At the AAC's Troublesome Creek Stringed Instrument Company (TCSIC), we are building fine instruments, using the best materials and people in the country. While deeply rooted in the ancient musical traditions of these hills, our work is driven by the belief that an individual can take recovery into his or her own hands, and then build something beautiful.

Since the AAC introduced Culture of Recovery in 2018, we have instructed hundreds of individuals in blacksmithing, ceramics, and luthiery - offering them new focus and healing. And of these many success stories, an especially talented group were selected and have gone on to become luthiers at Troublesome Creek. And we couldn’t be happier about that!
