Traditions Concert Series

The Blue Ridge Music Trails of North Carolina proudly presents the Traditions Concert Series, performances by some of our region's top traditional musicians. But they're more than just concerts. In addition to great music, you'll hear stories from the artists about their music, how they have been influenced by others, what their music means to them, and much more. A "behind the scenes" experience that sets these concerts apart.
