Old Helton School Hog Stomp

This friendly and fun event is held at the Old Helton School, a small brick and frame building that serves as a community center for the northern area of Ashe County. It's very popular with local folks, and the small classroom turned concert hall is frequently filled to overflowing by 7:00 pm.

Despite the fact that there are numerous participating musicians - as many as fifteen at times - the event is more a performance than it is a jam session. The musicians stand while they play, and there is a very clear delineation between the performing musicians and the appreciative audience members who show up to listen and dance to the music.

The music at the Old Helton School is typically presented in two sessions, each lasting about an hour or a little more.
