The Beautiful Music All Around Us with Stephen Wade
Combining images, live music and spoken narrative, this presentation brings viewers along on Stephen Wade's 18-year journey into musical traditions across the American South. Introducing the largely unknown players and singers whose performances of traditional songs and tunes were captured on early Library of Congress field recordings, Stephen Wade shares stories of tunes, creators and communities that speak to the interconnectedness of American lives. Light refreshments will be served, and Wade will sign copies of his book, "The Beautiful Music All Around Us: Field Recordings and the American Experience," following the presentation.
