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.

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 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!

Raymond Fairchild is a true Legend. Check him out on the internet. This auditorium is not fancy at all. It is Pure Southern Applachia. Also, if you have ever heard of Popcorn Sutton from Moonshiners on t.v., his son dances here at times.
