P.O. Box 10, Pipestem, WV, US
Bio: Since it's creation in 1965, The Folklife Center has been the venue for many great artists both world renowned and local up and coming. The 60's and 70's saw a folk revival that brought notable musicians like Pete Seeger and Hedy West and drew thousands of people to our Mountain Music Festival each year. The laid back crowds and our focus on helping mankind got us dubbed locally as The Hippy Farm. As we progressed through the 80's and 90's we had a wide variety of musicians call our "Moutaineers Are Always Free" stage their home away from home. Today, we focus on helping the people of Appalachia achieve self-reliance while maintaining their freedom to be who they want to be. We are an inclusive community of people who among many other things, hold an Earthday Celebration each year and host Llynium Entertainment's Culturefest. From Bluegrass to Blues, to Reggae to Rock you will be pleasantly surprised what crosses our stage. We have plenty of opportunities to serve, listen and live for people of all ages, races, faiths and origins. We strive to be a peaceful place to share community work and creativity.
