Asheville has a long history with music, beginning with traditional songs and tunes brought to the area by Scotch-Irish settlers. Over the years, the legends of what was once called "mountain music"--people like Jimmie Rodgers and Bill Monroe, and later Doc Watson and the Steep Canyon Rangers--contributed their own work to Asheville's cultural scene. Today, these traditional sounds can still be heard across Western North Carolina.
