Mountain Grown Music - traditional mountain music of Haywood County North Carolina
HOMETHE MOUNTAINS THE MUSIC THE MUSICIANSTHE INSTRUMENTSCALENDARABOUT US

Not all of the musicians presented here are professionals in the sense that they earn a livelihood from their music, but in another sense they are all professionals. They come from all walks of life. There are doctors, dentists, lawyers, stone masons, and factory workers. Most have devoted a lifetime developing their musical skills. One common thread binds all of these folk together: they love the music they make.
