About this project
Long Live Appalachian Music!
Song of the Mountains is a grassroots television program that showcases Bluegrass music and other Appalachian styles of music and entertainment but we believe it is truly so much more...
A little bit about us....our live shows occur once a month or so inside the Lincoln Theatre, a restored circa 1929 theater in a beautiful little Appalachian town called Marion VA. We've been recording the stellar musicians featured in our live performances since our first show in 2005 to create an archive of today's traditional and progressive Appalachian and Appalachian inspired musicians, showcase and share our music (Bluegrass, Old Time, gospel, Americana and more) with the rest of the country through the public television series 'Song of the Mountains'.
We have been, featured hundreds of excited musicians and bands, won a Telly award and over the past year the show aired on 141 public television stations! During our 7 year run we've been privileged to have many of the true legends of our music on the Song of the Mountains stage, and although a few of them have passed on the magic of their live performances will live on through our show for future generations to enjoy. We will keep on as long as we're able. There are too many greats to list so here's the big list of performers who have played Song of the Mountains.
Things have gone amazingly great - fairytale great - but...a show like ours costs money and times are tough, funding has been cut everywhere and Song of the Mountains has really felt it this year. Right now we are at critical funding levels and in serious need of dough to guarantee the performances we've recorded during the 2012 season make it to television so we're looking for help from you, our fans and our friends new and old at Kickstarter!
So if you read the top of this page and felt the urge to yell "Long live Appalachian Music" - you should say howdy sometime because we already like you - that is our mission and we need your pledge!
Thanks for checking us out ya'll and hope you will help us reach our goal so we can continue to bring these wonderful musicians to your television and make sure their performances are appreciated for many generations to come!
Song of the Mountains/The Lincoln Theatre is a non-profit organization.
