The Allegheny Echoes Workshops

Allegheny Echoes is the concept of a group of West Virginia musicians, writers and artists who wish to promote, support, preserve, and teach their art in a traditional way in a traditional setting. Their goal is to provide an accurate representation of West Virginia art that is not packaged and altered to appeal to a specific market. There is a strong emphasis placed on West Virginia style with an acknowledgement of the encompassing Appalachian culture. The Summer Workshops offer a chance for students of all ages and abilities to come together to learn, appreciate, and enjoy our West Virginia ways. It is an opportunity for students to join accomplished, honored performers for a week of instruction and fun in beautiful Pocahontas County, West Virginia. In addition to learning in an intimate workshop setting, students will be invited to participate in exciting outdoor activities in the heart of the mountains that provided inspiration for some of the greatest work of West Virginia musicians and writers. Participants will be exposed to a type of interactive, collaborative instruction that is fresh and unique, yet preserves the honesty and emotional legacy of the culture.
Allegheny Echoes is proud to continue our association with the Town of Marlinton and the Marlinton Motor Inn for the 2006 edition of our workshops. The event will be held in the town and surrounding area of scenic and beautiful Pocahontas County
