Live Music at 5506′ presents Grandpa’s Cough Medicine
June 25 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm
The coolest mountaintop bar east of the Rockies is the place to catch live music every Saturday between June 3 and Sept. 4
. The resort’s summer music series combines great bands, cool beverages and spectacular panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Because of such natural beauty, Wine Enthusiast magazine included the 5506’ Skybar on its list of “8 Sizzling Ski Resort Bars in America”. Concerts start at 2:30 p.m. each Saturday, weather permitting.
Cost is $10 to ride the chairlift. The concerts themselves are free.
Blazing tempos, outlaw attitude, foot-stomping intensity, acoustic wizardry. These things all accurately describe Grandpa’s Cough Medicine’s tongue in cheek approach to bluegrass music. Carving out a niche that is all their own, they include humor and dark subject matter in their lyrics, yet are fully capable of letting their musicianship do the talking with instrumental compositions. The trio’s seemingly simple combination of flat-picked guitar, Scruggs style banjo, upright bass and two vocals creates a sound so huge, that it can make a six piece band blush.
