CCAC supports the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area and its work in putting together the Blue Ridge Music Trails of North Carolina. Here is just a bit of information taken from their website. Happy trails!
Every weekend the North Carolina mountains and foothills come to life with the passionate strains of bluegrass, old-time fiddles, and dancing feet. Visitors can sample the richness of these music traditions through the Blue Ridge Music Trails of North Carolina. A new guidebook to the trails is an excellent resource for visitors who want to hear the music in an authentic setting and learn more about the music traditions.
In the guidebook, noted folklorist Fred C. Fussell puts readers on the trail to discover the many sites in western North Carolina where this unique musical legacy thrives. Organized by region and county, Blue Ridge Music Trails of North Carolina welcomes readers into the rich worlds of bluegrass, old-time, gospel, and string band music, as well as clogging, flatfooting, and other forms of traditional dance.
