The Spartanburg Music Trail is taking votes for the next set of honorees. The trail presents Spartanburg’s legacy as a birthplace of musical careers and as of a contributor to American roots music such as blues, jazz, country, gospel and bluegrass. The trail is marked with signs throughout downtown, and a cell phone audio tour is available as well.
