at the Mountain Dance and Folk Festival & Shindig
on the Green:
In keeping with the objective to preserve and showcase our wonderful Southern Appalachian heritage, the Folk Heritage Committee desires that the type of music, dance and storytelling presented at the Mountain Dance and Folk Festival and Shindig on the Green be a true representation of this heritage.
Mountain Dance and Folk Festival programming committee considers only
traditional musicians and dancers
that have supported us
at Shindig and fundraisers. Programming meetings usually take place
in February and March. Performers are invited to participate by the end of
April. There is no application for performance. If you are a traditional
performer or group, and wish to be considered, send an introduction letter
and a CD, an audio or video tape to the address below.
The Folk Heritage Committee is grateful for the generosity of all Shindig on the Green and Mountain Dance and Folk Festival performers.
