letcher county Pick & Bow
Our after-school Appalachian music program, Letcher County Pick and Bow, puts banjos, fiddles, guitars and mandolins in the hands of many students every year. Letcher County Pick & Bow is a partnership primarily with Cowan Community Center and Hemphill Community Center, with hopes for expansion in the future. This program is free and part of Appalshop’s broader mission to foster pride and connection to Appalachian arts and culture.
