"Crooked Road Royalty" highlights the careers of the Hill Billies, the Stoneman Family, the Carter Family, and the Stanley Brothers, four western Virginia powerhouse groups that helped build the American country music industry. In "Crooked Road Musical Styles" visitors can explore the rich variety of roots music western Virginians sing and play—fiddle-and-banjo tunes, bluegrass, ballads of love and death, sentimental mountain songs, blues, and gospel. The exhibitions include rare film footage and photographs. BACK TO ALL EVENTS
