The weather outside may be chilly but inside many traditional music venues on the Blue Ridge Music Trails of North Carolina you’ll find the music is hot and the dance floors humming. The traditional music that was born and bred in these mountains comes to life when pickers launch into the lively strains of old-time, bluegrass, and early country, and dancers show their passion with the clicking of clogging shoes, or the skills of flatfooting and buckdancing.
