The all-summer-long Shenandoah Valley Music Festival kicked off over the weekend and, like summer itself, doesn't end until early September.

Enjoy the sounds of bluegrass, country and symphonic melodies at the Shrine Mont Conference Center in Orkney Springs, Virginia. 

Since it began in 1963, the festival has featured countless Grammy Award-winning artists performing in the pastoral setting of Orkney Springs, always keeping one thing in mind: They provide the music, nature provides the show.
