Bluegrass Spartanburg, an entity of Spartanburg Philharmonic, was established in 2015 by a small group of bluegrass fans living in our town. Their goal was to bring nationally recognized and award-winning bluegrass entertainment to our community. Today, Bluegrass Spartanburg welcomes a variety of bluegrass bands that span from traditional to contemporary, bringing their down-home roots mixed with rock-infused jams for all to enjoy.

When you give to Bluegrass Spartanburg, you are growing the vibrancy of music in the Upstate and helping to underwrite the expense of bringing this series to Spartanburg.

rave reviews for bluegrass spartanburg

We had a wonderful time at the Chapman Cultural Center in Spartanburg. We could not have been treated any nicer, and as far as venues go, it’s about as pretty of a place as we ever get to play. The hospitality, the crew, the crowd, and the warm energy made a memorable night for sure.
— Darren Nicholson, Balsam Range
Spartanburg! We felt the love! We had a very fun, music-loving crowd. The venue supplied top-tier hospitality. We’d definitely recommend this bluegrass music series to any fan or artist!

From a performer’s perspective, it’s been a privilege to sit with the organizers of Bluegrass Spartanburg. This is exactly the type of organization that every city needs to ensure a healthy arts scene. Any type of roots genre benefits from committed citizens, who are passionate about the music and want to share it with their community. With the revitalization of downtown Spartanburg and the thriving Upstate, in general, it’s only appropriate that the arts are nurtured. These folks are successful business people, who are applying their skills to bringing quality bluegrass music to Spartanburg, in a well-organized and thoughtful way. I admire the purity of their motives and wish there were more organizations like this one. A vibrant music scene makes Spartanburg a better place to live.

We are very excited about expanding our genres of music and bringing high-quality live music to our community.
