Music of the Region

The Blue Ridge Music Center honors and celebrates the living musical heritage of the surrounding mountains and interprets its significance within the larger landscape of American music and culture. For generations, its tiny rural communities have produced an abundance of remarkable traditional musicians who have become keepers of a legacy rooted in the rhythms of African banjo and the melodies of the European violin. For these musicians, dancers, instrument makers, and communities, music is an integral part of life. The region created and still maintains a wellspring of old-time, bluegrass, and mountain gospel sounds that have profoundly influenced the development of American music. The Blue Ridge region is truly one of the most musical places on Earth.
