HCC receives $20,000 grant

Written by 

Haywood Community College recently received a $20,000 matching grant from the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area Partnership (BRNHAP) to develop and implement an Appalachian Heritage Arts Music Program at the college.

Music Heritage is identified as one of the core interpretive themes for the BRNHAP focusing on traditional music with significant history in the region.   

The Appalachian Heritage Arts Music Program is designed for individuals to be able to explore the rich heritage of Appalachian music from the novice to those with career ambitions. Continuing Education classes are being offered in HCC’s Creative Arts Building in a dedicated space equipped with state of the art theatre surround sound and recording capabilities.

Classes include Guitar Basics, Introduction to the Banjo, and Getting Started on the Fiddle. As the program grows, other courses will be offered such as: Beginning and Advanced Old Time Bluegrass and Clawhammer Banjo; Bluegrass, Folk, and Bass Guitar; Mandolin; Dulcimer; Dobro; and Appalachian Clogging.
