THE CROOKED ROAD VIRGINIA’S HERITAGE MUSIC TRAIL
Come join us on the Crooked Road! The Crooked Road is a driving route stretching 333 miles through the scenic mountains of Southwest Virginia where you can experience Authentic Music that has been preserved by the region’s musicians for generations. In addition to the great music The Crooked Road has to offer, you will also enjoy the Museums and other attractions that add so much to this experience and see why The National Trust for Historic Preservation named it one of America’s 2010 “Dozen Distinctive Destinations”
