Camsco Music
Camsco Music is dedicated to bringing you the finest traditional and tradition-based folk music in the country. We specialize in distributing those artists whose music is independently produced. In many instances, you can find these recordings only at a performance of the artist.

Captain Fiddle Publications

Ryan founded Captain Fiddle Publications in 1985 with the publication of The Fiddler's Almanac, a general reference source about fiddlers and fiddling which can be presently found in over 3000 libraries in the United States and Canada. Since that time he has written several more books about fiddling and folk music.

Carter Fold
Since 1974, the Carter Music Center has presented programs of old time and bluegrass music every weekend.  Formally established in 1979, the Center's objective is to promote old time music and pay tribute to the Original Carter Family (A.P., Sara, and Maybelle Carter).  The site includes programming information, photos, history, and information on the region.
