The Maggie Valley Opry House is an intimate venue where Raymond Fairchild showcases some of the best bluegrass music you can find. Raymond surrounds himself with a talented band that could be a featured act all on their own. Raymond's stories and laid back delivery are indicative of the music and the area. If you enjoy banjo music you will... More

What a treat this was on this hot July Saturday night. If you love real Bluegrass music then don't miss this place. It's a little bit hard to find but well worth searching for to hear the 5 time world champion banjo player. Raymond is outside greeting people as you arrive along with his Shirley and others in the band.... More

Raymond Fairchild being a five time world wide champion banjo player, we were not disappointed. We enjoyed the night of great bluegrass music and fun. We would love to come back again!

Went to the show on a Thurs. night. Raymond and his band are tight! It's a pleasure to watch all of them. They are all incredibly talented musicians. If you like bluegrass, you'll love this. It was a privilege to see them.

Raymond Fairchild and his band play real down home bluegrass music. Mr Fairchild is known for being one of the great banjo players in the world.

Spent last evening listening to Raymond Fairchild and band. What a treat! Great show. Especially enjoyed the talent of Danny Blythe on the harmonica. This was a highlight of our stay in Maggie Valley.

Raymond Fairchild and his wife Shirley are real down home people. We go to hear the music several times each time we visit Maggie Valley. Make sure to try some Balckberry Wine Jelly, Peach Brandy Jelly and can't forget about the Moonshine Jelly good for anything that ails you. Great experience, humble seating (take a cushion) sit back and enjoy.

Raymond Fairchild is the best! If you're looking for pure talent this is the place. The banjo is the main attraction and with Raymond, you will hear of the older generation greats. It doesn't get any better than Raymond on the 5-string!
