The Hillbilly GypsiesHiltons, VA -- In today’s fast-moving world, it’s understandable to be concerned that Appalachian heritage will give way to modern times and be virtually forgotten in the hustle and bustle of our fast-paced lives. Fortunately, dozens of studies have demonstrated that today’s generation is hungrier than ever for positive cultural experiences firmly rooted in age-old traditions, and young people are aching to learn from those who possess the wisdom of earlier times. A great place to watch this happening is at the annual Carter Family Memorial Music Festival, which takes place on August 2nd and 3rd at the Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, Virginia. Take in Appalachian Mountain Music, Bluegrass and Old-Time all at once place.

38th Carter Fold Festival - August 3rd and 4th, 2012

The New Ballards Branch BogtrottersHiltons, VA -- If we believed everything we read in the newspapers or saw on television, we would think that America is a bitterly divided nation. Music, however, remains a great unifier to bring everyone together through the power of a good song. The music of our Appalachian ancestors has been uniting people of various cultures, faiths, and world views for generations, and one of Appalachia’s most celebrated groups was Scott County’s legendary Carter Family.
