Music Shows

Mountain View claims to be the Folk Music Capital of the World. Judging from the amount of shows, artists, recordings, schools, and instrument lessons, it would be hard to argue the claim.

Folk, 1950's rock, bluegrass, gospel, and old time country are the genres. Dances are held from time to time at the American Legion and other community facilities.

Pickin' Porches - A feature of local RV parks and resorts is a "pickin' porch". This is usually a small building with a porch where artists and guests alike perform. Some are inside and air conditioned. These are normally informal jam sessions, but may also be scheduled performances. Guests themselves use the pickin' porches for jam sessions. Strangers meet and play together, sharing a mutual passion for bluegrass, folk, gospel, and old country. Every year many people come to Mountain View just to play and enjoy the music.
