We attended the Mountain Stage recording on the campus after the Augusta festival. Everything was well organized yet very warm and friendly. A lovely campus.

I just returned from Bluegrass Week at Augusta Heritage and it was magical. There is no other way to describe being surrounded by the teachers and students on a beautiful campus in the cool mountains of West Virginia. The program is intense. During my week I was up at 7am having a great breakfast including food from local farmers. Guitar... More

This event occurs every August on Davis and Elkins college campus. Each week has a theme. Dance. Country. They have students studying with masters and have shows in evening? Very much worth the visit. Lots to do. They also have a craft market with unusual and delightful offerings. Hope to attend again this year!!

We walked through the snow into the weekly "pickin'" in the Augusta Heritage Center and left thoroughly sated by the 7 incredible musicians who treated us like long, lost family. We were their only audience on a cold winter night, but they played for 4 hours without a shred of sheet music. Two guitars, 2 mandolins, 2 dulcimers, and a... More

I attended Irish Week a few years ago with a friend and we had a blast. The Heritage Center is on the campus of Davis & Elkins College. We stayed in a dorm room (during the summer when the students are gone) together. Meals and room were included in the price we paid and I don't think we ever left... More
