From our love of music and our belief that music is best shared in a community, came the founding of the Piedmont Blues Preservation Society in 1985. Our non-profit organization works to cultivate and preserve the tradition of blues music. Our mission is to help the youth of our community discover the wonder and joy of music by raising awareness and providing music education to our community and schools. We strive to bring quality blues events, including our Annual Carolina Blues Festival, (now in it’s 28th year!) concerts, competitions, workshops, and educational programs to the Triad.
Piedmont Legacy Trails is the trails collective in the Piedmont Triad whose primary goal is to highlight our natural places, connect trail efforts, and give voice to regional trail interests for the the benefit of our communities. Trails are a great way for people to enjoy nature and improve their mental and physical health while also being beneficial to local economies and the environment. When people get outside and experience nature they are healthier, happier, and more likely to protect the places that they love.
