Music From The Crooked Road

Event Date:
Sunday, July 30, 2017 - 1:00 to 9:00pm

The Crooked Road: Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail concert celebrates the traditional music that has been kept by families and communities of Southwest Virginia since colonial times. Settlers of this mountainous region since the 1700’s have brought various ingredients – a cappella gospel music from German tradition that lives in the Old Regular Baptist churches today; spirituals, emotive singing and a musical gourd we now call a banjo from African tradition; and ballads and fiddles brought by the Scots-Irish and English.

Mixed together, these ingredients have produced one of the richest musical traditions on earth. The variety of it is amazing - old time string bands, a cappella gospel, blues, 300 year-old ballads, bluegrass, and more! It is a music tradition that is as vibrant today as it has ever been. We hope you enjoy a day of Music from The Crooked Road at the Virginia Highlands Festival. For more information about The Crooked Road, visit www.thecrookedroad.org or call 276-492-2409.

Tickets are $1-$3
