Old Time Music and Dance at Swannanoa Gathering

It’s Old time music and dance week at the Swannanoa Gathering. This summer-long exploration of folk music traditions features workshops, classes, dances,  jam sessions and performances.  This week classes and performances focussed on “Old Time Music” and included folk storytelling, clogging and traditional mountain music. Wednesday’s performance was followed by a square dance, called by students from the mountain dance class. The Swannanoa Gathering celebrates its 20th year all summer at Warren Wilson College, and continues through August 6, 2011.
