The Folklife Resource Center considers the dissemination and promotion of traditional music a major aspect of our mission. South Carolina is home to a rich musical heritage, boasting a wide variety of music from the Sea Islands on the coast to the rolling hills of the Appalachian Mountains. Music is a vibrant part of South Carolina life and represents social, religious, occupational, and family bonds. This music series was launched from an exhibit developed in 2003 - “Considerable Grace: Fifteen Years of Folk Heritage Awards.” What began as a companion piece to a temporary exhibition has grown into a regular, self-sustaining series, with subsequent volumes planned for future release. Initially funded by South Carolina Humanities.
