Fiddler and banjo player Sarah Bryan, will play old-time music at various locations throughout the Old Salem historic district during the day.  She will be particularly sharing traditional tunes played for generations in the communities around Winston-Salem. Sarah is the Director of the North Carolina Folklife Institute, a nonprofit founded in 1974 to document and help perpetuate the folk heritage of all North Carolinians.






NC Folk promotes the preservation, appreciation and understanding of the folklife heritage and culture in North Carolina. We do this through documentation projects, festival production, community education programming, research, print, and audio publications, and cultivating a vast network of community and folk arts organizations in North Carolina. In our four decades of programming we’ve:

  • Produced North Carolina’s first statewide folklife festival
  • Documented and recorded hundreds of North Carolina tradition bearers
  • Helped produce compilations of North Carolina folk musicians
  • Empowered North Carolinians through community documentation
