Welcome, Friends.

Picture This . . .

You turn onto Bowman Drive, pass through the brick entrance and drive across a small bridge into a bucolic setting. To your right you see a group of mallards swimming in a pond fed by Deep Run. To your left the land falls away to a heavily wooded ravine that leads to the bordering Rappahannock River. Ahead lies an anachronistic mix of red brick buildings circa 1930 that once housed a manufacturing plant and is now the home of the A. Smith Bowman Distillery.

You park your car, walk toward the building and enter through the double red doors. The wonderfully sweet aroma of bourbon whiskey in various stages of the aging process washes over you. You’re greeted by a friendly face, “come on inside!” You find yourself in the perfect setting to listen to timeless music.

About Us

The Music

We feature old time, blues, jazz, bluegrass, folk, and Americana music—genres evolved from a mixture of the music that developed in regional isolation. During the Civil War, soldiers from across the country commingled, and these multifarious strands of American music began to cross-fertilize each other. They would later become more widespread through the phonograph.

The Setting

During the Civil War, The City of Fredericksburg and County of Spotsylvania, VA, situated halfway between the capitals of the opposing forces, were the sites of numerous battles. Located along the Rappahannock River midway between Richmond and Washington, DC, these historic locations provide the backdrop for our concert series.

The Venue

A. Smith Bowman Distillery is an historic family-owned distillery open to the public for complimentary tours, Monday-Saturday, departing hourly from 9am-3pm. Tours last about 1 hr. No reservations are required unless you have a group of 20 or more. For large groups, send an email or call 540.373.4555 to be sure your visit is well staffed.

The Shows

The red brick buildings that house the A. Smith Bowman Distillery, just minutes from downtown Fredericksburg, provide the perfect setting to listen to timeless music. Our goal is to provide you with an enjoyable listening experience, free of the noise and atmosphere of the bar scene, in a unique setting.

You’ll feel transported to another time and feel a connection to our uniquely American culture, surrounded by a group of people who are there to enjoy and respect the artists and other patrons.

Welcome! We’re glad you could join us.
