Traditional Sounds From the Trail

little levels 4

Combine string instruments and storytelling musicians with the Appalachian Mountains as the stage, and the Mountain Music Trail region comes alive! The summer festival season brings new meaning to ‘music in them mountains’ as traditional mountain music fills the entertainment line ups throughout Monroe, Greenbrier, Pocahontas, Randolph and Tucker Counties. Summer is the perfect season to enjoy the outdoor venues where you can try your hand at pickin’ a banjo, learn traditional flat footin’ and join the locals for the Virginia Reel at a square dance. The region’s authentic music heritage runs deep and the Mountain Music Trail is where Appalachian tunes, mountain heritage, and adventure meet.

Carrie and Michael Kline of Talking Across the Lines introduce guests to the rich and vibrant culture found in the Allegheny Mountains during their ‘Listening for a Change: Oral History and Appalachian Heritage’ Workshop June 1-4, 2014 in Elkins, WV.

The summer series, Augusta Pickin’ in the Park, begins in June so bring your lawn chairs or blankets to enjoy an evening in the Elkins City Park surrounded by acoustic old-time and bluegrass jams.

If your have a hankering to swing your partner round and round, you can find square dances in Helvetia, Ronceverte, Lewisburg, and Thoms, WV!
