 11, Allison Krauss on Aug. 12, The Beach Boys on Aug. 27, Styx on Sept. 3, Eddie Money on Oct. 7, The Fab Four on Oct. 14, and The Chairmen of the Board and Embers on Oct. 21.

If you get to the Biltmore early enough, you can bring a picnic to enjoy on the beautiful grounds.
