Mountains of Music celebrates unique culture and music

The Crooked Road’s Mountains of Music Homecoming is an extraordinary nine-day event celebrating Southwest Virginia’s unique heritage music and culture June 10-18.
Over 200 of the region’s finest traditional music artists will perform concerts in over 20 different communities where traditional music has been kept for many generations.
“This is nine days when all our traditional music finery is on display,” said Jack Hinshelwood, executive director of The Crooked Road. “People will gather in concert halls, in town squares and on porches to celebrate the rich musical heritage that they share in common.”
What makes the Mountains of Music Homecoming truly special are the more than 100 cultural experiences that organizations, businesses, and individuals are presenting in communities throughout the region that provide a taste of Appalachia’s unique and inviting culture.
Whether storytelling, barn dances, blacksmithing, night hikes, canoe floats, banjo making demonstrations, community meals or evening jam sessions, a myriad of remarkable events color each day and provide a host of rich activities for visitors and residents of the region to enjoy.
Concert tickets and a full schedule of Homecoming events are available at www.mtnsofmusic.com.
