Come join neighbors from across the Commonwealth to enjoy “Music for the Mountains”, a festival raising funds to fight the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. The day will feature the music of Trees on Fire, The Will Overman Band, The Sally Rose Band, Gene and Gayla Mills - more to be announced. Food by Blue Ridge Pizza, BBQ Bar, Carpe Donut, Claudia’s and more will be available. Our mission is to bring together Virginians in the fight against the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. To save not only our mountains but our water, farmlands and landowner rights. We will have speakers and information tables to educate and share materials. We are inviting our elected officials and those running for office. Money raised will help pay for a tri-county economic impact study, to help offset landowner legal costs, and to support organizational costs moving forward. Tickets are $25, kids under 12 are free. Sponsoring organizations are Friends of Augusta, Friends of Nelson, Free Nelson, Augusta County Alliance, Wild VA, Pledge of Resistance to the Dominion Pipeline, Pipeline Education Group, and the Chesapeake Bay Group Sierra Club.
