The town members were buzzing about Appalshop long before I stepped into today. Each local or business owner I talked to said I must stop in and check this place out and I am glad I made the trip. A place created both to preserve the Appalachian heritage and teach the next generation about how to capture such enriching stories,... More

I absolutely loved every moment of time I spent in Appalshop. They have a radio show dedicated to good music and public service and an art gallery on the ground floor. No matter what you're doing in Whitesburg, Appalshop is well worth the detour. Plus, if you can't make a physical appearance, you can listen to their programs on air... More

We recorded our PSA for Entrepreneurship for the Public Good workshop and it was fair enough to say we were treated very well. The studio offers a warmth reception with the best programs I have heard about in a while. One of them is helping prisoners speak to the loved ones and send them messages via the WMMT radio. It...

I love this place. It is super cool. Also, I got to meet an intern who was super friendly and worked patiently with us for our public service announcement. We also go to be on the radio and the gentlemen who spoke was super nice. It was all pretty unplanned for this event too, but they worked with us and... More

Attended in June 2012. My favorites were the Ruckers, Shape Note Singing, Old Regular Baptist Singing, the Lee Sexton band, and the flatfoot dancing.

Its a great place to catch some really good shows. Most will represent our region. But may catch shows about our heritage or even woodworking.

Appalshop began as a grass-roots effort to save the Appalachian heritage through archive the music and folklore of the area in video and print. It also advocated conservation of nature in opposition to the destruction of strip mining. It has evolved into a radio station, recording studio, auditorium, and many other facets, still concerned with preservation of all that is... More

Appalshop is a non-profit multidisciplinary media, arts and education center based in Whitesburg, Kentucky. We, as interns of EPG program of Berea College went there and explored and interviewed the persons in charge. Beth Bingman, the Managing Director of Applashop, warmly welcomed us and explained us what projects they are doing right now, what is their purpose and a brief... More
