Description

Join West Virginia Public Broadcasting for an evening at the West Virginia Culture Center celebrating both old-time and country music!

The evening will include a reception in the Great Hall, extended previews of Ken Burns’ upcoming documentary County Music and WVPB’s documentary film In Tune: A Community of Musicians. There also will be live music by special guests and a panel discussion. The event is free and open to the public.

The panel discussion will feature Susan Shumaker, (a member of the Ken Burns production team), Emily Hilliard (West Virginia State Folklorist), Russ Barbour (Producer, In Tune), along with Kim Johnson and Cody Jordan, old-time musicians featured in In Tune.
