Keeping Appalachian Heritage Alive
Established in 1989 as a nonprofit organization, the purpose of Catch the Spirit of Appalachia (CSA) is to awaken people of all ages to their self-worth, to the wisdom of their ancestors, and the beauty of their natural environment and culture. Situated in Jackson County, North Carolina, our organization’s main thrust is to draw attention to the need to conserve, protect and save the natural and human heritage of the local mountain people in our region. Our mission is to treasure and preserve our regional Appalachian heritage and traditions through music and the arts.
We raise funds for prizes and scholarships for our youth, to encourage them to educate themselves in Appalachian Studies, to encourage the continuance of traditional craftsmanship and traditional music, all the time "Planting the seeds of heritage through the arts and community service."
