SMOKE is the story of the conflict that arose from an effort to create an association of tobacco farmers designed to force companies to pay higher prices for their crop. During the early 1900’s, the struggle affected every family in the region known as the Black Patch. The conflict gave birth to the infamous "Night Riders", masked vigilantes who terrorized farmers that refused to join the movement through intimidation, vandalism, destruction of property, and eventually, violence. Long suppressed, the story now unfolds through the words and music of SMOKE. The musical score consists of original compositions and new arrangements of traditional folk music and will be performed with live period instruments in acoustic bluegrass-style, further enhancing historical accuracy.
