Let’s be honest, Birmingham has great music and even better music venues.  Moonlight on the Mountain, a listening room in Bluff Park, puts a fresh spin on the house concert craze we all know and love.

Although Birmingham has a smorgasbord of music venues for concert-goers to choose from, this one is doing something different.  Located at 585 Shades Crest Road in Bluff Park, Moonlight on the Mountain offers a new experience for concert-goers.

LISTENING is what makes The Moonlight different from other live music venues. Here, the performing artist is the most important person in the room, while they are on stage. We cater to an audience who comes to pay respectful attention to the talent being presented. Let’s keep it special.                                                                                                           -Moonlight founder Keith Harrelson

Moonlight on the Mountain highlights the musician rather than the audience.  Singer-songwriters from all genres are lining up at this venue, including country, indie, blues, and folk.  This intimate venue seats about 80-100 eager individuals.
