Annual Celebration of Traditional Music (CTM)
Annual Celebration of Traditional Music
Coming October 12-15, 2023!
Join us for our 50th Annual Celebration of Traditional Music October 12-15, a festival of roots music and dancing on Berea College campus! This series of workshops, performances, and activities featuring various musicians, dance instructors, and scholars is open to the public and family-friendly. All ages are welcome, and most of the events are free (outside of the evening concerts, which cost $10 a ticket).
Bring your instruments, feet, and voices, and enjoy a weekend of singing, playing, and dancing.
First held in 1974, CTM is part of the Appalachian Center’s mission to encourage and coordinate the College’s Appalachian programs.
Find out when and where this year's workshops, presentations, and concerts are happening!
The numerous singers and musicians heard on Celebration recordings document the full range of Appalachian music's ethnic, vocal and instrumental diversity.
