Your principal Innkeeper will be Linda Waltner (Keep). She is our expert on stringed instruments and Celtic and Appalachian music. A former orchestra teacher in the public schools, she is an active member of several stage performance groups, Fire In The Kitchen (specializing in Appalachian Celtic music, and seen on PBS's Song of the Mountains), Symphony of the Mountains, and previously The Wire Kwire (a group specializing in Appalachian Hammer Dulcimer music). Consider her your resource in finding lessons, sheet or recorded music, unusual instruments, or performance artists in the Southern Appalachian region. She is also our horticulturalist and best cook.
