Asheville named a top music city in U.S.

Ghost Light band

Asheville is known for its beautiful landscape, rich history, amazing food, local breweries, and its local and innovative musicians. National Geographic listed the top 10 music cities in the U.S. in its May 2018 Traveler edition. Coming in at number nine, Asheville was described as “America’s greatest undiscovered musical city.”

The city’s sound is rooted in old-time bluegrass and mountain folk music. You can expect to discover this lively, soulful experience at some highly acclaimed live music venues, summertime festivals and the popular free downtown drum circle on Friday nights.
