Music of Our Mountains: An interactive virtual archive of the musical traditions of the southern Virginia Blue Ridge

The town of Floyd and surrounding Blue Ridge region has developed a reputation worldwide for its living traditions of music and dance, which have long been an important source of human connection throughout Appalachia.

Constructed and presented with compelling content and storytelling, the Music of Our Mountains platform will serve as both a comprehensive educational resource and an engaging promotional platform by celebrating local music culture and crediting the contributions of those who helped to shape our local traditions.

The Music of Our Mountains project is made possible by the generous support of private donors as well as the Virginia Humanities.
