Day Tripping on the Blue Ridge Music Trails //

This summer get out and experience a world of adventure along the Blue Ridge Music Trails of North Carolina. The Music Trails span 29 counties and feature more than 200 traditional music events. Many of them are in charming towns you often drive past on your way to somewhere else. We suggest a short drive through Western North Carolina to fill your day, or weekend, with the history, character, and music of our mountain towns.

Jill Jones, Marketing Director of the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area, recently visited WSLS News 10 in Roanoke to talk about a few fun day-trips and suggested itineraries to Mt. Airy, Eden, and Sparta. Check out the interview on WSLS Daytime Blue Ridge, then check out our Suggested Itineraries or Find Music events right on this website and plan your own get away.
