Old Time Music Week is a part of the Arts Education program at Stuart’s Opera House which reflects the rich traditions of music and storytelling of our Appalachian Foothills Region. Classes are offered in some of the common Appalachian instruments, and students can participate in an old-time string-band ensemble as well as learn about the historical development of the music and culture.

Classes in banjo, mandolin, fiddle, bass, and guitar will be available. Masterclasses and workshops include flatfooting, Appalachian foodways, quilting in the Appalachian tradition, storytelling, instrument repair, Appalachian herbalism, and more!
