Mission Statement

The Mission of the Traditional Voices Group is to collect, document and preserve the cultural and musical heritage, and the traditions that are unique to the communities of the Toe River Valley, but not excluding the surrounding areas that are a part of the Appalachian Mountains of Western North Carolina.

The gathering of oral histories, documentations, art and music will be available through the use of text, audio and video recordings for the purpose of scholastic pursuits, pride and unity of community and for present and future generations to understand the significance of what and how these areas have contributed to society.
