Angeline Schwab

Angie Schwab has been tapped as the new Folkmoot Executive Director.

The Folkmoot USA Board of Directors voted unanimously March 25 to hire Schwab as our official new Executive Director!  After the departure of Karen Babcock from the post earlier in the year, Angie has ably served on an interim basis.

Angie is a fantastic addition to the team, with a background in cultural enrichment and economic development.  She’s the ideal leader for Folkmoot as we grow from a world class annual festival into a year round staging ground that seeks to change lives through cultural engagement in Western North Carolina and beyond.

You can read more about Angie in recent stories from Smoky Mountain News and The Mountaineer.

Come meet her in person at our May Day festival on May 2nd!
