Ever wonder where Bluegrass and American Country/Folk music come from ?  Come to the Source ! Voices from the Mountain will take you on a musical journey to Appalachia to explore the Celtic roots of American folk music with songs, dance, and stories.  Retrace the steps of Olive Dame Campbell as she travels in 1907 to the wilds of Appalachia to interview the locals and collect their songs. She is thrilled to discover that the ballads originated in England, Scotland, and Ireland in the early 1700’s but, some 200 years later, were still being sung in the old ways.
