6 Spots to Listen to Live Music in Summit

By Samantha Blair | Tuesday, September 3, 2019

There’s no better way to end or spend an evening than with some good live music. Luckily, Summit County has lots to offer all throughout the week. The breweries across the county are great places to catch some live tunes, and one of the largest live music venues in the High Country is in Frisco. Open Mic Nights all across the county will give you an idea of what the local talent is like.
