The Mountain Music Ambassadors, from The Kentucky Center for Traditional Music at Morehead State University, have completed five tours to The People's Republic of China over the past seven years, thanks to the work of the Center. The Mountain Music Ambassadors lineup is comprised of current and former students from the Kentucky Center for Traditional Music (KCTM), which preserves, teaches, and helps to develop and celebrate our rich mountain heritage. KCTM provides a nationally accredited, quality education in traditional music styles including bluegrass, old time, country, ballad singing, blues, Celtic, Western swing and more. The music in which KCTM is most involved stems from, or is influenced by, music identified with the southern Appalachian mountain region. Morehead State University's Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Traditional Music program teaches students about traditional music forms and culture from both a historical and contemporary perspective; a minor is also available.
