In only few short weeks we’ll be making our way back to Berea, KY for the 75th Annual Mountain Folk Festival. On Saturday-the dancing started-as we learned some of the dances that will be performed at the festival this year. Marguerite Butler Bidstrup, from the John C. Campbell Folk School right here in Brasstown, helped start the Mountain Folk Festival to encourage and promote the preservation of folk dances, games, and songs in the youth of the mountains. I’m still blown away by the fact-that 75 years after she helped start it-there is a group of kids from Brasstown that attend the festival. I think she succeeded don’t you?
