About the Hunters Moon:
Also known as a sanguine or “blood” moon, the term “Hunters Moon” is used traditionally to refer to a full moon that appears during the month of October. It is preceded by the appearance of a “Harvest Moon”, which is the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox (which falls on the 22nd or 23rd of September).

A Night With Mountain Stage at Adventures On The Gorge
October 26 at 6pm
Two of West Virginia’s entertainment institutions are teaming up for one night of intimate performances on the rim of the New River Gorge.
Join us for a wonderful and wildly intimate night of music as two champions of entertainment team up for one memorable evening nestled in the heart of West Virginia, located on the rim of the scenic New River Gorge.
We’re unplugging the “On The Air” sign for just a few hours to host a special evening on the campus of Adventures on the Gorge, a premier adventure resort that is home to the breathtaking views so commonly associated with “Almost Heaven.”
6pm: Mountain Stage pianist and West Virginia Music Hall of Fame inductee Bob Thompson will casually create a sunset-worthy soundtrack as we toast the golden-hour with a view of the New River Gorge that puts any Instagram filter to shame.We’ll move inside Smokey’s cozy atmosphere within the trees to indulge in heavy hors d’oeuvres and the tasty talents of AOTG’s exceptional culinary team.
7:15pm: A cash bar will be fully stocked with local favorites before Mountain Stage host Larry Groce takes the stage for a rare, intimate performance.
8pm: The night’s headline entertainers will be Americana multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter Larry Campbell and singer-guitarist Teresa Williams, who are now solely making music as a duo after years of playing in Levon Helm’s band. Together they’ve been frequent guests and collaborators with Bob Dylan, Phil Lesh, Little Feat and Jorma Kaukonen.
9:30pm: After-party jam with Fayetteville’s local favorite, Black Garlic! In a hypnotizing mixture of funk, jazz, and rock, Black Garlic transports their listeners into a whole new adventure.
Entertainment of this caliber in such a majestic setting doesn’t happen every Saturday night, so we hope you’ll make plans to join us as we take the spirit of Mountain Stage to Adventures on the Gorge for what’s sure to be memorable October night in Almost Heaven, W.Va.
