Haywood fundraiser showcases lineup of mountain music, dance

Written by 

A seemingly endless array of mountain music and dance will be showcased at the Dr. Ann R. Wilke Memorial Scholarship Fundraiser from noon to 10 p.m. Saturday, March 23, at the Haywood County Fairgrounds in Waynesville.

Entertainment will be provided by The Inmans, The Believers, Cross Ridge, Branded Heart, Mountain Tradition, Bobby & Blue Ridge, Southern Appalachian Cloggers, Smoky Mountain Stompers, Fines Creek Flatfooters, Dixie Darlins, The Blackberry Jam Band and The Coffee Branch Band. There will be various demonstrations, displays and related discussions of music and dance. Food and refreshment will be on-hand. 

Wilke practiced medicine in rural communities, often sacrificing her time and effort in making house calls and providing care and comfort to families in need. She was well aware of the negative impact of drug dependency issues on the family structure. This memorial scholarship, dedicated in her name, is to provide financial education and career training assistance for young adults of Haywood County who have survived the challenges of drug dependency issues within their immediate family environment. 

The event is free and open to the public.

For the last couple of months, the location has played host to a weekly open mic event called the Spontaneous CombustJam.
