Come Hear NC is a promotional campaign of the North Carolina Department of Natural & Cultural Resources and the North Carolina Arts Council designed to celebrate North Carolinians groundbreaking contributions to many of America’s most important musical genres — blues, bluegrass, jazz, gospel, funk, rock and everything in-between.
Our goal is to share and promote authentic and compelling stories about music and musicians in North Carolina — especially those that demonstrate our state’s influence on American music — with residents and visitors.
We need your help to share and amplify our core message:
The Roots of American Music Run Deep in North Carolina.
