Exhibition: We Are the Music Makers!
Friday, April 6 | 6:00pm
Opening Reception: We Are the Music Makers!
Studio 209 | First Friday
We are the Music Makers! educates and engages viewers in the cultural history of Southern traditional music. The exhibition features photo and audio documentation of Southern Roots musicians active in the past 20 years, all photographed and recorded by Tim Duffy in his quest to preserve Southern traditional music by partnering with the artists who make it. The multi-media materials highlight questions of how poverty, geography and age have limited the exposure of these artists, causing the widespread idea that the musical traditions they perform have “died out.”
