About the Yearly Convention


Next In-Person Convention:

Asheville, NC

July 12-16, 2022

After a two year postponement due to Covid-19, we are excited to finally hold an in-person convention from July 12-16, 2022. We can’t wait to finally see each other again and meld the musical cultures of Appalachia and East Europe.

2021 Virtual Summer Camp Was a Success!

Because of Covid-19 we have suspended in-person activities until 2022. But, we held a virtual “Summer Camp” in July of 2020 & 2021 over Zoom. These camps were an amazing success, with two weeks of workshops and over 80 registered participants! Thanks to our fantastic guest artists and workshop leaders who called in from the US and Ukraine, and to everyone who attended!
