Sing Behind the Plow

From the time that John C. Campbell married his bride, Olive Dame, they shared a dream: to improve the quality of life in Appalachia while preserving its rich traditions. After traveling the region in a wagon, both realized that education was the answer, but John died before he could fulfill  his dream. Olive Dame marched on and in 1925, the John C. Campbell Folk School opened its doors in tiny, rural Brasstown, North Carolina.

Today, over 90 years later, the John C. Campbell Folk School welcomes students from all over the world - teaching them a variety of crafts, music, dance and more - simply for the sheer love of learning.
