MUSIC AND DANCE

It is difficult to separate music and dance at Pine Mountain Settlement School. They are often integrally intertwined. Music and dance both played a significant role in the development of both campus and valley community at Pine Mountain. Many leading scholars of Appalachian ballads, folk-dancing and mountain musical instruments, particularly the dulcimer, have used the resources found at Pine Mountain Settlement. Many of the staff who worked at the School left rich collections of letters, transcriptions and observations related to both music and dance at the School and in the surrounding community.

The following resources provide a brief overview of materials held at the School:
