The Charleston Music Hall in downtown Charleston hosts extraordinary musical, artistic, and theatrical experiences for audiences in the city, with the aim of promoting local, regional, and national talent and encouraging communal participation.
Built in 1849 as a passenger station for the South Carolina Railroad, the building, which is the oldest on the block, had a tumultuous history of construction, renovation, decoration and, following the Charleston earthquake of 1886, dereliction, leaving it standing empty for 60 years.
Finally, in 1995, it was transformed into the amazing arts venue that it is today. Since opening its doors, the Music Hall has hosted a variety of top class performers, including David Byrne, Joan Baez and world-renowned bluegrass musician, Ricky Skaggs.
