Pickin' and Grinnin'

Record #:
Traditional music has evolved over the past 250 years in the North Carolina mountains, as migrants from a number of countries brought their distinct musical signatures to the area. This interweaving of cultures created the old-time mountain music which is still continuing to evolve and flourish into the twenty-first century. Kunkel lists a number of places where bluegrass performances can be heard weekly, including Clay's Corner (Brasstown); Balsam Mountain Inn (Balsam); Snowbird Mountain Lodge (Robbinsville); Mars Hill College (Mars Hill); and Shindig on the Green (Asheville).
