Blue Ridge Center And Uptown JazzFest

North Carolina is home to one of the most visited sites in America and it happens to be a road. The Blue Ridge Parkway holds some of the most beautiful vistas, historic sites and cultural treasures in our state and the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation is dedicated to preserving this iconic scenic highway. We'll visit with folks from the foundation and then we jazz things up a bit. Four years ago the uptown Jazz Fest was born and it's a hit. We'll talk to organizers to find out what to expect from this year's festival. Music and mountains when Charlotte Talks.

Old Salem And Mountains To Sea Trail (Rebroadcast)

Part One: Old Salem. Just as our country was being forged in the halls of the Continental Congress and birthed in the Revolutionary war, a group of hardy Moravian immigrants was building a settlement in the Piedmont of North Carolina. The town of Salem sprang up and still remains just outside of Winston-Salem. Today it is a living museum, a window into some of the earliest founders of our state. We'’ll visit with the President of Old Salem Inc., a company devoted to the settlement and to educating North Carolinians and other visitors on life in colonial North Carolina. Follow us back in time when Charlotte Talks.
