Mountain Music Trails

After enjoying our tour of the Crooked Road in southwest VA last summer, I was browsing online to see if there were other, similar trails in Appalachia. My growing interest in, not just bluegrass, but all traditional mountain music, as well as the history and culture of this region, demands further explorations. I was thrilled to find that there are such “trails” in West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Kentucky. There may be more. So we reached a decision to use our travels this summer to explore West Virginia’s “Mountain Music Trail.” (The blog of our Crooked Road Trip starts here, and you can read the whole thing if you look at the August 2015 archives.)

We set out on our trip to West Virginia recently, and our trip report will appear here through the next several posts.
