Gate 10 Featured in Crooked Road Series

Gate 10The Crooked Road: Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail presents Gate 10 in concert on Thursday, May 9th from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the Southwest Virginia Cultural Center & Marketplace (formerly Heartwood) in Abingdon, VA. This concert is part of The Crooked Road Music Series.

Gate 10 is a high energy band from the New River Valley of Virginia. They have found their way by performing traditional bluegrass, gospel and country music along with original music. Gate 10 is excited to travel this musical journey with a hard driving, solid style, but one that is firmly rooted in traditions with their own innovative sound. A true style of their own makes them a highly entertaining group to watch. Their stage presence is beyond their young years with their musicianship, vocals, and harmonies.

The Crooked Road Music Series takes place each Thursday at the SWVA Cultural Center & Marketplace. Visit the SWVA Cultural Center & Marketplace and experience Southwest Virginia’s creative and authentic culture. Located off I-81 at Exit 14 in Abingdon, VA, the Cultural Center features youth artists each 2nd Thursday along with open jams on the 1st, 3rd, 4th (and 5th) Thursdays to showcase Southwest Virginia performers.
