That's "Appal" for Appalachia (don't pronounce it appal-AY-chuh).

This is an organization based in Whitesburg, Kentucky. It's a small town without much to draw anyone to it - though I do like the mountains in the area, the ones not ruined by strip-mining.

But this group is worth a look anyway. Every year, in May, they host a festival called "Seedtime." I've never been but if I was going to be in the U.S. this year I would definitely try to go. It's lots of great people and great musicians. I don't think most people get to see this kind of American culture very often.

So, if you're interested, stop by their website and maybe learn something new about rural America, hear some good music, or find a good cause to support!
