Virginia is for Lovers

Bluegrass & Country Music

Bluegrass MusiciansThe ultimate way to experience Bluegrass, Country and Old Time music in Virginia is to drive The Crooked Road — Virginia's Heritage Music Trail. This route takes you to major music venues in the Heart of Appalachia and Blue Ridge Highlands regions.

Visit the Blue Ridge Music Center, the Birthplace of Country Music, the Carter Family Fold and the Ralph Stanley Museum and Traditional Mountain Music Center to fully immerse yourself or just get a taste of where the roots of these genres lie.

Enjoy annual festivals, weekly concerts and live radio shows. You'll probably catch an informal jam or clogging session at a country store, too!
