The Montreat Conference Center is a delightful place to hold this program . . . it’s a lovely facility and has delicious food. The instructors are knowledgeable and entertaining. I enjoyed the music, sing-a-longs, and the opportunity to play a dulcimer.

This was a great program. The instructors were so passionate and fun to be with. They took the time to answer any questions we had. The facility was great. I just enjoyed being in such a beautiful place. Can't wait until next time. The food was very good. One of the best things about Road Scholar is all the people one meets.

This program has a wonderful variety of music, field trips to local cabins and extremely qualified instructors who teach in a refreshing 'ah shucks' delivery. Behind those cute little stories and jokes is a treasure trove of information. We learned so much with smiles, songs & laughter throughout. At break times it was difficult to compare to the other offerings of the week because ours was hands down the BEST! What a winner this class is!

If someone is interested in learning more about their Scots-Irish heritage, this is a good course to learn the history and about the early settlers.
