Dahlonega Appalachian Jam, Dahlonega

The hills are alive with the sound of music in Dahlonega. The Appalachian Jam, a celebration of traditional mountain music, is held on the public square every Saturday from April 23-Oct. 8. Pick a shady spot and tap your toes to some old-time fiddle and banjo pieces, or sing along to a poignant ballad. The jam session is open to musicians of all skill levels, and they come from near and far to showcase their talents.

1 Public Square, Dahlonega, Ga., (706) 482-2707, dahlonegaappalachianjam.org

The Big House Museum, Macon

Today it’s a museum, but from 1970-1973 the Tudor-style house on Vineville Street in Macon was home to the Allman Brothers band members and their families. The southern rock notables were at the height of their fame. When they weren’t on the road, they were in the house writing music and holding jam sessions in what’s now the Fillmore East Room, named for the band’s 1971 breakthrough album, “At Fillmore East.”

Guitars, concert posters, vintage photos and clothing worn during performances are among the memorabilia on display.

In the summer, concerts are held on the back lawn.

East Tennessee vacation haven still thriving in wake of wildfires

It’s a spectacular drive northward along Highway 441 from small town of Cherokee on the North Carolina side of Smoky Mountains National Park to Gatlinburg on the Tennessee side.
