Blue Ridge Music Trails of North Carolina

Sims was retained by the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area in 2016 to help increase awareness of the organization’s Blue Ridge Music Trails, covering 26 counties in Western North Carolina. The trails were created as part of a partnership between BRNHA and the North Carolina Arts Council to celebrate and promote the region’s traditional music and  many performance venues as a way to promote economic development in communities along the route. She worked to establish a partnership between the Blue Ridge Music Trails and WNCW-FM to create and air a series of short segments under the title of “Down the Road on the Blue Ridge Music Trails of North Carolina” with musician and storyteller Laura Boosinger.
