Come Hear North Carolina

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.

Please help to share and amplify our core message: The Roots of American Music Run Deep in North Carolina.

You can explore the North Carolina artists at this year’s Hopscotch Music Festival on our lineup page: 
See you at the festival!
