Wild, Wonderful West Virginia and Mountain Stage– a production of West Virginia Public Broadcasting–in collaboration with local partners will host a series of video premiere events showcasing venues and musicians along the Mountain Music Trail during the month of October.

“We are thrilled to come together with Mountain Stage and local partners to showcase the Mountain Music Trail,” Commissioner of Tourism Amy Shuler Goodwin said. “Music is a significant part of West Virginia’s cultural identity and these videos will encourage folks to not only explore the Mountain Music Trail, but other destinations along Route 219 as well.”

The Mountain Music Trail consists of venues throughout five counties in eastern West Virginia that came together to promote and present the traditional music, dance, and folkways of the Allegheny Mountain region. Several months ago, the West Virginia Public Broadcasting production team took to the road to capture the essence of the trail which runs through Tucker, Randolph, Pocahontas, Greenbrier and Monroe counties as part of a partnership between Wild, Wonderful West Virginia and Mountain Stage, a production of West Virginia Public Broadcasting to promote the Mountain Music Trail.

“This partnership with Wild, Wonderful West Virginia allowed us the opportunity to meet the people who make up these colorful communities all along the Mountain Music Trail,” Associate Producer of Mountain Stage Vasilia Scouras said. “We are honored and excited to help showcase the cultural traditions and musical landscape that make this mountainous 200-mile heritage trail one of a kind and unique to West Virginia.”

All Mountain Music Trail premiere events are free and open to the public. Each will feature local food and a Mountain Music Trail Sampler featuring local musicians and bands.
