Appalachian Master Artist Series

Appalachian Master Artist Series

About the Appalachian Master Artist Series

As part of a grant-funded initiative to preserve and promote traditional Appalachian craft, music and dance, the Folk School will be hosting four master artists for a week of demonstrations and performances celebrating their craft. During each week, we will offer free activities and opportunities for our students and local community to learn from and share with these visiting artists. Sign up for our Local eNews and follow us on Facebook for updates.

Riley Baugus was Master Artist for the week of October 14-18. Riley celebrated old-time music at the Folk School and several locations in Cherokee and Clay counties including area schools.

Helen Gibson was Master Artist for the week of December 9-13. Helen discussed the tradition of carving and demonstrated her craft at the Folk School and other area venues. Click here to watch a panel discussion about Brasstown Carvers.

Marlow Gates was the Master Artist for the week of February 17-21. Marlow demonstrated broom making for students and visitors at the Folk School and in the Murphy area. Click here to watch an interview with Marlow.
