During its 20th anniversary year, NRCC's Fiddle, Banjo and Dance Club has been named an affiliate venue of The Crooked Road: Virginia's Music Heritage Trail. The Crooked Road organization describes affiliated venues as representing "the very best in authentic Crooked Road music and presenting a high-quality, community-oriented experience on a very consistent basis." The announcement was made at the college's annual holiday Jamboree before a crowd of about 500 bluegrass and old-time music fans.
