The Haunting Music of Roan Mountain

One of the hauntings in North Carolina that has people talking is also one of the most mysterious. On the peak known as Roan mountain between the border of North Carolina and Tennessee is a phenomena known to some as "The Ghostly Choir of Roan Mountain", others refer to it as the angels of Roan mountain and others still call it "The Devil's Choir of Roan Mountain". While they all mean the same thing for our purposes today we'll refer to it as "The Haunting Music of Roan Mountain".

The Ghostly music has been heard on Roan Mountain well before the white man has been in America. The Catawba tribe was said to challenge the other tribes in the area to battles that were so bloody and gory that the rhododendron at the edge of the bald bloom bright red.

There seems to be a difference of opinion on what the music sounds like. Some people claim it's the sound of angels rehearsing singing for the end of the world. other's claim that no one who'd heard the sound would claim that it was angels. To them the sound is horrible. Like an animal caught in a hunters trap. One brave soul set out to find the origin of the music, only to fall and be knocked out. during his unscheduled nap, the boy dreamed of a horrid choir of ghosts, ghouls and demons floating in the air singing down to him. The boy thinks he was asleep, but was he?

Whatever the source of the music it can still be heard after a storm. Which some claim is accompanied by a circular rainbow... but that's a tale for another day.
