John C. Campbell Folk School - John C. Campbell Free Concert - Berea College Folk-Roots Ensemble

Berea College Folk Roots Ensemble at John Campbell Folk School


The Berea College Folk-Roots Ensemble takes Appalachian music in its various guises as its touchstone, and branches out into other kinds of traditional, roots, and folk music from there.

The group has chalked up some pretty impressive credits in its five years of existence. We generally perform seven times each semester, on and off campus. We've played with the Chieftains at the EKU Performing Arts Center, opened for Vince Gill in the same venue, toured the Southern Appalachians four times, recorded our own album ("Saturday Night, Sunday Morning") and performed on the national CBS television broadcast "Listen: A Celebration of Christmas at Berea College."

We are diving into ballads from Olive and Sharp's "English Folk Songs from the Southern Appalachians" just now in honor of the centennial of its publication, in preparation for the colleges Celebration of Traditional Music.
