In the late 1970s and early ’80s, The Elbow Room and its sister venue, The Other Place, opened the gateway in Harrisonburg to quality, nationally-recognized music acts, primarily blues. These venues became legendary on the touring circuit known as “From Boston to Austin” and became much desired by musicians who found the management and the audience enthusiastic for their fine music.
