The Purple Fiddle
Atop the Allegheny Mountains in historic Thomas, The Purple Fiddle is home to a casual, deli-style cafe, a beer and wine bar, and a family-friendly music venue that has become West Virginia’s go-to gathering place for live Appalachianbased acoustic music. Since opening more than a decade ago, The Purple Fiddle has presented a live musical performance every Friday and Saturday night in its intimate, great-sounding space. 96 East Avenue, Thomas, 304.463.4040, purplefiddle.com, @thepurplefiddle on Facebook
