Folks come together in this haven, tucked in the beautiful western North Carolina mountains, to have joyful and enlivening experiences full of learning and laughter. In fact, the Folk School's motto, "I sing behind the plow," reflects our desire to find happiness, expression, and art in our daily lives. The Folk School was added to National Register of Historic Places, in 1983. Here are a few of the things you'll find at the Folk School exemplifying our ongoing celebration of life and creativity. Please join us.
