Teacher/performers for the General Sessions at the Maidencreek Old Time Music Festival

The teachers at the Maidencreek Old Time Music Festival share a love for the music of the Appalachian mountains, especially as it was played by people in the late 1800s and early 1900s, before music became a product instead of a daily communal activity.


The teachers for general sessions are generally here more than one year, most of them every year.
