Picking the Blue Ridge Blues (podcast)

When most people think of mountain music, banjos, ballads or bluegrass come to mind, but the Blue Ridge is home to a rich blues tradition that dates back generations, and is still played today.

The "Down the Road on the Blue Ridge Music Trails of North Carolina" podcast highlights bluegrass and old-time music stories, performers, and traditions across the mountain and foothills counties of Western North Carolina. Hosted by Laura Boosinger and produced by Kim Clark of WNCW-FM, the podcast is a joint effort of the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area, WNCW-FM, and No Depression.
