Music Heritage Hike

June 2 @ 12:00 am EDT

Enjoy a guided 4-mile hike in the hardwood forests and sunflower-drenched meadows at the Blue Ridge Music Center. Experience the walks made by local residents back in the days when they’d travel miles to hear and play songs on neighbors’ front porches.

After an hour of walking among the sounds of wildlife, you’ll start to hear mountain music in the distance. Following these sounds along a forested trail, we will find ourselves in the company of musicians performing at the Music Center. Here, we can snack (bring a picnic lunch!) while listening to stories and tunes still kept fresh from long ago. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit the roots of American music exhibit at the music heritage museum, offered free to the public. 

The hikes are limited to ten participants and registration is required. Click here to register.
