Mountain Dance and Folk Festival
August 3 @ 7:00 pm - August 6 @ 7:00 pm
“This event is not sponsored by or otherwise endorsed by UNC Asheville
Hundreds of musicians, dancers, and storytellers, who are preserving the traditions of the Southern Appalachian Mountains, will perform on stage at UNC Asheville’s Lipinsky Hall. These traditions involve not only the hand-clapping, toe-tapping rhythms of bluegrass, the style and stories of century-old ballads, the high energy of clogging, the elegance of Big Circle Mountain Smooth Dance, the fun and entertainment of storytelling, but also include an awareness of the hardships and trials that have brought us to this place and time.
This is a ticketed event.
