Partner Resources & Toolkit


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 participation! Please download the Toolkit here to find out how you can connect with this campaign.
