Piedmont Folkways was formed in 2017 to share an interesting story and to increase public awareness and access to regional traditional music, folk tales, stories, and historical events.  This process includes historical research, writing and producing performance pieces for live theater, broadcasting a weekly live radio show, special events with visiting artists, and podcasts.

Piedmont Folkways Inc is a 501 C3 nonprofit organization, incorporated in December 2018, to manage The Tom Dooley Project for the 2019 performances, and to create additional performing arts projects.
