Time Travelers
Bringing the Past to the Present

A celebration of the diverse heritage, nature and history in Southwest Virginia
through song, music, storytelling and traditional games

We started as a group to create self-employment for youth using storytelling, interpretation, and performance

We became the voice of a rich mountain heritage allowing us to mine our creativity and abilities.

Learning with Youth

The Time Travelers bring the past to the present. Originating in one of the "Last Great Places," the Clinch River area of the Appalachian Mountains, students work with the Clinch River Educational Center in Partnership with Dungannon Development Commission, Inc. With the goal of using their talents and creativity to generate self-employment, these students bring a unique experience of storytelling, traditional dance, games and music to entertain and enlighten all ages.
