In northern Arkansas you’ll find the Ozark Mountains, and in the Ozarks you’ll find Mountain View, the “Folk Music Capital of the World.”
Famous for its preservation of traditional music since the 1870s, the Arkansas Folk Festival since the 1960s, and the Ozark Folk Center since 1973, the town remains a haven for local art and culture.
While visiting Mountain View, you’ll likely find musicians in town square playing fiddles, mandolins, dulcimers and other acoustical instruments into the late evening. When travel restrictions lift, musicians from across the globe will return to experience the magic of mountain tradition and song.
