The Clinch Mountain MusicFest is more than just another music festival. Its a unique music experience born from the desire to preserve and foster the rich musical heritage brought to Appalachia by fiercely independent and resourceful Scots, Irish, Anglo, Welch and German settlers in about 1750. These hardy souls built their log cabin homes on steep mountain ridges and in deep, dark hollers by rushing mountain streams. The Clinch Mountain Music Fest is an Affiliated Festival on The Crooked Road: Virginia's Music Heritage Trail.
