Founded by Bascom Lamar Lunsford in 1928, the Festival showcases an amazing repertoire of mountain performers who share songs and dances that echo centuries of Scottish, English, Irish, Cherokee and African heritage. Each evening is a joyful exploration of the rich culture found in the valleys and coves between the Great Smokies and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Presented at Diana Wortham Theatre at Pack Place in downtown Asheville, Thursday August 5 - Saturday August 7, 2010 at 7:00pm nightly. Tickets available at (828)257-4530.
