CONCERTS, DANCES, AND EVENTS
Community Events

The Folk School often hosts local non-profit events such as Empty Bowls with Clay and Cherokee County Food Banks. Check back often for updated events.


Music Events

Free concerts are held most Friday nights and feature some of the finest regional and national acts performing old-time, bluegrass, folk, gospel and Celtic music. We also offer occasional non-Friday concerts of various, entertaining types, so be sure to check this section often for our upcoming schedule.


Community Contra & Square Dances and Dance Workshops

Dancing is fun! And itís an integral part of life at the Folk School. Whether you come to a community dance or sign up for a weekend or weeklong dance class, join us in the joy of moving to music! Download our Community Dance poster.


Auctions

Each year, we hold two auctions of beautiful handcrafted items to benefit the Folk School. At these auctions you'll find special treasures to take home while supporting a good cause


Shape Note Singing

Originally published in 1866, William Walker's Christian Harmony is the oldest seven shape collection to have remained in continuous use, primarily in Western North Carolina and North Georgia. The Folk School's annual singing draws more than 70 singers from four states.

Celebrate the rich heritage of the Appalachians at our 40th annual Fall Festival, featuring the craft of 200 craftspeople, continuous live music and dance on two stages, craft demonstrations, food, kid's activities and much more.
