For the past 25 years, the National Council for the Traditional Arts, has guided the development, construction and operation of the Blue Ridge Music Center near Galax.
Now, the NCTA is shifting its focus and parting ways with the Blue Ridge Parkway’s museum and performance venue devoted to history and future of traditional Appalachian music.
In a recent letter to local government leaders, Parkway Superintendent Phil Francis talked about the changes and how the music center will use this shift as an opportunity to plan the center’s future.
