Appalachian Music detailFiddle tillersCU

The music of Appalachia has deep roots in Cincinnati.

Traditional Appalachian music is derived from various influences, including the ballads, hymns, and fiddle music of the British Isles (particularly Scotland), the African music and blues of early African Americans, and to a lesser extent the music of Continental Europe.

 Signature styles of banjo playing in old-time and bluegrass music were pioneered and popularized by musicians from the Appalachian foothills. Today, the sounds of Appalachian music can be heard in a wide range of genres including ballad singing, bluegrass, blues, early country music, gospel, mountain swing, and old-time.
