Welcome to Southwest Blue Ridge Highlands

You’re bound to hear a fiddle or two in the Southwest Blue Ridge Highlands of Virginia! The Crooked Road, Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail, tours the area’s music venues and celebrates its famous country mountain music. Attend a fiddler’s convention or even join in on a jam session yourself! There also seems to be a little music in the region’s rugged natural setting. Hike the Cumberland Gap, explore the 850-foot tunnel of Natural Tunnel State Park or drive the beauty of Blue Ridge Parkway. But, don’t forget about the world-class Virginia Highlands Festival in Abingdon. The art, antiques and musical performances of this annual summer gathering will astound you! Make some music of your own during your trip to Virginia’s Southwest Blue Ridge Highlands region!
