Country Blues & Dance
Throughout Piedmont and Appalachians there have existed for centuries shared musical traditions that were equally popular among rural blacks and whites. This program explores the roots and connections of these regional rural music and dance traditions as expressed in the artistry of contemporary masters of tradition. The program will feature harmonica wizard and 2017 National Heritage Fellow Phil Wiggins and his blues house party ensemble featuring the dancing of Junious Brickhouse, and North Carolina songsters extraordinaire, the Harris Brothers.
