LBSPY - MMT Postcard Image

Capture the rhythm and vibe of Appalachian music at Greenbrier County’s film premier of the West Virginia Mountain Music Trail. On Thursday, October 22, the Greenbrier County Convention & Visitors Bureau is sponsoring this free-to-all film premier along with a live performance by Black King Coal. Their songs range from 50s style rock and roll to country anthems all with a West Virginian twist that will have you stomping and clapping the whole way through. For more info, visit facebook.com/blackingcoal

The event will be held at Carnegie Hall with doors opening at 6:30 PM. There will be light refreshments with craft beer provided by the Greenbrier Valley Brewing Company courtesy of their local distributor, American Beer Company.

The Mountain Music Trail has a long history wrapped in traditional Appalachian music, dance and folkway. It stretches along the 200-mile, Route 219 corridor and includes the counties of Monroe, Greenbrier, Pocahontas, Randolph and Tucker. It is an example of living history connecting venues, festivals, musicians, radio stations and others devoted to preserving West Virginia’s music heritage.

This summer Wild, Wonderful West Virginia, in collaboration with Mountain Stage and the West Virginia Public Broadcasting team took to the road to capture the essence of the trail, producing a series of mini-documentaries that showcase some of the venues and musicians that reside there.

“This partnership with Wild, Wonderful West Virginia allowed us the opportunity to meet the people who make up these colorful communities all along the Mountain Music Trail,” Associate Producer of Mountain Stage Vasilia Scouras said. “We are honored and excited to help showcase the cultural traditions and musical landscape that make this mountainous 200-mile heritage trail one of a kind and unique to West Virginia.”

Scheduled to air on PBS later this fall, the unveiling also includes local Mountain Music Trail premiers within each county. Each is free and open to the public and will feature a Mountain Music Trail Sampler of local musicians and bands.
