sarah howardSarah Howard (Mountain Duet Singing) is a fiddler, singer/songwriter and educator from Perry County, Kentucky.  She was one of our first Cowan Creek Mountain Music School students.  At 13 she studied fiddle with Ray Slone through a Kentucky Folklife apprenticeship and later learned from Art Stamper. Sarah joined the CCMMS faculty in 2007 and has taught harmony singing, fiddle and old time stringband.   She performs and records with her parents, brother Ron and his wife Kinsee as the Howard Family, a bluegrass gospel string band.


Our first new song “Divided We Fall” comes from faculty member Don Rogers.  And visiting master Sam Gleaves gives us “Welcome as the Flowers in May”. Have you written a new song in the last couple of years?  All music school faculty, teaching assistants and students are invited to share.

New songs from Larah Helayne, our 2019-2020 Charlie Whitaker Memorial Apprentice and teaching assisant Pierceton Hobbs.
