Planning to travel to NC and Virginia with my banjo. In Fussel´s book "Blue Ridge Music Trails" I found a note about a venue in Eden, NC, with "covered dish dinner, concert and jam session". Would that mean that I am supposed to bring some meal to the place or what is the meaning of "covered dish dinner"? Sorry to ask this but as a German I´m not familiar with these rules/customs.
BTW Any recommendations for my travel welcome!

Covered dish dinner events are something that most if not all who attend will bring a dish (whether it be appetizer, main course, or desert) to put on a table with all the other's food. This ensures there's enough food for everyone to partake in. It is not necessary to bring food, and in your situation I'm sure they would welcome you regardless if you brought anything or not. Enjoy your vacation.

Edit...you will want to contact the venue or someone in the area to verify the event still occurs, and if it does...when (once a month, only during the Summer, etc.)   There are folks here who may be able to verify for you.

I'll be hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains in a couple of weeks; I've been there before a few times, highly recommended, if you'd be willing to travel that far east.

An hour drive from Eden is Old Salem, worth a detour (will remind you of Germany/Bohemia...)
