Bluegrass

Bluegrass music is not dead – it is alive and well in modern Appalachia!

Damascus is one stop along the fabled “Crooked Road”:

     “The Crooked Road” is Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail, a driving route through the Appalachian Mountains from the western slopes of the Blue Ridge to the Coalfields region of the state. The trail connects major heritage music venues in the Appalachian region such as the Blue Ridge Music Center, Birthplace of Country Music Alliance, and the Carter Family Fold. The traditional gospel, bluegrass, and mountain music heard today was passed down from generation to generation and lives on through a wealth of musicians and instrument makers along the trail.

Local musicians travel down the back roads and from out of the hollers to meet and make music the traditional American mountain way.
