Join us for virtual Morngingsong with Sarah Kate Morgan on Friday, July 10, at 7:45 a.m. on the Folk School Facebook page.
Sarah Kate Morgan started her musical journey at 7 years old when she was introduced to old-time music through a dulcimer that her grandfather built. From there, she has gone on to develop a uniquely intricate and virtuosic style inspired by the traditional Appalachian music she grew up with in rural East Tennessee.
At 18, Sarah placed 1st at the 2012 National Mountain Dulcimer Championships held in Winfield, KS. She recently graduated from Morehead State University in eastern Kentucky with degrees in Traditional Music, Appalachian Studies, and Arts Administration. You can find her living in a little hippie camper on a farm in Olive Hill, Kentucky, playing lots of music, trying her best at gardening, and calling the occasional square dance.
Sarah Kate also performs as a regular member of the Michelle Canning Band supports Kentucky songwriter Jasmine Fouts on bass, calls square dances, and runs an afterschool program in Haldeman, KY focused on traditional music, dance, and fostering mental health through creative expression.
