The Appalachian String Band Festival at Camp Washington Carver is also known simply as "Clifftop." The annual get-together is as much a musician's village as it is an official event. Players of Old Time mountain music predominate, although the sounds of Cajun, swing, reggae and bluegrass fill the air as well.
