West Virginia Folklife Program Announces 2020-2021 Master Artists and Apprentices Pairs

The West Virginia Folklife Program, a project of the West Virginia Humanities Council, announces its 2020–2021 class of master artist and apprentice pairs in the West Virginia Folklife Apprenticeship Program. In the second year of the program, seven apprentice pairs from across the Mountain State will study traditions including old-time banjo of central West Virginia, seed-saving, and midwifery. The Apprenticeship Program offers up to a $3,000 stipend to West Virginia master traditional artists or tradition bearers working with qualified apprentices on a year-long in-depth apprenticeship in their cultural expression or traditional art form. These apprenticeships aim to facilitate the transmission of techniques and artistry of the forms, as well as their histories and traditions.
