Photo exhibit Saturday, June 22 through Saturday, August 31
Click here for more info

The exhibit features photography and stories of Southern blues, gospel, and old-time musicians collected during the past 20 years by Tim Duffy, founder and executive director of the Music Makers Relief Foundation.

The exhibit challenges how poverty, geography, and age have limited the exposure of these artists. Featuring blues musicians from Virginia, North Carolina, and beyond, the exhibit educates and engages viewers in the cultural history of many Southern music traditions, including the treasured influences of African-American artists such as Winston-Salem blues guitarist Guitar Gabriel, old-time fiddler Benton Flippen, North Carolina Heritage Award Winner and National Heritage Fellow Etta Baker, Piedmont blues guitarists John Dee Holeman, Aldophus Bell, and Boo Hanks, Old-Time Medicine Show performer Willa Mae Buckner, old-time band The Carolina Chocolate Drops, Native American singers Charley Lowrey and Pure Fe, and blues vocalist Cora Mae Bryant. In addition to the photographs, visitors are invited to visit a supplemental website which provides audio and video components for each panel.
