Traditional Appalachian Music

Largely descended from English and Scots-Irish folk traditions, with additional influences from other European immigrants, African-Americans, and Native Americans, the folk music of rural Appalachia provided the basis for bluegrass and country music.  Due to the relative isolation of the Appalachian region, music became an important means of expression and entertainment.
