“Mountain Music Roots: The Beginnings of Traditional Old-Time Music”
Appalachian music developed from a variety of influences and can be as varied as the landscapes so closely tied to the region and its culture. Ray Adams, leader of a weekly old-time music jams and long-time afficionado of traditional mountain music, will guide an exploration of the music genre, its origins, and influential players. An array of tunes will be played and given context in this one-of-a-kind presentation.
All Things Appalachia is a monthly program series at the Transylvania County Library exploring the people, natural world, culture, and history of the southern Appalachian region. Presenters include experts in the fields of history, ecology, outdoor recreation, and more. The programs are on the first Thursday evening of most months at 6:30 pm in the Rogow Room. Each program lasts approximately one hour. These free programs are supported by the Friends of the Library
