Sounds of Our Heritage
Saturday and Sunday @ 11:30am

A weekly feature of traditional music presented by faculty and students from the Kentucky Center for Traditional Music at Morehead State University.

Located in the heart of the Bluegrass State, where Bluegrass, old time and country music history has its roots, The Kentucky Center for Traditional Music (KCTM) preserves, teaches, helps develop and celebrates our rich mountain heritage. KCTM offers an opportunity to study with musicians who have performed with legends like Johnny Cash and at the Grand Ole Opry, and to learn from professionals about performance, history, recording, the music industry and more.

KCTM provides a nationally accredited, quality education in traditional music styles including Bluegrass, Old Time, Country, Ballad Singing, Blues, Celtic, Western Swing and more. The music in which KCTM is most involved stems from, or is influenced by, music identified with the southern Appalachian mountain region.  

KCTM offers the only Bachelor of Arts in Traditional Music in Kentucky, along with a minor in traditional music. The center is also home to the traditional music archives and the Sounds of Our Heritage outreach program
