The Cowee School’s summer concert series has become known as a regional destination for traditional mountain music. In its second year, the Heritage Center at Historic Cowee School has been attracting some of the best bluegrass, country, and southern folk performances around.
With the help of the North Carolina Rural Economic Development Division, the Cowee Music venue will soon be undergoing some much needed improvements, ensuring the facility will continue offering top notch entertainment for years to come.
Macon County Commissioners formally voted to work with Cowee School to utilize a $24,120 “Underserved and Limited Resource Communities” grant. The county agrees to aid Cowee School by providing initial funds for the grant, which will be reimbursed by the N.C. Department of Commerce.
